Become a Digdata volunteer
Can you help The Data Inspiration group inspire young minds across the UK?
We invite data professionals to develop data literacy, problem solving and storytelling skills, onsite at schools and colleges by taking part in the delivery of our data days.
Your valuable time, data knowledge and expertise will help students build confidence and develop skills that are not included in the current curriculum, whilst giving them visibility to a career vertical that they may not be aware of, considered or believed to be right for them.
Our mission is to educate and inspire young minds from all social and economic backgrounds of the exciting careers available in the data and analytics sector.
A great way to use your volunteering days!

It was great to see the outputs from the children over the two days and I thought there were some amazing presentations and also feel like many of the kids would have left the days having learnt some good things.
Brilliant way to spend 2 days changing young lives for the better.
I was blown away by the creativity and effectiveness of the presentations, it was exciting to see them story tell with data and communicate their findings clearly. This is one of the skills we are constantly working on in M&S with our teams. I hope the teachers are helping the pupils recognise that these less-technical data skills are very much in-demand in the workplace and will help set them apart in the future.
Such a great day and brilliant to be able to inspire the next generation.
Volunteering has shown me that the best way to learn is to teach. I came away with knowledge of the next generation of data professionals, with insights that reflected trends when managing, and informed me of what I can do as a hiring manager to adapt and build the next successful data function within a business. DigData are doing an amazing job of nurturing future talent and providing an opportunity for employers to play their part, at the same time as getting a step ahead for preparing to welcome these students into the workplace in the coming years.
A great privilege to be involved in a positive initiative looking to connect all the wonderful elements of data with future talent - a unique experience to see it delivered on such scale and rewarding to see the engagement and enthusiasm of the young students whilst giving something back to the community.
