As posted in the Harvard Graduate School of Education’s 2011 report, Pathways to Prosperity, “Based on a survey of several hundred employers, the report [Are They Ready to Work?] concluded that ‘Far too many young people are inadequately prepared to be successful.’” Employers are finding it increasingly difficult to hire high school and college graduates because they lack the soft skills necessary to succeed in a demanding work environment. Similarly, students are finding it difficult to build their soft skills due to a lack of professional influences in their social network. As a Volunteer Outreach Coordinator, it is part of my responsibility to help provide opportunities for these two diverse groups of individuals support each other.Read more

Using Technology to Help Communities Reach Their Goals

Numerous research institutions and organizations in the Boston area have the resources to amass large quantities of data that can be used to inform the public on various issues in communities such as public safety, public health, the economy, civic health, and education to name a few examples. This data has the potential to drive social change by influencing public policy officials. However, what do community organizations or residents do if they are unable to easily access these important sources of data?  

The Boston Foundation recognizes how important it is to democratize access to high quality data and information as well as make that data easy to visualize for the general public. On Tuesday, November 27, they unveiled their new website, BostonIndicators.org, at the Boston Hub of Innovation Forum.
