Meet Our Volunteers
“Working with DataKind gave me the opportunity to use my skills to give back and help people with mental illness, an issue that I feel needs more attention. It also let me fulfill the data nerd in me, and was just a lot of fun to work on!”
“Ultimately the point of having technical skills is to use them to improve the world. Sometimes we can do that and get paid for it too, but having an outlet where we can be guaranteed to make a difference is very satisfying.”
