- We are looking for a volunteer or Intern in our Union or Morris county office to help us utilize our data warehouses to tell the story of juvenile justice reform and the children’s mental health crisis in marginalized communities of New Jersey. We currently have two data warehouses and are in need of an analyst to utilize the data to help us to tell the stories through graphs Charts and other analytic tools. Our data is currently housed in excel and we have typically utilize SPSS to manage and implement the data. We are particularly focused on developing an evaluation report which speaks to the accountability of two laws which were signed by the governors office approximately five years ago But are not being implemented appropriately. We would like to highlight those areas in an accountability report.
