  • Web Wizard Needed to Create Innovative Interface

    We are looking for talented web wizards to create and maintain the App for our nonprofit, "Sponsor Humanity, Inc." The concept for Sponsor Humanity was inspired by the impact of COVID-19. Our vision is to create an innovative interface that will directly connect people to request and offer resources in order to meet the basic needs of food and utility bills in this time when so many have lost their income due to the covid19 crisis (and in general as the distribution of wealth in the U.S. leaves so many people feeling marginalized and without access to the resources they need). It differs from mutual aid and "Next Door" networks in two ways: 1) This platform will be cutting-edge, current, and fresh, while also fun and easy to use. This interface will directly connect people; they can create a profile as a sponsor or recipient, and choose who they connect with. 2) There will be an option for "energy exchange" in which people can offer a service, craft, etc. in exchange for their support. This reflects and nurtures a paradigm shift in which people can offer something other than money to meet their basic needs in times of financial instability. In addition to the platform described above, there is a broader vision for Sponsor Humanity, Inc. to support other similar endeavors to innovatively connect human beings for the purpose of co-creating a better world; a world whose values reflect compassion, kindness, and generosity, as well as sharing our gifts, be they financial or otherwise. If this project feels inspiring to you, please reach out. We are very excited to find the right, talented people who can help bring this vision to fruition!

  • Homelessness prevention simulation, volunteer from home, CrowdDoing

    Homelessness prevention simulation, volunteer from home, CrowdDoing CrowdDoing is recruiting volunteers to help us simulate homelessness prevention. Homelessness Prevention Simulation: Thesis: Home buyers today buy 100% of a home, and borrow money through a mortgage to be able to afford to do so. But this purchase masks the fact that they are buying two things at the same time- 100% of the future sale price of a home (so-called appreciation value), and 100% of the usage rights of that home while they are living there (so-called use value). If people could buy only the percentage of appreciation value that they can afford, and still secure stable access to a home, half of homelessness in dense, coastal urban regions such as the Bay Area, New York, Seattle could be prevented. Stanford University has piloted such a model for decades by allowing professors to buy 100% of the use value of their off-campus home and 50% of the appreciation value of their home. This program has allowed individual professors to have asset diversification, access to housing, and an affordable share of the growth in the appreciating market value of their home. Through this program, Stanford University has created access to housing for professors without grant dollars or housing tax credits in a difficult housing market. Stanford’s endowment has earned returns on this investment comparable to the rest of Stanford endowment investments. The extension of this kind of alternative financing-- investing in a portion of appreciation value per home-- could make possible zero-subsidy affordable housing for preventing homelessness and reducing super-commuting. In the Bay Area, jobs and housing creation are unbalanced. For the housing demand to be met, an added minimum of 275,000 homes are needed, available at price levels that neither impoverish nor displace working families. Until those homes are built, what solution might bring families with moderate incomes access to existing housing stock? The solution is to provide one part of our housing need solution by using a financial investment model based on the future appreciation of homes.

We have built a functioning prototype and planted thousands of trees to test our system. Now we need your help as we take this to the next level and share it with tree planting organizations around the world. We are expecting millions and millions of trees in the near future. If you are looking for a place where your skills can have an impact on poverty and climate change... stop by this open-source community and help out with an issue, or a bug or two. The project is creating a transparent link to trees/planters while collecting valuable data on tree planting efforts. Once implemented this data-driven system will help us find ways to make living trees more profitable while creating jobs by linking funds to plant trees where our globe needs them the most. Success will be achieved when, for those who survive by clearing the forests, planting and protecting trees will be more profitable than cutting them down.

  • Zero Subsidy Affordable Housing Volunteer From Home Investment Financial Analyst, CrowdDoing

    Zero Subsidy Affordable Housing Volunteer From Home Investment Financial Analyst, CrowdDoing Zero Subsidy Affordable Housing Volunteer Investment Financial Analyst, CrowdDoing Bobby Fishkin (via Reframe It), Marc Rand, and Mark Moulton have been developing a complementary way to approach making Bay Area housing accessible. CrowdDoing, a joint initiative between Reframe It and Match4Action Foundation is supporting zero-subsidy affordable housing. Zero subsidy affordable housing is possible, and variations of it work now in the real world. Anti-poverty impact investable housing through equity rather than debt is achieved by separating appreciation value from utilization value of assets. Property rights can be fractured in service and support of stakeholder interest. As one example, for more than fifty years, Stanford University has made such an arrangement for their off-campus housing for professors. Our notion is that such an arrangement could be offered by an administered investment pool to buyers of a fraction of a home’s appreciation value, combined with the right to live in the home. We suggest that there are investors who could find viable this kind of impact investment in real estate, based on appreciation value but not use value for life of tenant/owners. This might be an innovation in housing affordability that could provide a substantial fraction of the population who cannot currently be housed in existing markets within region a housing opportunity. Stanford buys half of the appreciation value of each home but not the use value on behalf of the university through a mortgage participation agreement structure. Our goal is a zero subsidy means of scaling affordable housing inspired by how Stanford has supported off campus professor housing over the last 50 years. Housing inclusion, Transportation inclusion, FAQ:How is this different from down payment assistance? One is that it's not just the down payment, it could be as much as 2/3rds of the value of the house, not 5% of the value of the house, or 10%. You can see some of the distinctions here- https://www.huduser.gov/portal/periodicals/em/fall12/highlight3.html . Why is this approach needed when there are other kinds of affordable housing? Because there is not enough for families making middle-incomes. FAQ: Why is this approach more efficient then other mechanisms for affordable housing? Because by bringing equity sharing agreement to scale market rate capital can subsize affordability anywhere in which land constraints are significant barriers such as islands, bays and due to mountains. Pooled equity is 100 times more leveraged because market rate capital becomes self-subsidizing of affordable home fractional ownership. FAQ: How do impact investors get out liquid from such an investment structure? Our goal is to create a long hold, holding company. Protects from the environment, insulated as liquidity is self-liquifying as holding company. Property rights in our culture of practice and law integrate many different rights together. These include: the initial value for which an asset was purchased , the appreciation value of the asset over time, and the year-round use-value of the asset. This unity of property rights places vulnerable people between 40% of average annual income and 150% of average annual income in this region at risk of being unstably housed. This instability is due to having a too large portion of their annual income paid to housing expenses. Housing costs 2 to 3 times too much for these people to afford. Within that range of incomes, zero subsidy affordable housing strategies can be of exceptional impact potential. Now, when a family buys a home or apartment, they must almost always buy the whole home. Usually those who do not own homes, rent them. Those who are first time home buyers get a mortgage for the full value of the home. This model w\ould use mortgage participation agreements with qualified families that would allow the fund to buy a fraction of the value of the home (at time of future sale) while allowing the family who buys the rest of the value of the home the right to live there by financing their fraction or arranging to live rent free. A publicly traded fund could buy fractions of the future sale prices of homes. The investors could sell to the fund simply by liquidating their shares. An open issuance of shares could allow more impact investors to invest and through these purchases of shares in the fund, more homes could be purchased. If half the appreciation value of each home was not owned by families, because less money would need to be borrowed, then families could have more secure housing. A publicly traded fund that is designed to leverage mortgage participation agreements to make home ownership more accessible to first-time buyers could attract impact investment. In San Francisco, the median home price is $824,600. The median 20 percent down payment is $164,920. http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/01/16/a-silicon-valley-down-payment-could-buy-you-an-entire-house-in-much-of-the-u-s/ . At a 4% interest rate over 30 years that means a monthly payment of $3,934. But suppose that a first time home owner is only buying half of the value of a home - 40% of the appreciated value, and 100% of the right to live there? Suppose that first-time buyer is not paying rent to the passive impact investors who have bought a percentage of the future purchase price of the home. Then their monthly payments would be $1,967. Such a Fund would have an open issuance to secure additional investors. If investors could be attracted based on the overall rise in book value of the real estate being owned compared to other regions in the world, the affordable housing fund could be both economically attractive and impactful.

  • Finance Project Manager Homelessness Prevention/Zero Subsidy Affordable Housing

    Finance Project Manager Homelessness Prevention/Zero Subsidy Affordable Housing " Zero subsidy affordable housing is possible. Variations of programs to make housing accessible work now in the real world. Anti-poverty impact-investable housing through equity rather than debt is achieved by separating appreciation value from utilization value of residential assets. Property rights can be fractured in service and support of stakeholder interest. For more than fifty years, Stanford University has made shared-equity arrangement to provide off-campus housing for faculty and staff. Stanford buys half of the appreciation value of each home, but not the use value on behalf of the university through a mortgage participation agreement structure. Such an opportunity could be offered more widely by an administered investment pool. Buyers would purchase of a fraction of a home’s appreciation value, combined with the right to live in the home. Our goal is a zero-subsidy means for scalable provision of affordable housing inspired by the way Stanford has supported off-campus faculty/staff housing. We suggest that there are investors who could find this kind of impact investment in real estate viable based on appreciation value, but not use value, during the lives/residence of tenant/owners. Wide use of this innovation in housing affordability could provide access to homes for a substantial fraction of the population who cannot currently be housed in existing markets within regions with growing economies set in geographically limited spaces. By bringing equity sharing agreement to scale, market rate capital can subsidize affordability anywhere in which land constraints are significant barriers, such as islands, bays and due to topography such as mountains. Under such conditions, where home appreciation proves steady historically, pooled equity is 100 times more leveraged - as market rate capital becomes self-subsidizing when invested in affordable home fractional ownership.https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ir2zHUPWWcGG1Yc6omBxkAbhqc1CXGPu/view?usp=sharing https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AH8I9hf9olSJzPH1Y7GHycOio95KfXye6zzd3eD8bCA/edit?usp=sharing , Radical Collaboration: Results of Hackathon 1 http://blog.reframeit.com/service-learning-and-skilled-volunteering/ About CrowdDoing.world: CrowdDoing is leveraging micro-leadership, service learning & virtual multi-disciplinary collaboration to achieve systemic change .

    HomeAgain VR is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven community that offers human connection through shared virtual experiences. Our platform allows participants and volunteers to chat with one another while exploring the world, visiting museums, seeing wildlife, and more. We are a channel for uplifting and positive social interactions, which we believe can improve the health, wisdom, and happiness of people everywhere. Accessibility and inclusiveness are at the core of our mission, and we strive to make our program easy to use for people of all ages, income levels, and physical abilities. Many of our current customers are residents of assisted living communities. We are seeking a volunteer who will serve as a session facilitator, a necessary role for making our volunteers and users feel supported and valued. Since our virtual sessions are one-on-one, scheduled appointments, it is essential that we respect the time of everyone involved. The facilitator's role is to ensure that the sessions happen on time as scheduled and to provide logistical support to our users. This will include: Following up with volunteers and users who don't show up for their sessions Finding a backup volunteer if the scheduled volunteer cancels at the last minute Answering questions about scheduling Offering basic help if someone is having trouble connecting to our platform We are an early-stage startup, so your work as a session facilitator will likely shape our processes moving forward. We are always looking for new ideas and suggestions for streamlining our program to reach more people while requiring less manual work. If you are interested in playing this key role in pioneering our program, please let us know!

  • Graphic design help needed

    Since the beginning of the Covid-19 quarantine, Cleveland Opera Theater has been making an effort to respond to the needs of our community by providing virtual and downloadable content for all ages. While we have content, we do not have a graphic designer on staff, nor do we have the budget to hire someone (we're REALLY small, and Covid has taken quite a toll on our resources). We would love a volunteer (or a couple) who are willing to help create the designs for our upcoming Opera Explorers program downloads as well as a booklet for our programs bookable by libraries and community organizations. We will also be running a program during the month of October aimed at teaching high schoolers the parallels between opera and hip-hop, and we will be in need of a recruitment flier to send out the week of Labor Day. Notes: > For Opera Explorers, you would not need to reinvent the wheel - simply mimic the design of the first release in subsequent releases, changing the content for each. The next one is set to go out on September 22nd. All the content is ready, but it needs to be designed! The first release is viewable at ClevelandOperaTheater.org/explorer, so you can get an idea of the project. > For the Programming Guide, the design can be as simple or complicated as you want - this would be an excellent project for someone looking to round out their portfolio. The goal is to develop something similar to this: https://arts-inspiredlearning.org/resource-guide/ (but we have far fewer programs, so it would be a far smaller project). > The recruitment flier is super simple - we're just hoping for something visually engaging to a high school audience. It would be REALLY awesome if this was made "template-able," so we could reuse it on our own in the future. The biggest issue for us is that no one has consistent access to any form of "real" software, so most design is done by a non-graphic designer in PowerPoint, Canva, or a similar program. This is, again, a great project if you need to add to your portfolio. In a dream world, we'd love to find someone willing to volunteer on a regular basis to help out with fliers and small needs - or large needs if you so desire. Our website is currently being redesigned and updated (when you visit, you'll probably see a big difference between the home page and all other pages), and we have been working on improving our social media branding over the past few months. If any or all of these projects are of interest, please contact Megan at mthompson@clevelandoperatheater.org to express your interest. Please specify which project(s) as well as whether you're interested in a short-term or long-term opportunity.

  • Reston, Va and vicinity: Help Launch a Groundbreaking Reading App

    Reston, Va and vicinityReston, VA 20190
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Is your child one of the 55 million students who has been displaced from school due to COVID-19? Is your child an emerging reader in 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade who is on the path to reading, but isn’t quite there yet? Now you can do something incredible to help your child, to help your family, and to help potentially millions of children and millions of families across the country, by teaching your child how to read in 12 hours using the FUNetix Literacy App, and by providing us with critical "user feedback" as part of our Advanced Product Trials. Imagine that your child could be reading within 12 hours of starting the FUNetix app. They can finish the school year on a strong, positive note, and they can continue reading throughout the summer, getting ready for their next grade level! The American Youth Literacy Foundation is a nationwide 501 (c) (3), charitable non-profit, founded in 2008 and dedicated to bringing literacy to ALL children by the time they finish 3rd grade. For the past 12 years, we have worked with thousands of children of all abilities across the country, teaching them how to read. We’ve been able to identify and resolve the root cause of the reading problem. And we’ve unlocked the "secret code" that enables kids to learn how to read incredibly quickly, and with a deep understanding of fundamental reading principles. After tens of thousands of hours working with children from all socio-economic backgrounds (and all reading abilities) across the country, we have developed and patented a reading curriculum called FUNetix. For 12 years we have been using this patented curriculum to teach children how to read. And for the past 4 years we have been translating our instructional games and activities into an app. We began building our app long before the Coronavirus ever hit, and we will be teaching children long after the Coronavirus leaves; but for right now, we are doing our final preparations to bring the app to the App Store and Google Play by Thanksgiving, 2020. By participating in our advanced product trials, you will be able to access the app before anyone else. We are inviting up to 1,000 people to download and play the entire app and provide critical feedback to us so that we can make our final decisions on how to optimize the user experience (UX) ahead of our launch. By using the FUNetix app, your child will learn ALL 44 sounds of the English language . They will learn how to blend sounds and sound symbols together to form words, using a "Secret Code" called 21E(r). They will learn all of this in about 4 hours. Then they will begin reading English words using our patented system of diacritics, which are special, child friendly sound symbols that show your child how to pronounce ANY English word. It takes about another 4 hours to begin mastering this special pronunciation guide. Then your child will spend another 4 hours of the app practicing, by playing games and reading stories, and receiving additional instruction, in order to build their skills and their confidence. After about 12 hours of total instruction time, your child will gain access to an entire library of wonderful content, including books, games, puzzles, poems, stories and treasure hunts. As they work their way through the many varied reading options, they will always have a simple button to push when they want to see, for example, how a new word is pronounced. They simply push the FUNetix button within the game or story and the diacritics magically appear. We call this button, the "Magic Decoder." But you can only use the "Magic Decoder" if you know the "Secret Code." Children who know the Secret Code can push the Magic Decoder button whenever they want to unlock the pronunciation of ANY English word. That’s FUNetix! Your child will come out of the app reading at about a 2nd grade level, and they will be ready to accelerate at lightning speed into all things written, including books, stories, and grade level course material. If your child is already in 3rd grade or higher, they will now have the fundamental reading skills they need to quickly catch up to their grade level course material. The app works because it teaches "phonological (sound) awareness" FIRST, allowing the developing brain to create a "neural map" of the 44 unique sounds of English via the use of child-friendly, pictograms, or, "sound symbols." The app works because it first shows children that each sound can be represented as a symbol; and then it shows children that these sound symbols can be blended together to form the very same words that we use in our everyday conversations. Children begin to recognize that sound symbols are the pictorial representations of our spoken language, and the fundamental building blocks of written code. The app works because it introduces English much later in the reading process (4 hours later). English spelling patterns like "ee" and "ea," etc. are equated to one of the 44 building blocks of sound that the student is now already familiar with. When the app introduces English, it does so by showing children ALL of the pieces of a given word and how the sound of each piece ("phonics") is easily revealed by the Magic Decoder (the diacritic symbols they already know, strategically positioned above the word.) The app works because it teaches ALL of the fundamentals of reading in the RIGHT order. And the app works because it provides children with a "touch of the button" pronunciation guide, and teaches them how to interpret that pronunciation guide. It’s like a set of training wheels. Children learn using the diacritics, but once they have seen a word a few times, they no longer need them. By the end of the app, children are essentially weaned off of the diacritics except where new, "novel" words are introduced, words that they have never seen before. For new words, students always have the FUNetix button available so they never have to ask a parent or teacher or older sibling how to decode it. They can do it themselves! And if it’s a word they already know the meaning of, they immediately make the association and UNDERSTAND the context in which it is being used. So if you have 12 hours that you would like to donate to this cause, we are looking for up to 1,000 early users. We hope that you and your child have an incredible experience learning how to read with the patented "FUNetix 12 Hour Literacy App!" And we hope that your child becomes a lifelong reader like so many other children who have learned how to read using the FUNetix curriculum. And we hope that your candid feedback will help us make this app as fun and interesting and enjoyable as possible for millions of children who will use it after Thanksgiving, 2020. And of course this is all FREE. We are a 501 (c) (3) charitable non-profit, and we are giving this app away to the world, for FREE! That’s our purpose and our mission! To sign up, simply go to www.FUNetix.org . Thank you for considering this opportunity and we wish you the very best, especially in these challenging times! -From ALL of us on the FUNetix Literacy App team, thank you! Mr. R. Kali Woodward Founding Executive Director

  • Fairfax, VA: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis as a Community Outreach Liaison

    Fairfax and vicinityFairfax, VA 22030
    Mon, June 8, 2020 - Tue, September 1, 2020

    Community Outreach/ Distribution Liaison: Have you ever wanted to do something AMAZING to change the world but didn't know where to start? Here is an opportunity to help underprivileged children, to help under-served children, to help the more than 55 million children displaced from school due to COVID-19, and even to help many adults who can't read. Here is an opportunity to help close the social inequality gap, by closing the opportunity gap, by closing the education gap, by closing the literacy gap, and by creating a new era of near-100% literacy for the next generation of emerging American school children. We are looking for six, very special people, who have the skills, expertise, experience, passion, and time to be part of something amazing that is about to fundamentally change the lives of millions of children. Right now, millions of children have no hope; but soon, they will have the opportunity to learn how to read, which, in turn, will open a window to education and to a world of potential for them that, not only, has never been opened before, but that has never even been seriously contemplated as a potential reality. What we are talking about is adaptive learning, gamified smartphone app, called FUNetix, that can literally, teach a child how to read, in their own home, in an average of just 12 hours of total use time! We are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for nearly 12 years! We have been developing this app for about two years, and this year we will launch this incredible smartphone app in the App Store and on Google Play by Thanksgiving, 2020, to help save millions of children from a lifetime of illiteracy! Already, there are millions of children who are struggling to learn how to read. Already, there are millions more who have given up on reading and are destined to go through life either completely illiterate, or with semi-literate skills at best. And now with the displacement of tens of millions of children from school, for an indeterminate amount of time , the loss of reading capacity of the next generation presents a new, watershed moment in American education; this can either be a crisis, and a very real threat to the future success of millions of young students, or it can become an opportunity to change the American education landscape forever , by bringing literacy to millions of children who would otherwise have continued down the same path of scarcity and deprivation as so many generations before them. So many people are asking for "Real Solutions" now, not just talk, or continued, seemingly never-ending "conversations" about social reform. At the American Youth Literacy Foundation, we believe that literacy itself, second only to family and faith, is the single most "upstream" component parts of that "Real Solution;" and that literacy is the underpinning of all education; and that education is the key to every individual's opportunity for self-actualization, and the only truly scaleable, truly proven "ticket" out of the oppressive burden of poverty. We are partnered with an engineering team that was one of the five, $1 million finalists, in the XPrize for Global Learning competition (the winners of which were announced last May), which was a worldwide competition for app "design and development" teams to design, build and deliver a tablet-based app to children in remote villages in Africa which could teach them how to read and do basic math (children of all ages, most of whom had never been to school before in their lives). The Xprize competition was incredibly successful at bringing awareness and attention to the use of technology as a potential equalizer in the world of education. The curriculum that our app is based on is a patented reading decoding system , and is so effective at teaching children how to read, that it usually only takes 4-6 hours for them to understand the basic learning tools, and another 4-6 hours for them to reach a 2nd grade reading level. Compare this to so many of our students who have been in the public school system for 6 years and still can't spell simple words like "the, said, was, would, could, there or through." Compare this to millions of students who have dropped out of school, primarily because they can't read ( more than 10 million per decade (24% according to U.S. Government statistics)). More than 20 million children in grades 3-12 in America's public schools today are either completely or functionally illiterate, according to the U.S. Government’s "Annual Report Card." Our organization is a 12-year-old, nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profits founded in 2008. We started out as a regional tutoring program, then became a nationwide tutoring program; but all the while, our focus has always been on finding a scalable solution to the literacy crisis in America. With the rise of the smartphone and the amazing penetration of this powerful tool (more than 80% in even the most impoverished communities), we feel that the answer we have been searching for IS in the form of an app. So for the past several years, we have been working to convert our amazing reading curriculum that teaches children how to read in 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in 12 hours. And this is where you come in. We have more than 50 people working to build, test, and deliver this app to millions of children in America's inner cities and rural communities, to the barrios and the suburbs and the American Indian reservations and everywhere in-between. But in order to do this, we need to reach the people who need it the most. And in order to reach those people and those communities, we need to hear from you, and people like you who live in those communities. We need to better understand the current state of the schools and the education system at the local level in your neighborhood, town or city. We need to more fully understand the specific challenges that illiteracy and low literacy have burdened your community with, so that we can more fully develop a workable tactical plan to reverse the literacy crisis and lift those burdens, using the FUNetix Reading App. The FUNetix curriculum is approximately 12 hours and 2,000 screens that take a child from the ABC's to a 2nd-grade reading level. Children learn the fundamentals of letters and sounds and how to blend sound symbols together to form words and sentences. The app uses a super-child-friendly, phonetic code called 21E, that makes it easy to learn how to read. The FUNetix Reading System is patented and uses a special diacritic decoding system to show children the irregular spelling patterns of English, and especially how to pronounce any English word. At the American Youth Literacy Foundation, our goal is to bring the FUNetix Reading App to children who are not learning how to read in school, either because they are in schools that are failing, or because they are in difficult situations at home for a variety of reasons. Many parents are desperate for an education solution for their children, but the challenge of teaching reading to children is too great for teachers with classes of up to 40 children or more, combined with a typical "off the shelf" reading curriculum that is confusing and doesn’t scale. Children get lost, confused, frustrated and bored; and many of them act out, forcing teachers to focus on classroom management as opposed to classroom learning. The REAL literacy rates in so many thousands of America’s elementary schools are 20% or less in 3rd grade and beyond! But it doesn't have to be that way; and FUNetix is going to change ALL of this, soon! The role of a Community Liaison is as a connector. You will help Youth Lit connect to your community and many hundreds of other communities across the United States by reaching out to understand exactly how the literacy crisis is affecting people in those communities, and by finding out what specific solutions they desire, and how best we can bring our literacy app into the homes and minds of the children who need it most. A Community Liaison is someone who is passionate about ending the literacy crisis in America, and finally creating that "Equal Playing Field" that everyone has been talking about for so long. But a Community Liaison also brings key ideas and action steps that they believe can be taken in order to make that happen. Such steps may involve working with specific people in the community, advertising at select locations, connecting with specific organizations, or otherwise finding ways to reach the parents and children that are most in need of a new solution to reading and education. Working together, we will radically, positively impact communities all across the United States, by bringing "Literacy for All" to the next generation of emerging learners. We are looking for six intelligent, creative, outgoing, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals with significant real-world experience and a willingness to both talk to and listen to people, and to identify ways to best share the benefits of our app with those children in need. This is a complex undertaking and we are looking for highly proficient and organized professional-minded individuals who have a track record of success in creating positive outcomes in their communities, and who are willing to reach beyond, to other communities like their own, to bring change across America. The specific action step that we need you to take now is to complete a google form that will be sent to you if you express interest in this position by hitting the "I'm interested" button. Just to be clear, our organization is an all-volunteer, mission-centric, extended virtual network, comprised of highly skilled and experienced individuals from around the country (and a few from around the world) who collaborate through cloud-based technology and platforms. Individuals interested in this position must have the confidence and ability to work in a virtual environment (as well as on the street and on the ground) using select networking and communications tools and platforms. Given the current "social distancing" environment that we find ourselves in, individuals must also be willing to pick up the phone, send out emails, schedule Zoom meetings and use other communications technologies to contact and build relationships within our target audience. Thank you! We hope we have given you enough information about who we are and what our mission and goals are; and we hope that this opportunity finds you at the right place and the right time in your career to make a difference and an impact, in an amazing way, for millions of children who are waiting for someone, or something, to lead them out of a life of impoverishment and into a future of unlimited possibility and potential. The specific action step that we need you to take now is to complete a google form that will be sent to you if you express interest in this position by hitting the "I'm interested" button. All of the information you provide in that Google form will help us develop a deeper understanding of your particular community and its needs. We will then contact a select number of people with follow up questions, and/or to schedule an interview. Just by filling out the form that will be sent to you, you will be making an invaluable contribution to this incredible cause! Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you and to working together to bring a future of unlimited potential to every child! Mr. R.

This mission is accomplished through the recruitment, training and on-going support and supervision of volunteers from the community who are appointed by the Juvenile Court judges to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates for these children. CASA Volunteers serve as voices for one of our most vulnerable populations - abused and neglected children. Volunteer advocates must be at least 21 years of age, have a clear criminal record, and complete CASA's training and screening process. Upon successful completion of the training and screening process, the new volunteer is assigned to a child. Once assigned to a child, the volunteer advocate works with the child and gathers information from everyone in the child's life including the child's biological parents, foster parents, medical and mental health professionals, social workers, therapists, teachers, and attorneys. CASA volunteers meet with their case supervisors on a monthly basis and they work together to formulate written recommendations to the Juvenile Court judges as to the child's best interests. CASA volunteers make critical differences in the lives of the children they serve in a multitude of ways by ensuring that each child receives the services needed to address their medical, emotional and educational needs as well as securing a safe and permanent home in the shortest time possible. We are currently recruiting volunteers. There are no special educational or professional requirements, but advocates must be at least 21 years old and live in the greater Montgomery County area. Do you have 10-15 hours per month available to make a difference in a child's life? Please contact our office at (301) 340-7458.

    Every time someone moves from one of our programs into their own home or apartment, we try to make sure they have the necessities. This is even more essential to those moving in right now. For a person who is vulnerable and homeless, moving into stable housing is the best chance they will have to protect themselves from COVID-19. Once we move people into a new unit, there’s a lot of things they still need to live there. That’s where you come in! Think of the last time you moved into a completely unoccupied space - what did you need? We’re hoping to find some members of the community to collect items for Welcome Home kits. Got a lot of friends? Ask each of them to donate one thing! Please note, with the dignity of it’s recipient in mind, we ask that kits be made entirely of new items. A full move in kit contains the following: A set of sheets, comforter, and pillow(s) Set of dishware Set of silverware One medium sized appliance Laundry basket Bucket of cleaning supplies Essential Toiletries This is the type of project that anyone can tackle. Whether you're just one caring soul or a whole group of them, you can help us make people feel safe and at home.
