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

    Community Outreach/Distribution Team Lead: Have you ever wanted to do something AMAZING to change the world but didn't know where to start? Here is an opportunity to help underprivileged children, to help under-served children, to help ALL children displaced from school due to COVID-19, and even to help many adults who can't read. We are looking for three, very special people, who have the skills, expertise, experience, passion, and time to be part of something amazing that is about to fundamentally change the lives of millions of children. Right now, millions of children have no hope; but soon, they will have the opportunity to learn how to read, which, in turn, will open a window to education and to a world of potential for them that, not only, has never been opened before, but that has never even been seriously contemplated as a potential reality. What we are talking about is adaptive learning, gamified smartphone app, called FUNetix, that can literally, teach a child how to read, in the comfort of their home, in an average of just 12 hours of total use time! We are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for nearly 12 years! We have been developing this app for about two years, and in 2020, we launched this incredible smartphone app in the App Store and on Google Play, to help save millions of children from a lifetime of illiteracy! Already, there are millions of children who are struggling to learn how to read. Already, there are millions more who have given up on reading and are destined to go through life either completely illiterate, or with semi-literate skills at best. And now with the displacement of tens of millions of children from school, for an indeterminate amount of time , the loss of reading capacity of the next generation presents a new, crisis moment in American education , and a very real threat to the future success of millions of young students. We are partnered with an engineering team that was one of the five, $1 million finalists, in the XPrize for Global Learning competition, which was a worldwide competition for app "design and development" teams to design, build and deliver a tablet-based app to children in remote villages in Africa which could teach them how to read and do basic math (children of all ages, most of whom had never been to school before in their lives). The curriculum that our app is based on is a patented reading decoding system , and is so effective at teaching children how to read, that it usually only takes 4-6 hours for them to understand the basic learning tools, and another 4-6 hours for them to reach a 2nd grade reading level. Compare this to so many of our students who have been in the public school system for 6 years and still can't spell simple words like "the, said, was, would, could, there or which." Compare this to millions of students who have dropped out of school, primarily because they can't read (more than 10 million per decade (25% according to U.S. Government statistics)). More than 20 million children in grades 3-12 in America's public schools today are either completely or functionally illiterate, according to the U.S. Government’s "Annual Report Card." Our organization is a nearly 12 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program in Philadelphia and central New Jersey, and we still provide one-on-one tutoring. But our focus has always been on finding a scalable solution to the literacy crisis in America. With the rise of the smartphone and the amazing penetration of this powerful tool (currently estimated at 80%), even into the most impoverished communities, we feel that the answer we have been searching for ABSOLUTELY comes in the form of an app. So for the past several years we have been working to convert our amazing reading curriculum, that teaches children how to read in an average of just 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in about the same time. And this is where you come in. We have a LOT of opportunity in front of us to finish building and testing, and, ultimately, to deliver an end-user experience (the UX) to millions of children in America's inner cities and rural counties, in the barrios and the suburbs, and on the American Indian reservations, and everywhere in-between, with this smartphone app. But in order to do this, we need to complete three pieces of the equation: The Horse, The Cart, and the Payload. The Horse is the curriculum; and it is well under way in the conversion process from an analog to a digital curriculum. (We have designed already 1,500 of the nearly 2,000 screen, fully narrated, reading learning experience.) The Cart is the distribution system, the "how do we get it out into communities and to the children, once it's built?" Despite what some may think, just because we put an app in the App Store, doesn't mean it will go viral. There's an old adage that goes, "build a better mousetrap, and the world will NOT beat a path to your door!" You still have to market, publicize and distribute your invention, even if it's FREE, like ours! More on "The Cart," in a moment. And the Payload is the UX (the user experience). But it's not just the child (the ultimate beneficiary) who must enjoy the experience enough to continue through the progressive learning modules, it's also the parent, or guardian, or friend, or grandparent, or sibling, or concerned adult, who must be supported. And for that we are building the support system and the support network that will scale with the app, and not constrain the growth and penetration of the app into the vast layers and interconnected folds of American society. The UX is being tested and empowered to work in a controlled environment before it is released into an uncontrolled environment like the App Store or Google Play, where its success will depend upon ease of use, ease of understanding and the support that we provide to caring adults who download the app for the purpose of saving their child from living a life of impoverishment, without education, without access to information, and without hope. In addition, all of our external communications will be supported and cross connected through our website. Our brand, image, content and messaging will be a collaboration of our graphic design, UX, Communications and Web Mastery teams. The specific software we use to update and improve our website will be determined soon, after we have assessed all of the new component parts we wish to include in our web presence. As for the curriculum, we have approximately 1,500 of 2,000 screens completed. After the child learns the fundamentals of letters and sounds and how to blend sound symbols to form words and sentences (using a super-child-friendly, phonetic code called 21E), we transition them to English, where we utilize our patented diacritic decoding system to introduce them to the irregular letter patterns found in English spelling. From there, we continue to increase students' awareness of the various letter patterns and combinations, while simultaneously introducing them to more and more complex sentences, stories and interactive, fiction and non-fiction content. Our Curriculum Content Development team will be helping to build the final 10 modules plus additional content (300-500 screens) of the app and will be sourcing additional books, stories, games, puzzles and other content that children will transition to (an interactive "Content Library") after they have finished the 12-hour structured curriculum. There's much more to tell. You can read more about our story and about us on our website at www.YouthLit.org , however, keep in mind that many updates to that website are coming soon As for our Community Outreach / Distribution Team, our challenge is to bring the app to children who are not learning how to read in school, either because they are in schools that are failing or because they are in difficult situations at home for a variety of reasons. Many parents are desperate for an education solution for their children, but the challenge of teaching reading to children is too great for teachers on their own with upwards of 40+ children in a class in many cases, combined with a reading curriculum that is confusing and doesn’t scale. Children get lost, confused and bored, and many of them act out, forcing teachers to focus on classroom management as opposed to classroom learning. The real literacy rates in so many thousands of America’s elementary schools are 20% or less in 3rd grade and beyond! But this doesn’t have to be this way and FUNetix is going to change ALL of this, soon! Our Community Outreach Team Leads will be building relationships with community leaders of all types and varieties to first, assess needs, and then deliver solutions to millions of parents who have no other place to turn. Our goal is not simply to tell parents what WE have, but rather, to listen to their needs vicariously, through our community advocates, in order to best tailor our app-based solution to meet THEIR needs. We are partnering with thought leaders, community leaders, religious leaders, other non-profits and NGO’s, national leaders, role models, such as entertainment and sports figures, corporate leaders and philanthropists, and any and all people and organizations who are focused on fundamentally and permanently improving the education landscape for ALL of America’s children. Our Community Outreach and Distribution Team Leads are individuals with diverse backgrounds and with diverse interests and talents, but most of all, they are individuals who have a willingness to reach out to communities in need and to the leaders within those communities, as well as to other leaders who can help make a difference. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity to be one of the three leads for our Community Outreach/Distribution Team, please send us a cover letter and resume to HR@YouthLit.org. We are looking for intelligent, creative, outgoing, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals with significant real world experience and a willingness to both talk and listen to people and to identify ways to best share the benefits of our app with children in need. This is a complex undertaking and we are looking for highly proficient and organized professionals. Just to be clear, our organization is an all volunteer, mission-centric, extended virtual network, comprised of highly skilled and experienced individuals from around the country (and a few from around the world) who collaborate through cloud-based technology and platforms. Individuals interested in this position must have the confidence and ability to work in a virtual environment using select networking and communications tools and platforms. Given the current "social distancing" environment that we find ourselves in, individuals must also be willing to pick up the phone, send out emails, schedule Zoom meetings and use other communications technologies to contact and build relationships with our target audience. Thank you! We hope this opportunity finds you at the right place and the right time in your career to make a difference and an impact, in an amazing way, for millions of children who are waiting for someone, or some thing, to lead them out of a life of impoverishment and into a future of unlimited possibility and potential. We look forward to hearing from you and speaking with you about the future of literacy in America. Mr. R. Kali Woodward Founding, Executive Director

You can provide this support through the Soldiers’ Angels Chaplains Support Team. Items might include non-denominational letters to distribute to service members, as well as gifts and supplies that can be easily distributed to service members who may be needing extra support. Because chaplains travel throughout the war zone, working with them helps Soldiers' Angels reach personnel who may be in remote locations, feeling isolated and lonely, and in need of a morale boost. We also strongly encourage these service members to submit their names for adoption through their chaplain.

  • Holiday Gifts for Residents: Custom Baseball Caps

    CRi, Choice. Respect. independence. (formerly known as Community Residences, Inc.), is a community-based organization with a focused effort on providing people with developmental disabilities and/or mental health needs the resources, supports and services they need to live their lives with purpose, actively engaged in communities of their choosing. CRi’s mission fully supports a person’s ability to exercise control of their life’s choices, and to live in and contribute to communities of their choosing, as young adults through aging in place. We believe in serving individuals within the communities in which they live & supporting the individual’s choices and independence. With COVID changing the way we all interact with the world, we’ve had to adjust our routines, implement coping mechanisms, and find new strategies to connect with our loved ones and our community. CRi individuals have had to do the same, but many don’t understand why. A year and a half into the pandemic, it’s still difficult to venture into the community for a fun outing and therefore have limited abilities/opportunities to socially engage. However, you can help with assisting the individuals with engagement, learning about different communities and staying connected. Tell the CRi individuals about yourself by designing a personalized baseball cap. Your culture, your passions, your story - but on a baseball cap! A baseball cap is something that can be worn, collected, or hung like a piece of art and would make a beautiful holiday gift. Custom Baseball Caps Do you have baseball caps around your house? Help provide a customized gift for an individual this holiday season! CRi supports about 350 individuals in our residential and day programs. Supplies - Pick and choose what works best for your artistic vision! Adjustable baseball cap - make sure it’s clean! Index card Safety pin, string or thread Puffy paint Sharpies Fabric markers/paint Felt Scissors Bedazzler?! Lapel pins Fabric patches Hot glue gun and glue sticks. Many hat DIYers use E6000 Craft Beads Getting Started Make sure the baseball hat you choose to decorate is adjustable and clean. All the individuals supported by CRi are adults. Think about how you would like to design your hat and what you would like to add. Here are some things to think about: Where are you from? Does your home have a defining characteristic? What’s your favorite food? What sport do you like to play/watch? What’s your favorite hobby? What’s your favorite animal? What’s your favorite place in the world? **Please avoid any religious or political messages to respect individual and diverse beliefs.** Gather your supplies! Some of the people we support are hard of seeing and experience the world through their sense of touch, so adding bright colors and a variety of textures to your hat will help them experience your design. Here are three great YouTube videos to provide decoration inspiration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eY_3-mCvZZ0 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cG_p6QrPuxw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjumeG-o5yc Make sure all the designs of your hat have dried (paint, glue, etc) and if you did add 3D pieces such as tulle, pompoms, beads, etc, please make sure they are securely adhered to the hat. On an index card, explain all the components of your hat so the design can be easily understood and why the designs included are important to you. Punch a hole in your index card and attach it to the adjustable portion of the hat using a safety pin, string or thread. Baseball caps can be dropped off or mailed to the following addresses: Chantilly HQ 14160 Newbrook Dr, Chantilly, VA 20151 Donation boxes are located in the lobby beyond the double glass doors Accepting donations Monday - Friday from 8am to 5pm and Saturdays from 10am to 12pm Arlington/Falls Church Maintenance Office 7297A Lee Hwy, Falls Church, VA 22042 Donation boxes are located in the lobby just inside the front door Accepting donations Monday - Friday from 10am to 2pm Richmond 808 Moorefield Park Dr., Ste. 120, Richmond, VA 23235 Accepting donations Monday - Friday from 10am to 1pm

Cat caretaking must be done during the store's hours (basically 9am-9pm, M-S, 9-6pm on Sun) and around what is considered "normal" feeding times.

  • SMART Recovery meeting facilitator

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

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