Daan de Jong
As our Evaluation Assistant, Daan supports the evaluation team with the development and execution of evaluation plans, which includes designing and collecting measurement tools as well as data analysis and dissemination through report writing. Daan holds a Bachelor of Arts in European Studies from The Hague University in his home country The Netherlands.
In January 2017, he flew into Washington State from across the Atlantic Ocean to complete an internship at The Prosperity Agenda, during which he graduated from his European Studies program. His passion for social injustice in western societies and commitment to understanding inequality in the United States resulted in a permanent position at The Prosperity Agenda as the Evaluation Assistant. He said “it has been a dynamic, yet inspiring opportunity”.
Out of the office, you can find Daan designing and building furniture, playing his guitar, or discovering new places and cultures.
