Tableau Foundation is excited to announce the launch of Tableau Service Corps Mission Projects, a selective, application-only program for Tableau employees. Building upon the success of Tableau Service Corps, “Mission Projects” will allow one to two accepted employees per quarter to work onsite with a Tableau Foundation Mission Grant Partner for up to 3 weeks. Selected volunteers will engage in meaningful Tableau training, consulting, and Tableau-based project work, helping advance Tableau Foundation’s mission of using facts and analytical reasoning to solve world problems.
For the pilot, all projects will be with Tableau Foundation grant partners who have received donated software, services and financial support. Projects will be centered on building the nonprofit’s skills and capacity to use data.
Tableau will cover the cost of travel and lodging, as well as awarding paid volunteer leave for the duration of the project. Tableau Service Corps has provided tremendous value to our nonprofit community, and we hope that these extended pro bono engagements will allow our closest partners to have even more impact using data.
