Some examples of volunteer opportunities to gain research experience and leadership skills include:

Volunteers can expect to spend a minimum of 1-3 hours a week on Hub projects.


Volunteer Spotlight: Northeast Student Data Corps

REAL volunteers working on the Hub’s newest initiative, the National Student Data Corps (NSDC), are helping to develop open source educational resources and provide other support for data science learners and educators at underserved institutions across the United States and beyond. NSDC volunteers have recorded video lectures on machine learning, curated data science use cases, served as mentors, and pioneered new initiatives to help others discover their passion for data science.


Thank you to all of our volunteers!
