Host Site Overview
EARN helps working families save and invest in their futures.
Host Site Project
EARN’s mission is to help our clients establish a lifelong habit of savings. EARN does this by creating different programs (“products”) to encourage saving among working families. In close collaboration with the Director of Research and Innovation, the New Sector Fellow will work to understand the effectiveness of our programs, as well as to identify and test the most effective psychological, behavioral, social, and skill-based interventions to create successful Savers. The Fellow will assist by conducting primary and secondary research to inform EARN’s current and future products. The fellow?s role will include data analysis on EARN’s programs to support internal operations, to share progress with external stakeholders, to track critical outcomes, and to make ongoing programmatic improvements. In addition, the Fellow will help develop and test new interventions. The fellow will also assist in evaluating which messages and channels of communication are most effective to maximize the appeal of EARN?s programs / products with potential clients.
