Times are tough in the wake of COVID-19 and the current economic downturn. Many are looking to upgrade their skills to be more competitive in the job market or transition into new careers entirely. As the best online platform for learning data skills, DataCamp is uniquely able to help individuals navigate skill development opportunities from the safety of their homes. We’re making good on our commitment from May: For every yearly DataCamp subscription purchased during our half-off promo, we’re giving one away to a person in need.

Our mission to democratize data education for everyone

To support DataCamp’s mission of democratizing data skills, we offer affordable monthly and yearly subscriptions to our learning platform, and we’ve provided free data science education to over 300,000 students at no charge with DataCamp for the Classroom. Today, we’re excited to unveil a new initiative to help those financially impacted by COVID-19 or otherwise in need.

Serving communities in need with free DataCamp access

We’ve partnered with several organizations that serve a diverse range of communities and have one thing in common: their members need skills to get jobs and advance their careers during these difficult times. We’re donating annual DataCamp Premium subscriptions to these organizations in support of these communities. This allows us to help people who otherwise may never have known about us while fostering new relationships with organizations that align with our mission of democratizing data skills.

Recipients of free DataCamp subscriptions

Here are just a few of the fantastic organizations that will collectively receive over 10,000 annual DataCamp Premium subscriptions:

LaunchCode is a nonprofit creating economic opportunity by adding new talent to tech ecosystems across the nation.
