Volunteer opportunity description

The NYC Open Data Team is looking for 10-15 volunteers to become NYC Open Data Queens Borough Ambassadors from August - November 2019 as a part of a pilot programming initiative called Data Counts in partnership with the Queens Public Library and civic technology nonprofit BetaNYC. Apply by next Tuesday July 16th via this form.

The goals of this pilot as a part of the Data Counts Program are to: (1) pilot a train-the-trainer approach to scaling up efforts at teaching communities about NYC Open Data and (2) to raise awareness about Census 2020.

Borough Ambassadors will: 

  • Attend a training led by BetaNYC on 07/22 from 5:30-7:30pm to learn how to lead an Open Data 101 community training in Long Island City (Queens)
  • Lead a minimum of three 90-minute community trainings in Queens Public Library branches between August - November 2019

If you're interested we encourage you to apply by next Tuesday July 16th via this form. If selected you will be notified no later than Thursday July 18th and expected to join the training on July 22nd. Please email: aschmoeker@cityhall.nyc.gov with any questions.

Requirements

To be a successful Borough Ambassador you will need to be able to attend the training on 07/22 mentioned above, pass BetaNYC's certification criteria for providing Open Data 101 community trainings and lead three 90-minute community trainings in Queens Public Library branches between August - November 2019. No prior experience with Open Data or teaching is required; though seasoned Open Data users and community leaders are encouraged to apply.

You need not be a resident of Queens to apply - there is no residency requirement to be involved, though we do require you to be able to attend the BetaNYC training in Long Island City on 07/22 and the Queens community trainings you will lead.
