Abstract
This research project evaluates the program "Women at the Wheel", a driver education program designed to support refugee women reduce their mobility constraints once they arrive to the United States. I will study the effectiveness of the program on women's labor market integration, wellness, and empowerment.

Experimental Design
Experimental Design
This is a pilot intervention. We will interview 100 Syrian refugee women of which 50 will be assigned to treatment through a double blinded randomization process. There will not be stratification in this pilot. This evaluation will collect two surveys one at baseline and others at the end of the project to evaluate the impacts of the program. The program is comprised of three parts: i) classroom-based driver education, ii) behind-the-wheel training, and iii) case management. The women are Syrian refugees resettled in the U.S. near San Diego at El Cajon. The program will be implemented through a local the Syrian Community Network that has experience working with refugees in the area.
