If you’re interested in public relations and communications, with a passion for eradicating education inequality, keep reading! Oppia is looking for a new member of our Growth team who is excited to help us reach out to key PR partners in key regions (India, Ghana, and more) in order to empower and uplift under-resourced communities with quality education.
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. And, unfortunately, even those students who are in school may not receive the effective education they need.
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 randomized controlled trial and the development of our large-scale open-source volunteering community. Now, we are building a Growth team to focus on scaling our impact and outreach around the world.
We are looking for a PR team member who can help us conduct outreach and communication to key distribution and media partners, which will allow us to exponentially expand our impact around the world. If you are interested, there are also opportunities to help lead and contribute to our broader communications strategy. We welcome those who are willing to learn and grow through this opportunity, although some previous relevant experience would be helpful.
