Education Outreach Coordinator
The Chinese Culture Center is a non-profit organization whose mission is to elevate underserved communities and give voice to equality through education and contemporary art.
CCC seeks a volunteer to assist with outreach for our diversity and democracy education program. The purpose of this program is to convey the Chinese American experience to educate thousands of students every year about the development of America's multi-cultural democracy, and to build appreciation for continuing struggles for equality and opportunity.
"Outreach" includes both standard promotional strategies as well as broader educational support that creates greater partnership with educators.
The volunteer will assist in conducting outreach to hundreds of schools throughout the greater Bay Area, utilizing fliers, letters, email, and social media. The Outreach Coordinator will also assist in contacting "influencers" such as PTA officers, school board members, school principals, and local education activists.
With guidance from the Director of Education & Engagement, the Outreach Coordinator will also have opportunities to create study guides, games, and other activities that will maximize active student and educator participation in our program.
Students range from 4th grade through college, so there will be ample challenge in creating activities of varying levels of complexity and depth. The Coordinator will also have opportunity to assist the program Research Fellow in creating cutting-edge interpretations of the social, political, and cultural experience of Chinese Americans.
Schedule: minimum 6 to 12 hours per week.
