Summer 2017 Internship Opportunity:

Applications are now open for a Summer 2017 internship for a specific project under the supervision of iEmpathize’s Education Director. This internship is a Prevention Program Evaluation Project. Specifically, the internship will focus on The Empower Youth Program, our exploitation prevention program for youth. The primary objectives of the project are: 1) to fulfill all processes related to the submission of a successful IRB application, 2) to improve processes on internal and external reporting mechanisms for student survey findings, and 3) to reorganize and assess findings gathered up to this time.

This project provides the opportunity to gain experience in the non-profit sector and in the education arena.  Build your resume with meaningful work that will prove your ability to contribute significantly to program evaluation while also making an impact for youth.
