Dear friends and colleagues, 
Data doesn’t tell you everything. In order to drive change, you have to understand the community’s perspective about the data and involve those you intend to serve.
The Data Center has known this for years. In fact, before Katrina, we began gathering community perspectives on our data and embedding it alongside the data points right on our web site. 
Now, more than a decade later, we are thrilled that students from the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts have chosen to illustrate what The New Orleans Youth Index means to them.
Check out these powerful and inspiring videos (And have some tissues handy) about the issues and realities faced by today’s youth told in the voice of the youth themselves.

Bringing you the data you need to make informed decisions,
The Data Center team 
Keisha Smith, Allison Plyer, Bernardo Espinosa, Caroline Heffernan, and Dabne Whitemore
