  • Career Mentors - Chicagoland

    with AWOFINC

    Career mentors are staff members that provide individualized services to participants. Some service providers refer to these staff as career coaches, case managers, or youth development specialists. The Partnership uses the term "career mentor" to recognize the unique relationship that effective staff members develop with young adults. Providing Opportunity Youth with quality career exploration, training and internship services is much more impactful when coupled with one-on-one support and mentoring. Staff are often required to provide young participants with guidance, motivation and a positive example, as they assist them in pursuing employment and training goals. They serve as mentors, even when not specifically identified as such. Career mentors should have at least 3 years of related work experience. Please note that some referral sources, such as juvenile justice agencies or schools, may require that staff complete a criminal background check and meet specific qualifications prior to working with youth. The Partnership also encourages service providers to connect youth to volunteer mentors, from the partner businesses and/or community.

  • Sew Masks to Support Affordable Housing!

    Looking for a hands-on activity at home? Trade in your hard hat and hammer for a sewing machine and fabric, and make cloth masks for essential workers, your senior neighbors, or even our Habitat staff, still working hard on site. Looking for fabric ideas? Try using an old Habitat t-shirt! While cloth masks can’t be used for those serving on the frontline in hospitals, according to the CDC, cloth masks are a great way to prevent the spread throughout our communities. Check out this video Habitat staffer, Patti, put together to show you how to turn your Habitat t-shirts of the past into masks to serve your community or our Habitat staff. You can also get your friends and family to join you in this activity! You can make it a zoom party or group FaceTime if you can’t be with your loved ones right now. Completed masks for Habitat staff and volunteers can be mailed to: Habitat for Humanity East Bay/Silicon Valley c/o Volunteer Team 2619 Broadway Oakland, CA 94612 THANK YOU! We appreciate you helping keep our staff (and future volunteers) safe! If you plan to send us homemade masks, let us know by emailing Volunteer@HabitatEBSV.org.

  • 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.

  • Virtually Tutor Refugee Students in Chicago!

    FORA is dedicated to empowering refugees through education. We welcome all refugees into our center but most of our current students are Rohingya Muslims from Burma who have arrived here in the US after escaping genocide. When they arrive in the US, these kids are placed in the grade-level appropriate to their age, even though they may never have attended regular school before. The kids face multiple challenges but the lack of language access is one that really hinders them from fitting in and succeeding in their new environment. At FORA, we bridge this disconnect by providing intensive instruction in reading and math so that our students will be prepared to participate fully in US civic and economic society. In response to the pandemic, we have transitioned to remote instruction, and the difficulties faced by the refugee community in this crisis has led us to expand our services to reach more students. Our ability to take on more students depends on volunteers like you! We are looking for volunteers who want to commit an hour every day for a virtual one-on-one tutoring session with newly arrived refugee students till the end of December. We are looking for dedicated and kind people who are enthusiastic about working with children! We have students from K-12 and we will pair each volunteer with a student that they can tutor and build a relationship with. We have online tutoring tools and experienced tutors who will guide you through the process. High school students are welcome to apply as long as they have an adult willing to supervise them. What these kids need more than anything is someone who believes in them and wants to invest in them. Your presence and an hour of your day can change a kid's life!

In between (virtual) high fives and lots of laughs, these girls will look up to you as a model of what it means to live confidently. You’ve got it. Help them get it too. Girls on the Run relies on volunteers to help us coach our programs. Coaches work directly with 3rd-5th graders or 6th-8th graders, teaching them healthy habits and training them for the big 5K race! Each team typically consists of 2-3 coaches and 8-21 girls (this might be smaller in the fall due to COVID). Our team is working diligently to plan for both in-person and online scenarios. Information on coach requirements and expectations is below: When will teams meet? Teams typically meet twice a week from the week of September 7th through November 9th. Each session is approximately 90 minutes, and most teams meet from about 3:00pm/3:30pm - 4:30pm/5:00pm. Coaches should attend all 20 sessions during the season. If we cannot meet in person, teams will meet virtually. The program we are currently piloting for a virtual session is designed to be 40 minutes long instead of the traditional 90 minutes. As more information about the next school year becomes available, we will work to ensure you are prepared to lead a great team, whether in person or online. The latest programming model will give us the ability to pivot between in-person and online learning as needed. To learn more please email Sophie at sophie.ohaus@girlsontherunrockies.org

  • Tech Not-For-Profit Seeking New Coding/Marketing/Finance Team Members

    We are a not-for-profit social media community at breakdiving.io with one mission: helping our members worldwide find happiness, success, and friendship. NUMBER ONE: We don't bring anyone on board who doesn't first prove to us that he/she loves our mission, and the concept of what we are trying to do. Please don't apply unless you first visit our two main websites: breakdiving.io and breakdiving.org We are a diverse team of volunteers, all of whom do coding, marketing, and finance work for the company. If you are only interested in doing one thing, and only that, we are not the opportunity for you. If you are only interested in getting 'experience' and your reasons for applying are more about you instead of being about wanting to help others, we are not the opportunity for you. However, if you love the idea of truly helping others, learning how to become a better coder/marketer/financier, helping us build and maintain the community (and other websites), and also helping out with marketing and finance issues, you will fit in great here. In other words, while we each have our specialties, we all chip in with coding, marketing, and finance jobs. CODING: We use Ruby on Rails, Javascript, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, jQuery, AJAX, JSON, Actioncable, Redis, PostGreSQL, and Heroku. We are slowly investigating Vue, React, Angular, and AWS (for hosting). MARKETING: We use google ads extensively ($10,000/month stipend), host two different blogs (breakdiving.blog and wyseguidance.org), have a number of social media accounts (twitter.com/breakdiving and youtube.com/breakdiving, among others), and are actively working weekly to improve SEO, new member applications, and media mentions. FINANCE: We are a not for profit, and must annually post our 990. We use Wave Accounting for our weekly bookkeeping. We have an endowment that is slowly growing, plus a scholarship fund, emergency fund, and an operations fund. Everyone on the team helps out to some degree in all departments. No one 'just' codes, 'just' does marketing, or 'just' does finance. However, some end up focusing on one particular area. Thanks very much for your interest. Those who are picked usually join and participate in our community at breakdiving.io while also applying to join the staff.

  • Cat & Kitten Foster Parent

    We are looking for temporary foster homes to build our foster network. Most of the time we cannot commit to taking new cats & kittens that need homes because we have no where to put them before they get adopted. We take care of all the medical expenses, and no training is necessary. We will tell you everything you need to know, and walk you through the whole process. Lots of people get worried they will get "too attached" and the truth is its worth it when you see them in their "furever" home- and knowing they are only alive because of you! Fostering takes place in your own home, so you don't have to go anywhere to volunteer. It just takes minutes a day to make a huge difference: putting food and water out, scooping the litter box and providing a safe environment for companionship. Cats are typically more potty trained compared to dogs and are lower energy. If you work long hours you can still be a foster parent!

NJPC has recently published a data brief - The Incarceration of Children & Youth in New Jersey’s Adult Prison System: New Jersey Youth Justice Initiative - of 472 children and youth, ages 14 to 17, who were waived, sentenced and incarcerated in New Jersey’s adult prison system between 2007 - 2015. NJPC is also interested in having the volunteer help prepare litigations in reference to the brief. The Brief was published nationally and showed:  Gross racial and ethnic disparities: approximately 90% are youth of color; 72% are African American males.  Justice by geography: Rates of incarceration in the adult prison system vary significantly across counties in New Jersey, suggesting that justice depends on where one lives, not on the facts of a given case.  Youth are regularly deprived of due process: Approximately 30% of the 472 youth waived to adult court during the study period spent more than 2 years incarcerated, between their arrest date and their sentencing date, violating their right to a speedy trial.  Youth are regularly put in solitary confinement - especially youth with mental health disorders: Although solitary confinement is known to be psychologically damaging, especially to children, 53% of these youth spent a total of approximately 15,359 days (42 years) in solitary confinement between 2010 and 2015; 5 percent spend over a year there, and about 4 percent spent 2 years or more in solitary. Nearly 70 percent of those placed in solitary had a mental health disorder, with nearly 37% having two or more diagnoses.  Youth suffer abuse while in adult prison: once incarcerated in an adult prison, one in four youth surveyed reported physical abuse; 5% reported sexual abuse. NJPC has also published the first family guide to Navigating the Juvenile Justic: System in New Jersey: A Family GUide which was published nationally.

  • Sew PPE for Eden Area Healthcare Workers and Our Community

    21455 Birch St.Hayward, CA 94541
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    The Eden Area Interfaith Council has gathered volunteers throughout our community to help sew face masks and surgical caps for healthcare workers, homeless shelters, frontline workers and any group in need of protection from the Covid Virus. Since the beginning of the quarantine, we supplied over 3,000 fabric face masks, 700 surgical caps, 100 face shields, and 3,000 hand made, paper, disposable face mask. Though the media reports that the hospitals are receiving more PPE, there is still a big demand for what we are creating. Nurses report to us that they are not consistently receiving the protection they need. Our face mask are designed with a pocket for a HEPA filter and a metal nose wire to shape the mask to the wearer's face. Since they are washable, nurses and other healthcare workers know that they receive a product that can be reused. Our efforts to meet this crisis has been awarded by the East Bay Community Energy Group a $5,000 grant to continue to meet the needs of our community. However, our volunteers have been working since March and fatigue is beginning to set in for some. Some of our seamsters will take a few days or weeks off to rejuvenate. For others, personal needs and economic demands have force them to quit. We need more volunteers who live within the Eden Area (Hayward, Castro Valley, San Leandro, San Lorenzo) , own a sewing machine, have thread and know basic sewing skills. We supply all pre-cut fabric. We deliver supplies in a ziplock bag to your doorstep to adhere to social distancing. The fabic has been heated in a dryer to hopefully remove any contaminates. For your own peace of mind, we suggest you wipe the ziplock down with soap or alcohol. Once you've sewn the PPE, just put the finished work back into the ziplock. Place it on your doorstep. Call us to pick it up. You never need to leave your home. We do ask that you make a commitment of sewing 20 pieces of PPE to make it worth our while to make deliveries and do the return trip for pickup. If you are concerned about having enough skills to work with us, you can view videos on how to sew our PPE designs on our website - edeninterfaith.weebly.com. If you need more assistance, tech support numbers are also found on our site. Please join us in our efforts to keep our frontline workers and the most vulnerable community members safe from the Covid virus.

Make sure you have all your supplies ready, and go out! Don’t forget to let us know how much trash you collected so that we can add it to our total. Remember every single piece count! Follow these 4 steps to have a safe and fun cleanup: 1. Go on our website to sign the online waiver 2. Grab your supplies (bucket, gloves, pick up sticks) 3. Go outside near your home 4. Record the trash you got via the Clean Swell app (or more ways to log the trash on our website) Thank you for caring! Pacific Beach Coalition

  • San Francisco: Artists / Children's Book Illustrators: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis

    SF and vicinitySan Francisco, CA 94108
    Mon, May 11, 2020 - Sun, August 9, 2020

    We are looking for some very special people who have the passion, time, and especially, the illustration skills needed to help us populate our proprietary reading materials child-friendly, colorful, happy, creative and otherwise wonderful drawings that potentially millions of children will see on their path to learning how to read. 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 an 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 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, 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 (the winners of which were announced this past May), which was a worldwide competition for app "design and development" teams from around the world 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 the word "the." Compare this to millions of students who have dropped out of school, primarily because they can't read (more than 10 million per decade). More than 20 million children in grades 3-12 in America's public schools today can't read! Our organization is an 11 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program 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 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 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. The App is comprised of approximately 2,000 unique screens, each of which is fully narrated. 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. As students progress in their reading capability, we begin to introduce primers, books, stories, games, puzzles and other content that will be embedded within the learning modules AND that children will have access to in our "Wonderful Content Library" that is unlocked 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.FUNetix.org and at www.YouthLit.org . We are looking for some very special people who have the passion, time, and especially, the illustration skills needed to help us populate our proprietary reading materials child-friendly, colorful, happy, creative and otherwise wonderful drawings that potentially millions of children will see on their path to learning how to read. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity to be one of volunteer children’s book illustrators, please send us a sample of your artwork by replying to this listing. When you reply you will receive an auto-reply email containing an attached pdf. Follow the instructions on the pdf to illustrate ONLY ONE of the two story samples. (Each sample contains 2 screens, so you will be illustrating 2 screens from the same story.) Send your samples to info@FUNetix.org and we will respond to you if we choose your illustration. EVEN IF we don’t choose you to illustrate one of the sample stories, we may still contact you to illustrate one of our many other stories or books. We are looking for intelligent, creative, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals who can present a "look and feel" to children ages 5-9 that is happy, not scary; uplifting, not sad; bright and colorful, not dark or ominous; cute or whimsical, or otherwise conveying a positive outlook on the world. Thank you! We hope this opportunity finds you at the right place and the right time 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 through literacy. We look forward to seeing your work. All ages are welcome to contribute! Mr. R. Kali Woodward Founding, Executive Director

  • San Francisco, Ca and vicinity: Home Schooling Just Got Better

    San Francisco and vicinitySan Francisco, CA 94108
    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

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 a web app firm that was one of the five $1 million finalists in the XPrize for Global Learning competition (the winners of which were announced this past May), which was a worldwide competition for app "design and development" teams from around the world 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).

More than 20 million children in grades 3-12 in America's public schools today can't read! They are either completely, or "functionally" illiterate. Our organization is a 12 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program 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 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 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. 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! 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 interstitial spaces of American society. The UX must be tested and must be proven 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, and without hope. That support network for caring adults will consist of in-app information as well as web-based content that they can refer to to gain a better understanding of what the app is and how it works and how they can best assist their child through the learning process. 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 decided 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 five 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 (a 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. As for our Engineering team, we are looking for 3 very special people who have everything we mentioned above, passion, expertise, time, etc. to join our team and help us launch this app this Thanksgiving, 2020. Our three Engineering Team Leads will help coordinate the delivery of the app to the App Store and Google Play and will work closely with our NY-based engineering partner to ensure usability and compatibility with a variety of iOS devices. The ideal candidate will have the following software programming skills: Understanding of object-oriented software development Record of completed applications Ability to write modular, documented code Ability to manage multi-system complexity Knowledge of relational and non-relational databases (including distributed service-oriented architecture and in-memory caching) Deep troubleshooting and research skills Solid, non-delayed communication skills Ability to analyze issues and generate problem solving solutions Education and Experience Requirements: Secondary degree or certificate in computer science, or two to three years of software development experience Proven experience with object oriented and/or functional programming Familiarity with modern HTML standards, JavaScript/Node.js, and stylesheets Experience with Agile software management methods. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity to be one of the three leads for our Engineering Team, please send us a cover letter and resume to HR@YouthLit.org. We are looking for intelligent, creative, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals with significant real world experience. 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. 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.

  • DELIVER MEALS TO PEOPLE FACING FOOD INSECURITY

    1525 Waller StSan Francisco, CA 94115
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    In compliance with social distancing guidelines, volunteers must come in pairs with a person from their household. These deliveries cannot be done alone. Importance: Food insecurity is always a prevalent concern for people living in Episcopal Community Services’ supportive housing sites, but during the COVID-19 crisis, the need for nutritious meals is exacerbated. Throughout our residential buildings, seniors and people with compromised immune systems constitute more than half of the residents, and to ensure their safety, they must stay inside. Providing meals for them at home is critical. Dependable volunteers are crucial to ensure our residents don’t have to decide between accessing meals outside of their homes and protecting themselves from chance of COVID-19 infection. Description: Volunteers will pick up meals from the SF Food Runners kitchen once a week and deliver them to three ECS supportive housing sites in SOMA or the Tenderloin. These are curbside drop offs-there will be no contact with the residents. Need equipment: Volunteers must have a valid driver’s license, insurance, and a truck, van, or vehicle capable of shuttling 300 individually packaged meals. Volunteers must wear a face mask and gloves. Dollies and hand trucks are useful, but not required. Needed skills: Volunteers should enjoy a commitment to battling food insecurity, have excellent attention to detail and respect deadlines and commitments. Reporting Requirements: Volunteers are expected to sign into their shifts when they are onsite at the commercial kitchen and report to the Volunteer Coordinator via email once a week after their deliveries are completed. Please reach out to the Volunteer and Events Coordinator, Emily San Nicolas, esannicolas@ecs-sf.org for more information. Thank you!

  • Help nature, get exercise while you shelter

    Berkeley, Albany, Kensington, El Cerrito,Albany, CA 94706
    Fri, April 17, 2020 - Tue, June 30, 2020

    While we shelter in place to avoid spreading COVID-19, it's important for mental and physical health of all ages to get outdoors, get exercise, and enjoy nature. You can help the environment and feel connected and productive at the same time! IF YOU KNOW PLANTS, you can pull weeds or map invasives with your cell phone as part of a walk, while keeping safe social distance. For ideas on how and where, contact Friends of Five Creeks, f5creeks@gmail.com. YOU CAN GET TO KNOW NATIVE WILD PLANTS AND ANIMALS WHILE HELPING SCIENCE using the iNaturalist cell-phone app. A kid-friendly companion app, Seek, makes this great for families. You can do this in your own neighborhood or yard -- even in your house! Online instructions are good, but if you want help or tips, contact Friends of Five Creeks, f5creeks@gmail.com. Mapping along Codornices or Cerrito Creek, on Albany Hill, on the Albany Bulb, and in the El Cerrito Hillside Natural Area helps special projects aimed at documenting what lives in those urban natural areas. YOU CAN PICK UP TRASH, IF YOU HAVE GLOVES, BAGS, AND A PICK-UP STICK (available at hardware stores). Of course, use common sense. Don't pick up anything sharp or disgusting. Kids must be supervised -- but many children love this. The coronavirus crisis has greatly decreased litter -- when this is over, let's keep it this way! REMEMBER TO KEEP SAFE SOCIAL DISTANCES! Pick uncrowded places; try mornings rather than afternoons. See handouts on lesser-known creekside walks and green areas at fivecreeks.org.

    NEXT Village SF is helping seniors in northeast San Francisco and we need MORE HELP, please!

NEXT Village needs more volunteer drivers for a 3 x week, 1 x day food delivery program in the North Beach area for low income seniors during shelter in place. You can volunteer for a delivery run once or twice a week. NEXT Village SF has recruited a large number of younger neighbors, some with cars, are going grocery shopping, delivering prescriptions and running other errands that are important to people who are in the high-risk categories. These volunteers undergo a criminal background check and are briefed on best practices for safety during this virus. They are instructed to coordinate by phone and email with people who request their help, and to leave packages outside their doors or an equivalent arrangement. Seniors can reimburse the volunteers by PayPal or Venmo, or cash or check in an envelope if they are not on those apps. NEXT also has a telephone buddy system and volunteers are calling all members regularly to check on their well-being. Finally, NEXT needs more technology/Zoom volunteers to answer computer questions and teach seniors how to use Zoom for the new online event opportunities and to stay connected with loved ones during this time. If you would like to volunteer, please go to nextvillagesf.org, click on the Volunteer tab, fill out the interest form. It will go directly to the executive director’s email. Please print and scan the disclosure form and send to rachel@nextvillagesf.org or call us at (415) 888-2868 to meet in person.

    Open Door Legal is pioneering the country’s first system of universal access to civil representation and working to show that when everyone has access to the law, poverty can be dramatically reduced. We won the 2015 Google Impact Challenge and we’ve been recognized by the Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation for our innovative, results-oriented program. Long-term, we plan to replicate our services across San Francisco, make this city the first in the country with universal access to civil representation, and become a model for national replication. We’re only going to achieve this if we continue our tradition of hiring the best possible people. Our team is extremely passionate, quixotic, energetic, loves tackling tough problems, and believes in continuous personal growth. We believe injustice is the heart of poverty and we invite you to join us in having a systemic impact on how we, as a society, ensure justice for the poor. *** As we've expanded to meet the needs of the community, more and more Spanish-speaking clients are coming to us for help. Our main priority is not turning anyone away and effectively addressing all their civil legal needs. But our current translators and interpreters are overbooked and we need volunteers to help us with triaging at the front desk.

Writing text, gathering existing images for website and for printable creek guide In some cases, we are walking/biking the creeks to take pictures to create online maps with points of interest for those unable to currently get out into the watersheds (or who aren't local). Supporting the live-streaming creek walking with a naturalist events that we're doing in various watersheds These tours will be so useful to folks stuck at home, and also for those who live nearby who may be able to safely walk sections of the creeks. In the long run, when we're able to do the creek walks in public We're looking for 2-3 volunteers that are capable researchers, visually creative, can take initiative, good team communicator, and enjoy themselves as they work. There are a lot of moving pieces so you need to be organized. Loving creek ecology isn't a bad add-on.
