UWA Bachelor of Philosophy (Mathematics and Statistics and Physics) student, Jesse Zhou, has developed a new tool to help non-profit organisations collect data to improve their services with atrisk youth.
Jesse built the data collection tool in the Mcusker Centre for Citizenship’s internship program and worked closely with the Save the Children’s Armadale Youth Intervention Program to help them collect important data in a simpler format.
The tool allows for a greater analysis in reporting, something the team admitted had been lacking. Inspired by the work of his colleagues, Jesse was pleased he could offer a different set of skills to develop a tool that not only supports youth workers with their day-to-day work but also provides tangible insight into the overall success of the AYIP model.
“As a student studying mathematics and physics I’ve always wondered how I could give back or apply what I’m learning to create something important,” he said.
“I realise now my ability to give back to the community is much greater than I had imagined.”
The University is proud of the work that Jesse has developed.
