Community Tech Network Graphic Design Artist Remote · Part time

CTN is looking for a Graphic Designer!

Description

About Us

Community Tech Network is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with offices in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Austin, TX. Our mission is to unite organizations and volunteers to transform lives through digital literacy.


We believe that access to the Internet is a human right, and that those without the skills to use a computer are at risk of social and economic disadvantage. Public services and essential information are increasingly moving online, and many people are unable to access those resources. Many fine organizations are working to spread Internet connectivity to the underserved, but access to technology is  only  a  partial  solution. Connectivity  needs to be  coupled with  digital  skills training   that  is relevant and delivered in a way that won’t intimidate the adult learner.

About You

You are energetic and enthusiastic about documenting and promoting digital inclusion activities. Your work style is a healthy blend of initiative and collaboration, self-direction and teamwork. You are a personable, hard-working team player who is open to learning new things, works well on their own initiative, and enjoys working in a fast-paced work environment. You are also passionate about digital literacy, public access to technology, and engaging marginalized and/or underserved populations as part of a diverse nonprofit team.
