Mapping Community Assets To Close The Information Gap And Provide Meaningful Youth Employment and Experiential Learning

MAPSCorps produces high-quality data about community assets that everyone can use to find local resources and improve the human condition. MAPSCorps trains and employs high school students to work as community data scientists who use mobile technology to map all of the public-facing businesses and organizations serving their community. By making sure every public-facing business is on the map, MAPSCorps promotes health and economic vitality by providing an annual census of resources used by doctors, nurses, social workers, community planners, teachers, governments, and residents. Founded at the University of Chicago as a community-engagement project, MAPSCorps has now mapped more than 40,000 businesses and organizations in Chicago, New York City, Detroit, and parts of North Carolina.
