Social Impact Project for Project Manager to Help Coordinate Science Lecture Series
Project Description and Impact
Phoenix Space is launching a new program - The Phoenix Space Lecture Series created to democratise access to scientific education and raise awareness about the Phoenix Space main mission: to educate, empower and inspire displaced and disadvantaged youth in the Middle East through science courses.
Each installment of the Phoenix Space Lecture Series is created and presented via webinar by one of Phoenix Space’s educators. We partner with leading scientists, academics, and technologists around the world to bring space science topics of interest to a variety of audiences. We also make sure that the lectures can be enjoyed by a range of attendees, from those with an ongoing interest in learning about space, to secondary school students with a general scientific background, and up through university students who are specifically focused on discrete areas of science.
By having famous scientists hold Q&A sessions (translated live into Arabic) with refugees and disadvantaged youth in the Middle East, we hope to inspire them further to pursue education and learning.
Phoenix Space is looking for an experteer with project management experience and interest in refugee education and science, to coordinate the Lecture Series project for 6 months. Video editing and creativity are a great addition to this role.
The purpose of this position:
Manage the Lecture Series project of Phoenix Space for 6 months (January to June) - 6 lecture webinars happen, are recorded and published online.
Coordinate all activities and tasks needed for timely and successful rollout of Lecture Series (approx. 1 lecture Q&A event a month).
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.
Gaining hands on experience with scaling a social enterprise
International team and environment
This project accepts virtual experteers.
