Providence Public Library
Log Number: LG-250160-OLS-21
Leveraging and expanding on previous Providence Public Library (PPL) work in data visualization, data analysis, and data programming for diverse youth and adults, PPL will seed an innovative, responsive, holistic education program called Data For Good in partnership with institutions across the country. Data skills are increasingly fundamental to a number of jobs and industries and in daily life. Concurrently, there is growing recognition of the potential for today’s wealth of data to serve as a powerful tool for addressing critical and emerging social issues and driving positive change. Data for Good programming has the potential to engage and impact teens and adults across a broad age spectrum, according to individual community’s needs, demands, and priorities. Benefits to partner institutions, communities, and their learners will include empowering community members with data skills that are increasingly broadly relevant across industries, occupations, and daily life.
