If you’re a skilled writer who is passionate about eradicating education inequality, keep reading! Oppia is looking for members to join our Marketing & Outreach team who can tell compelling stories and inform the larger community about the work we’re doing.
Who We Are
The Oppia Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with the mission to provide high quality education to all. We do this through the creation and maintenance of our platform, Oppia , the coordination of our passionate contributors, and the development of critical partnerships with NGOs in the communities we aim to serve.
Where You Fit In
Millions of children are not receiving the education they deserve. Of the 61 million children worldwide who cannot attend primary school, 17 million will never step foot into a school if trends continue. With the presence of COVID-19 today, millions more children are also seeing interruptions in their daily lives, stability, and education - making it even more difficult than before for many students to get the education they need to succeed.
Thus far, we’ve worked hard to prove the validity of Oppia and the effectiveness of the lessons we create, through the completion of our first RCT and the development of our large-scale open-source volunteering community. Now, we need your help to put our story out there and increase our impact.
We are looking for skilled writers and social media gurus to produce and edit content for our blog, newsletter, website, and social media platforms. You should be someone who is familiar with blogging/article writing, various social media platforms and strategy, passionate about the problems that Oppia is solving, and excited about community engagement. While we prefer someone who has some experience in these areas, we're happy to work with someone who'd like to learn and develop through this role as well.
