Educate! is seeking an IT professional with experience setting up IT systems to spend a month with us building and implementing an organization wide IT strategy. Educate! has grown massively from zero staff in mid-2008 to 42 staff today, and is looking for a passionate IT professional to bring our IT systems up to speed, while at the same time learning about our work and experiencing life in Uganda.
Overview of Educate!
Educate! develops young entrepreneurs and leaders in Africa. We provide a proven mix of an entrepreneurship and leadership course, long-term mentoring, and an alumni program that helps high school students start enterprises and create meaningful employment for their communities.
Currently working with 3,400 diverse youth across Uganda, Educate! is incorporating its program into Uganda’s education system in partnership with the UN's International Labor Organization and Uganda's National Curriculum Development Center, and will reach over 45,000 students annually starting in 2012.
Educate! has been widely recognized for its model, receiving backing from Echoing Green, and winning the Ashoka Quality Education in Africa competition as well as the Grinnell College Young Innovator for Social Justice Prize.
1. Create IT Strategy: Analyze Educate!’s current and future IT needs and create a comprehensive strategy to achieve them.
2. Implement IT Network: Build a consistent, organization-wide network for Educate! in Uganda and set up a server.
