Connecticut Data Collaborative

Program Name: Hartford Youth Data Fellowship

The Hartford Youth Data Fellowship is a program for Hartford youth ages 17-24 that provides them with the tools and experience they need to engage and analyze data about their communities. The program is managed by the nonprofit CT Data Collaborative through the Hartford Data Collaborative (HDC), a network of Hartford area non-profit organizations, government agencies, and philanthropic partners that facilitates data sharing and integration among its partners.

HDC partners with schools and youth-serving organizations in Hartford to recruit youth to participate in a five-month after-school program with workshops about data literacy, analysis, and visualizations. Youth serve as co-researchers and share their experiences growing up in Hartford and its impact on their development in their data insights. The fellowship program addresses a need for increased data literacy among residents, provides Hartford youth with career development opportunities, and allows them to create a data project that can be part of their resume or portfolio. The program culminates in a Data Walk where community members and city leaders engage in local data and data sharing efforts and hear the insights of Hartford youth.

The 2024 program will end in early June 2024, with recruiting for the 2025 cohort starting in October.

Supports Available Through Program: We provide stipend payments, bus passes, computer/device to use for work projects.
