Graduate fellows will work with NYC Opportunity Programs and Evaluation team staff to support program and policy development, research, performance management/data, and evaluation tasks. Specific projects depend on the individual’s interests and background, as well as the needs of the office. Examples of specific responsibilities could include:
analyzing program performance data and fiscal data;
supporting the development of new initiatives through research;
preparing policy memos focused on poverty-related issues;
supporting design and implementation of strategies to advance equity through internal practices and City services
assisting in management of NYC Opportunity program evaluations and the evaluation of key mayoral initiatives, including creation of dissemination materials.
Graduate fellows will report to one assigned supervisor who will assist with prioritization and work flow, but assignments will come from across the office. Each graduate fellow will: work on several specific projects and/or develop an area of specialization; have opportunities to work independently and as part of a team; and fully participate in the activities of a fast- paced mayoral office.
