For further background, interested candidates are welcome to request a handbook that outlines the structure of our organization, volunteer activities, and initiatives. To express interest, please contact justin [at] courseworld.org

CourseWorld.org, a fast-growing 501(c)(3) nonprofit that manages a video library of 50,000 free Liberal Arts lectures, is looking for talented board candidates who share a passion for liberal arts education and the possibilities of online technology and social enterprise.

Responsibilities vary based on individual backgrounds and areas of expertise. Generally speaking, as a small but fast-growing grassroots initiative, we are looking for assistance in professionalizing our organization, scaling outreach, redesigning our online platform, and helping to secure funding.

Our new initiative is fully volunteer-run, comprised of a global network of smart and passionate individuals from the private sector, academia, and NGOs. No one (CEO included) receives compensation of any kind. Together, let's make it possible for anyone in the world to access a quality liberal arts education for free.
