Research Intern, Healthy Start, Must be a HUB Zone Resident

Martha’s Table, for over 35 years, has offered a continuum of support — through which we offer access to healthy food and quality education — in order to strengthen the lives of children and their families, and build stronger, healthier communities.  Through our Healthy Start program, we provide nationally accredited, high-quality early education programming and the health and life supports to ensure a great start for children from 3 months to 13 years of age. Through a partnership with Mobius, LLC, we are seeking an individual to participate in a research project that will help Martha’s Table to expand its program offering to residents living in Washington, DC, specifically in Wards 7 and 8.
To provide the best possible services to families and children in Wards 7 and 8, there is a need to gain a depth and breadth of knowledge on high quality, evidence-based programs throughout the United States that specifically support families who are unable to access community and governmental supports because of under- or unemployment.  Martha’s Table Healthy Start program is interested in establishing a program that is geared toward families with babies (birth to six months old).
The Healthy Start Research Intern will conduct the necessary investigative work that will inform the design of such a program. The goal of the Baby & Me Information Project is to collect information, including best in class programming, for programs throughout the United States.
The Research Intern must reside in a historically underutilized business zone (HUB Zone). The intern will work onsite at Martha’s Table a minimum of 40 hours and a maximum of 45 hours per month. This works out to approximately 1.5 days per week.
Qualities we’re looking for:
Demonstrable experience in qualitative and quantitative research and assessment methodologies 
Use of excel and/or other statistical software 
Analytical thinker, excellent researcher 
Excellent written and verbal communication skills 
Positive energy and attitude; self-starter who is comfortable working independently 
Detail and task oriented
