Impact Network Board - Treasurer

Mission

 

Impact Network is a New York-based NGO that delivers innovative e-learning programs in rural Africa. We believe that every child deserves access to a quality education. By empowering teachers with tablets, activity ­based lessons, support and weekly coaching, we make this possible for 6,000 students in rural Zambia. We developed a holistic education model called the eSchool 360, running currently in 40+ schools, to sustain high-quality education year after year for less than $5 a month per student.  This is an exciting time in our organization history because in 2017 we launched a 35-school expansion with a randomized controlled trial evaluation in partnership with American Institutes for Research.

 

Opportunity

 

Impact Network is seeking a Board Treasurer to serve a three-year term beginning Spring 2019 on the Board of Directors. We are seeking individuals who are enthusiastic for impacting the educational space in rural Zambia. Individuals who are willing and able to dedicate time and energy to upholding our mission are encouraged to apply.

Board Work

In addition, Board Members serve a critical role in assisting the leadership of the organization in making critical decisions regarding the organization’s future.
