Project Description:

Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles (JBBBSLA) provides Jewish volunteer, adult mentors to Jewish children and teens who would benefit from additional role-models and adult support. We would like to better understand what needs our families have in the way of additional supports and resources and, specifically we would like to know if they would take advantage of a program that would assist them in accessing individual and/or family counseling services. If yes, we want to learn whether the pilot we are considering is a model that would work for them, and/or to solicit additional feedback regarding how to meet these and other needs. We seek to hire a graduate student to help design and execute the outreach to gather information directly from families about their needs, interests, alignment with our services, etc. This may involve phone calls, focus groups and/or survey development and administration.

The ideal candidate would have experience with program evaluation, interviewing, research or marketing. A successful candidate will have outstanding rapport-building and communication skills (verbal and written), flexibility of thinking, courtesy and professionalism. S/he will also communicate with warmth, empathy and clarity, be a good listener with an ear for detail and the ability to ask additional, probing questions, discern responses accurately, and maintain confidentiality.
