New England Primate Conservancy seeks an experienced graphic designer to add visual pizzaz and intrigue to K-12 lessons and activities. Several activities are currently in development and place us in a position of requiring more hands on deck pretty immediately!
With the advent of the past year’s at-home and hybrid learning environments as a result of COVID-19, we've ramped up development of educational content that makes it easier for teachers to teach, for students to learn, and for parents to adapt to their unwitting and unfamiliar roles as academic coaches. Even as children and teachers head back to the classroom in the coming months, or if they're already back, innovative lessons and activities facilitate navigation through what could still be an environment in transition.
Our conservation- and animal protection-themed lessons incorporate a project-based formula in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world and personally meaningful activities that allow them to work independently. Standards-based, lessons encourage critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, self-management, project management, and collaboration. All can be applied across multiple academic disciplines, whether to enhance instruction in life sciences, geography, media and technology, vocabulary, mathematics, social studies, writing, or just about any other academic subjects. Very importantly-and here’s where we need you!-the lessons are engaging, with games, graphics, videos, and more.
New England Primate Conservancy is a wildlife conservation and animal protection organization that is committed to leaving a legacy of hope and tools to build a better tomorrow for all the Earth's citizens. Education is the heart of animal protection. 70% of our primate cousins are threatened by extinction. All are threatened by human activities. If they are at risk, so too is every other species that shares their environment. Saving one species saves many.
This is a remote volunteer position that can be accomplished from your home, with e-mail, phone, or Zoom correspondence with the Education Program Director and/or the Education Team.
If you are creative with well-honed graphic design experience and a passion for conservation and wildlife protection, this opportunity may be for you.
Minimum age 28.
10-20 hours per month. We'll work with your schedule. More time may be required during the activity creation process. Less other times.
Please send your letter of interest and resume or CV to: ATTN: Debra Curtin firstname.lastname@example.org
New England Primate Conservancy is committed to leaving a legacy of hope and tools to create a better tomorrow for all of the Earth's citizens.
Did you know that two thirds of all primate species and subspecies are endangered? All nonhuman primates are threatened by habitat loss caused by human activities. But there is hope. Since the problems are caused by human activity, they are preventable, repairable, and reversible. We can each take small steps in our daily lives, in our daily choices, to create change for the better.
In addition to raising awareness about our environmental impact, humane education strives to develop empathy and tolerance toward all creatures, which facilitates the leap to empathy and tolerance for differences in people. Over 30 years of studies confirm the direct correlation between abuse and neglect of animals and violence against people. By the same token, compassion for our fellow animals can be an indicator of our compassion for each other. When we protect and advocate for our fellow animals, we are part of a much larger solution. Join us. Contribute to the solution.
