DataKind | Mapping Poverty to Beat It

Mapping Poverty to Beat It

Did you know that three out of every ten kids in our nation’s capitol live in poverty? That’s about 40 percent more than the national average!

Well, visionary HyeSook Chung and her second in command at DC Action for Children, Gwen Rubenstein, know it. They attended our DC DataDive in March 2012 and threw down a challenge: build visualizations of traditional well-being data for kids living in DC that can be used to fight this battle against poverty.

Partners in Education

Last night FCPS held a ceremony for Partners in Education and MentorWorks. My company, Mitretek, won an award for Career Connections!

Here are some pictures of me in action.

This year is coming to a close. Next year will be even better as a 7th grader from this year will head up the team next year. I'm pulling him back from the dark side. He wants to get Linux running on an old machine, make it his web server, and host a web site for the club. He's learning PHP now.

Volunteering at WAMU

Last night, Michael and Mark joined me for volunteering at WAMU. They're having their pledge drive. Our job was to answer phones. Michael won the award for best penmenship. Pictures were taken. They'll be up soon.

It was my second time and their first time there. Mark first call was from a cranky woman. Michael had fun talking to people.

I've been volunteering for years at WETA. Events like these are exciting. You get to meet people, like Annie, and get to know people like Bill, Christine, and Gary.

Volunteer at WAMU

tags: volunteer, WAMU

I'm gonna volunteer at WAMU. I've done this before. It's a great way to support public radio.

This pledge drive is from October 8th to 15th. I will go to a 17:30 to 20:00 shift, but i don't know which one yet, probably on the 11th or 12th.

I know some of you enjoy WAMU, so come join me.

Kerry Volunteer
