Building a Service Model for a Successful Adjustment of Refugee Youth

The internship intends to build a service model for a successful adjustment of refugee youth through a systematic multi-method evaluation of a demonstration project delivered by MOSAIC. A total of forty youth (in four groups) will be recruited to a three]month program from July 2009 to June 2010. This internship offers a third]party evidence]based opinion of the effectiveness of MOSAICfs demonstration project. A triangulated mixed method approach will be employed which includes pre] and post]program focus group interviews with youth participants; personal and telephone survey of participants who complete the program at exit and three months after the completion respectively; personal interview of stakeholders who are involved in the program process; and field observations. Evidence]based feedback will be provided in regular meetings to staff so that they can make prompt and appropriate adjustments for the demonstration project. This internship will ensure the accountability of the NGO partners and the credibility of the results of the demonstration project.
