At Unlocking Futures*, our goal is to aid in breaking generational cycles of poverty and ensure the educational success of all students. Due to the impact of COVID-19 on students, it is especially important this year to provide additional resources and mentorship to students in under-resourced school systems.

Since March 2020, we have transitioned our programs to be entirely online. Because of this, we also need to make our evidence-based curriculum more user-friendly and engaging.

We are looking for a volunteer skilled in Cartoon Animation. As a volunteer, you will assist us in creating cartoon animations for pieces of our curriculum.

This is a three-month project opportunity, with flexible scheduling. For inquiries, please email us at info@nyunlockingfutures.org.
