  • Web Designer for Television-Based Education

    ep5 is a §501(c)(3) charitable foundation producing educational programming for public television and radio. This is provided at no charge to public broadcasting stations and other venues. VOLUNTEER IN WEB DESIGN The ep5 Educational Broadcasting Foundation needs an experienced and imaginative website designer who can distill our ancient and positively prehistoric existing website into a much smaller and striking contemporary exercise in effective communication. We're a not-for-profit producer of educational content for public broadcasting, including radio and television documentaries and an informational science series. Our current website, which has temporarily been taken down for overhaul, is heavy on detail but pretty light on visual appeal. We know what we'd like to communicate, but we simply don't have the talent in-house for making it happen. Our organization's objective is the production of genuinely educational television aimed at those under-served by existing resources. For instance, one proposed television series would enable young people without hope of access to college to learn software development in a major programming language as a vocational skill. We need a web presence which will explain whom we are and what we do . . . and accomplish this clearly and efficiently. The resources required by the new website should be limited to HTML5 and CSS3. Ideally, we prefer simple elegance and visual clarity over flashy web-page gimmickry. Please note that this volunteer work is strictly non-commercial. This position is for someone who has done web design and can show us examples of original work; we do not seek someone learning the ropes and having little experience. We can provide several third-party websites as examples of the style, look, and feel that we would like for our own, although the volunteer who remakes our website will have ample creative freedom. This opportunity complies fully with anti-pandemic practices.

    As coronavirus spreads across the globe, state and local governments are banning large events, and companies are playing their part in encouraging or mandating that all employees who can work from home, to stem the tide of the virus. One unfortunate side effect of this is that companies are having to cancel or postpone volunteer engagements with groups they often supported in person. PCV’s BusinessAdvising.org platform enables individuals (and whole companies) to volunteer 100% remotely - you can volunteer on the phone, over Facetime and video chat, or even on email. If you have expertise in finance, HR, marketing, and other areas that are specifically helpful to serve as a thought partner with small business owners suddenly facing a challenging economic environment, your skills are especially needed now. Small businesses that work with a volunteer advisor through PCV’s BusinessAdvising.org platform grow their revenues by 20% on average, and create jobs for working people at ten times the national rate. Consider this easy and engaging way to volunteer-because chances are, remote volunteering will enable you to volunteer more often. And really, what’s better than that? If your you're is interested in finding ways to support small businesses across the U.S. with free advising and business coaching in these difficult months, contact us today! You might be thinking, "Who has time to volunteer?" But the truth is, it only takes less than 5 hours a month to make a big difference in someone else’s life. Don’t worry if you’ve never worked for or run your own small business. Our team will match you with the right small business based on what you can contribute. How does it work? Create Your Profile: Take 10 minutes to tell us about your career experience, skills, and other areas of expertise.

Teachers and schools need all the help they can to anticipate these new levels of violence.

Volunteers with historical, psychological, sociological, ethnographic and behavioural science research experience are encouraged to respond. We look forward to working with you!

    We are an education project to help the Children study English with Volunteers from many countries. The project aimed at creating opportunities to learn English with English speaking teachers to Kids who are from low income families and low paid workers in rural areas of Vietname, that are unable to afford English courses in other English Centers with High tuition fees. Through learning English with English speaking teachers, Vietnamese people will be equipped with English skills that help them to grasp better job opportunities in their future. Because of the Covid -19, We had to run my project by teaching English online. That is the reason We are looking for some virtual Volunteers. And through teaching English online We can help some students who live far from our place. They can join online classes and study English. Please make sure that when you apply my project, you can join and help us. Because sometime, there are some Volunteers apply and when the classes start we can not find the teacher, that is not fair for Kids. We also have all the reading and learning material for the kids which volunteers will use to help teach. before the class start, we will send the materials and lesson plan to them by email...Each class will have an assistant to help the Volunteers to control the students

  • Volunteer and Support Black- and Brown-Owned Small Business

    Small businesses have been hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, and small businesses owned by people of color, immigrants, and Native Americans are bearing the brunt of it. Since March, demand for volunteer business advisors from Pacific Community Ventures has surged more than 400% year-over-year, and we need your help to meet this need! If you have expertise in finance, HR, operations, marketing, and other areas that small business owners are suddenly facing challenges in, your skills are especially needed now. Volunteering with PCVs is the best kind of volunteering: it is 100% remote, leverages the skills you already have, and has a big impact for small businesses and the communities they serve. (Small businesses working with a us grow their revenues by 20% on average and create jobs for working people at ten times the national rate.) It only takes 4-5 hours per month, and you can really make a difference. Don’t worry if you’ve never worked for or run your own small business. Our team will match you with the right small business based on what you can contribute. How does it work? Create Your Profile: Take 10 minutes to tell us about your career experience, skills, and other areas of expertise. Get Paired: We’ll propose matches, but the final decision on who you mentor is up to you. Start Connecting: We’ll provide some structure and guidance to get you started. Pacific Community Ventures is working to close what’s called "the advice gap" for women and entrepreneurs of color. Women of color account for 89% (1,625) of the new businesses opened every day over the past year before COVID. African-American women are 300% more likely to launch a new business than a white person, and Latinas are 180% more likely - but both groups are also more likely to fail. Part of the reason? Many female entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs of color, and Indigenous and immigrant business entrepreneurs say they lack access to advisors and networks that could help their businesses thrive. This puts these job-creating entrepreneurs at a disadvantage. Given the disproportionate impact that COVID has had on Black and Brown small business owners, their need for capital and expert advice remains high, especially now as they start to re-open while prioritizing employee health and safety alongside business health. We at PCV don’t want to go back to "normal" -- we want and need to build back better.

  • Help Soldiers in Harm's Way from your home through virtual volunteering

    A Plea for Letters of Gratitude for Soldier’s in Harm’s way Make a difference from the comfort of your own home. Help with COVID-19 from your home through virtual volunteering. This message from Packages4Patriots is a suggestion for a way you can help during these difficult times. If you have extra time on your hands and would like to give back to your community before life resumes to normal please consider taking the time to write a letter to a soldier in harm’s-way today. If you are home with children who are bored, this is a project they too could help with creating paintings and drawings. Packages4Patriots strives to include personal letters in every care package that we send. These letters and drawings ensure that a Soldier, Sailor, Marine or Airman knows that you are thinking of them. It will only take 5 minutes out of your day to write a letter, but it will bring joy to our troops that will last a lifetime. Sadly, most months we do not have enough letters and drawings for every care package. Here is some help to get started: CHILDREN AND ADULTS Letters: I write about everything. I include sketches and photos and poems and stories, quotes from what is going on around me and maybe some lyrics from a song. A puzzle, a quiz, a riddle. Kid’s Art: Don’t ask them to draw anything specific. Just collect them; A common favorite drawing is stick figures of your family and pets in front of your house. WHAT TO WRITE ABOUT Keep your message upbeat and positive Be thankful ~~ share a little bit of yourself Ask questions; however, do not discuss death or killing Avoid politics completely and religion in excess It’s all about appreciation and respect Ask yourself: "Will this letter bring a smile to someone’s face?" HOW TO GET YOUR LETTERS AND DRAWINGS TO US You can drop donations off during the day at The Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit. The church office hours are Monday-Friday from 9am-2pm Phone: 847-437-5897 You can also mail to Packages 4 Patriots at The Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit, 150 Lions Drive, Elk Grove Village, IL 60007 NEVER FORGET! Donations for postage is the lifeblood of this mission. Please LIKE us on Facebook.

  • Help us Create and Deliver Financial Literacy Tool-kits for Rebuilding Small Businesses

    Meet our client, Stella. Stella designs and sells toys in Brooklyn. Before the pandemic, her revenues were good, she made decent profits. But the lockdown changed everything. Her store was closed. Her business revenues were low. She used most of her savings to pay her store’s rent. Like the majority of minority and women-owned businesses, she too had failed to receive the Payment Protection Program (PPP) loan through a mainstream bank or credit union in the first round. When the government announced the second round of disaster-related funding, she called us for technical assistance support. We walked her through the application process, and she managed to receive a $12,000 PPP loan. We provided technical assistance support to so many women like Stella. In total, the women we have assisted so far have secured close to 2 million PPP and EIDL loans. Nonetheless, that experience made us witness the gender funding gap. First, nearly a quarter of our clients that needed funding critical to stay open never even had a shot at a PPP loan. Our clients were not discriminated against during the application process. They were, however, passed over in several significant ways throughout the process that left them unable to take full advantage of the PPP. Second, we observed that women small business owners were not financially savvy, raising concerns over the level of financial literacy. We noted that women-owned businesses asked for and received less money. Many did not understand the eligibility criteria for the loan. Many were scared of being rejected due to lack of paperwork. The PPP loan process was just one of many examples of the gender funding gap. In the post-COVID-19 economy, our market niche, women from urban communities, continues to have a high need for access to credit and business services to rebuild their businesses. Yet, women continue to face obstacles that prevent them from getting business loans and reaching their full entrepreneurial potential. In February 2021, we launched an initiative (we call it "Coffee & Conversation") with a simple objective - "Get women entrepreneurs ready with the required financial reports and business plan so they can access the credit." Twice a month, a small group of women entrepreneurs and thought leaders meet in a virtual platform for a candid 60-minute group conversation around a central topic related to financial literacy, business development, accessing loans, digital marketing and more. We need volunteers in two areas: 1)Expertise - One who can facilitate and lead the discussion in one or more of the topics below. 2) Designers- Who can help us finalize the content by editing and designing each toolkit using PowerPoint or CANVA software. We plan to make our toolkits available on our website. Some of our most-preferred topics based on our in-house survey are Managing Cash Flows and Preparing Financial Statements Sales Forecasting and Budgeting Pricing Strategies for a Strong Bottomline Agility for Small Businesses and Pivoting Business Continuity and Disaster Planning Risk Management and Business Insurance Investment Strategies Digital Marketing Technology in Small Businesses

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.

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. E ach person can go upstream of their mental health challenges and adopt healthier coping mechanisms. 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. See this brief video about Micro-leadership at CrowdDoing ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhdB2YJ8Ocs&app=desktop ).

  • Communications specialist to help bridge the digital divide

    IEEE is a renowned engineering organization that is known for setting technical standards. Yet as a nonprofit organization, we have a mission to help humanity. As part of a broader effort to set standards for Future Networks, we are keen to make networks work for the portion of humanity that does not have access to the internet or does not use it. The importance of bridging the digital divide has never been greater; under COVID, it has meant that more people without access are suffering from the lack of livelihood, to the lack of education. IEEE is therefore organizing a "connect the unconnected" competition to promote innovation and reward those who have unique solutions to address the problem. Our intention is to launch a competition in June, and a summit to provide awards in October/November. We have excellent engineers on staff and as volunteers supporting this initiative. What we lack is someone on the communications/publicity side who can help us get the word out about this effort. We are looking for advice on how to do this effectively as well as someone who can put this in motion.

Recovery mentors must be over 18 years of age, and based in the United States. Visit anad.org/volunteer/opportunities/recovery-mentor/ to apply.

  • San Francisco: Help us Launch the FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App as a Funding Team Lead

    San Francisco and vicinitySan Francisco, CA 94108
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    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 by COVID-19, to help close the opportunity gap in America, by closing the education gap, by closing the literacy gap that looms large, like an impassable crevasse, separating the haves from the have-nots, the rich, the almost rich, the upper middle class, even the middle class, from the more than 100 million lower class, lower middle class, working class poor, impoverished and underprivileged Americans. We are looking for a few very special people, with funding and business development experience, either in the corporate or non-profit arena, either as an entrepreneur or upper tier management, preferably in the technology sphere, 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 viable, potential reality. What we are talking about is an adaptive learning, gamified smartphone app, called FUNetix (www.FUNetix.org), that can teach children how to read, in their own home, in an average of just 12 hours of total instruction time! We are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for 12 years using a patented "reading decoding system!" We have been developing this app for about two years (but started concepting and working on prototypes almost five years ago); and this year we will launch this incredible smartphone app in the App Store and on Google Play at or around 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 only semi-literate skills at best. And now with the displacement of 55 million children from school, for an indeterminate amount of time, the loss of reading capacity of the next generation, and the "seemingly incessant," "widening of the gap," presents a new "crisis moment" in American education, and a very real threat to the future success (in school, and in life) of millions of young children. But we believe there IS a way to bridge that gap, to make this a "watershed moment" instead of a crisis moment , by stopping that gap from widening. Universal access to literacy through FUNetix will close the opportunity gap by closing the education gap by closing the literacy gap to near zero. What happens after that, can only be imagined: a virtuous cycle of communication and learning, perhaps, between teachers and students, in ALL of America’s schools and classrooms. And what happens after that? An entire generation of nearly 100% literate young people of all races, religions, creeds, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds will, quite inevitably, reform the social fabric of the American landscape for the good, and for the benefit of innumerable generations to come. According to the U.S. Government’s "Annual Report Card," more than 20 million children in grades 3-12, in America's public schools today, can't read at anything close to a proficient level! Translated into "English," that means they are either completely illiterate ("Below Basic:" 24%), or functionally illiterate/ semi-literate ("Basic:" 43%). Fully more than half of all America’s public-school-educated children have between zero and minimal literacy skills. This travesty exists in spite of the fact that, as a nation, we spend more than $11,000 per year, per student, to deliver a public school "education." Just over 24% of all students drop out of public school, most of them in 9th grade. That's 1 million per year! Since the year 2000, we have "graduated" more than 20 million illiterate "students" into the U.S. economy, into our socio-economic and socio-political marketplace of ideas without hope and without basic survival skills. Without literacy, and without education, these young people have no chance at fulfilling their personal potential; and economic security is simply unattainable. That’s all about to change! 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 in May, 2019) named Pubbly (www.Pubbly.com). The XPrize for Global Learning was a $15 million worldwide competition created to allow app "design and development" teams from around the world to build and deliver a tablet-based app to children in remote villages in Africa, that could teach them how to read and do basic math (children of all ages, most of whom had never been to school before in their lives). The XPrize was founded by Peter Diamandis and is credited with launching the commercial space industry, including SpaceX, with the original XPrize of $10 million, created to incent teams from around the world to build a rocket that could reach low earth orbit without help from NASA or any governmental space agency or nation state; and SpaceX's founder, Elon Musk is a key benefactor and contributor to XPrize, and a close personal friend of Peter Diamandis, who, in addition to being the founder of XPrize, is also the founder of Singularity University, among other entities. Pubbly competed in the 2015-2019 XPrize for Global Literacy; and the American Youth Literacy Foundation, ( www.YouthLit.org ) dba FUNetix, FUNetix.org and the FUNetix Reading App, competed in the 2015-2020 XPrize for Adult Literacy. FUNetix and Pubbly met through our mutual participation in XPrize; and XPrize specifically encourages open source, collaborative cooperation and sharing of assets among all of its competitors. The goal is to improve the world, solve global, intractable problems, and share information and ideas to make humanity and human lives better! As an offspring of two, separate XPrize competitions, FUNetix is a perfect example of collaborative partnering between teams of people originally brought together to begin exploring an advanced technological solution to global illiteracy and global educational challenges. The American Youth Literacy Foundation, dba FUNetix, is a 12 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 (c) (3) non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program in the regional Philadelphia, Central New Jersey area and we still provide some 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 incredibly powerful, and ubiquitously critical tool (currently estimated at 80%), even into the most impoverished communities in America, we realized several years ago, that the answer to scalability we had been searching for, was going to be 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 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 reading-learning system, (which includes a FUN, but intensive introduction to all 44 sounds of the English language, and the basic concept of blending sound symbols into words), and another 4-6 hours for them to reach a 2nd grade reading level! Compare this to so many of our students who, as discussed above, have been in the public school system for 6, 7, 8, 9 years or more, and are still unable to spell simple words like "this, that, these, those and 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). Our organization is an "all volunteer," mission-centric, extended virtual network, comprised of more than fifty, highly skilled and experienced individuals from around the country (and a few from around the world) who collaborate through cloud-based technology and platforms. The app consists of more than 2,000 screens, each individually narrated to most closely simulate a true one-on-one tutoring experience, which has been our hallmark for 12 years. Our five graphic designers, six curriculum content developers, six engineers and all of our support teams, including project management, curriculum management, and UX/Beta testing, along with our production and engineering partner, Pubbly, have built more than 1,200 screens since March; and we are slated to complete the 2,000+ buildout by mid August. On, or about, Thanksgiving, 2020, we will deliver this incredible reading app to the App Store and Google Play, and with it, 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, where illiteracy is endemic and education and opportunity are, tragically, not universally attainable. FUNetix is real, and tangible, and life changing; and unlike so many other discussions, conversations, policies, programs and protocols, AND, unlike so many other legacy (and even brand new) reading apps, reading programs and reading curricula based on legacy phonics pedagogy, (which doesn't scale, isn't amenable to self learning and doesn't teach children how to read in 120 hours, let along 12 hours), FUNetix will make a profound impact on millions of individual lives, while also profoundly effecting major social improvement on a massive scale, to bring about real, sustainable change in underprivileged and fully privileged communities and classrooms alike, wherever illiteracy and poor literacy looms. Literacy as a path to education and opportunity for millions of American children, and potentially billions of children worldwide, is imminently near. Through FUNetix, the American Youth Literacy Foundation is making English accessible to everyone! We have been preparing for this moment for 12 years, but as a matter of pure coincidence, our launch and final developmental timeline is coinciding with other powerful forces in the country and the world, such as COVID and social justice awareness and unrest. Our role in the Coronavirus recovery and this social justice enigma, is to lift up and bring real, lasting, permanent life improvement to the more than 12 million 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade emerging readers who got knocked down by the Corona virus and knocked out of school, as so much collateral damage, so that they can get back to learning and education, in a new way, with better results than ever before, as if nothing had ever happened to derail their futures. Our role in effecting major social improvement, including improvement in areas of education, opportunity and equality has been at the forefront of our mission and vision since our inception as a charitable foundation in 2008. The convergence of universal forces that is allowing the FUNetix Reading App to fall on such fertile soil is something that we cannot explain. But in order to deliver this incredible app to the children who need it most, we still need to complete three pieces of the equation: what we call "The Horse," "The Cart," and "The Payload." The Horse is the curriculum; and we are more than halfway through the conversion process from our analog to a new, super fun, super interactive, digital curriculum for kids. 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. We need to market, publicize and reach out to communities to make them aware of your creation, even if it's FREE, like FUNetix! For that, we have built our in-house Community Outreach and Distribution Team; and they are, in turn, building a network of Community Outreach Liaisons nationwide, as well as reaching out to community leaders, social media influencers, thought leaders, religious leaders, political leaders, sports and entertainment influencers and others, in order to find the best and most efficient pathways to deliver the message to the parents that literacy is within reach, and to ensure that the FUNetix Reading App gets into the hands of the children who need it most. And the Payload is the UX itself (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 multifarious interstitial spaces of American society, wherever children are in need. We are creating that support network for caring adults, which will consist of in-app information as well as web-based content that they can refer to, in order to gain a better understanding of what the app is and how it works, and how they can best assist their child or grandchild through the learning process. In addition, all of our external communications will be supported and cross connected through our website and via a variety of social media outlets. Our brand, image, content and messaging has been, and will continue to be, a collaboration between our Graphic Design, UX, Marketing and Communications, Web Development, Curriculum Content, Funding and Community Outreach teams. As we mentioned, the curriculum consists of more than 2,000, individually narrated screens. We first teach children the 44 sounds of the English language. Then we teach them how to "map," or, associate symbols to each of these sounds. We teach them how to blend those sound symbols and those sounds together to make words and sentences and, ultimately, stories. It usually takes them only 4 hours to learn how to read our super child-friendly, phonetic English code called 21E. Over the next 4 hours, children learn how to use those sound symbols as a "diacritic" pronunciation guide to help them decode ANY English word. We call this the FUNetix Magic Decoder, because it works like magic: the magic symbols above the words reveal the hidden sounds of EVERY English word! Like training wheels on a bike, children use the Magic Decoder to practice, practice, practice reading for the final four hours of the app, until the training wheels are ready to come off. Then they graduate, and are introduced into the Wonderful Content Library, where they can read all kinds of stories, books and poems, and play puzzles and games, and go on treasure hunts and virtual scavenger hunts using the newly developed reading skills that they now have. And on every screen in the Wonderful Content Library, kids have the FUNetix Magic Hat button with them, so that if they ever come across a word they've never seen before, or that they forgot how to decode, they can push the button and see the FUNetix Magic Code, and don’t have to stop and ask a grown up or a sibling, and so that they can continue on, and keep up the momentum and the pace of reading, without getting distracted, or side tracked or frustrated, or, worse yet, give up! FUNetix, the team, is a mission-focused, distributed network of currently, 48 people (and still growing), each contributing between 5 and 65 hours of volunteer time per week. Our partnership with Pubbly is contractual, and we pay for engineering, coding, animation, narration and other services. The FUNetix organization is organized into 12 teams including Project Management, Graphic Design, Curriculum Development, UX/Beta Testing, Engineering, Community Outreach and Distribution, Web Development, Funding, Marketing, Communications and Public Relations, and others. There's much more to tell. You can read more about our story, and about us, at www.FUNetix.org and www.YouthLit.org. We have much more to do to get ready for our Thanksgiving launch! As for our Business Development/Funding Team Leads, we have 2 openings left (all of our teams have 3 team leads and sometimes, additional, task specific, team members). So, we are now looking for two, very special people, who have everything we mentioned above: passion, expertise, time, etc., to join our team and help us launch the FUNetix Reading App this fall. Our Funding Team Leads will help us explore, develop, plan and execute a broad set of funding initiatives to include: Grant Writing, Philanthropic Donations, Crowdsourcing, Sponsorships, Fundraising Events, Licensing and other forms of App Monetization. The ideal candidate will have a broad, deep and sophisticated understanding of sales, marketing, technology and funding, derived from multiple years of experience, either as an entrepreneur, corporate executive, or non-profit director or board member. The Team Lead may have grant writing or crowdsourcing experience, but these specialties will also be sourced, and additional team members will be hired to meet the needs of the organization in terms of fundraising for operational (engineering, coding, Pubbly) costs, as well as marketing, distribution, expansion and ongoing initiatives to deliver the app broadly and quickly into disparate communities across America. Ultimately, our mission is to get the app, and via the app, literacy, out to the children who need it most. Thanksgiving, in many ways, will be more of a beginning than an end. It will be the beginning of a tireless effort to deliver the solution to the streets and homes and schools of America where children are trying, but endlessly failing at learning how to read. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity, please send us a cover letter and resume to HR@YouthLit.org. We are looking for intelligent, creative, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals, who have the time, energy, expertise and desire to make a true difference and be part of something amazing!

  • San Francisco, CA: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis as a Crowdsourcing Expert

    SF and vicinitySan Francisco, CA 94108
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    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 by COVID-19, to help close the opportunity gap in America, by closing the education gap, by closing the literacy gap that looms large, like an impassable crevasse, separating the haves from the have-nots, the rich, the almost rich, the upper middle class, even the middle class, from the more than 100 million lower class, lower middle class, working class poor, impoverished and underprivileged Americans. We are looking for a few very special people, with fundraising, particularly, crowdsourcing expertise, either in the corporate or non-profit arena, 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 viable, potential reality. What we are talking about is an adaptive learning, gamified smartphone app, called FUNetix (www.FUNetix.org), that can teach children how to read, in their own home, in an average of just 12 hours of total instruction time! We are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for 12 years using a patented "reading decoding system!" We have been developing this app for about two years (but started concepting and working on prototypes almost five years ago); and this year we will launch this incredible smartphone app in the App Store and on Google Play at or around 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 only semi-literate skills at best. And now with the displacement of 55 million children from school, for an indeterminate amount of time, the loss of reading capacity of the next generation, and the "seemingly incessant," "widening of the gap," presents a new "crisis moment" in American education, and a very real threat to the future success (in school, and in life) of millions of young children. But we believe there IS a way to bridge that gap, to make this a "watershed moment" instead of a crisis moment, by stopping that gap from widening. Universal access to literacy through FUNetix will close the opportunity gap by closing the education gap by closing the literacy gap to near zero. What happens after that, can only be imagined: a virtuous cycle of communication and learning, perhaps, between teachers and students, in ALL of America’s schools and classrooms. And what happens after that? An entire generation of nearly 100% literate young people of all races, religions, creeds, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds will, quite inevitably, reform the social fabric of the American landscape for the good, and for the benefit of innumerable generations to come. According to the U.S. Government’s "Annual Report Card," more than 20 million children in grades 3-12, in America's public schools today, can't read at anything close to a proficient level! Translated into "English," that means they are either completely illiterate ("Below Basic:" 24%), or functionally illiterate/ semi-literate ("Basic:" 43%). Fully more than half of all America’s public-school-educated children have between zero and minimal literacy skills. This travesty exists in spite of the fact that, as a nation, we spend more than $11,000 per year, per student, to deliver a public school "education." Just over 24% of all students drop out of public school, most of them in 9th grade. That's 1 million per year! Since the year 2000, America has "graduated" more than 20 million illiterate "students" into the U.S. economy, into our socio-economic and socio-political marketplace of ideas without hope, and without basic survival skills. Without literacy, and without education, these young people have practically zero chance at fulfilling their personal potential; and economic security is simply unattainable. That’s all about to change! The American Youth Literacy Foundation, dba FUNetix, is a 12 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 (c) (3) non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program in the regional Philadelphia, Central New Jersey area and we still provide some 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 incredibly powerful, and ubiquitously critical tool (currently estimated at 80%), even into the most impoverished communities in America, we realized several years ago, that the answer to scalability we had been searching for, was going to be 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 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 reading-learning system, (which includes a FUN, but intensive introduction to all 44 sounds of the English language, and the basic concept of blending sound symbols into words), and another 4-6 hours for them to reach a 2nd grade reading level! On, or about, Thanksgiving, 2020, we will deliver this incredible reading app to the App Store and Google Play, and with it, 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, where illiteracy is endemic and education and opportunity are, tragically, not universally attainable. FUNetix will make a profound impact on millions of individual lives, while also profoundly effecting major social improvement on a massive scale, to bring about real, sustainable change in underprivileged and fully privileged communities and classrooms alike, wherever illiteracy and poor literacy looms. Literacy as a path to education and opportunity for millions of American children, and potentially billions of children worldwide, is imminently near. Through FUNetix, the American Youth Literacy Foundation is making English accessible to everyone! The curriculum consists of more than 2,000, individually narrated screens. We first teach children the 44 sounds of the English language. Then we teach them how to "map," or, associate symbols to each of these sounds. We teach them how to blend those sound symbols and those sounds together to make words and sentences and, ultimately, stories. It usually takes them only 4 hours to learn how to read our super child-friendly, phonetic English code called 21E. Over the next 4 hours, children learn how to use those sound symbols as a "diacritic" pronunciation guide to help them decode ANY English word. We call this the FUNetix Magic Decoder, because it works like magic: the magic symbols above the words reveal the hidden sounds of EVERY English word! FUNetix, the team, is a mission-focused, distributed network of currently, 51 people (and still growing), each contributing between 5 and 65 hours of volunteer time per week. The FUNetix organization is organized into 12 teams including Project Management, Graphic Design, Curriculum Development, UX/Beta Testing, Engineering, Community Outreach and Distribution, Web Development, Funding, Marketing, Communications and Public Relations, and others. There's much more to tell. You can read more about our story, and about us, at www.FUNetix.org and www.YouthLit.org. We have much more to do to get ready for our Thanksgiving launch! As for our Crowdsourcing Experts, we are looking for three, very special people, who have everything we mentioned above: passion, expertise, time, etc., to join our team and help us launch the FUNetix Reading App this fall. The ideal candidate will have a broad, deep and sophisticated understanding of, and experience in, raising money through social media and crowdsourcing sites like Kickstarter and GoFundMe, among others. Ultimately, our mission is to get the app, and via the app, literacy, out to the children who need it most; and for that, we still require significant funding to finish the app and implement our initial marketing and distribution strategy. We believe that with the right messaging, we will find potentially tens of thousands of people willing to help with this incredible cause and this incredible effort, by contributing small amounts. Our current needs for finishing the app and executing our marketing and distribution strategy fall between $100K and $200k; so this is not an insignificant amount. But the goal is to utilize this second round of funding to allow us to develop additional revenue streams that will take us forward into the future and allow us to continue to bring the, absolutely FREE, FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App to millions of children both in the U.S., and around the world. in many ways, our Thanksgiving launch will be more of a beginning than an end. It will be the beginning of a tireless effort to deliver the solution to the streets and homes and schools of America where children are trying, but endlessly failing at learning how to read. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity, please send us a cover letter and resume to HR@YouthLit.org, and tell us about your crowdsourcing and fundraising experience. We are looking for intelligent, creative, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals, who have the time, energy, expertise and desire to make a true difference and be part of something amazing! This is a complex undertaking and we are looking for highly proficient and organized professionals. Individuals interested in this position must have the experience and ability to work in a virtual environment using select networking, file sharing, and communications tools and platforms, and must have extensive knowledge and experience in crowdsourcing websites and campaigns. 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, to add value, in an amazing way, to help 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.

    Our goal is to get as many Earth Heroes as possible to cleanup a location of their liking and inspiring others, while staying safe and respecting County and State orders. What are the "Street to Beach" cleanups? Simply put, it is a cleanup by yourself or with family and/or housemates with whom you have been sheltering in place. It can be around your neighborhood, at the beach, in a needy area, or anywhere actually. You could even "adopt" a specific location in need and care for it on a regular basis. Please Note: If you do a cleanup, you are doing it on your own accord and personally accepting any and all risks. Why should we do this? Neighborhood and street cleanups are fun and rewarding outdoor activities for you and your family or your other quarantine partners. Picking up litter from the streets keeps it from flowing into the ocean via our storm drains. We are now finding lots of litter, plastic bags, wrappers, disposable gloves, masks and food containers on our beaches and throughout the neighborhoods. How can we help? It is very easy! 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.

Our technology platform empowers community partners-including food banks and pantries, health care providers, and city and county governments-to deliver groceries and other essential supplies at scale through our network of delivery partners and volunteers in our efforts to help us identify and reach those in need. We make local volunteerism easy and reliable while providing an easily integrated, tech-enabled solution for partners to scale their impact. Founded by veterans of Uber, Facebook, and Google, the Helping Hands Community organization comprises more than 150 volunteers from professionals who want to give back to students beginning their careers from around the country. About the Role: The Partner Success team provides onboarding, support, and account management to ensure that partner organizations are successful with the HHC platform to serve their communities. As a Partner Success Manager, you will guide new partners through their pilot, onboard partner users to the platform, and manage the on-going relationship and advocate for their needs. This role is absolutely critical to scaling our platform and reaching a larger population of those most vulnerable to COVID-19. What You'll Do: Support partners throughout their journey with Helping Hands Community Work closely with new partners on the planning, pilot, and operation of our solution in their setting Monitor, measure and communicate pilot progress to establish partner's operational and financial baseline Identify opportunities to optimize delivery events and results, and champion partner needs internally with HHC product development teams Qualifications 2+ years experience managing partner accounts and related success metrics 3+ years account management experience with B2B enterprise tools Passionate individual who can bring both empathy and operational rigor to support partners who serve the most vulnerable to COVID-19.

The demands for a role like this requires someone who can devote 5-10 hours / week to this job.

    San Francisco, CA 94115
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    During this past year, Simply the Basics has been working to meet an increased need for basic hygiene needs. This increased need comes from job loss, financial instability, and so much more. Simply the Basics partners with Nonprofits all across the nation to provide hygiene kits directly to the community through shelters, housing programs, and other nonprofits that work with individuals or families in need of their basic hygiene needs. We ensure that hygiene kits are equitable and accessible, with some key values being choice, consistency, and dignity. This is where you come in! Volunteers are provided the opportunity to either pick up (locally in the Bay Area) or be sent basic hygiene items and our Simply the Basics reusable tote bags to assemble hygiene kits. We will match you with a local nonprofit so once completed, you can drop off the hygiene kits to one of our Nonprofit Receiving partners and see the impact you've made! Where does the activity take place? The Hygiene Kit Assembly activity will take place either in your home, office, or another location of your choosing. Individuals can either be together in one space or all Zoom in virtually once they have their items picked up/delivered. You also have the option of having a Simply the Basics team member attend virtually to have a thoughtful conversation surrounding homelessness, how to support our neighbors, stigma reduction, and answer honest questions you and your group might have on this significant issue. Is this activity okay for kids? YES! Our Hygiene Kit Assembly activity is completely customizable and is a great opportunity to engage with children around compassion and our neighbors experiencing homelessness. For groups with kids, we will modify our presentation and provide additional opportunities such as card drawing to put into the Hygiene Kits. Is there a cost? It costs Simply the Basics about $6.50 per hygiene kit and that doesn't include shipping. While there are opportunities for your group to be sponsored, we hope you will consider making a donation or covering the cost of your activity to ensure accessible and equitable basic hygiene needs for all and to allow Simply the Basics to continue accepting new Nonprofit partners through our waitlist.

Requirements: Advocacy volunteers must have a direct, personal experience with Alzheimer's or other dementia, and be willing to share it with elected officials and others.

We will show you how to tell your personal story in ways that build bridges and create positive change.

Please also provide your home address, so that we can determine if you live in a legislative district where we are currently seeking volunteers. What Do Advocacy Volunteers Do? Advocates help advance Alzheimer's research, care and support by: 1. Cultivating positive relationships with their Member of Congress, state legislators and staff. 2. Meeting with their legislators in the district several times per year; while physical distancing is in place, meetings are being held by phone and video. 3. Proactively taking steps to interact with their legislators about Alzheimer’s throughout the year by attending events, writing personal letters and emails, writing letters to the editor or interacting on social media. 4. Reporting all legislative interactions on our advocacy website, www.alzimpact.org. 5. Participating in regular meetings (currently being held by video) to share information and coordinate activities with Alzheimer's Association staff and other advocacy volunteers in your area. 6.

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

    San Francisco and VicinitySan Francisco, CA 94108
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    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 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 last May), which was a worldwide competition for app "design and development" teams to design, build and deliver a tablet-based app to children in remote villages in Africa which could teach them how to read and do basic math (children of all ages, most of whom had never been to school before in their lives). The 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! Meanwhile, our Engineering team, they will be working to prepare the app for launch this Thanksgiving, 2020 by coordinating with our NY-based engineering partner to ensure usability and compatibility with a variety of iOS devices. 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

    Distributions are held Fridays to help those in need access healthy food. Volunteers are needed between 11:00 am - 2:00 pm. We will practice safe social distance protocols, and we ask that all volunteers wear sturdy tennis shoes or boots and bring a mask and gloves. In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, Mercy Housing has shifted our resident service priorities to focus on residents' immediate needs. Many of our residents are coping, like most Americans, with the stress of isolation, lost income and jobs, struggles to meet immediate food and household essential needs, school closures, and children needing to develop remote learning routines. Food insecurity is one of the most pressing needs, and YOU can help us meet those needs while feeling connected to the community in a fulfilling way! The Dudley Apartments is the adaptive reuse of a six-story 110 room hotel originally built-in 1913. In 1989, this building was significantly damaged by a major earthquake, and in 1996 it sustained a fire that displaced all of the residents. The Dudley Apartments has been retooled for permanent housing for low-income individuals and the formerly homeless and now includes 75 studio and one-bedroom units. A special project feature of the Dudley Apartments is the services that Hamilton Family Center provides.
