    We seek volunteers that are prepared to provide the necessary expertise for this life-saving work for the duration of the emergency. For clarity, this means work without pay. However, there will be formal acknowledgements and expressions of gratitude in a variety of formats. Our Ventilator has now gotten to a stage where we are testing the controlling software, however, the interface is still lacking some important features. We are seeking people with JavaScript experience and a good amount of time on their hands since the situation is deteriorating at an increasing pace. If this continues, medical professionals might become overloaded on a big scale and every bit of automatization and help from the distance will be life-saving. Minimal requirements: 6 months full-time JavaScript and React Experience Clear and clean coding style Standard version control and workflow habits Additional optimal requirements: Basics in UX-Design Basics in UI-Design Basics in Security Protocols and data encryption

  • Innovative Control Systems Engineer

    with ArdenVent

    In recent years there have been novel approaches to automating mechanical ventilation. The core idea is to intelligently regulate physiological variables (blood oxygenation etc.) rather than a physical variable (pressure, tidal volume). The development of this technology, however, is slow because communication protocols have only recently started to follow international standards necessary for inter-device control systems. To control physiological variables, many additional sensors have to be included. These devices all have medical grade certificates which are often unnecessary but bloat the cost of the devices to a level where physiological closed-loop control becomes simply impractical. Our Ventilator is designed to provide a doctor with all the information he might need to care for a patient, in the worst-case scenario even from home. Naturally, this opens up the door to physiological closed-loop control which will help take away work from the doctors and caregivers and really allow for safe remote control. We have several ideas on how such physiological closed-loop controls could be implemented but we lack the time to test our hypothesis and develop a proof of concept. We are therefore looking for a control systems engineer who can research whether public research on these concepts exists, realize a proof of concept or test such a system against simulation and of course, bring his/her own innovative ideas to the discussion. The advances in this field will contribute towards lowering the cost of mechanical ventilation beyond the pandemic. Minimal Requirements academic background in systems control 3+ years of work experience C++ coding skills (or can work closely with a C++ programmer to write the code for the Ventilator) 10h+ guaranteed weekly contribution Ideal Requirements 8+ years of work experience proficient in C++ and embedded systems development Experience with multi-dimensional and multi-level control systems Experience with Neural Networks

  • Roots of Empathy Volunteer Family (parent and baby) Windward Oahu schools

    Roots of Empathy (ROE) is an incredible international, evidence-based classroom program that has shown significant effect in reducing levels of aggression among schoolchildren by raising social/emotional competence and increasing empathy. It is designed for children ages 5 to 13, there is also a preschool version called Seeds of Empathy which will be available in Hawaii next school year. In our traditional program model the volunteer family goes into the classroom with the ROE Instructor about once a month for 9 months. This year we are delivering what is being called a Recovery Program which is being delivered virtually (more information on this is below). Roots of Empathy supports positive mental health and well-being, and creates a safe space for children to learn and talk about their feelings. We help them not only cope, but thrive. As a Volunteer Roots of Empathy Family, you will be part of a great movement to nurture and develop empathy in school children to prevent bullying, increase emotional resilience and nurture happy, kind children. At the heart of the program is an infant and parent whom partners with a trained Roots of Empathy Instructor to connect with a classroom of students and their teacher. Age eligible babies will have been born in June, July, August, September or October 2020. The children in the classroom get to know the parent and baby, and most especially they get to witness the attunement of the parent and infant in that most influential first relationship: which is a living example of empathy. Quality relationships act as a protection against negative or stressful experiences by increasing a child’s resilience and sense of belonging. The trained Roots of Empathy Instructor along with the curriculum are able to highlight this attachment relationship and demonstrate how the parent regulates the baby’s emotions. Every time the baby demonstrates some emotion, the children talk about the baby’s intention and what they think that the baby might be feeling. Through this experiential learning and engagement, they are learning the language for their own feelings and the feelings of others. When children feel connected and supported, they are freed up to engage, focus, learn, grow and feel happy. In Roots of Empathy, children develop empathy, which allows them to understand themselves and relate to others. Empathy is also a key ingredient to responsible citizenship and responsive parenting. Information on infant safety and development helps children to be more aware of issues of infant vulnerability such as Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), Shaken Baby Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) and second-hand smoke. Observations of a loving parent-child relationship give children a model of responsible parenting. The virtual Recovery Program starts in November and will end in April or May: The first 5 lessons in the ROE Recovery Program will take place between November and mid December. These lessons are once a week. These initial 5 lessons support students’ mental health, well-being and adjustment back into the regular routine of school and help them as they process their experiences of COVID-19. The volunteer family will participate in each of the first 5 lessons by sending photos, stories (about baby and about parenting), as well as videos of baby to the Instructor to share with the classroom. Before every lesson, the Instructor will provide specifics of what photos and videos the parent will need to take. For example, the Instructor may ask for a video of the baby when they are happy and a video of when they are sad. The Instructor may also ask the parent to share how they feel when baby is happy and when baby is sad. There will also be times when the students will prepare questions about the baby and the parent will be asked to send a video response. The volunteer parent will send the Instructor photos and videos (through email, text, or if files are bigger using a free file sending site like WeTransfer). The volunteer family will be given a Roots of Empathy t-shirt and we ask that you please have baby wear the shirt for all photos and videos. (we will give you multiple sizes to use as baby grows) As an example, for the first Roots of Empathy lesson in November, the Instructor will ask the parent to send a photo of bay in the Roots of Empathy t-shirt along with baby’s birth weight, birth length, and birth date. The Instructor will share this with the students in lesson one. After each lesson there will likely be questions from the children, comments or feedback that the Instructor will share with the volunteer parent Names of the first 5 Lessons What Happened Lost & Found Roles & Responsibilities Body Language Hope & Resilience In January, the Roots of Empathy program could take place in person, in the classroom (if schools are open). If schools are closed or if the volunteer family would prefer not to go into the classroom in person - then the program can continue on being delivered virtually. Between January through May the Roots of Empathy family visit lessons are about once a month. The Roots of Empathy Instructor will connect with the Volunteer Family towards the end of the year to discuss how the program and their participation will look in the New Year. Note that depending on the situation with COVID, some schools may decide to start the program in January instead of in November. The program would still end in April or May.

  • Volunteer Manager

    Our mission Immigrant Care is a non-profit organization dedicated to enabling undocumented immigrants to get access to affordable health care. Because of Covid-19, we have developed a telehealth mobile application that refugees and undocumented immigrants can use to reach doctors that want to help their communities, with total confidentiality while paying pre-negotiated affordable rates. Essential workers are making it possible for Americans to stay safe at home now during COVID-19. However, many undocumented workers comprise this essential frontline workforce and they have challenges accessing healthcare. Our plan consists of launching our mobile application in the Latino American community of the NY metropolitan area. But our goal is to serve ALL communities in need across America, and maybe the World! But we need your support to take the next steps. We are looking for a volunteer manager to join the administrative team!

  • Paid: Information Technology Encore Fellow

    Encore.org: Encore Fellowship Opportunity with Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services You are a seasoned professional with a minimum of 25+ years of experience, who is retired or in transition. You want to continue to work and want to do something with meaning. You are ready for a second act for the greater good. Encore Fellowships are structured programs that place highly-skilled, experienced professionals into social-purpose organizations, where they help nonprofits build capacity, and ultimately, have a greater impact on their communities. Fellows commit to 1,000 hours of work over 6 to 12 months. They are paid a stipend of $20,000 and are integrated into the nonprofit’s leadership team. About Didi Hirsch Mental Services Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services (DHMHS) has provided free mental health, substance use disorder and suicide prevention services since 1942. Dedicated to serving communities where stigma or poverty limits access, Didi Hirsch helps more than 150,000 children and adults from 10 locations and 100 schools throughout Los Angeles and Orange counties each year. Their outpatient services include counseling, medication management and case management. Intensive services are delivered to those experiencing severe mental illness in the community, home or clinic settings while residential treatment programs are also available. DHMHS’s Suicide Prevention Center (SPC) operates the oldest 24/7 suicide prevention crisis line in the nation serving those at-risk of suicide or those who have lost a loved one to suicide. The Suicide Response Team offers immediate support at the scene of suicides and for those who have lost a loved one to suicide, SPC provides bereavement support groups and counseling. They also offer support groups to individuals who have attempted suicide. Finally, staff and volunteers provide prevention training to mental health professionals and others through schools, law enforcement agencies, hospitals, counseling centers, and places of worship. Encore Fellow Information Technology: Primary Role and Responsibilities When the Coronavirus lockdown was put in place, IT’s focus rapidly pivoted to moving over 500 employees and 200 crisis line volunteers to remote working. For many employees this meant acquiring and configuring new laptop computers and providing other equipment and helpdesk support. There were considerably more challenges moving the suicide crisis line to remote working and it is apparent that the current call center software is not adequate for their needs. As the senior IT director moves from a highly reactive mode to proactive, he needs support in the following areas: Disaster Planning Assessment of medium and long-term infrastructure needs Development of an infrastructure strategy and deployment plan Identification of business systems and technology tool needs Identify trends in healthcare technology and how new tools can be utilized to improve services delivery and experience of clients and staff Development of the IT team to meet future needs of the agency Mentoring IT team members within a growing $50 million organization

  • Parent Leader - Northshore

    with AWOFINC

    Parent Leaders are ambassadors in the community, by offering other parents information about proven "parenting techniques" related to protective factors (and community-based programs to refer their teens to); addressing issues of stigma and help-seeking; and countering the shame and negative experiences that other parents of adolescents are facing. These recruited and trained Parent Leaders will conduct peer education sessions with parents in their communities, whether they take place at parent workshops, community events, small-group discussions or one-on-one dialogues. After the training, the Parent Leaders will then immerse themselves in the fabric of their neighborhoods, prepared to teach other parents how to give "immediate emotional support" to the youth in their lives. Parent Leaders will be the spark for a community-wide skills transfer process. Peer-to-peer community outreach using Parent Leaders is an effective and empowering way to engage Chicago-area residents in ongoing conversation around violence prevention, mental wellness and positive coping strategies to stress and trauma. In this component of the Parent Leadership Training Initiative (PLTI), the Parent Leadership in Action Network (PLAN) will: Identify low-income parents and other caregivers of color in various communities who have been "through the fire" in dealing with their own issues (life struggles) and have navigated the tricky waters and challenges of raising adolescents; Recruit these parents for volunteerism (8 hours per week) doing community education and outreach to their peers (other parents of adolescents); Arm these parents with content (mental wellness) communications, training on prevention (violence) strategies and leadership training; Provide ongoing personal development opportunities, including group activities; and Prepare these new parent leaders to become "go-to" resources in the neighborhood.

  • Reading Tutor Needed! For Virtual Tutoring

    Volunteers are needed to work with students throughout the day. Because of COVID-19 volunteers are not allowed to physically enter the school, yet students are still in need of help. Volunteers will work with one to two students depending on if they want to volunteer for 30 minutes or for one hour. Volunteers and students with work through google classroom and hangouts to meet the requirements of the DYAD Reading Program. Training will be held through either zoom or hangouts. The goal is to help as many students as possible, this year with the global pandemic many students have fallen behind and need your help to achieve their reading goals. Josh Shipp stated that "Every kid is one caring adult away from being a SUCESS story". That is why as the program director I am reaching out to the caring adults in my community help with this program. Helping one or two students, each of which needs that one on one help, this is a difficult year with the lack of volunteers inside our school. Volunteers would commit to tutoring 1-2 times a week, either for on, one-hour session, or two half hour sessions. Currently schedules are Mon/Thur. and Tue/Fri. Each volunteer is someone who is making a difference and can help our students education and future. So if you can help, take the time during your week to virtually tutor the students here at Burch Creek Elementary that would be much appreciated.

  • Playtime Club Facilitator

    with EFBA

    The ideal candidate for this volunteering opportunity is a bilingual French-English speaker, who wants to become a dual immersion teacher, who loves being around children and/or who wants to learn how to teach online K-5 children. This is a volunteer role, two to four hours a week, depending on your availability. The virtual playtime runs one hour a day, Mondays through Thursdays, in the middle of the afternoon, during the school year. Additional time to debrief and coordinate with the activity leader may be required (approx. 3o minutes-1 hour per week). Educational Goals: At EFBA we believe that children learn best through play. Besides our afterschool, children are invited to partake into a playtime. Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, our in-person playtime has migrated online. The now virtual playtime meets the same 3 educational goals of our camps: 1.We want children to remain active and to move! Child psychologists have long established that movement is proven to soothe anxiety and fight depression, not just in adults: our activities are designed to provide a minimum of physical activities. 2. We want children to be exposed and speak French! Children won’t be staring passively at the virtual activities. They will be encouraged to interact with the facilitator, with the activity leader and with their peers in French. 3.We want children to create social and emotional connections with their peers! Due social distancing during the pandemic, the children's universe has shrunk. Still they have social emotional needs. The 2 tele-recesses are designed to create a safe space to make friends and play freely. Format: Our virtual playtime takes place online from 3:15 pm PST till 4:15 pm PST, before or after our afterschool program, Mondays through Thursdays. It is composed of two 15-minute supervised "tele-recesses" ("télé-récrés"), from 3:15 pm PST until 3:30 pm PST and from 4:00 pm PST till 4:15 PST, and one 30-minute session of structured activities. During the tele-recess, the facilitator is the only adult in the virtual playground. During the structured part of the virtual playtime, a leader leads the activity and the facilitator supports the leader. For the children’s experience to be rewarding and engaging, both roles have to collaborate and work as a duo. Role of the volunteer facilitator: During the 2 tele-recesses, the role of the facilitator is to "lay back", while making sure that nobody is bullied and all children feel included. During the structured activity, as a facilitator, you will be helping the leader on every "behind the scene" aspect. This role is critical for the session to run smoothly and be a success for participants. Guidelines Please read carefully the guidelines below as they contain a lot of helpful tips and recommendations and will give you an understanding of what to expect during the live session, so that you are prepared. Before the live session: 1/ Be ready to welcome participants online 15 mns before the structured session starts to check the technical aspects (the link works, the sound, the camera works, etc..). 2/ Let the children "play" by "themselves". Encourage them to speak French. Make sure the chatbox does not go awry or reverses to English. During the live session: 1/ Allow children to enter the meeting if you see any requests. Count children and verify attendance. If anyone is missing, check your attendance sheet and call the parents. Maybe they need help locating the class code or link. 2/ At the beginning of the session, welcome everyone and encourage children to put their camera and microphone on. 3/ All children should have the camera on and the microphone on to be able to actively participate and engage with the activity leader and the other children. Teach the kids where to unmute themselves. 4/ If for some reason someone is really loud or there's too much background noise that is disrupting the activity, you may mute the child, but remember they need to be able to unmute themselves to interact and communicate. So remind them to unmute themselves as soon as the instruction is given. 5/ If you still see children who don’t have Camera or microphones on, after a few vocal reminders, contact the parents (you will receive the list of names and phone numbers). 6/ if there's a technical program and the leader has to log off and back on, the facilitator must keep kids entertained, jump in and lead the activity: Be ready to take over if needed. 7/ Mute yourself during the session and speak only if you have to. For example: To communicate with the leader of the session in case you cannot see / hear him/her (i.e too far, muted, music too loud, leader not in the frame or frozen) To play the activity or help your colleague lead the activity (which we encourage you to do - but keep in mind that you may need to leave the activity at any moment to solve technical or other problems) If you have to take over the session If you see inappropriate behavior from the children which is disrupting the session 8/ Monitor activities on the chat box. If you see a student who is using the chatbox so often that it’s disrupting the session, or who is posting inappropriate messages, contact the child’s parents during or after the session to let them know. 9/ Record moments of the live session (take screenshots, screen recordings - remember to check if some parents have opted out and do not want their children's pictures to be taken, even internally) - Record activity for training purposes when instructed by your supervisor. 10/ Keep your phone close at hand with the Slack application open, in case the leader/your supervisor needs to contact you. After the live session 1/ Thank everyone on the Google Classroom stream and share some nice screenshots / video recordings you may have taken so that parents can see them. 2/ Debrief with the session leader to see what went well and what needs to be improved 3/ When necessary, contact parents about child’s behavior you may have observed during the session. Language awareness: All interactions between the facilitator and the leader need to take place in French. Interactions between the facilitator and the parents may be in French or in English depending on the context. Interactions with the children need to happen in French. In case of conflict, sorrow, or visible distress, exceptional recourse to English may be allowed but needs to be analyzed after the session with the Supervisor. Never make comments on the children in French (even in slang) through the Zoom chat box or orally. Always use Slack.

  • MENtors Needed

    CASA of San Mateo County are Court Appointed Special Advocates giving a foster child a voice in the court room. CASA advocates create a one-on-one, consistent relationship with the child they serve. They also mentor the child throughout the time the child is under the court's supervision. Male Mentor's can change and empower a young man's life and be a positive role model for that child. Currently, many male children are left without a CASA advocate due to lack of male volunteers. According to the "Bureau of Labor Statistics", in 2015, 21.8% of males were involved with volunteering and 27.8% were female. For this study, 62,623 volunteer's were surveyed in total; 26,498 being male and 36,126 being female. (http://www.bls.gov/news.release/volun.nr0.htm) According specifically to CASA of San Mateo County, in the last fiscal year - 19% of advocates were male and 81% were female. Regarding both statistics, there is a significantly higher rate of female volunteer's versus male volunteer's. CASA of San Mateo County wants to change this statistic!

  • Investigative Reporters & Media Reporters

    In response to the civil unrest our nation has experienced (United States of America) Surrounding covert 19 lock-downs and racial inequality, we are forming a counsel to assess, find, and implement out-of-the-box solutions for various social issues (Such as how covert 19 is affecting individuals and their communities, racial divides, poverty, drugs, rampant crime, gangs, etc.). Our organization would then find ways of implementing the solutions. You and your colleagues would work closely together (virtually) to conduct interviews, compile relevant data, and find viable out-of-the-box solutions (multiple solutions). Every step of the process will be documented and totally transparent. This information would then be posted on our website so everyone can see the work that is being done. Our hope is in doing so perhaps others can adapt some of our ideas, concepts, and results to their own individual and community situation. No matter where you are in the United States you can contribute. Not every job will be a good fit for everyone, but everyone can contribute. But most importantly, we want volunteers who are willing to work closely with their communities to resolve their collective problems.

    We reply to every inquiry from the e-mail address: Information@USImmigrantCafe.org, if you do not receive a reply within 3 business days please check your spam folder and/or reach out to us. Do you have a favorite ethnic restaurant in your community you would like to share with others? Would you like to help that immigrant restaurant owner promote their business and see a few more people through the front door? Let us tell you a little about us: Uncle Sam's Immigrant Café (USImmigrantCafe.org) is an online platform celebrating and promoting our country’s immigrant restaurateurs, their unique cuisine and dream of building a successful American business. We celebrate American diversity in food and culture and want to emphasize that, despite our differences, we are one country where everyone unites around the table. The pandemic has hit everyone hard, some more than others. The most common road for an immigrant business owner to take in pursuing the American Dream is to open a restaurant. Often, these are small family run operations with limited capital or resources. Many of these restaurants are barely hanging-on during the pandemic and a small act of kindness such as words of encouragement or praise from you will help them endure these challenging times. The " I Love Your Food" project at Uncle Sam’s Immigrant Cafe is a simple and quick way for you to help. You will write a short note on our template about what you love at your favorite immigrant owned restaurant; you will snap a photo of it and post it to our Facebook group and tag your restaurant. We would encourage you to print out the note and mail it to them, but this step is optional. While we often feel overwhelmed by what is going on in the world, and it feels like there is little we can do to change things..... please remember that individually we are drops of water but collectively we are an ocean. Imagine the encouragement your restaurateur will feel while reading your note. Sometimes all we need is a little encouragement to make it to the other side.

  • Weekly Farmer's Market

    Norwalk Community Health Center, Inc.120 Connecticut AvenueNorwalk, CT 06854
    Wed, September 2, 2020 - Wed, November 18, 2020

    If you are looking for a way to give back in the community, please consider our outdoor Farmer's Market as a (gloved, social distanced) hands-on opportunity to make a difference. Volunteers who can give us one or two hours on one or more Wednesdays between 10:45 am and 3 pm are needed this summer and fall to ensure vendors and shoppers are observing social distancing, mask, and hand sanitizing protocols, to staff information tables with nutritional information, and lend a hand during our COVID19-modified Healthy Back to School and Eating Well days during national Health Center Week in August. Bilingual Spanish/English desirable but not required. Volunteers will be provided with masks and gloves. Our Market will be opening for the 2020 season on Wednesday, July 8 and will return every Wednesday from 11 am to 3 pm until Thanksgiving. Norwalk Community Health Center hosts a public Farmer's Market in its parking lot every Wednesday in season. It has provided access to fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, honey, and plants for the past 10 years and fills an important and growing need for our patients and in our neighborhood. The Health Center's Farmer's Market voucher program, funded by individual contributions and support from Newman's Own Foundation, Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and others makes fresh produce more affordable as well more accessible to food-insecure patients by stretching their food dollars. More than 300 patient families used these vouchers to shop at our Farmer’s Market for seasonal local produce in 2019. Given the spike in unemployment and underemployment that has affected our patients in greater proportion that the rest of the community, we anticipate an even busier season in 2020. Corporate, Faith-based or other Groups - together or with one or more members rotating from week to week- are welcome.

  • SMART Recovery meeting facilitator

    The New Haven areaNew Haven, CT 06510
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    The Humanist Association of Connecticut is supporting the expansion of SMART Recovery in Connecticut. SMART Recovery is a 25+ year old, science-based, abstinence-oriented, self-empowering addiction recovery program, and is a recognized resource for substance abuse and addiction recovery by the American Academy of Family Physicians, the Center for Health Care Evaluation, The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), US Department of Health and Human Services, and the American Society of Addiction Medicine. You do not need to be in recovery to be a meeting facilitator. Your task will be to chair the meeting, set the agenda, and teach SMART Recovery tools when appropriate. You will need to pass an online training course, which costs $99 and requires 20-30 hours work over 6 weeks. There is a standing scholarship for this course for facilitators in New England. At the moment almost all meetings are online on the Zoom platform, using Zoom host accounts assigned by SMART Recovery USA. Our existing volunteers will assist in finding a location for a meeting, and in publicizing the meeting. We will also help facilitate the first few meetings until you are comfortable facilitating on your own. Our other facilitators will be able to stand in for you from time to time so that your meeting still takes place. Meeting participants are currently highly motivated individuals who seek out alternatives to traditional 12-step based programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous. The international SMART Recovery web site is at http://smartrecovery.org, and the details on facilitator training are at http://www.smartrecovery.org/facldtrain/ The local SMART Recovery web site is http://www.smartrecoveryct.org/ and we're on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/SMARTRecoveryCT) and Meetup ( http://www.meetup.com/SMART-Recovery-Connecticut/) We do have other, related, volunteer needs if facilitating a meeting is not for you.

    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Opening a birthday giving chapter is easy, fun, and a great way to give back to the community! Here's how it works: 1. We schedule a video call with you to explain how the process works. 2. Our first choice is to find a Salvation Army location (or another organization that is willing to pick up the birthday bags from your house) that is geographically close to where you live. 3. We contact the Salvation Army (or another organization that is willing to pick up the birthday bags from your house) and explain The Birthday Giving Program's mission. This organization should be able to pick up the birthday bags from your house. 4. You order the birthday bag supplies off of Amazon or another online store and have the gifts shipped to your house. Each birthday bag costs between $5 and $10, depending on how many gifts you decide to put in the bag. Your goal is to provide 10 birthday bags to the organization each month. Each birthday bag includes the same gift items, which will go to kids of a specific age group! 5. Once you have packed the birthday bags, you contact the organization and they pick up the birthday bags from your house! If you are interested in serving the senior citizen or veterans division let us know and we can find an organization to connect you with!
