Learn, connect, and serve through a virtual “Day of Service” for Social Impact and Employee Engagement Leaders

Design for Impact is a special 6-hour virtual “day of service” program created just for you.

Together, we will make an impact with EduCare, a nonprofit that provides technology training for women and girls in Liberia.  We will also share new in-person volunteer programs that can be done onsite. You will see how participating in one of our most popular programs builds inclusion, connection and culture with employees who have returned to the office or are working remotely.

Join us to help EduCare in Liberia increase the use of digital solutions in schools and improve students’ educational outcomes.

Through Team4Tech’s Design for Impact program, you’ll use a human centered design approach to help EduCare develop innovative solutions to support teacher adoption of digital technology in schools. EduCare plans to pilot the most promising solutions from the design challenge in the future.

EduCare in Liberia provides training and classes to improve the lives of women and girls in Liberia.  They apply digital solutions and digital literacy to curb poverty and improve educational and economic outcomes. EduCare’s programs are led by local women of the community who work together to identify issues and create and enact their own solutions to transform their communities.

The Liberian education system is emerging from long-standing impacts from the war, compounded by the 2015 school closure due to the Ebola Viral Disease (EVD) outbreak. More recent school closures due to the Covid-19 pandemic continue to take a toll on the fragile education system. Only 54% of children complete primary education.

Hands together in a huddle

We hope by participating in the Design for Impact program, you will feel a reinvigorated sense of purpose as you make an impact and experience a new way to help your company engage employees. At the same time you’ll learn new frameworks for problem solving and grow your personal network.
