You will collect data to demonstrate our impact, if any, and to improve how we work with the communities. This includes spending time in the communities before, during, and after the installations, talking to the community members about their experiences, and documenting feedback using best practices. 

Your role will expand based on the anecdotal evidence and results from these full impact assessments.
