Onboard begins upon receipt of your TEC Partner Package. Outreach for pending needs, including those from Foundation partner or stakeholders will happen upon receipt of the request.

For our internal needs, TEC Partner(s) shall be including on the planning team for that product from cradle to grave. We have a pipeline of workforce training products lined up for production and are currently working to secure funds for go live of those projects. And for those who design and instruct for Employees with Disabilities (EWD), we really could use your help!

So thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Needs are great and we can't wait to get started.

We're Always Hiring Volunteers

The Learners Lab Foundation can always use a helping hand. We're hiring a Director, Marketing and Foundation Communications to lead a new department, and a Social Media/Communications Manager to lead the Foundations Social Media Communication effort.

Both roles begin as a part time, unpaid-volunteer positions with flexible hours. They are desired to become paid stipend that transition to full time positions once completely funded, so their activation is key to that happening. There is "NO" obligation to do full time, incumbants will have first rights of refusal for the FTE opportunity.

Position descriptions with application instructions are available for download from Director, Marketing and Foundation Communications (MFC) and Social Media & Communications Manager (SMComm-Vol-Interim) respectively. Interviews will commence immediately. So if you're interested in joining an innovative, pacesetting charity, with the autonomy to be creative, then we can't wait to have you on the team.
