Position; Leraning designer
Educate! is a non-profit social enterprise that prepares youth in Africa with the skills to succeed in today’s economy. We’ve massively scaled up our program in the past several years, growing more than 4x since 2014. In 2018, we’re working in 175 secondary schools in Rwanda, 60 pilot schools in Kenya, and over 700 schools in Uganda reaching over 42,000 students intensively and 530,000 more broadly. And our Vision for 2024 is even bigger — to measurably impact one million youth annually across Africa.
Our model has proven to have a massive impact — after the program, students earned DOUBLE the income of a control group and had a 44% increase in business creation. Our graduates change their lives and their communities, such as Lillian Aero who employs over 100 AIDS-affected women.
Educate!’s team includes almost 200 staff and almost 300 volunteer youth mentors. We have been backed by top foundations such as MasterCard, Big Bang Philanthropy, Mulago, Echoing Green, Ashoka, and Global Innovation Fund. Educate! won the 2015 WISE Awards, and was featured by Bill Gates, an Al Jazeera documentary, Forbes 30 under 30, Clinton Global Initiative and The Brookings Institution as one of the 14 case studies in their global scaling education learning initiative.
Educate! currently achieves impact on youth life outcomes through direct delivery of our model in schools (what we call “School Solutions”) and through the integration of our model into national education systems (“Education System Solutions”).
In 2019, Educate!’s team began building a faster, more affordable, and more accessible alternative path to vocational school, which will empower out-of-school youth with the skills they need to get jobs, create their own businesses, and earn an income. With the introduction of this new solution, which builds on what we’ve learned in our ten years’ experience implementing a proven solution for youth directly in secondary schools, we are now aiming to tackle the systematic problem of youth unemployment from every angle, both through traditional education pathways and outside the system. Our new solution is seeking to answer a crucial question: What could act as an alternative path to vocational school for out-of-school youth, preparing them for the economic realities they will face?
To answer this question, in early 2019 Educate! assembled a new social enterprise unit within our organization, called Learning Point to explore and innovate the pathway to sustainably impact out of school youth (OoSY) livelihoods at scale.
Learning Point is looking for a Learning Designer who will be a creative thinker with strong analytical, conceptual thinking, superb training and instructional design and writing skills.
