Description

ABOUT THE POSITION: The Data and Evaluation Manager helps ensure that the organization is fulfilling its mission by performing data analysis, generating insights, developing reports, and managing the organization’s data infrastructure. The Data and Evaluation Manager works with the Director of Data and Evaluation to help the organization to understand the effectiveness of its programs and continuously improve its impact. The Data and Evaluation Manager is a key member of the organization’s Central Operations team.

ABOUT THE LITERACY LAB: The Literacy Lab is a fast-paced, Washington, DC-based non-profit organization with a mission to provide low-income children with individualized reading instruction by utilizing the talents of AmeriCorps members and Leading Men Fellows to improve their literacy skills, leading to greater success in school and increased opportunities in life. We partner with school districts to add capacity in high-need schools to close the literacy achievement gap for children before third grade. We continue to build a collaborative and inspiring environment in which student-centeredness, DEI growth, common purpose, and community thrive.

THE LITERACY LAB’S COMMUNITY IMPACT: The education system in the United States continues to be deeply impacted by a long history of unjust policies that socio-economically disinvest in communities of color. The Literacy Lab’s mission is to address inequities by providing students of color with individualized reading instruction to improve their literacy skills. We believe that when young people of all races and from different economic brackets have equitable access to robust educational and professional development opportunities, they will be more successful as adults and their communities will be more resilient and prosperous. Since 2009, The Literacy Lab has provided evidence-based literacy interventions to more than 30,000 children from marginalized communities to master early literacy skills. By embedding rigorously trained tutors in pre-K classrooms and elementary schools to tutor students of color from pre-K through third grade, The Literacy Lab strives to create a full six-year continuum of support for young readers.
