  • Hospice Volunteers NEEDED! Scottsdale- Finding meaning and light in the hospice journey.

    Hospice Companion Volunteer It’s not surprising that hospice volunteers consistently describe their experiences as personally rewarding and fulfilling. Helping others as they near the end of their lives is a profoundly moving experience. Spend some time virtually with a hospice patient and create a special space for them-- reading, reviewing life histories, writing a letter to a loved one for them, or just telling stories about the one that got away. Now that Covid19 is part of our lives, we are reaching out to our patients and families from a distance. Distance volunteering options will continue to be available to our volunteers, even if Covid19 is no longer a concern. As a Hospice Volunteer you are specially trained to support the patient and family in a variety of ways. Currently, training is done via Zoom. Training is informative, easy, and fun. It is designed to give volunteers the tools to be confident and comfortable working with our patients. Our volunteers are welcomed as respected members of the care team, whether they have a desire to help from a distance, or (when we are no longer in "pandemic mode") in the office, walk a patient's dog, garden, help patients write letters, sing/read to them, or just offer a friendly ear. Whether they work "up close and personal", or prefer to stay behind the scenes, we are happy to work around our volunteers' schedules. For more information on how you can make a difference in the life of a hospice patient, call or email Vanessa Verdugo, Director of Volunteer Services at Brookdale Hospice. I look forward to meeting you and starting on your hospice volunteer journey!!!

  • VIRTUAL English at Home Tutors

    Our Program Arriving in the United States as a refugee or immigrant can be confusing and overwhelming. Adjusting to new customs, navigating new systems, and learning a new language are all challenges that our clients face as they settle-in to their new communities. Our goal is to build fundamental literacy skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) for emerging English speakers facing barriers (transportation, childcare or cultural practices) to attending traditional English classes. Volunteers address these barriers by providing one-on-one or small group virtual sessions at times that work best for the learners. Refugees and volunteers create a relationship that expands their networks and promotes refugee resiliency while building the real-life knowledge, attitudes, and skills. How can I help? As a volunteer, you provide an opportunity for refugees to learn and improve their everyday English speaking, reading and writing. Our learners each have different strengths and areas for growth. Some may speak English, but not read or write or vice versa while others may not read in their first language or their language uses a different alphabet. Regardless, sessions are learner-focused. By determining learner goals, you develop lessons that maximize strengths and encourage learner persistence! Skills/ Experience Teaching, tutoring or cross-cultural experiences are strongly recommended, additional language skills or experience overseas are not required but are a plus. Training and resources will be provided to all volunteers. The Impact This opportunity is ideal for volunteers who want to support refugees/immigrants in a meaningful way. Whether it is: scheduling a doctor’s appointment, passing the citizenship test, asking their child’s teacher questions, going shopping or encouraging discussion about daily life, you will make a difference by providing the tools for success! All of our classes and programs are free to our clients, and we couldn’t provide the level of service we do without the help of our wonderful volunteers. We believe the connections our volunteers make with their clients are mutually beneficial and our communities are stronger and more vibrant when we build these bonds. Questions?

Status report: We are finishing off some design elements of the mechanical parts of our system and finalizing the first iteration of our software. We had several volunteers who meant to look into the regulatory aspects but they weren't able to keep up to their promises which is why this part of the project is currently dragging behind. Description: Since we plan to operate internationally we need a solid understanding of the most common medical regulations. Although the first iteration of the device should be considered a first-aid emergency device we are specifying it's functionalities for much more than that and ultimately would like to achieve ICU approval. Furthermore, there are not only mechanical safety regulations but we also must consider biometric data acquisition, data security, data privacy and software architecture regulations. As a result of this opportunity the equipment will be accepted much more readily among clinicians but we will also receive significantly more funding which will directly lead to many more lives protected. Tasks: assemble and lead a small team of volunteers to support you in the remaining tasks research regulatory aspects in our initial target countries but also from the FDA communicate the requirements with the developers create documentation in conjunction with the developers to be handed to regulatory institutions Approve and Quality Control documents handed to regulatory institutions Training and/or experience required: 1+ years homogeneous experience with medical regulatory compliance especially from the FDA Ability to perceive technical details International viewpoint and ability to research foreign compliance regulations.

  • Hablar con los ancianos, cuando distanciamiento social

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

  • Chat with a homebound senior while Social Distancing.

    Riseboro Community Partnership is seeking volunteers who are interested in spending one hour out of the week chatting via phone with a home bound senior citizen. Many of our seniors are more isolated and therefore are battling depression and anxiety due to the impact of COVID-19. Our senior citizens are unable to go out into the community and are looking for a companion to laugh with, talk to and enjoy their time with! Our goal is to transition our phone matches into physical matches once the Social Distancing rules are lifted, however there is space for volunteers to maintain phone only relationships with the senior they are matched with. This is a mutually rewarding friendship, where you're able to learn about the seniors in your neighborhoods, their art styles, interests and the changes that have occurred to the community over the years! We serve a diverse group of elderly and seek people of all backgrounds and ages (18 and up) to join us in helping our seniors feel more connected to their communities. This Friendly Visiting Program is funded by The NYC Department for the Aging.

  • CASA Volunteer

    Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is a national nonprofit organization and volunteer movement that began in 1976. It's founder, Seattle Superior Court Judge David Soukup, decided he couldn't endure any more sleepless nights worrying about the lifelong impact his decisions had on abused and neglected children. At that time children in foster care didn't receive the same representation in court as parents did. CASA of Santa Cruz County was founded in 1992 and it serves more than 200 children every year. CASA of Santa Cruz County recruits, trains, and supervises volunteers to provide a voice for children from age birth to age 21 who have experienced abuse or neglect and who are dependents of the court. These volunteers establish a one-on-one relationship with the child and ensure that their emotional, health, well-being and educational needs are met until they are reunited with their families or another permanent, caring home/family is found. By getting to know the child individually the advocate is better equipped to represent and support the child in all case related matters. Often the CASA Advocate is the consistent relationship the child has ever had. CASA matches around 200 children with a volunteer Advocate who provides support to them in their journey through the dependency/foster system. CASA Volunteers receive 35 hours of training, which includes understanding the dependency court process, the foster care system, and how to work with a child and be their support. The CASA Volunteer receives support from a CASA staff throughout the whole case and becomes part of our CASA family. Please contact Clarita for more information! clarita@casaofsantacruz.org

  • Virtual: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis as a High School, Middle School or Elem School Artist

    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 keeps growing. More than 20 million children in America's schools can't read! But all of that is about to change. We are looking for a few very special people, talented high school, middle school and elementary school artists who are willing to donate their art to literacy. This project is called the Art4Literacy Project. 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 just launched an amazing and wonderful smartphone app called the FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App, in the App Store and on Google Play on January 5th, 2021 and November 11th 2020 respectively, to help save millions of children from a lifetime of illiteracy! The app literally teaches children how to read in 12 hours! Our organization is an "all volunteer," mission-centric, extended virtual network, comprised of more than seventy, 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 simulate a true one-on-one tutoring experience, which has been the hallmark of the American Youth Literacy Foundation for 12 years. We are looking for talent artists willing to donate one or more pieces of artwork (digital copies only, no originals) that we might use to create community oriented printable pdf's advertising the availability of the FREE FUNetix Reading App to especially, parents in the many varied and diverse communities in America, from the inner cities to the barrios, to the American Indian reservations, the rural heartland and Appalachia, 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, 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! Our simple mission is to ensure that every child learns how to read in first, second or third grade. With your donated art, we can carry our message out to parents and children in need in every neighborhood in this country. We can't use every piece of artwork that we receive. Some we will turn into downloadable pdf's with information about where you can download the app and possibly, how you can access free tutoring, or other important messages. Other pieces we will place on our Art4Literacy Pinterest page with a link from our website. Send us a high resolution photo of your artwork or a copy of your digital artwork and we will add it to our ever growing library of amazing student art. Thank you! We hope this opportunity finds you at the right place and the right time to share a small piece of yourself and your talent, in order 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. We look forward to seeing your artwork. Email files to Art4Literacy@YouthLit.org Thank you again!!! Mr. R. Kali Woodward Founding, Executive Director

    SmartResponse Background: Natural and humanitarian disasters are increasingly prevalent. Donations are delayed, diverted, and do not reach intended beneficiaries. Despite overwhelming response from donors worldwide, billions of dollars do not reach disaster survivors because the international community lacks a way to quickly identify and support locally operating, high-impact organizations in real time during a crisis. Local organizations on the front-line of COVID-19 and other disasters typically receive as little as 3% of donations made after disasters. In contrast, 97% of every donation using SmartResponse can reach local efforts. SmartResponse.org incentivizes transparency, as organizations must share information to get listed. Outcomes: SmartResponse will serve as a global resource for donors, allowing donations to be made directly to local, on-the-ground organizations. SmartResponse will also collect and share additional information on organizations’ response, relief, and recovery activities after disasters happen at scale. Scope: SmartResponse is looking for a volunteer with proficiency in Angular 8 to assist with fixing bugs, adding features and enhancements to the existing platform as well as helping us with an entirely new build implementing a new data-driven architecture and UI. Role Requirements: Must have a GitHub account and understand how to fork a repo and make pull requests. Additionally, volunteer must have the ability to do light work with the command line. Role Duration: ~8 hours per week for at least 6 months To Apply, please send Resume/CV to: volunteer@disasteraccountability.org. Thank you!

  • Hospice Volunteers NEEDED!- Mesa- Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created...

    Hospice Companion Volunteer It’s not surprising that hospice volunteers consistently describe their experiences as personally rewarding and fulfilling. Helping others as they near the end of their lives is a profoundly moving experience. Spend some time virtually with a hospice patient and create a special space for them-- reading, reviewing life histories, writing a letter to a loved one for them, or just telling stories about the one that got away. Now that Covid19 is part of our lives, we are reaching out to our patients and families from a distance. Distance volunteering options will continue to be available to our volunteers, even if Covid19 is no longer a concern. As a Hospice Volunteer you are specially trained to support the patient and family in a variety of ways. Currently, training is done via Zoom. Training is informative, easy, and fun. It is designed to give volunteers the tools to be confident and comfortable working with our patients. Our volunteers are welcomed as respected members of the care team, whether they have a desire to help from a distance, or (when we are no longer in "pandemic mode") in the office, walk a patient's dog, garden, help patients write letters, sing/read to them, or just offer a friendly ear. Whether they work "up close and personal", or prefer to stay behind the scenes, we are happy to work around our volunteers' schedules. For more information on how you can make a difference in the life of a hospice patient, call or email Vanessa Verdugo, Director of Volunteer Services at Brookdale Hospice.

  • 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

    We need 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. 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 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. WE DO NOT DELIVER OUTSIDE THE EDEN AREA. 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.

Our weekly food bank is well utilized, which often makes it difficult for staff to move and distribute alone. Join us and roll up your sleeves to organize and help with distribution. Volunteers like you make it possible! Distributions are held Tuesdays to help those in need access healthy food. Volunteers are needed between 8:30am - 10:30am.

  • San Francisco, CA: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis as a Lead Project Manager

    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 ONE, a very special person, who has 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 (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 the concept 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! With the rise of the smartphone and the amazing penetration of this powerful tool, 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, which teaches children how to read in just 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in about the same time. And this is where you come in. 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, which 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 words. 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! Right now, we are looking for 1 very special person who has everything we mentioned above, passion, expertise, time, etc. to join our team and help us launch this app in 2020. Our lead project managers will help build the fundamental infrastructure upon which the "product launch," as well as all members of our organization involved in the product launch, will depend, for effective, collaborative communication and productivity. The Lead Project Management Team will hire future project managers for specific tasking. If you are interested in becoming a "task-specific" project manager, please also contact us and we will file your resume appropriately for a later date. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity to be one of the three members of our Lead Project Management 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 project management experience and with experience using project management software. 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, extended network comprised of individuals from around the country who collaborate virtually. Individuals interested in this position must have the confidence and ability to continue to build and manage this kind of extended network using select networking 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 something, 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

  • Help Finish Building the Tiny House Village for Homeless Youth!!!

    633 Hegenberger RoadOakland, CA 94621
    Sat, January 23, 2021 - Sun, April 4, 2021

    Next month, we are opening the Tiny House Empowerment Village, the first village of tiny houses for homeless youth in the U.S.! With just a few weeks left until our Village opens, we've reached a really exciting and important time! These next several builds will be crucial for making the progress we need. We are in need of volunteers to come help out at our volunteer builds, which are held every Saturday and Sunday at our Village site at 633 Hegenberger Road in Oakland from 9:30 am till 4:00 pm. We provide lunch, water, and snacks. We ask that all volunteers come wearing a mask (there's lots of space to social distance) and sign our volunteer waiver and sign-in sheet (by the snack table) upon arrival. Each build day can involve a variety of projects for both skilled and unskilled volunteers - for example, this weekend, volunteers will be working on painting and caulking houses, building walkways, and more. We are committed to building as safely and carefully as possible. It's our top priority to keep our community of volunteers safe from the virus, and for our builds to pose as little risk as possible for those who choose to show up. To this end, we intend to continue diligently observing social distancing guidelines, limiting the number of volunteers in small spaces at our builds, and serving individually packaged lunches. Thus far, we have heard of zero build volunteers testing positive for COVID. We also recognize that opening the Village as soon as we are able to safely do means providing housing and shelter to some of the most vulnerable populations adversely affected by the virus. We are beyond grateful for everyone who continues to show up to make a difference in our community despite the mounting challenges the pandemic poses.

    We are looking for a dedicated and friendly team of volunteers to assist our House Managers with Front of House operations in our large, live events venue.

This is a very exciting time to join our organization as we rebuild for the future. Some of your duties will include those of a regular usher: welcoming audience members as they arrive at the theatre, assisting with ticket-scanning, and remaining in the auditorium throughout the performance to promptly alert the House Manager to any patron issues that may arise. However, your main purpose as volunteer will initially be to help us ensure the safety of our audiences, performers and staff- including yourself and one another. Volunteers will help communicate our advanced safety protocols to performers and audience members, assisting with drawing attention to one-way entrances, six-foot floor markers and informative signage. Our House Managers and House Staff will be accessible by radio at all times should you encounter any difficulties. Volunteers will have the opportunity to witness a wide range of performances and events; gain experience in the Theatre, Customer Service and Events industries; support the college's Theatre and Music departments; and contribute to the safety of the Bay Area community.

  • 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.

    Alameda CountyOakland, Alameda, San Leandro, CA 94557
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Help us reduce disparities in Alzheimer's and other dementia by becoming an Alzheimer's advocacy volunteer! The Alzheimer's Association is leading the way to reduce disparities in Alzheimer's and all other dementia - by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and improving access to quality dementia care and support. With grassroots help from passionate volunteers like you, we've passed critical legislation and increased federal funding for Alzheimer's research five-fold since 2011. But our work isn’t done and we need dedicated advocates like you to build on this success in Congress and in every state capital. We’ll train you to advocate in a variety of ways, some of which take just an hour or two every few months. Whatever your experience and availability, we’re eager to have you on our advocacy team! Alzheimer's State Champions: cultivate multifaceted, year-round relationships with their state legislators and their office staff. Alzheimer's Ambassadors: develop deep, one-to-one relationships with their Member of Congress and their office staff. Alzheimer's Congressional Team Members: bring their own unique stories, relationships and skills to complement the work of an Ambassador. 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. Statistics and reason simply aren’t enough; it takes authentic, deeply felt, one-to-one communication from constituents like you to move the hearts and minds of members of Congress and state legislators. We will show you how to tell your personal story in ways that build bridges and create positive change. Please be sure to describe your connection to Alzheimer's disease in your response; applications without this information may not receive a response. 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. All advocates are encouraged to attend our annual Advocacy Day at the State Capitol in Sacramento in February and our National Advocacy Forum in Washington, DC in the spring. Ambassadors are expected to attend the Advocacy Forum and State Champions are expected to attend State Advocacy Day. To learn more about the Forum, visit www.alz.org/forum. Please be sure to describe your connection to Alzheimer's disease in your response; applications without this information may not receive a response. Please also provide your home address, so that we can determine if you live in a legislative district where we are currently seeking volunteers.

    EVERY Sunday 1130 -1430 So covid limits the majority of social work done in the city, the social workers don’t come out, there is no outreach, people are scared to leave their homes, we will first educate each other on covid safety precautions, then implement that training ourselves, ppe , proper social distancing ect. Then we will educate each other on what Dak Dao does, what services are available and offer assistance in accessing them, providing information for clients to access it themselves, after our group info session, we will disburse in a predetermined path that participants will walk in groups (2 minimum, 6 maximum) maintaining social distancing and PPE at all times. During the canvassing participants will be carrying brochures to distribute, as well as bagged lunches for people in need. The groups will conclude their walk by meeting a predetermined spot for group lunch, a "debriefing" of the days walk, and give opportunity for any questions, comments, concerns, as well as suggestions and requests for the next event. keep in mind, this event is for the community to help us all grow and thrive and succeed in life, a part of being a good community is taking care of each other, looking out for each other, so just be aware that the more experienced members of the group started this as a public safety patrol, if we saw crime or violence we did our best to disperse the incident, although acts of violence have subsided, there I still that possibility and the active group members and leaders still step up to intervene, especially in the event of violent crime, racism, or any crime against innocent community members. It is important that any new volunteers be made aware and that no volunteer is expected to take action in any incident, and Dak Dao as an organization discourages any involvement as well, but do not be surprised if you witness the days leader or group members becoming actively involved in an incident that could possibly cause a confrontation or contact with law enforcement, we do act immediately to abate any violence, but also do report such incidents to the police as required by law, we are not a vigilante group nor do we support any such actions.
