Upcoming A Day in the Life Programs – Sign up now!
Significance Labs’ A Day in the Life Program offers technologists a unique opportunity to connect with low-income Americans.
What is it?
There are 2 million New Yorkers who live in families earning less than $25,000/year, and at Significance Labs, we believe that technology could be better tailored to their unique circumstances.
A Day in the Life gives you a chance to spend a Saturday getting to know a New Yorker from a low-income community.
We’re working with families who will be your host, inviting you into their homes and neighborhoods, share a meal with you, and give you a glimpse of their day-to-day lives.
You’ll see how they use technology and think about how that could be re-imagined to better serve them. Simple conversations and new perspectives can inspire fresh ideas.
And you’d be in good company. President Obama has begun a similar A Day in The Life initiative, ”getting out of the White House” and spending a day with an ordinary American.
Sessions will be held this summer on Saturday July 26 and Saturday August 9.
They take place from 10:00 am – 4:30 pm.
You’ll participate in a short orientation session where you’ll get to know your hosts, travel to their community and share a meal together, and then return for a short debrief session.
And we’ve done it before – April’s session of A Day in the Life was a great success.
Sign up is easy and free, but spots are limited and allocated first come first served.
Gain perspective. Understand new challenges. Uncover opportunities.
