Event description

Description

NYC Youth Leadership Councils (YLCs)*, in partnership with The Mayor's Office for Data Analytics (MODA), will be hosting a free interactive workshop for high school students on the NYC Open Data platform as part of NYC Open Data Week 2019**.

NYC Open Data is the City’s free public data program - providing access to more than 2,000 datasets published by various City agencies. As part of an initiative to improve the accessibility, transparency, and accountability of City government, the Open Data platform makes the wealth of public data generated by various New York City agencies and other City organizations available for public use.

During our March 5th workshop, you'll have the chance to explore the NYC Open Data platform and all that it offers, learn more about real-world applications of public data, and begin developing your own community-improvement project that harnesses the power of Open Data! You'll also get to meet and network with staff members from NYC Service and MODA.

This event is open to all NYC high school students, and YLC members are highly encouraged to attend. Refreshments will be provided. Please be sure to bring a valid ID (e.g. student ID, IDNYC, driver's license, etc.).

If you are registering on behalf of multiple people, please email Tyler Rivera with a list of participants (first name, last name, school, YLC, and email) at trivera@vista.nyc.gov.




*This workshop is part 2 of NYC Service's Youth & City Government 3-part workshop series. The goal of this workshop series is to better connect young New Yorkers with city services and programs that will benefit them and help them better understand their communities. Part-3 will focus on OneNYC in partnership with the Mayor's Office of Sustainability, and will take place in May 2019. To learn more about YLCs, check out the NYC Service website here.


**Open Data Week is organized and produced by the NYC Open Data Program and BetaNYC. This week long event series takes place annually during the first week of March to celebrate New York City’s Open Data Law, which was signed into law on March 7, 2012, and International Open Data Day which is typically the first Saturday in March. Open Data Week acts as a week-long festival in different locations across NYC (and virtually!) bringing together various communities to have discussions, demos, trainings or other engagements to raise awareness about NYC Open Data as a free resource.
