Summer Monitoring and Evaluations Internship with Stipend with Institute for Transportation and Development Policy for Residents of NY, NJ, VA, DC or MA

Position description

The Institute for Transportation and Development Policy (ITDP) promotes sustainable and equitable transport worldwide. ITDP is a nonprofit organization headquartered in New York City with regional offices in Kenya, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico and the United States, as well as a Global Program office based in Washington, DC. More information about ITDP can be found at www.itdp.org.

ITDP’s Global Program is seeking a Monitoring and Evaluations (M&E) Intern. ITDP’s M&E program measures the impact of work done by the entire organization. This effort includes tracking the publications, events, infrastructure changes, and policy changes done by each regional office, estimating the cumulative impacts of those interventions, and organizing in-depth evaluations of particular projects. The M&E Intern will be responsible for assisting with the day-to-day tasks of each of those work areas. They will also be responsible for identifying and pursuing opportunities to improve those workflows, taking ownership over sections of the process, as appropriate.

The M&E Intern will report directly to the Senior Research Associate responsible for M&E. They will work with the M&E Working Group (a team that includes a representative from each ITDP regional office), as well as ITDP’s Development team.

The internship will last from May 2022 to August 2022, with a possibility of extension depending on academic eligibility through May 2023. ITDP is working entirely remote because of the ongoing pandemic, and therefore the internship will be virtual until we safely welcome our teams back to the office. The intern will temporarily work remotely as well until we reopen our offices. During the temporary remote working, we are open to candidates working remotely from one of the following states only: New York, New Jersey, Virginia, Washington, D.C or Massachusetts. The intern must be available to work in our Washington, D.C. or New York City office when they reopen, likely in Fall 2022, if the internship is extended. A stipend is available of $400 per week. A computer will be provided during the internship, if needed.
