Empowering youth to exercise autonomy and ownership in sustainability education and entrepreneurship using data science.
We encourage youth anywhere to have a voice in building and sustaining their own future by taking control of their learning environment.
Fostering the desire to learn from each other to fund and launch social enterprises and moonshot projects that benefit humanity and the planet.
Nxt Wave Founders (NWF) is set to provide broader and inclusive options for young people to work on a range of climate change projects using data science to investigate the mysteries in big data, earn decent wages, and get valuable opportunities to harness the power of Ai and ML in the service of humanity and the environment.
The Deep Data Detectives (D3), a flagship initiative of our nonprofit, supports our partners accelerating the local economy through on-the job-skills applying multi-disciplinary training, local entrepreneurship and environmental protection. D3 provides immersions in nature and communities to foster the Nxt Wave of Data Science and Climate Change Leaders, Builders and Entrepreneurs allowing them to prioritize MISSIONS over Degrees. Since inception in 2020, NWF has partnered with schools, colleges, communities, startups and businesses to develop a wealth creation pathway from middle school to early career and entrepreneurship. Pairing sustainability and data science with lived experience and expertise to collectively understand the challenges communities face is essential to charting our economic mobility pathway forward.
We serve young people who want to repair past injustices and transform the future together.
In addition to coming from economically challenging circumstances, our D3s face other daunting and complex inequalities. More than half are being raised by single parents and many experience learning, mental or physical disabilities; had to learn English as a second language and acculturate to a new country.
D3s are under-represented in higher education and professional careers, have few examples of academic persistence and are hoping to be the first in their family to attend college. They, however, exhibit a burning desire to contribute to society and help their families achieve safer and healthier lives.
The D3 Project is a platform where students hangout to learn data science with each other, collaborate on projects, earn moonshot grants and incentives for completing their work and connect with talented folks building a sustainable future without poverty!
Calculating our carbon footprint is the first step towards climate protection to free us from deeper poverty. But, there is so much we can do together!
Reduce and Offset emissions. Educate, Communicate and Engage. Showcase Your Commitment. The Future is not one day! The Future is Now!

Credits: MIT Management Sloan School. Why It Matters: The ability to be an innovator doesn’t vary across race, gender, or income groups — but circumstances do. Many of the children in the under-represented groups could have grown up to be inventors, but didn’t, leaving us with a generation of “lost Einsteins.”
