Research Intern, Justice Program, US Programs
Models for Change, a multi-state juvenile justice system reform initiative that has been supported by the Foundation since 2003, has generated a large, varied and still-growing archive of grantee-produced tools and resources. While these materials are of great potential value to the field, they have never been properly organized, assessed, and curated. We need someone to do a deep dive into these materials to help us understand what we have and begin to organize and package them in ways that will support the spread of system reform nationwide.
Essential Responsibilities and Duties:
The intern will work with Justice Program staff and grantees to map and assess the Models for Change inventory of print and on-line products, reports, and tools; to make preliminary judgments about the quality, portability, and continued relevance of the materials; to create suites of materials by issue area; to determine if there are gaps in resources, if grant-produced materials are missing, and if existing materials need more polish, amplification or context to be useful; and to help create a long-term strategy for more effective dissemination, presentation and curation of the materials.
Other Duties and Responsibilities:
The intern will be expected to report clearly in writing to program staff regarding the archive and the progress of the organizing and curating work, and to help program staff think through ways to make better use of the inventory.
Knowledge, Skills, and Experience:
Research, writing and communication skills, and the ability to work with a team.
