About the Data Analytics Bootcamp
As a disruptive innovation, our core education program, the Port-au-Prince Data Analytics Bootcamp makes data science education simpler, more affordable, and more accessible to youth in Haiti. Our Bootcamp targets both students who are served by traditional higher education institutions and those who cannot access them, and employers who are demanding 21st century skills, with the overall objective of strengthening the employability opportunities for youth living in vulnerable conditions in Haiti.
Ayiti Analytics successfully launched Haiti's first Data Analytics Bootcamp in 2020, placing 100% of the 11 program graduates within analytical roles in Haiti.
Launched March 9, 2020, the Pilot Data Analytics Bootcamp focused on training young women and men in Haiti in the highly demanded skills of data science and analytics. Through project-based learning and individualized support from instructors, students received instruction in the fundamentals of data science and were given the opportunity to apply their skills to important problems in Haiti. Launching the country’s first graduate-level analytics bootcamp, the Port-au-Prince based team accomplished an incredible feat despite the usual infrastructural challenges and the additional strains posed by COVID-19 (The Haitian Times, 2020).
Watch the Virtual Capstone Project Presentations for a preview of what students were able to accomplish. Students selected their capstone projects based on their personal interests. They identified real-world problems and used data to derive insights to address those problems.
About the Campaign
Help support the team in launching the 2nd edition of the Port-au-Prince Data Analytics Bootcamp with local employer partner Digicel, and community partners École Supérieure d'Infotronique d'Haïti and Kay Tita.
Traditional higher education programs train those who are able to pay, we train those who display merit, irrespective of their socioeconomic status. As such, the Data Analytics Bootcamp is offered at a highly subsidized rate, made possible by in-kind contributions from Ayiti Analytics and contributions from individual donors who believe in our mission.
The 2021 program begins May 3, 2021. Help us meet our remaining fundraising goal of $6,400 to make world class data science education accessible to 20 talented youth in Haiti.
