The support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) with advanced proficiency in written and spoken Spanish and an MPH degree in health behavior or behavioral science is requested to complete this evaluation. The project evaluation will consist of assessing to what extent the families that completed the cycle of behaviors have improved the health and more specifically, the nutrition of children. The findings and recommendation from the program evaluation will contribute to the improvement of the work of the Ministry of Health to promote behavior change. The PCRV will design a research project including methodology, tools, and a research plan and submit a written analysis of how the behavior change program was implemented. The final report of the evaluation should describe key findings, conclusions, and recommendations. All reports, data collection tools and presentation materials must be written in Spanish.
Please note that departure dates and other details of this project could change because of the uncertainties as Peace Corps and local partners resume Volunteer operations. Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in Guatemala together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
