We believe data-driven insights can help non-profits working in the areas of women’s education and health, keeping kids in school, relief and disaster work and more. Unlike for-profit companies, non-profit organizations often do not have the resources to train their employees on cutting-edge data science skills in their day-to-day work. Data Science Dojo started this non-profit fellowship make a small contribution to educating non-profit organizations in the latest data science skills.
We started this fellowship program as a ‘student and non-profit fellowship’. There was a growing realization that the brightest minds of our generation are working on making people click on online ads, social media posts and videos. Most of the attendees coming to our data science bootcamp were coming from for-profit companies.
We firmly believe that data science skills can be used for making a social impact. Check out this talk on AI for Social Good.
