  • Provide direct support to a deployed military Chaplain - Virtual Opportunity

    Would you like to help supply a deployed chaplain items to assist them in providing support and comfort to our deployed US Service Members? You can do so from the comfort of your home. You can provide this support through Soldiers’ Angels Chaplains Support Team. Items might include non-denominational letters to distribute to service members, as well as gifts and supplies that can be easily distributed to service members who may be needing extra support. Because chaplains travel throughout the war zone, working with them helps Soldiers' Angels reach personnel who may be in remote locations, feeling isolated and lonely, and in need of a morale boost. We also strongly encourage these service members to submit their names for adoption through their chaplain. Register as a Team Angel to participate in the Chaplain Support Team today: https://soldiersangels.org/Chaplain-Support-Team.html

  • Use your drawing/design skills to help those living in extreme poverty

    The 5th Village Project is creating an online library with information that can help those living in extreme poverty all over the world. For additional information on this idea, please go an look at our website. Because we have to take into account language barriers, we are looking to create visual instructions (think IKEA instructions). The instructions have to be so clear that you can 'do' or 'build' from the visuals, with few, if any words. There are a few examples on the website so you can get a better idea. If you think you can explain instructions in clear, black and white line drawings, please come and help us: your art can change the lives of those who are the most destitute. If you have worked or volunteered in a not-yet-developed country, that would help but if you are willing to learn how to communicate across cultural lines, I'll be happy to coach you. Contact me and send me some of your artwork. I look forward to talking with you Miriam Jacobs

  • Help older adults stay socially connected through online activities

    with Stitch

    Do you have a few spare hours every month? Are you 50 or older and want to make new friends while supporting a worthy cause? If yes, then the Stitch Community would love to hear from you! WHAT IS THE STITCH COMMUNITY? The Stitch Community is a not-for-profit charity that helps address loneliness and social isolation in people over 50. We're now looking for volunteers to help grow local communities all around the world, and help more people over 50 stay socially connected. This is exceptionally important, especially now that so many of us are physical distancing because of COVID-19. ABOUT THE VOLUNTEERING OPPORTUNITY We're currently looking for Community Champion Volunteers (who are at least 50 years old) to help create and grow the Stitch community in their local area. How will you do that? By hosting regular activities and events for your local community over a 12 month period. That’s it! In light of the coronavirus pandemic, you may not be able to host in-person events. That's OK, the regular activities can be virtual until the world returns to normal. These events are fun and informal gatherings where existing and new Stitch members can connect and form new friendships, helping to address and prevent loneliness and isolation. (Please note, twelve months may seem like a long commitment, but it doesn't usually feel that way, as being a Community Champion Volunteer is actually a great deal of fun and most volunteers keep on doing it far longer than 12 months (in fact most never stop!). We just try to make the 12 month commitment clear so that you understand the community may take some time to become vibrant.) THE BENEFITS > The Community Champion Volunteer position is part-time, so you will still have time to pursue your hobbies, travel and spend time with your friends and family. > You'll be granted a premium Stitch membership for free! This gives you unlimited access to the community and its benefits. > Volunteering is fun: meeting new people, laughing, socialising and trying new things is all part of the experience. And while fun, you'll be enriching your own life, and the life of many others. Research has even shown that people who are the happiest are those who do things for others, so prepare to be incredibly happy! > Champion a good cause: You’ll be helping to reduce loneliness, depression and social isolation in your local community by connecting people with the same interests and needs. NOT YET 50? If you're not yet 50 but would like to help address loneliness and isolation in your local community, then we'd still love to hear form you! Learn more about the Stitch Community's range of volunteering opportunities here: https://wipeoutloneliness.org/volunteer/ INTERESTED IN BECOMING A COMMUNITY CHAMPION VOLUNTEER? If you are interested, please fill in the short form at from this link: https://go.stitch.net/virtual-vm If you do not make a submission via the link provided above, your application will NOT be considered.

  • Zero Subsidy Affordable Housing Volunteer From Home Investment Financial Analyst, CrowdDoing

    Zero Subsidy Affordable Housing Volunteer From Home Investment Financial Analyst, CrowdDoing Zero Subsidy Affordable Housing Volunteer Investment Financial Analyst, CrowdDoing Bobby Fishkin (via Reframe It), Marc Rand, and Mark Moulton have been developing a complementary way to approach making Bay Area housing accessible. CrowdDoing, a joint initiative between Reframe It and Match4Action Foundation is supporting zero-subsidy affordable housing. Zero subsidy affordable housing is possible, and variations of it work now in the real world. Anti-poverty impact investable housing through equity rather than debt is achieved by separating appreciation value from utilization value of assets. Property rights can be fractured in service and support of stakeholder interest. As one example, for more than fifty years, Stanford University has made such an arrangement for their off-campus housing for professors. Our notion is that such an arrangement could be offered by an administered investment pool to buyers of a fraction of a home’s appreciation value, combined with the right to live in the home. We suggest that there are investors who could find viable this kind of impact investment in real estate, based on appreciation value but not use value for life of tenant/owners. This might be an innovation in housing affordability that could provide a substantial fraction of the population who cannot currently be housed in existing markets within region a housing opportunity. Stanford buys half of the appreciation value of each home but not the use value on behalf of the university through a mortgage participation agreement structure. Our goal is a zero subsidy means of scaling affordable housing inspired by how Stanford has supported off campus professor housing over the last 50 years. Housing inclusion, Transportation inclusion, FAQ:How is this different from down payment assistance? One is that it's not just the down payment, it could be as much as 2/3rds of the value of the house, not 5% of the value of the house, or 10%. You can see some of the distinctions here- https://www.huduser.gov/portal/periodicals/em/fall12/highlight3.html . Why is this approach needed when there are other kinds of affordable housing? Because there is not enough for families making middle-incomes. FAQ: Why is this approach more efficient then other mechanisms for affordable housing? Because by bringing equity sharing agreement to scale market rate capital can subsize affordability anywhere in which land constraints are significant barriers such as islands, bays and due to mountains. Pooled equity is 100 times more leveraged because market rate capital becomes self-subsidizing of affordable home fractional ownership. FAQ: How do impact investors get out liquid from such an investment structure? Our goal is to create a long hold, holding company. Protects from the environment, insulated as liquidity is self-liquifying as holding company. Property rights in our culture of practice and law integrate many different rights together. These include: the initial value for which an asset was purchased , the appreciation value of the asset over time, and the year-round use-value of the asset. This unity of property rights places vulnerable people between 40% of average annual income and 150% of average annual income in this region at risk of being unstably housed. This instability is due to having a too large portion of their annual income paid to housing expenses. Housing costs 2 to 3 times too much for these people to afford. Within that range of incomes, zero subsidy affordable housing strategies can be of exceptional impact potential. Now, when a family buys a home or apartment, they must almost always buy the whole home. Usually those who do not own homes, rent them. Those who are first time home buyers get a mortgage for the full value of the home. This model w\ould use mortgage participation agreements with qualified families that would allow the fund to buy a fraction of the value of the home (at time of future sale) while allowing the family who buys the rest of the value of the home the right to live there by financing their fraction or arranging to live rent free. A publicly traded fund could buy fractions of the future sale prices of homes. The investors could sell to the fund simply by liquidating their shares. An open issuance of shares could allow more impact investors to invest and through these purchases of shares in the fund, more homes could be purchased. If half the appreciation value of each home was not owned by families, because less money would need to be borrowed, then families could have more secure housing. A publicly traded fund that is designed to leverage mortgage participation agreements to make home ownership more accessible to first-time buyers could attract impact investment. In San Francisco, the median home price is $824,600. The median 20 percent down payment is $164,920. http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/01/16/a-silicon-valley-down-payment-could-buy-you-an-entire-house-in-much-of-the-u-s/ . At a 4% interest rate over 30 years that means a monthly payment of $3,934. But suppose that a first time home owner is only buying half of the value of a home - 40% of the appreciated value, and 100% of the right to live there? Suppose that first-time buyer is not paying rent to the passive impact investors who have bought a percentage of the future purchase price of the home. Then their monthly payments would be $1,967. Such a Fund would have an open issuance to secure additional investors. If investors could be attracted based on the overall rise in book value of the real estate being owned compared to other regions in the world, the affordable housing fund could be both economically attractive and impactful.

  • Impact a Young Woman's Life - Be a Mentor

    Young women and men who grew up in foster care rarely have anyone they can turn to for support and guidance. When they age out of the system they are left to navigate the world without the skills, knowledge or guidance that most of us have. The adversities they have faced vary from being homeless, incarcerated, single moms, ex-addicts, surviving domestic violence and sex trafficking. For some, their adversity has made them stronger. 50/50 Leadership offers a series of financial literacy classes that provides a basic set of financial skills for managing their money. Upon completion, we offer them the opportunity to have a mentor for a year to help further their ability to stay on track managing their money and to reach their desired goals. You do not need to be a financial expert, only that you have been able to manage your finances in the long run and have some success. We provide training and online support meetings for all mentors. This is your opportunity to make a very real difference in a person’s life who has grown up with adversity by being there to listen compassionately, offer guidance and cheer them on. Contact me if you are interested and I will send you an application and set up a time to answer your questions and fill you in with all the details.

Wasted food is the single largest category of material placed in municipal landfills and represents nourishment that could have helped feed families in need. Additionally, water, energy, and labor used to produce wasted food could have been employed for other purposes. - fda Even though these levels are alarming, a lot of opportunities still exist to help farms, supermarkets and restaurants rescue food from being misallocated, misplaced and even misused.

  • Homelessness prevention simulation, volunteer from home, CrowdDoing

    Homelessness prevention simulation, volunteer from home, CrowdDoing CrowdDoing is recruiting volunteers to help us simulate homelessness prevention. Homelessness Prevention Simulation: Thesis: Home buyers today buy 100% of a home, and borrow money through a mortgage to be able to afford to do so. But this purchase masks the fact that they are buying two things at the same time- 100% of the future sale price of a home (so-called appreciation value), and 100% of the usage rights of that home while they are living there (so-called use value). If people could buy only the percentage of appreciation value that they can afford, and still secure stable access to a home, half of homelessness in dense, coastal urban regions such as the Bay Area, New York, Seattle could be prevented. Stanford University has piloted such a model for decades by allowing professors to buy 100% of the use value of their off-campus home and 50% of the appreciation value of their home. This program has allowed individual professors to have asset diversification, access to housing, and an affordable share of the growth in the appreciating market value of their home. Through this program, Stanford University has created access to housing for professors without grant dollars or housing tax credits in a difficult housing market. Stanford’s endowment has earned returns on this investment comparable to the rest of Stanford endowment investments. The extension of this kind of alternative financing-- investing in a portion of appreciation value per home-- could make possible zero-subsidy affordable housing for preventing homelessness and reducing super-commuting. In the Bay Area, jobs and housing creation are unbalanced. For the housing demand to be met, an added minimum of 275,000 homes are needed, available at price levels that neither impoverish nor displace working families. Until those homes are built, what solution might bring families with moderate incomes access to existing housing stock? The solution is to provide one part of our housing need solution by using a financial investment model based on the future appreciation of homes.

  • F-1 Impacted by ICE Policy? Volunteer to change to H-1B cap exempt status to attend/finish college.

    Immediately after the Fourth of July weekend, ICE threw Harvard and MIT - indeed, virtually all of higher education in the United States - into chaos. On July 6, 2020, ICE announced that it was rescinding its COVID-19 exemption for international students, requiring all students on F-1 visas whose university curricula are entirely online to depart the country, and barring any such students currently outside the United States from entering or reentering the United States of America. Active students currently in the United States enrolled in such programs must depart the country or take other measures, such as transferring to a school with in-person instruction to remain in lawful status. If students find themselves in this situation, they must leave the country or take alternative steps to maintain their nonimmigrant status ... What are the other measures or alternative steps? One answer is found in existing law and current policy. Only F and M students are limited to attendance at Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP)-certified schools. This means NONIMMIGRANTS who are ATTENDING SCHOOL INCIDENTAL TO THEIR PRIMARY PURPOSE for being in the United States MAY ATTEND THE SCHOOL OF THEIR CHOICE EITHER PART-TIME OR FULL-TIME (unless otherwise noted). However, these nonimmigrants must abide by the rules of their current status and cannot extend their stay in the United States for the purposes of completing a program of study or a degree. If you are in the USA, and you already have an undergraduate degree from a U.S. institution of higher education, or its equivalent, you have the option to change to H-1B cap exempt status: https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/USCIS/Resources/C2en.pdf https://www.ice.gov/doclib/sevis/pdf/Nonimmigrant%20Class%20Who%20Can%20Study.pdf Participate in a volunteer orientation session: https://zoom.whomentors.com To RSVP or ask questions, email admin@whomentors.com Survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScLw_x79teyCG7d2QI3n-fn5hmnmGCD2diJv8cvY53VbcZyog/viewform

  • Experienced Copywriter for Covid-19 Safety Manual

    with Create Now

    Create Now serves poverty-stricken families living in housing projects who are not taking Covid-19 seriously. Even though our nonprofit organization has given them masks, hand sanitizers and soaps, they don't use them. Families with children live in close quarters and they're not wearing these masks or social distancing. They either choose to ignore the situation, or don't know how to react. Those families who have a loved one with Covid-19 are feeling shame, so they're keeping it hidden from others. Create Now is developing a booklet that we'll print and distribute to these families. and also email digital copies to the 100+ youth agencies in our network so therapists, social workers, case managers and others on the front-lines can share it with their clients. We need a copywriter who has experience writing such a manual, which will include a lot of photos. The content should be easy-to-understand and stress the importance of taking safety measures. Basically, the booklet will include: (1) content that demonstrates the need and urgency to be careful, (2) What happens if people don't follow these guidelines, and (3) the simple steps they can take to prevent the disease. There is an artist who is putting together the layout (8-1/2" x 11" folded in half), which will be in English and Spanish. Around 100-200 will be printed and distributed, while the rest will be shared digitally for our youth partner agencies to print if needed. Please send your resume/bio to: jill@createnow.org. Thanks! About Create Now: Create Now is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has reached more than 49,000 of the most vulnerable kids in Southern California by empowering young people from ages 3 to 24 (TAY) through arts education and mentoring. We especially target kids challenged by poverty, abuse, neglect, homelessness, incarceration, and similar challenges - the "forgotten children" who have fallen through the cracks. Our workshops in music, visual arts, writing, performance, digital media, fashion and culinary arts take place at emergency shelters, foster group homes, rehab centers, detention facilities, mental health agencies, and preschools, Title 1, continuation and charter schools throughout the Greater Los Angeles area. Every year, Create Now brings thousands of children to concerts, plays, museums and other Cultural Journeys at premier venues.

Please volunteer if you speak Spanish fluently! As a Tenant Hotline Counselor you will play a key role in defending housing as a human right by supporting those most impacted by the housing crisis to assert their rights and protect their homes and families. Now more than ever it is imperative to keep our communities housed.

Volunteers are expected to commit to at least 3 hours per week and can participate online via video/teleconference. The Hotline operates Monday through Friday, 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., and Thursdays 6:00-8:00 pm (we can also consider alternative time slots during the week, please contact Victoria to discuss).

  • Reston, Va and vicinity: Help Launch a Groundbreaking Reading App

    Reston, Va and vicinityReston, VA 20190
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Is your child one of the 55 million students who has been displaced from school due to COVID-19? Is your child an emerging reader in 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade who is on the path to reading, but isn’t quite there yet? Now you can do something incredible to help your child, to help your family, and to help potentially millions of children and millions of families across the country, by teaching your child how to read in 12 hours using the FUNetix Literacy App, and by providing us with critical "user feedback" as part of our Advanced Product Trials. Imagine that your child could be reading within 12 hours of starting the FUNetix app. They can finish the school year on a strong, positive note, and they can continue reading throughout the summer, getting ready for their next grade level! The American Youth Literacy Foundation is a nationwide 501 (c) (3), charitable non-profit, founded in 2008 and dedicated to bringing literacy to ALL children by the time they finish 3rd grade. For the past 12 years, we have worked with thousands of children of all abilities across the country, teaching them how to read. We’ve been able to identify and resolve the root cause of the reading problem. And we’ve unlocked the "secret code" that enables kids to learn how to read incredibly quickly, and with a deep understanding of fundamental reading principles. After tens of thousands of hours working with children from all socio-economic backgrounds (and all reading abilities) across the country, we have developed and patented a reading curriculum called FUNetix. For 12 years we have been using this patented curriculum to teach children how to read. And for the past 4 years we have been translating our instructional games and activities into an app. We began building our app long before the Coronavirus ever hit, and we will be teaching children long after the Coronavirus leaves; but for right now, we are doing our final preparations to bring the app to the App Store and Google Play by Thanksgiving, 2020. By participating in our advanced product trials, you will be able to access the app before anyone else. We are inviting up to 1,000 people to download and play the entire app and provide critical feedback to us so that we can make our final decisions on how to optimize the user experience (UX) ahead of our launch. By using the FUNetix app, your child will learn ALL 44 sounds of the English language . They will learn how to blend sounds and sound symbols together to form words, using a "Secret Code" called 21E(r). They will learn all of this in about 4 hours. Then they will begin reading English words using our patented system of diacritics, which are special, child friendly sound symbols that show your child how to pronounce ANY English word. It takes about another 4 hours to begin mastering this special pronunciation guide. Then your child will spend another 4 hours of the app practicing, by playing games and reading stories, and receiving additional instruction, in order to build their skills and their confidence. After about 12 hours of total instruction time, your child will gain access to an entire library of wonderful content, including books, games, puzzles, poems, stories and treasure hunts. As they work their way through the many varied reading options, they will always have a simple button to push when they want to see, for example, how a new word is pronounced. They simply push the FUNetix button within the game or story and the diacritics magically appear. We call this button, the "Magic Decoder." But you can only use the "Magic Decoder" if you know the "Secret Code." Children who know the Secret Code can push the Magic Decoder button whenever they want to unlock the pronunciation of ANY English word. That’s FUNetix! Your child will come out of the app reading at about a 2nd grade level, and they will be ready to accelerate at lightning speed into all things written, including books, stories, and grade level course material. If your child is already in 3rd grade or higher, they will now have the fundamental reading skills they need to quickly catch up to their grade level course material. The app works because it teaches "phonological (sound) awareness" FIRST, allowing the developing brain to create a "neural map" of the 44 unique sounds of English via the use of child-friendly, pictograms, or, "sound symbols." The app works because it first shows children that each sound can be represented as a symbol; and then it shows children that these sound symbols can be blended together to form the very same words that we use in our everyday conversations. Children begin to recognize that sound symbols are the pictorial representations of our spoken language, and the fundamental building blocks of written code. The app works because it introduces English much later in the reading process (4 hours later). English spelling patterns like "ee" and "ea," etc. are equated to one of the 44 building blocks of sound that the student is now already familiar with. When the app introduces English, it does so by showing children ALL of the pieces of a given word and how the sound of each piece ("phonics") is easily revealed by the Magic Decoder (the diacritic symbols they already know, strategically positioned above the word.) The app works because it teaches ALL of the fundamentals of reading in the RIGHT order. And the app works because it provides children with a "touch of the button" pronunciation guide, and teaches them how to interpret that pronunciation guide. It’s like a set of training wheels. Children learn using the diacritics, but once they have seen a word a few times, they no longer need them. By the end of the app, children are essentially weaned off of the diacritics except where new, "novel" words are introduced, words that they have never seen before. For new words, students always have the FUNetix button available so they never have to ask a parent or teacher or older sibling how to decode it. They can do it themselves! And if it’s a word they already know the meaning of, they immediately make the association and UNDERSTAND the context in which it is being used. So if you have 12 hours that you would like to donate to this cause, we are looking for up to 1,000 early users. We hope that you and your child have an incredible experience learning how to read with the patented "FUNetix 12 Hour Literacy App!" And we hope that your child becomes a lifelong reader like so many other children who have learned how to read using the FUNetix curriculum. And we hope that your candid feedback will help us make this app as fun and interesting and enjoyable as possible for millions of children who will use it after Thanksgiving, 2020. And of course this is all FREE. We are a 501 (c) (3) charitable non-profit, and we are giving this app away to the world, for FREE! That’s our purpose and our mission! To sign up, simply go to www.FUNetix.org . Thank you for considering this opportunity and we wish you the very best, especially in these challenging times! -From ALL of us on the FUNetix Literacy App team, thank you! Mr. R.

  • Fairfax: Help children displaced from school by Covid-19 as a Web Development Team Lead

    Fairfax and vicinityFairfax, VA 22030
    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 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 this past May), which was a worldwide competition for app "design and development" teams from around the world to design, build and deliver a tablet-based app to children in remote villages in Africa which could teach them how to read and do basic math (children of all ages, most of whom had never been to school before in their lives). The curriculum that our app is based on is a patented reading decoding system, and is so effective at teaching children how to read, that it usually only takes 4-6 hours for them to understand the basic learning tools, and another 4-6 hours for them to reach a 2nd grade reading level. Compare this to so many of our students who have been in the public school system for 6 years and still can't spell the word "the." Compare this to millions of students who have dropped out of school, primarily because they can't read (more than 10 million per decade). More than 20 million children in grades 3-12 in America's public schools today can't read! Our organization is a 12 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program and we still provide one-on-one tutoring. But our focus has always been on finding a scalable solution to the literacy crisis in America. With the rise of the smartphone and the amazing penetration of this powerful tool (currently estimated at 80%), even into the most impoverished communities, we feel that the answer we have been searching for IS in the form of an app. So for the past several years we have been working to convert our amazing reading curriculum, that teaches children how to read in an average of just 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in about the same time. And this is where you come in. We have a LOT of opportunity in front of us to finish building and testing, and, ultimately, to deliver an end-user experience (the UX) to millions of children in America's inner cities and rural counties, in the barrios and the suburbs, and on the American Indian reservations, and everywhere in-between, with this smartphone app. But in order to do this, we need to complete three pieces of the equation: The Horse, The Cart, and the Payload. The Horse is the curriculum; and it is well under way in the conversion process from an analog to a digital curriculum. The Cart is the distribution system, the "how do we get it out into communities and to the children, once it's built?" Despite what some may think, just because we put an app in the App Store, doesn't mean it will go viral. There's an old adage that goes, "build a better mousetrap, and the world will NOT beat a path to your door!" You still have to market, publicize and distribute your invention, even if it's FREE, like ours! And the Payload is the UX (the user experience). But it's not just the child (the ultimate beneficiary) who must enjoy the experience enough to continue through the progressive learning modules, it's also the parent, or guardian, or friend, or grandparent, or sibling, or concerned adult, who must be supported. And for that we are building the support system and the support network that will scale with the app, and not constrain the growth and penetration of the app into the interstitial spaces of American society. The UX must be tested and must be proven to work in a controlled environment before it is released into an uncontrolled environment like the App Store or Google Play, where its success will depend upon ease of use, ease of understanding and the support that we provide to caring adults who download the app for the purpose of saving their child from living a life of impoverishment, without education, and without hope. That support network for caring adults will consist of in-app information as well as web-based content that they can refer to to gain a better understanding of what the app is and how it works and how they can best assist their child through the learning process. In addition, all of our external communications will be supported and cross connected through our website. Our brand, image, content and messaging will be a collaboration of our graphic design, UX, communications and Web Development teams. The specific software we use to update and improve our website will be decided after we have assessed all of the new component parts we wish to include in our web presence. As for the curriculum, we have approximately 1,500 of 2,000 screens completed. After the child learns the fundamentals of letters and sounds and how to blend sound symbols to form words and sentences (using a super-child-friendly, phonetic code called 21E), we transition them to English, where we utilize our patented diacritic decoding system to introduce them to the irregular letter patterns found in English spelling. From there, we continue to increase students' awareness of the various letter patterns and combinations, while simultaneously introducing them to more and more complex sentences, stories and interactive, fiction and non-fiction content. Our Curriculum Content Development team will be helping to build the final five modules plus additional content (300-500 screens) of the app and will be sourcing additional books, stories, games, puzzles and other content that children will transition to (a content library) after they have finished the 12-hour structured curriculum. There's much more to tell. You can read more about our story and about us on our current website (built in Wordpress) at www.YouthLit.org. We have much to do to add to and rework the web experience to best reflect our current app-focused mission. As for our Web Development team, we are looking for 3 very special people who have everything we mentioned above, passion, expertise, time, etc. to join our team and help us launch this app this Thanksgiving, 2020. Our three Web Development Team Leads will help develop, plan and execute a complete website overhaul. The messaging, branding, look and feel, content, graphics, and animation, will come from a deep collaboration with the other team members mentioned above and will require experience, strategic and creative thinking, excellent planning and communications skills and strong graphics and coding skills. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity to be one of the three leads for our Web Mastery 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 website development and maintenance experience, in either a corporate or non-profit environment. This is a complex undertaking and we are looking for highly proficient and organized professionals. Just to be clear, our organization is an all volunteer, mission-centric, extended virtual network, comprised of highly skilled and experienced individuals from around the country (and a few from around the world) who collaborate through cloud-based technology and platforms. Individuals interested in this position must have the confidence and ability to work in a virtual environment using select networking and communications tools and platforms. Thank you! We hope this opportunity finds you at the right place and the right time in your career to make a difference and an impact, in an amazing way, for millions of children who are waiting for someone, or some thing, to lead them out of a life of impoverishment and into a future of unlimited possibility and potential. 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

  • Fairfax, VA: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis as a Community Outreach Liaison

    Fairfax and vicinityFairfax, VA 22030
    Mon, June 8, 2020 - Tue, September 1, 2020

    Community Outreach/ Distribution Liaison: 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 the more than 55 million children displaced from school due to COVID-19, and even to help many adults who can't read. Here is an opportunity to help close the social inequality gap, by closing the opportunity gap, by closing the education gap, by closing the literacy gap, and by creating a new era of near-100% literacy for the next generation of emerging American school children. We are looking for six, 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.

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, watershed moment in American education; this can either be a crisis, and a very real threat to the future success of millions of young students, or it can become an opportunity to change the American education landscape forever , by bringing literacy to millions of children who would otherwise have continued down the same path of scarcity and deprivation as so many generations before them. So many people are asking for "Real Solutions" now, not just talk, or continued, seemingly never-ending "conversations" about social reform. At the American Youth Literacy Foundation, we believe that literacy itself, second only to family and faith, is the single most "upstream" component parts of that "Real Solution;" and that literacy is the underpinning of all education; and that education is the key to every individual's opportunity for self-actualization, and the only truly scaleable, truly proven "ticket" out of the oppressive burden of poverty. 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 Xprize competition was incredibly successful at bringing awareness and attention to the use of technology as a potential equalizer in the world of education. 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 through." Compare this to millions of students who have dropped out of school, primarily because they can't read ( more than 10 million per decade (24% 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 12-year-old, nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profits founded in 2008. We started out as a regional tutoring program, then became a nationwide tutoring program; but all the while, 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 (more than 80% in even the most impoverished communities), we feel that the answer we have been searching for IS in the form of an app. So for the past several years, we have been working to convert our amazing reading curriculum that teaches children how to read in 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in 12 hours. And this is where you come in. We have more than 50 people working to build, test, and deliver this app to millions of children in America's inner cities and rural communities, to the barrios and the suburbs and the American Indian reservations and everywhere in-between. But in order to do this, we need to reach the people who need it the most. And in order to reach those people and those communities, we need to hear from you, and people like you who live in those communities. We need to better understand the current state of the schools and the education system at the local level in your neighborhood, town or city. We need to more fully understand the specific challenges that illiteracy and low literacy have burdened your community with, so that we can more fully develop a workable tactical plan to reverse the literacy crisis and lift those burdens, using the FUNetix Reading App. The FUNetix curriculum is approximately 12 hours and 2,000 screens that take a child from the ABC's to a 2nd-grade reading level. Children learn the fundamentals of letters and sounds and how to blend sound symbols together to form words and sentences. The app uses a super-child-friendly, phonetic code called 21E, that makes it easy to learn how to read. The FUNetix Reading System is patented and uses a special diacritic decoding system to show children the irregular spelling patterns of English, and especially how to pronounce any English word. At the American Youth Literacy Foundation, our goal is to bring the FUNetix Reading 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 with classes of up to 40 children or more, combined with a typical "off the shelf" reading curriculum that is confusing and doesn’t scale. Children get lost, confused, frustrated 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 it doesn't have to be that way; and FUNetix is going to change ALL of this, soon! The role of a Community Liaison is as a connector. You will help Youth Lit connect to your community and many hundreds of other communities across the United States by reaching out to understand exactly how the literacy crisis is affecting people in those communities, and by finding out what specific solutions they desire, and how best we can bring our literacy app into the homes and minds of the children who need it most. A Community Liaison is someone who is passionate about ending the literacy crisis in America, and finally creating that "Equal Playing Field" that everyone has been talking about for so long. But a Community Liaison also brings key ideas and action steps that they believe can be taken in order to make that happen. Such steps may involve working with specific people in the community, advertising at select locations, connecting with specific organizations, or otherwise finding ways to reach the parents and children that are most in need of a new solution to reading and education. Working together, we will radically, positively impact communities all across the United States, by bringing "Literacy for All" to the next generation of emerging learners. We are looking for six intelligent, creative, outgoing, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals with significant real-world experience and a willingness to both talk to and listen to people, and to identify ways to best share the benefits of our app with those children in need. This is a complex undertaking and we are looking for highly proficient and organized professional-minded individuals who have a track record of success in creating positive outcomes in their communities, and who are willing to reach beyond, to other communities like their own, to bring change across America. The specific action step that we need you to take now is to complete a google form that will be sent to you if you express interest in this position by hitting the "I'm interested" button. 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 (as well as on the street and on the ground) 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 within our target audience. Thank you! We hope we have given you enough information about who we are and what our mission and goals are; and we hope that 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. The specific action step that we need you to take now is to complete a google form that will be sent to you if you express interest in this position by hitting the "I'm interested" button. All of the information you provide in that Google form will help us develop a deeper understanding of your particular community and its needs.

    Every time someone moves from one of our programs into their own home or apartment, we try to make sure they have the necessities. This is even more essential to those moving in right now. For a person who is vulnerable and homeless, moving into stable housing is the best chance they will have to protect themselves from COVID-19. Once we move people into a new unit, there’s a lot of things they still need to live there. That’s where you come in! Think of the last time you moved into a completely unoccupied space - what did you need? We’re hoping to find some members of the community to collect items for Welcome Home kits. Got a lot of friends? Ask each of them to donate one thing! Please note, with the dignity of it’s recipient in mind, we ask that kits be made entirely of new items. A full move in kit contains the following: A set of sheets, comforter, and pillow(s) Set of dishware Set of silverware One medium sized appliance Laundry basket Bucket of cleaning supplies Essential Toiletries This is the type of project that anyone can tackle. Whether you're just one caring soul or a whole group of them, you can help us make people feel safe and at home.
