Description

Met Council is one of New York’s top human service agencies helping 100,000 New Yorkers
fight poverty each year. Our services include crisis intervention, legal and immigration assistance, benefits outreach
and enrollment, kosher food pantries and vouchers, career training and assistance, domestic
violence counseling, affordable housing, home care, and home repairs.

The Data Department is charged with the rollout and implementation of AWARDS, Met Council’s database for tracking client demographic and service information. Our goal is to extract, analyze, and utilize statistical data from the AWARDS database and other sources to illuminate agency performance and better understand trends among our client base. This information helps us improve our provision of services to those in need throughout New York City. It helps us to gain new and maintain existing funding streams. Data also helps our department to serve as a bridge between Met Council’s internal programs and the outside world.

Responsibilities

The primary purpose of the internship is to support the Data Department in shaping Met Council into a more data-driven organization. The intern will be responsible for projects that improve our ability to track and run reports on clients and services in AWARDS.
