Do you LOVE teaching? Do you have a passion for helping people? Are you able to talk about a difficult topic in a fun and relatable way? Are you passionate about volunteering and making a difference in your community? We've got the position for you!
OUR VISION IS A WORLD WHERE FEWER WOMEN (AND MEN) DIE FROM BREAST CANCER.
Our Certified Global Educators are the WARRIORS in our mission. Without our educators, we can't continue our mission. We create educational tools and training to help our volunteer educators, known as "Lemonistas," reach people in ways never before possible with breast cancer-that overcome taboo, literacy and fear-and are completely inclusive of gender, age, ethnicity and background.
In order to expand our reach to as many as possible, we want to empower educators with training and tools to make an impact in their local communities and abroad through our new online course.
Our Know Your Lemons(r) certified online course gives Lemonistas the knowledge and skills they need in order to teach with the most impact. No health background is necessary. On average, the course takes about 2 hours to complete and is offered in English.
To become a Know Your Lemons(r) Global Educator, you must fill out an application for the waiting list. When we enroll our next cohort you will be invited to the online course. Then you are entitled to all the benefits of the program.
Upon passing the course, educators receive a digital teaching kit, complete with:
- powerpoint deck with visuals as only Know Your Lemons(r) can do (works in any language, any background, any age, any gender).
- two digital games to play: a memory matching game to teach the 12 signs of breast cancer, and a steps for detection game to teach the options available for screening and diagnosis
- a Know Your Lemons(r) app that can help those you teach stay on top of their breast health, book mammograms and teach them how to self-exam (and more)
- a Know Your Lemons(r) teaching certificate
- access to the Know Your Lemons Global Educator Network, with webinars to exchange best practice and submit update requests
- ability to see your contributions as part of a global effort to reduce deaths from breast cancer
You will also receive a welcome kit in the mail after your post-certification phone call.

About KNOW YOUR LEMONS FOUNDATION INC

OUR VISION Every minute somewhere in the world a woman dies from breast cancer. Our vision is that fewer women die from breast cancer. OUR MISSION We help women find breast cancer as early as possible. OUR GOAL WITH THE UNITED NATIONS As an Associated Member of the United Nations Department of Global Communications, we will be a change-agent for this goal with breast cancer. We are aligned with United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #3 to "Reduce Deaths from incommunicable diseases (like breast cancer) by one-third by 2030."
We make an impact by transforming how the world views breast cancer and breast health by "changing the picture of breast cancer for good." When our work helps a woman realize they have a symptom, or understands the importance of screening, and they get diagnosed early as a result, that’s our ultimate goal.
By overcoming taboo, fear and literacy issues, our Know Your Lemons(r) materials educate in a powerful way, educating nearly 1 BILLION people in over 20 languages. For the first time ever, women around the world can easily understand what they need to know when it comes to breast health, personal risk and getting diagnosed.
We'll work with your schedule.
This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
