Quantitative Intern: Afterschool Program Evaluation

RFA is the local evaluator for twenty 21st Century Community Learning Centers. As the local evaluator, RFA produces mixed-methods reports that examine the implementation of the 21st Century afterschool and summer programs and outcomes related to student attendance, academic achievement, and behavior. In addition to quantitative evaluation report requirements, RFA conducts observations, interviews, and focus groups to develop snapshots of out of school time (OST) program quality for formative purposes.

RFA is currently seeking an intern to join our 21C evaluation team. Interns on this project will primarily work with the quantitative team to clean and analyze program participation, survey, and educational data. Duties include data cleaning, merging, and analysis using the statistical software, Stata. Interns will also contribute to evaluation report production. Training in Stata is provided.
