Fall 2018 — Workshop #7 > Mapping Overlooked Community Assets

December 4, 2018

Andres Alvear and Janaya Crevier from MAPSCorps said that 20 and 30% of community assets are not included in data sets available when you purchase them. They are invisible.

 

Founded by Dr. Stacey Lindau  (University of Chicago) in 2009, started as query of what community research is available to people in communities. When discovering that many, many assets where overlooked in standard data sets for purchase, MAPCorps focused on gathering that missing, invisible data – moreover, it employed youth to take on that task. 

 

After becoming a non-profit in 2016, this year (2018) released its first Community Asset Report – explore in MAPCorps website
