If you’re a skilled graphic designer who is passionate about helping underserved children gain access to education, keep reading! Oppia is looking for a graphic designer to assist our Lesson Creation team with creating fun, engaging graphics to accompany our Basic Mathematics lessons.
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.
It is an exciting time for Oppia - as we're currently on the brink of releasing our first comprehensive, basic mathematics curriculum, and we're also launching a whole section of the website highlighting this curated set of lessons! While we're most of the way there, we need illustrators and graphic designers to help us finish the last couple of lessons to round out the full curriculum. In the future, we'll be building out even more fun and exciting lessons in other subjects as well - like English, Science, Financial Literacy, and more!
We're looking for someone who is interested in helping to build fun and engaging stories for our learners of all ages using graphic design and illustration. The illustrations include both character design and more "functional" images that explain bits of mathematics to students.
