Research assistant Job at The Bridge Project, New York, NY

  • The Bridge Project
  • New York, NY

Job Description

Full job description

The Bridge Project seeks to solve child poverty in the US. Launched in June 2021 by The Monarch Foundation, it is New York’s first consistent, unconditional cash transfer program. The Bridge Project (TBP), a 501(c)3 organization, supports healthy development for babies during their first 1,000 days of life by providing their mothers with consistent, unconditional cash on a biweekly basis for three years.

The Bridge Project is currently serving 1100 babies and their mothers in NY state. In 2024, TBP is extending to other states naming Connecticut, Milwaukee, and the Appalachian regions. The Bridge Project is based on the belief that an investment in young babies has the potential to separate a whole generation from the toxic stresses of poverty during a crucial period of emotional and mental development, break intergenerational cycles of trauma, and allow future generations to grow into happy, healthy adults.

We are on our way to solving child poverty, and we are doing it with dignity, trust, and cash. The Bridge Project has been profiled in The New York Times, CBS, NY1-Spectrum News, Bloomberg, Live with Kelly and Ryan, and MarketWatch, among others. The Bridge Project was additionally one of Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas of 2022.
