AVANTI LEARNING CENTRES

Job Description: Curriculum Associate


About Avanti
Avanti is a social enterprise established by IIT alumni in 2010 to help bright students from lowincome homes gain admission to Indias top colleges. At present, we have 60 full-time employees and
250+ volunteers at 10 top college campuses (including 5 IITs). We currently operate 13 learning
centers across 10 locations in India and teach 600+ high school students science and math. Our centers
implement a unique peer collaboration pedagogy developed by the Dean of Applied Physics at
Harvard, Prof. Eric Mazur, who serves as Avantis chief academic advisor.
We teach students to learn from books, videos and their peers - resources that are abundant, accessible
and consistent in quality. Additionally, students are provided focused doubt solving by academic
experts. This blended learning pedagogy allows us to deliver quality education at a fraction of the cost
of traditional education models.
Avanti is a PanIIT Alumni India initiative, winner of the Stanford BASES Social E-Challenge 2010
and recipient of the Echoing Green, Ashoka and Draper Richards Kaplan Fellowships.
