CAUSES needs student research volunteers!
CAUSES is seeking student volunteers for a research project. The project on economic development involves members of the DC community conducting focus groups on the five pillars of economic development. This is important research for us to learn more about the quality of life for our DC residents in indicators such as health, education, social and cultural amenities, environment and recreation, and information and transportation access. Volunteers will serve as notetakers. Good notetaking is an important part of the focus group analysis and we will be training you on this task. This will be a great experience for you to experience hands-on qualitative research methods.
The focus group dates are October 17 and November 7, 2015, and will be conducted in the Deanwood and Congress Heights neighborhoods from 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. UDC students only. Contact Arielle Gerstein for more information or to volunteer.Sierra Club Internship
