- The OLPC Academy seeks to:
- Support country partners by meeting their needs with highly qualified candidates
- Seek innovative solutions to furthering OLPC objectives
- Advocate OLPC's 5 core principles
College students and young adults possess a unique combination of energy, social awareness, and technical skills that allow them to accelerate the development of OLPC's educational mission worldwide. Your efforts will pay dividends for years to come, as the current recipients of XO's become actively engaged in addressing and solving their local community's problems.
We launched the OLPC Academy in 2010 to connect the world's top universities with the dozens of countries around the world who have embraced one laptop per child. We are looking for Masters and PhD students with specific expertise who want to work at the frontier of education and technology to help some of the world's most needy children. The OLPC Academy is part of the OLPC Association, a branch of OLPC based in Miami, Florida.
In only 2 years, One Laptop per Child's volunteer possibilities have grown from a few select opportunities in programming, public relations, learning, and law to an internationally competitive internship program in the OLPC Academy.
