Non-Profit Volunteer Opportunity

I have recently begun volunteering with a non-profit organization called KIPR, currently providing robotics education to low-income students. They are looking to expand their curriculum to allow for remote learning of all STEM topics for students in K-12. It is quite the undertaking! I have been mapping out the curriculum plan for the state of NJ, and I am wondering if there are any other fellow Jumbos in the Department of Education that I could enlist for a very low time commitment to this curriculum mapping effort (~2 hours per week for a month or two).
