Branding & Graphic Design Volunteer




San Jose
United States


Do you have an "eye for design" with an ability to execute using industry-standard software? Do you want to be able to collaborate with young changemakers across Africa to create unique brands and collateral for projects they've designed? We have an opportunity for you!

AYANA International ( is a youth-led, California-based nonprofit dedicated to empowering youth in the developing world to harness their potential as changemakers by identifying and solving problems in their communities. We're empowering the next generation of social innovators in developing countries through innovative programs designed to stimulate empathy and problem-solving skills.

The AYANA Youth Innovation Incubator Program is a 5-hour-long research, innovation, idea development, and presentation curriculum that allows youth to identify problems in their communities and come up with solutions. We have reached 300 young people through our Youth Innovation Lab programs in 6 cities in Africa -- the projects designed by youth which we have funded have reached thousands of individuals.

We are looking for someone who has taken graphic design courses or has previous experience in design (with a portfolio to demonstrate this) to help us design various projects we are working on in Kenya, Cameroon, and Tanzania. You will need to be able to create logos for youth led projects, translating their visions into life. See examples of past projects below:

If you want to be a part of a youth-led organization changing how we think about development and creating a sustainable and equitable future for all, join us. If you have skills in an area outside of design (i.e. fundraising, website design feedback on our current site at, strategy, etc.) or would like to run an AYANA program in your city, whether in the US or internationally, please be in touch.
