Description

Florida Data Science for Social Good (FL-DSSG) program hosted at the University of North Florida blends data science and technology design to inform and solve important social problems in Northeast Florida. FL-DSSG program is an intensive 12-week internship that invites students to tackle data-rich projects that have the potential for substantial social impact. The internship program runs from June 4th to August 24th, supports eight interns, and four nonprofit organizations. Each project addresses a wicked problem facing Jacksonville residents, such as public health, children welfare, generational poverty, and at-risk youths.

At the event, FL-DSSG interns will discuss findings and reveal insights gained from the Baptist Health, Family Support Services, Girls Inc. of Jacksonville, and The Performers Academy projects. 2018 FL-DSSG internship program is funded by the Nonprofit Center for Northeast Florida and the University of North Florida. 2018 FL-DSSG Big Reveal event is sponsored by Agile Thought, a software consulting firm. All are welcome to attend. For more information about the FL-DSSG, please visit http://dssg.unf.edu.
