ASAP Seeking Research Fellow

ASAP/After School Activities Partnerships is a small, non-profit organization with the duel mission to 1) recruit volunteers and organizations to lead after school clubs to keep at-risk Philadelphia youth safe and active after school in an effort to decrease incidence of violence among unsupervised youth and 2) to disseminate to parents and caregivers information on after school resources, including an annual directory of programs published in the Philadelphia Daily News.  Now in its seventh year, ASAP is the fastest-growing provider of extended-day enrichment programs in Philadelphia, focusing on citywide initiatives in chess, Scrabble, dance, and yoga, among other activities. ASAP is seeking a Stoneleigh Fellow to assist with the creation of a data tracking and collection system with two purposes: 1) to track academic achievement, attendance, behavior, and demographics, which will guide ASAP’s strategies and programming; and 2) to expand data collection efforts on other non-ASAP citywide after school programs to ensure a comprehensive annual directory. The fellowship award would be commensurate with education and experience.  To apply for this fellowship, please go to the Stoneleigh website and complete the Individual Application. Send it along with a resume and brief statement of interest to Maria Walker at by November 10, 2009.
