You can provide this support through Soldiers’ Angels Chaplains Support Team. Items might include non-denominational letters to distribute to service members, as well as gifts and supplies that can be easily distributed to service members who may be needing extra support.

  • Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy Committee Member

    Are you looking for a chance to make a difference in your community? A way to have a real impact on climate issues that directly affect you, your business, your friends and neighbors and future generations? Then join our CPACE committee that is working to persuade our local government to pass an ordinance that will enable CPACE financing to be used for buildings in our community. Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (CPACE) financing is a special financing tool that helps pay for clean energy and energy efficiency upgrades to commercial buildings. We are trying to get the city council of Bend to pass an ordinance enabling this tool for Bend (it's already enabled for the state of Oregon). Our focus with this tool is to encourage its use for low-income housing, allowing building owners to upgrade their buildings and increase equity while lowering the energy costs for tenants. The committee will meet approximately once per month for about an hour. Tasks for individuals to accomplish to further the cause will be designated during meetings. This opportunity offers the chance for committee members to learn or hone skills such as communication with government officials, research, graphic design, giving virtual, public presentations, and more! We hope you'll join us and help our community work towards a more sustainable future!

  • Safe Tracks Committee Member

    Are you looking for a chance to make a difference in your community? A way to have a real impact on climate issues that directly affect you, your business, your friends and neighbors and future generations? Then join our Safe Tracks Campaign Committee that is working to pass federal regulations that improve the safety standards by which oil-by-rail is transported. The number of trains carrying highly flammable petroleum products by rail through Oregon is increasing, and a recent executive order from the White House opens the door for liquified natural gas (LNG) to be transported by rail as well. In our city, the tracks run through busy and highly developed areas. If a train carrying crude oil derails or catches fire, they can cause huge amounts of damage to anything within 1 mile of the tracks. In Bend, this 1-mile radius includes many schools, parks, all of Downtown, and large sections of the Deschutes River. In the case of a potential spill or derailment, disaster response and cleanup efforts could easily total in the millions or even billions of dollars. The city council of Bend passed a resolution opposing the transit of fossil fuel products by rail in our community on June 2, 2021. Our next step is to coordinate with our state and federal government officials to pass federal regulations improving the safety standards of oil-by-rail transport. The committee will meet approximately once per month for about an hour. Tasks for individuals to accomplish to further the cause will be designated during meetings. This opportunity offers the chance for committee members to learn or hone skills such as communication with government officials, research, graphic design, giving virtual, public presentations, and more! We hope you'll join us and help our community work towards a more sustainable future!

  • Virtual: Help children displaced from school by Covid-19 as a Community Outreach Lead

    Community Outreach/Distribution Team Lead: 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 ALL children displaced from school due to COVID-19, and even to help many adults who can't read. We are looking for three, 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 the comfort of their 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 in 2020, we launched this incredible smartphone app in the App Store and on Google Play, 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, crisis moment in American education , and a very real threat to the future success of millions of young students. We are partnered with an engineering team that was one of the five, $1 million finalists, in the XPrize for Global Learning competition, 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 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 which." Compare this to millions of students who have dropped out of school, primarily because they can't read (more than 10 million per decade (25% 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 nearly 12 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program in Philadelphia and central New Jersey, and we still provide one-on-one tutoring. But 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 (currently estimated at 80%), even into the most impoverished communities, we feel that the answer we have been searching for ABSOLUTELY comes 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 an average of just 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in about the same time. And this is where you come in. We have a LOT of opportunity in front of us to finish building and testing, and, ultimately, to deliver an end-user experience (the UX) to millions of children in America's inner cities and rural counties, in the barrios and the suburbs, and on the American Indian reservations, and everywhere in-between, with this smartphone app. But in order to do this, we need to complete three pieces of the equation: The Horse, The Cart, and the Payload. The Horse is the curriculum; and it is well under way in the conversion process from an analog to a digital curriculum. (We have designed already 1,500 of the nearly 2,000 screen, fully narrated, reading learning experience.) The Cart is the distribution system, the "how do we get it out into communities and to the children, once it's built?" Despite what some may think, just because we put an app in the App Store, doesn't mean it will go viral. There's an old adage that goes, "build a better mousetrap, and the world will NOT beat a path to your door!" You still have to market, publicize and distribute your invention, even if it's FREE, like ours! More on "The Cart," in a moment. And the Payload is the UX (the user experience). But it's not just the child (the ultimate beneficiary) who must enjoy the experience enough to continue through the progressive learning modules, it's also the parent, or guardian, or friend, or grandparent, or sibling, or concerned adult, who must be supported. And for that we are building the support system and the support network that will scale with the app, and not constrain the growth and penetration of the app into the vast layers and interconnected folds of American society. The UX is being tested and empowered to work in a controlled environment before it is released into an uncontrolled environment like the App Store or Google Play, where its success will depend upon ease of use, ease of understanding and the support that we provide to caring adults who download the app for the purpose of saving their child from living a life of impoverishment, without education, without access to information, and without hope. In addition, all of our external communications will be supported and cross connected through our website. Our brand, image, content and messaging will be a collaboration of our graphic design, UX, Communications and Web Mastery teams. The specific software we use to update and improve our website will be determined soon, after we have assessed all of the new component parts we wish to include in our web presence. As for the curriculum, we have approximately 1,500 of 2,000 screens completed. After the child learns the fundamentals of letters and sounds and how to blend sound symbols to form words and sentences (using a super-child-friendly, phonetic code called 21E), we transition them to English, where we utilize our patented diacritic decoding system to introduce them to the irregular letter patterns found in English spelling. From there, we continue to increase students' awareness of the various letter patterns and combinations, while simultaneously introducing them to more and more complex sentences, stories and interactive, fiction and non-fiction content. Our Curriculum Content Development team will be helping to build the final 10 modules plus additional content (300-500 screens) of the app and will be sourcing additional books, stories, games, puzzles and other content that children will transition to (an interactive "Content Library") after they have finished the 12-hour structured curriculum. There's much more to tell. You can read more about our story and about us on our website at www.YouthLit.org , however, keep in mind that many updates to that website are coming soon As for our Community Outreach / Distribution Team, our challenge is to bring the 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 on their own with upwards of 40+ children in a class in many cases, combined with a reading curriculum that is confusing and doesn’t scale. Children get lost, confused 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 this doesn’t have to be this way and FUNetix is going to change ALL of this, soon! Our Community Outreach Team Leads will be building relationships with community leaders of all types and varieties to first, assess needs, and then deliver solutions to millions of parents who have no other place to turn. Our goal is not simply to tell parents what WE have, but rather, to listen to their needs vicariously, through our community advocates, in order to best tailor our app-based solution to meet THEIR needs. We are partnering with thought leaders, community leaders, religious leaders, other non-profits and NGO’s, national leaders, role models, such as entertainment and sports figures, corporate leaders and philanthropists, and any and all people and organizations who are focused on fundamentally and permanently improving the education landscape for ALL of America’s children. Our Community Outreach and Distribution Team Leads are individuals with diverse backgrounds and with diverse interests and talents, but most of all, they are individuals who have a willingness to reach out to communities in need and to the leaders within those communities, as well as to other leaders who can help make a difference. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity to be one of the three leads for our Community Outreach/Distribution Team, please send us a cover letter and resume to HR@YouthLit.org. We are looking for intelligent, creative, outgoing, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals with significant real world experience and a willingness to both talk and listen to people and to identify ways to best share the benefits of our app with children in need. This is a complex undertaking and we are looking for highly proficient and organized professionals. 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 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 with our target audience. Thank you! We hope 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 some thing, to lead them out of a life of impoverishment and into a future of unlimited possibility and potential. We look forward to hearing from you and speaking with you about the future of literacy in America. Mr. R. Kali Woodward Founding, Executive Director

    You can change a child's life by becoming a mentor. In just 30 minutes per week, you can make a lasting impact in the life of a child. Children need positive role models. They need a resource, a confidant, a friend. Someone to help them make positive choices in life. Someone to help them think about consequences before they act. They need someone who will listen. They need a mentor. They need you. All mentors are required to attend a 90-minute orientation via Zoom and receive a background check and meet with their mentee at their school during their lunch period once a week at least 2-3 times a month.

  • Charlando con los ancianos con distanciamiento social (llamadas telefónicas):

    Riseboro Community Partnership está buscando voluntarios que estén interesados en pasar una hora de la semana conversando por teléfono con un ciudadano de la tercera edad. Nuestros ciudadanos de la tercera edad no pueden salir a la comunidad y están buscando un compañero con quien reír, hablar y disfrutar de su tiempo! Nuestro objetivo es hacer la transición de nuestras coincidencias telefónicas a coincidencias físicas una vez que se levantan las reglas de distanciamiento social, sin embargo, hay espacio para que los voluntarios mantengan relaciones telefónicas solo con las personas mayores con las que se relacionan. ¡Esta es una amistad mutuamente gratificante, donde puedes aprender sobre las personas mayores en tus vecindarios, sus estilos artísticos, intereses y los cambios que se han producido en la comunidad a lo largo de los años! Servimos a un grupo diverso de personas mayores y buscamos personas de todos los orígenes y edades (de 18 años en adelante) para ayudarnos a que nuestros adultos mayores se sientan más conectados con sus comunidades. Este programa de visitas amistosas está financiado por el Departamento para el Envejecimiento de Nueva York.

  • Conduct Weekly Check-ins on Homebound Seniors via Phone

    **California Residents Only, Preferably from Santa Clara County** Sourcewise Ambassador Program Human connection, fellowship and friendship is good for the mind and soul. Volunteers bring a little joy and companionship to homebound seniors in our community. Are you a natural nurturer who loves good conversation? The Sourcewise Ambassador Program is a perfect volunteer opportunity for you. Whether it’s a few minutes or an hour, a wellness call helps our elders feel connected during these uncertain times. By joining our Ambassador’s Program, you will positively impact our fellow community members’ lives by helping to prevent social isolation and loneliness-two of the most prevalent issues affecting seniors today due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Volunteer Duties: - Conduct calls to a short list of seniors on a weekly basis. The calls may range from a few minutes to longer, depending if the senior is open to friendly conversation with you or prefers to keep the wellness calls brief as just a check-in call. - Log in time spent on calls onto timesheet (digital) and send in to the Volunteer Coordinator via email every week. - Provide updates to Volunteer Coordinator via email on a weekly basis. - Bilingual volunteers needed (not required); especially Spanish, French, Russian, and Chinese speaking. We ask for California residents as Volunteers due to our background check process. Unfortunately, we are unable to include volunteers from other states due to being unable to perform an out-of-state background check.

AMIS welcomes and connects them with local American friends and families throughout metro Atlanta and provides a wonderful opportunity to connect to the world through an international friend. COVID-19 is a particularly difficult time for international students who are finding themselves isolated and lonely in a foreign country, making friendships through AMIS even more critical. This program matches an international student with an American individual or family in the local community for friendship and sharing of cultures. Your support can help an international student in their adjustment to American life, language and culture, as well as enrich your understanding of the world. During COVID-19, friendships can be virtual or in person, keeping in line with CDC guidelines.

    Would you like to help supply a deployed chaplain items to assit them in providing support and comfort to our deployed US Service Members? You can do so from the comfort of your home. You can provide this support through the Soldiers’ Angels Chaplains Support Team. Items might include non-denominational letters to distribute to service members, as well as gifts and supplies that can be easily distributed to service members who may be needing extra support.

We also strongly encourage these service members to submit their names for adoption through their chaplain.

Virtual Options include remote live opportunities where volunteers can "beam-in" to an in-person, face-to- face classroom where students are in a classroom with their teacher but when guests aren't allowed in OR volunteers can beam-in to a remote classroom when the students and teacher are all off-site/at home connecting remotely. As a remote live volunteer, you can choose several options. Volunteers can deliver a full JA program, parts of the program, share information about your career, participate in panel, or explore several other options! Volunteers also have the option to submit pre-recorded videos of JA program content or career information. In-Person options are varied and will be available per JA Area and local school and community guidelines.

    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.

  • Spiritual Care Hospice Volunteer

    near your home of officeDanbury, CT 06810
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Spiritual Support The word "spiritual" can be used in many ways. We understand spiritual life as each person’s unique experience of a power beyond himself or herself, a sense of order in the universe, a sense of purpose in living, and a sense of connection with everything. Spirituality also includes the organizing set of beliefs, values, hopes, and yearnings, by which each person makes sense of the frequently chaotic elements of life. At Seasons we believe that all people are spiritual, regardless of their specific religious affiliation or devotion. We believe that the spiritual life is most directly expressed and experienced in human connection, and that spiritual concerns are intertwined with every facet of our lives. Hospice and Spiritual Care During times of upheaval and change in life, we all may experience seasons of deep doubt and questioning. We may feel uprooted, set adrift, and utterly alone. Sometimes we respond with deep sadness, other times with numb silence, and still other times with rapid activity and an effort to prove to ourselves that we are still in control. At this time of pending loss, you may be asking "Why me?" or "Where is God?" or "Why do good people like my friend suffer so much?" or "What will I leave behind as a memory of myself?" Beliefs that once made sense and sustained you no longer seem valid. Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care is looking for caring and compassionate individuals who are willing to give of their time to help patients and families dealing with terminal illness. Spiritual care is one of the core values and principles in the Seasons Hospice Circle of Care. As a spiritual care volunteer at Seasons you may be asked to provide companionship and active listening that includes special readings, prayer, meditation and poetry. Our spiritual care volunteers can be seen reading sacred text for our patients and families and come from a variety of faith communities. As a Spiritual Care Volunteer it is important to remember that an "openness to listen" is vital in supporting others through a terminal illness. Companionship, friendly visits, spiritual and emotional support are only a small portion of what our trained Hospice volunteers provide on a daily basis. Caregiver relief and advocacy are also very important. Comprehensive volunteer orientation and training is required and provided free of charge.
