Get Involved Roundup
March 23, 2015

Dear Overachievers,

Look - it's only March and already hundreds of you around the world have participated in local DataKind Chapter events this year, using your data skills to tackle tough humanitarian challenges with some amazing organizations.

From your quickfire data advice for nonprofits at the Project Accelerators in Singapore, Dublin and the UK to your nonprofit data prepping at the DataJams in DC and the Bay Area to your data analysis, exploration, and prototyping for three nonprofits at the recent weekend Bangalore DataDive - we are blown away by your commitment to giving back!

And let's not forget all the DataCorps volunteers here in New York currently working on six month projects to help social change organizations use data science to transform their work and their sector.

But the crazy part is - you're just getting started!

There are five, yes FIVE, DataDives coming up around the world so don't put down your laptop just yet.

Check out the upcoming volunteer opportunities below and tweet @DataKind or email us if you have one you'd like us to add to the list!

In awe,
The DataKinders
