Join The Exploratory as a Ghana National Service Fellow. Deadline July 10.

As our programs expand across several regions and districts, we are in search of two program coordinators, one for Berekuso and one for Nsawam, in the Eastern region, to provide support to and monitor the programming for each area, and to serve as a representative of the organization to heads of schools, the district and other supporters.

By September 2016, the weekly Exploratory Clubs will enroll almost 400 girls (and some boys) in 15 schools in Pokuase, Nsawam, Berekuso and Accra. The Empowering Teacher Through STEM program will have trained over 70 teachers in basic school on science practicals and gender-responsive pedagogy. The Educational Resource Hubs will enable these teachers and students to experience practical science through ~50 STEM kits consisting primarily of locally sourced and/or low-cost materials.

In addition to duties related to the clubs, service personnel may develop their own project, as interest and experience allow. For example, he/she may
