  • Coral Reef flood prevention simulation, Scenario Planning & serious gaming Volunteer, CrowdDoing

    Coral Reef & Flood Simulation Project Coral Reef flood prevention simulation, Scenario Planning & serious gaming Volunteer, CrowdDoing Overview The USGS’s latest study notes that coral reef barriers provide flood protection for more than 18,000 people and $1.8 billion worth of coastal infrastructure and economic activity annually in the United States. However, this benefit is rarely acknowledged by the general public and key stakeholders in related fields. CrowdDoing sees this gap and proposes a serious game project to raise the public awareness of the environmental benefits of coral reefs, educate stakeholders, and encourage additional actions to reduce environmental pollution that puts coral reefs at risk. The main objective of this project is to develop a pledging platform for stakeholders including experts, government officials, and students who desire to bring social innovations to the problem and support. By introducing an interactive gamified platform to explain how coral reefs contribute to flooding prevention, stakeholders will gain knowledge and learn facts about the problem, find partners with similar interests, and create impact. This is done by identifying synergies, sharing knowledge and promoting and improving cooperation among researchers, social innovators, and communities interested in addressing the challenge. CrowdDoing is building a team of volunteers for the production of this project. The involvement of volunteers contributes to the project in different ways. It provides opportunities for volunteers to demonstrate mastery, upskilling, building connection between volunteers, health & wellbeing benefits as well as social impact itself. It can also be a frame for non-experts to take responsibility for advancing fields that traditionally are exclusively the domain of experts. For example, citizen science is democratizing the role of scientists so that anyone can take responsibility for advancing scientific knowledge and progress. Analogously, "citizens" be engaged in other fields that have formerly been exclusively left to experts. CrowdDoing welcomes anyone with an interest in the vision to join the team and build the global platform for social innovations. Why serious games? Serious games combine entertainment with education and civic engagement. Serious gaming is a widely used technique to educate people with diverse backgrounds and has proven effective in a range of contexts. Games are also one of the most popular entertainment products and are well received by the public, especially the young. With the help of various game distribution platforms, digital games can easily reach out to a large number of audiences and achieve impact goals that would otherwise not be feasible. Games can also become entry points for deeper participation. Serious games, such as "Fold It," for example, have been successful at supporting advances in research into cancer therapies. How are we going to achieve the goals in our serious game for coral reefs? There are three stages for this project: A Single player game - multiple role simulation of a specific area with real-world data. A Multi-player game - multiple role simulation of selected areas with real-world data. A Massively Multi-player Online gamified platform - simulation of multiple roles with real-world data, supporting various strategies of relevant social innovation. We started with a single-player game project to lay the foundation for both technologies and product design. The primary goal is to design a game with multiple roles/stakeholders participating and simulating the results with real-world data. In the next stage, we will support multiplayer functionality to emphasize collaboration among stakeholders through the real-time multiplayer gaming experience. The ultimate goal of this project is to create a multiplayer online platform that simulates global ecosystems and supports the participation of different stakeholders in real-time. It will evolve into a platform that, in addition to serving educational purposes, also fosters research on simulations of how the human activity would affect the local and global environment and actions that stakeholders can take to achieve positive environmental goals. We are looking for a Healthcare Data Analyst to gather and analyze healthcare data from multiple sources (e.g. insurance processing, clinical operations, patient behavior) to extract trends and business insights. To succeed in this role, you should be analytical and resourceful. You should also be an excellent communicator who’s able to tell the story behind raw data to non-technical audiences. If you also have experience in the healthcare industry, we’d like to meet you. Coral Reef flood prevention simulation, Scenario Planning & serious gaming Volunteer, CrowdDoing Understand health care operations and systems Create and validate record-keeping processes Pull and integrate data from disparate sources Evaluate and preprocess raw information Delve into data to discover discrepancies and patterns Build models that capture a wide range of health care operations Present and explain information in an accessible way Suggest ways to both increase healthcare quality through pilots and ensure costs benefits feasibility Collaborate with management and internal teams to implement and evaluate improvements Coral Reef flood prevention simulation, Scenario Planning & serious gaming Volunteer, CrowdDoing Proven experience as a Healthcare Data Analysis Experience in data analysis and visualization methods Understanding of healthcare procedures Knowledge of Extract, Transform and Load (ETL) frameworks Proficient in SQL and analysis tools (e.g. SAS) Excellent analytical and communication skills Outstanding organizational and problem-solving aptitude BSc/BA in Health Informatics, Statistics, Mathematics or a related field "To help support you joining the right part of CrowdDoing for you, please use this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSftd6E0tyV2uq7mMty1rZ80BB2MSGhbnof9gRBvaQXbrttIkg/viewform?usp=sf_link" The only way CrowdDoing.world can realize its impact potential is through virtual volunteers,service learners(http://blog.reframeit.com/service-learning-and-skilled-volunteering/), and micro-leaders (https://real-leaders.com/leveraging-micro-leadership-to-make-aspirational-goals-achievable/) coming together.

We do so by analyzing scientific research and clinical evidence, gathering new evidence through data science and citizen science, and recommending to individuals optimal combinations of teas, tinctures, and powders that can be used to achieve each individual's mental health goals. We conduct this research with the goal of allowing people to make informed decisions about their health and to increase access to healthy stress-coping alternatives. These healthy coping mechanisms can reduce reliance on harmful self-medication practices such as alcohol abuse or behavior likely to lead to opioid addiction. Value Proposition: Tinctures, teas and powders from herbal medicine combinations can represent better risk/reward ratios Through citizen science and data science over time we have the aspirational goal to meet and exceed evidence parity with regards to evidence of effectiveness for herbal medicines for stress & anxiety compared with pharmaceuticals. That mission is attractive for people to participate in as its an opportunity for global collaboration to create increasingly usable natural medicine for stress and anxiety.

  • Newborn PEPS group facilitator (Virtual) (12 weeks commitment from start date)

    with PEPS

    PEPS is a non-profit organization that connects parents to strengthen families and build community through parent peer-support groups. PEPS groups meet weekly and are facilitated by a PEPS-trained Leader. Each meeting allows parents the opportunity to share the week's concerns, successes, issues, and joys as well as time for a discussion on topics related to parenting and children (sleeping, feeding, adjusting to parenthood, etc.) The PEPS program model is based on the 5 Protective Factors from Strengthening Families, which help build resilient families, positive connections and support for parents, and reduce negative outcomes, such as abuse and neglect. Groups meet for 2 hrs each week in the daytime [10-:30 - 12:30 PST] or in the Evening [6:30 - 8:30 PST], the same day each week for 12 weeks. Leaders commit to working with their group for 12 consecutive weeks, fewer if you choose to co-lead with a friend, spouse, partner, or colleague. PEPS provides specialized training and group leaders have access to experienced PEPS staff mentorship and a wealth of resources online. 98% of PEPS groups are facilitated by volunteers who are passionate about supporting new parents through the first critical months of life with a new baby. Over 4000 families rely on PEPS volunteers each year. PEPS facilitators are compassionate, empathetic, resourceful, and real. They don't have all the answers, but they are passionate about helping parents, generating ideas, finding information, and building communitiy together. Some leaders give back as a way of honoring their own PEPS experience. Many are new to PEPS. All tell us they find great joy and satisfaction in helping new parents connect and share through their PEPS groups.

  • Adult Literacy Tutor-Be the Positive Change in Cleveland (Virtual Tutoring)

    Got a soft spot for sentence composition? Love long division or adore algebra? How about sharing your everyday reading, writing, and math skills with a dedicated adult learner in your community? Seeds of Literacy, an award-winning nonprofit organization that provides free GED prep and basic education to adults in the Cleveland area, has an urgent need for people just like you to volunteer as adult literacy tutors. The shocking truth is that an estimated 66% of adults in Cleveland are functionally illiterate, and may struggle with everyday necessities like reading a bus schedule and understanding medication labels. This is where you can make a very real difference! Tutors work one-to-one with students to improve reading, writing, and math skills, offer encouragement and support, and help students develop positive attitudes towards learning. Generally we ask that tutors come to one class session per week for one year. We can, however, make accommodations for those with special circumstances. Classes are two hours long, and we offer a flexible class schedule with sessions scheduled throughout the day to accommodate personal preference and availability. Tutoring sessions take place in our Virtual Classroom on Zoom. You don’t have to be an educator to help - we’ll train you. To start the process, please complete the Volunteer Application: https://www.seedsofliteracy.org/volunteer-application/

  • Marketing and social media for daily news website focused on helping the world

    We are looking for an individual with a mind for marketing to join our team to help make more people become aware of our great nonprofit website. Our organization focuses on news about making the world a better place, particularly news related to topics such as global poverty, philanthropy, climate change, voluntarism and human rights. All volunteering is via the computer -- you can be anywhere in the world. The marketing volunteer usually does a mix of the following: 1) Research potential nonprofits that would be a good match for our website. Nearly all of our news is oriented towards making the world a better place, and that's also the mission of most nonprofits We particularly focus on things like global poverty, human rights, democracy, climate change and fighting modern-day slavery. So people who work at and donate to nonprofits that focus on those topic areas are an ideal audience for our news website. Therefore, we want to find those nonprofits and reach out to them. 2) The second main area is doing the outreach to the nonprofits and asking them if they can do either or both of : a) let their team members know about us. and b) let their supporters know about us in their newsletters or social media pages. In the big picture, if their supporters learn more about these topics, they will be better and more committed long-term supporters. So it's to their benefit if their supporters read our articles. It's a win-win for them and for us. We will primarily contact them via email and their social media accounts. 3) Volunteers also research potential media outlets and blogs to cover our site, send out our press releases, and keep track of coverage of our site that has occurred. The volunteer also helps promote the website by updating our Facebook, Twitter and other social media pages, attracting new followers, and interacting with our existing followers. 4) We are also creating many exciting new websites that you could be involved in marketing. They fall into two broad categories: A) a group of innovative websites to provide other nonprofits (and their supporters) with unique tools they can use to raise money for their causes. This link below gives an overview: click the "See More" buttons at the end of the sections. In the future, each logo will go to a unique website focused on that fundraising tool. About half of the logos are already linked to early drafts of the sites: http://maximumgood.org/ A few examples are: https://volunteerathon.herokuapp.com/ http://giveitup.net/ http://loseathon.org/ This is a sample of how a person's fundraising page will look - the format will be the same at most sites, but each will have a unique logo, activity and color scheme: http://loseathon.org/fundraiser We've ported the entire IRS database of 1 million nonprofits to our website, so all 1 million nonprofits will automatically have pages at all of the fundraising websites. E.g. - this is how a nonprofit profile will look http://loseathon.org/nonprofit/ B) new projects to fight global poverty, slavery and climate change. You can see the logos of many of them at these links. In the future clicking on each logo will go to a unique website: http://fortheearth.org/ There are other climate change websites we're creating and the best ones are not up there yet. http://fortheslaves.org/ One of the anti-slavery websites is a modern-day equivalent of the Underground Railroad. You can see the video we made for it and a draft of the website here - when we launch, it will be at .org - http://virtualrailroad.info No marketing experience is required, but you must be organized, pay attention to detail and be good at communicating. The marketing position is a minimum of seven hours per week for a minimum of five months. We tend to give preference to applicants who can do a sizable number of hours. You will be doing real stuff that directly brings our website to more people and supports our nonprofit's mission to help the world. You will also gain valuable experience that will build your skills and look great on a resume. Some of our volunteers have gone on to work at full-time marketing jobs for companies such as Reply.com and Bonfire Marketing. Two of our volunteers started their own non-profit organization after eight months of volunteering with us.

  • ConnectingWithU Phone Pal

    This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for someone looking to make a difference in the life of a senior. ConnectingWithU is a free, telephone reassurance service that provides emotional support for Seniors in Broward County, offering an individualized, emotionally safe space for Seniors to express their feelings and concerns while staying interconnected to others from the comfort of their own home. Studies show that Seniors disconnected from regular human interaction can feel isolated, depressed, require increased medical services or even potential institutional placement. A caring call from a ConnectingWithU Phone Pal can help prevent these feelings or results and make a positive change in the lives of those involved in this special program. Our CWU Phone Pal volunteers reach out by phone regularly to these seniors to offer a friendly check-in and an opportunity to feel connected to the community beyond their front door.
