020 Part-Time Online Mathematics Content Creator - High School Level
About our Program:
The Upward Bound (UB) program is a federally funded grant program that provides fundamental support to underrepresented high school students to increase the rate at which participants succeed in secondary and post-secondary education and pursue rewarding tech-enabled careers. Upward Bound serves high school students from low-income families and families in which neither parent holds a bachelor's degree.
The Upward Bound programs at AIM Institute serve students from Abraham Lincoln, Omaha Bryan, Papillion-LaVista, Papillion LaVista-South, and Thomas Jefferson high schools. Due to the uncertainty around COVID-19, The AIM Institute is seeking a variety of part-time online/digital content creators to develop online lessons for a virtual summer program that will help ensure our students are ready to face the next school year.
