  • 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

  • Virtual: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis by donating your artwork or your child's artwork

    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. #TheFUNetixLiteracyProject is a coordinated nationwide project to teach every child in America how to read by the end of third grade. The #Art4LiteracyProject, in conjunction with the FUNetix Literacy Project, is 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 . Together we are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for 12 years using a patented curriculum, now available as an app in the App Store and Google Play. We just launched this amazing and wonderful smartphone app, called the FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App, 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 talented 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 flyers and merchandise like T-shirts, Water Bottles and Coffee Mugs which will be available in our new FUNetix Store. FUNetix is 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. Our simple mission is to ensure that every child learns how to read in first, second or third grade. If you want to see your artwork in print, please donate colorful, happy, beautiful, interesting and non-offensive artwork today! 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 FUNetix app. Other pieces we will brand with the FUNetix logo and place on items in our store. Still others we will place on our Art4Literacy Pinterest pages with a link from and to 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. Join #TheFUNetixLiteracyProject! We look forward to seeing your artwork. Email files to Art4Literacy@YouthLit.org Important: Please include your age and grade! Optional, please include your first name and last initial if you want recognition. (You may also include your last name but that is also optional.) Artwork can be anything that you've already created that's colorful, pretty, interesting, etc., or something new and specifically oriented around reading. Finally, feel free to prominently sign your work! Thank you again!!! Mr. R. Kali Woodward Founding, Executive Director American Youth Literacy Foundation

  • Virtual: Help solve the literacy crisis as a Funding 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 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.

  • After Effects, Adobe Premiere

    We are making short videos, if you have After Effects skills, Adobe Premiere we would love it:) The videos are designed to: Overturn the laws that have turned animals into a property and have made animal farming legal under the protection of the law. Instead, installing a new conclusion that makes ownership, animal farming, or exploitation unthinkable. End all human and animal suffering by recognizing the root cause of its existence. The recognition itself eradicates it and prevents any future recurrence. Overturn laws that have legalized corporations and their property. Exposing the fact that corporations are not single entities, thus they cannot own nor be owned, thus making them meaningless. End all human-made conflicts/wars/problems such as racism, prejudice, violence, bullying, all negativities, etc., by making them inconceivable and unthinkable. End all environmental crises and climate change by changing it from a separate issue to everyone's issue. Inform everyone that there is not a single problem or suffering in the world that did not start because of our reliance on inaccurate senses. How does a person's apathy turn into compassion, unaware of even the concept of harming another living being? Throughout history, there has been no philosophy, theory, education, religion, or wishful thinking that has produced any noticeable amount of compassionate people. Yet, there is one fact, unknown to most, that can produce this miraculous positive change in everyone. We know we can do this easily as this revolutionary information we are about to present has never been available or known to most humans. Are you interested?

We here at homemade strive for similar goals in the arts and humanities. As I'm sure you all know, covid 19 is affecting businesses and peoples lives in innumerable ways. This is of course true with nonprofits as well. Most of the traditional ways that nonprofits have receive donations, hold events, and maintain operations have been turned on their heads. Instead of our nonprofit hoping to one day receive enough support to hire a grant writer, our operations have been so effected, due to the nature of teaching art and holding art events, that now we absolutely need grants to keep our services available to the community. This is where you come in. Would there be someone that can help us at this nascent stage receive our first grant?!? Could You be the Magical Fairy that Helps our little, humble studio grow into something amazing!?!?! If you want to experience a real life fairy tail, please join us! Here is some information about us (mostly focusing on the Tea School). Learn about Tea, Tea Arts, and Tea Cultures! Come Learn about what my Tea Teachers call, "The Marshall Art of Hospitality!" We are a safe and sacred space dedicated to promoting traditional tea styles from around the world! A space for the lifestyle arts and cultures of tea. Brought to the community by HomeMade, a 501(c)(3); The Only Single Origin, Single Estate Tea Room in New Mexico. What we expect of you: Learning Tea Arts and Serving Tea in traditional cultural styles. Making Stuff. Cleaning Stuff. Selling Stuff. Packing Stuff. Social Media Stuff. Learning and Teaching. Spreading the Love and daily use of Handmade Items. If you love origami, letter writing, good penmanship, clean, and detail orientated is a huge plus! Customer Friendship and Showing the Space to them. Being super friendly and kind to the guests are of the upmost importance. We will also have tea artisans and teachers, from around the globe, visit us occasionally; so, we must take care of them like the precious treasure they are. Everything is subjective. We will find what kind of jobs will best suit you, your talents, and what you want to learn! Everyone Must help with cleaning and must clean-up after themselves. Cleaning is mandatory for everyone. You are welcomed to learn whatever you would like with us. You are welcomed to sell craft and art items in the gallery/tea room (if we like your craftsmanship and price). We are a pottery studio, school, gallery, tea room and bookstore in sunny Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. You'll have access to the pottery studio and tea room outside of volunteer hours. You’ll have access to all studio tools and materials free of charge. You just pay for the pieces you wish to keep. Please call us (505.243.0228) with further questions or to schedule a tour!

    Love cats? Want to help play and socialize our kitties (and clean their litter boxes...) before they go to their forever homes? This is your opportunity!! Please fill out the following volunteer application so we know how to contact you, what you're interested in and you are properly registered: https://tailsct.z2systems.com/projectList.jsp Here's a little history.... In March 2017, TAILS moved into the 4-unit, cat adoption space at the Petco-Westport located at 1850 Post Road East(next to Michaels & Home Goods). Each day we go visit our furry charges and clean their litter, feed them, play with them and give them some general loving! We have three daily shifts to help make sure the kitties have lots of opportunity to be played with - and we need help! We are hoping for 60-90 minutes (or more!) of your time during one of these daily shifts: 1030am-230pm or 4-730pm, M-Sat and 1030-230 or 4-645pm on Sunday. Note: you don't have to go the entire shift - it's 90 or so minutes during that shift. Whether you can commit to one night a week or once every other week (or once/month?) - that would be great! It's easy and you really are making a difference! Masks are required to be worn as per mandate by Westport First Selectman. Additionally, the fold-out gate which is used to make a perimeter for the kitties to play allows for social distancing to be created. Cat caretaking must be done during the store's hours (9am-8pm, M-S, 10-6 on Sun) and we have specific shifts which are managed by an online calendar which you receive access to once you've gone through orientation. Mandatory requirements: 1) fill out volunteer form (link below), 2) Volunteer orientation (30-45 minute orientation at store; you will be contacted once you sign up). All supplies are provided. To sign up for one of our orientations -- PLEASE PRE-FILL OUT OUR VOLUNTEER FORM HERE: https//tailsct.z2systems.com/projectlist.jsp We welcome responsible children as volunteers if accompanied by an adult and teens, based on successful completion of a probation period (and parental signature), the child/children can volunteer solo/pairs.

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.

    The Stamford AreaStamford, CT 06925
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Opening a birthday giving chapter is easy, fun, and a great way to give back to the community! Here's how it works: 1. We schedule a video call with you to explain how the process works. 2. Our first choice is to find a Salvation Army location (or another organization that is willing to pick up the birthday bags from your house) that is geographically close to where you live. 3. We contact the Salvation Army (or another organization that is willing to pick up the birthday bags from your house) and explain The Birthday Giving Program's mission. This organization should be able to pick up the birthday bags from your house. 4. You order the birthday bag supplies off of Amazon or another online store and have the gifts shipped to your house. Each birthday bag costs between $5 and $10, depending on how many gifts you decide to put in the bag. Your goal is to provide 10 birthday bags to the organization each month. Each birthday bag includes the same gift items, which will go to kids of a specific age group! 5. Once you have packed the birthday bags, you contact the organization and they pick up the birthday bags from your house! If you are interested in serving the senior citizen or veterans division let us know and we can find an organization to connect you with!

  • Spiritual Care Hospice Volunteer

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

    Spiritual Support The word "spiritual" can be used in many ways. We understand spiritual life as each person’s unique experience of a power beyond himself or herself, a sense of order in the universe, a sense of purpose in living, and a sense of connection with everything. Spirituality also includes the organizing set of beliefs, values, hopes, and yearnings, by which each person makes sense of the frequently chaotic elements of life. At Seasons we believe that all people are spiritual, regardless of their specific religious affiliation or devotion. We believe that the spiritual life is most directly expressed and experienced in human connection, and that spiritual concerns are intertwined with every facet of our lives. Hospice and Spiritual Care During times of upheaval and change in life, we all may experience seasons of deep doubt and questioning. We may feel uprooted, set adrift, and utterly alone. Sometimes we respond with deep sadness, other times with numb silence, and still other times with rapid activity and an effort to prove to ourselves that we are still in control. At this time of pending loss, you may be asking "Why me?" or "Where is God?" or "Why do good people like my friend suffer so much?" or "What will I leave behind as a memory of myself?" Beliefs that once made sense and sustained you no longer seem valid. Seasons Hospice & Palliative Care is looking for caring and compassionate individuals who are willing to give of their time to help patients and families dealing with terminal illness. Spiritual care is one of the core values and principles in the Seasons Hospice Circle of Care. As a spiritual care volunteer at Seasons you may be asked to provide companionship and active listening that includes special readings, prayer, meditation and poetry. Our spiritual care volunteers can be seen reading sacred text for our patients and families and come from a variety of faith communities. As a Spiritual Care Volunteer it is important to remember that an "openness to listen" is vital in supporting others through a terminal illness. Companionship, friendly visits, spiritual and emotional support are only a small portion of what our trained Hospice volunteers provide on a daily basis. Caregiver relief and advocacy are also very important. Comprehensive volunteer orientation and training is required and provided free of charge. As a member of our Hospice Interdisciplinary team, ongoing support and education opportunities are also available. The time commitment for volunteering is flexible and based on individual availability. Most correspondence can be done by phone, mail or email, eliminating the need to come to the offices on a regular basis. Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care serves most of Connecticut. That means that volunteers serve close to home or work. Should you or someone you know be interested in Volunteering or Interning with Seasons Hospice and Palliative Care, please visit http://www.seasons.org/page/Volunteering or contact us at aisenhart@seasons.org or 203-490-1155.
