The Changemaker Project Lead Opportunity

Are you passionate about education for social change? Join The Changemaker Project and help us empower the next generation of leaders and changemakers who are building a better world.


About Us:

The Changemaker Project is a design challenge for teens who want to change the world. We educate students about the multitude of social justice issues affecting people, animals, and the environment via an online course, accessible from anywhere in the world. We teach students to think creatively and critically, work as a team, and use Stanford’s Design Thinking process in order to generate an innovative solution to an issue they are passionate about. The course culminates in a global pitch event, where teams pitch their world-changing projects for a chance to have them funded.

Over the past three years, we’ve reached over 1000 students in 25 countries and helped youth aged 13-24 #bethechange they wish to see. We hope to reach even more students this year, and we need your help!


The Position:

We are bringing on two volunteer project leads to help us grow-- through marketing, school outreach, and fundraising. These project leads will work together as a team and support one another throughout the year, and should be comfortable working both in a team and independently (remotely).

  • Data analysis and research (using our survey data)

Time Commitment:

This volunteer position will run the length of the 2020-2021 school year (dates flexible). The position will require roughly 8-10 hours/week, primarily remote work (esp. due to COVID.)


Compensation:

This is an unpaid volunteer opportunity. Compensation will come in the form of a valuable learning experience, professional development support, opportunity to be creative and design something powerful that will change the world for the better, and a good letter of recommendation for a job well done.
