  • Million Mask Mayday - Sewing Volunteer

    We are welcoming fabric masks from our community to help medical staff during COVID-19, in response to the mask shortage. Orders for standard/disposable masks are on long back-orders, due to both demand and supply chain issues. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), fabric masks are a crisis response option when other supplies have been exhausted. Sewing experience is not necessary, but making the masks with a sewing machine is required, so that they can be washed and withstand the need to reuse, if necessary. If you can help, please respond to this need. Once you register below, we will send you a Million Mask Mayday toolkit that includes: face mask patterns, a list of acceptable materials, and where materials can be purchased online. PLEASE NOTE: Jersey Cares is working in collaboration with Million Masks Mayday to provide these homemade masks to healthcare professionals to be used as a last resort, or in lower risk situations, due to the extreme shortage of N95 respirators and surgical masks needed in response to COVID-19. Please see below for specific guidelines from the CDC's Crisis Strategy section: "When No Facemasks Are Available, Options Include: Healthcare personnel (HCP) use of homemade masks: In settings where facemasks are not available, HCP might use homemade masks (e.g., bandana, scarf) for care of patients with COVID-19 as a last resort. However, homemade masks are not considered PPE, since their capability to protect HCP is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option. Homemade masks should ideally be used in combination with a face shield that covers the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face." The health and safety of volunteers and our community is our top priority. If you feel vulnerable to exposure or do not feel comfortable volunteering at this time, please refrain from doing so. To help us care for one another, we recommend volunteers follow these guidelines: Please do not register as a Sewer for the Million Mask Mayday project if you are sick or someone in your household is sick. Please wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water. For additional resources and recommendations please visit: https://covid19.nj.gov/

  • Write letters to patients

    During this time of sheltering in place due to the Covid-19 virus, the Snowline staff continues to bring exceptional care to patients, but our volunteers are unable to visit for family respite and patient companionship until further notice. In lieu of in-person visits, we want to harness the creative energy of our community and start a letter writing campaign that will bring sunshine to our patients and their families as they stay safe at home. Snowline Hospice has been serving patients and their families in our community for over 40 years. Hospice can be described as special kind of care given to people nearing the end of their lives - a philosophy focused on patient comfort and dedicated to helping patients and families live each day to its fullest. We would love for your thoughtful letter to be a welcome part of their care. Here is the plan: We ask that our letter writers be 18 years of age or older. Write as many notes as you would like and mail them to (or drop them off at): Snowline Hospice 6520 Pleasant Valley Road Diamond Springs, CA 95619 Attention: Volunteer Department You can handwrite or type your letters. Some have typed and printed out multiple copies of a letter, providing a handwritten signature. That is great. We have business envelopes available for letters. We wanted to give you some suggestions for how to start: Focus on the positive. Some ideas: the internet is full of stories about people rising above the current situation. What is blooming in your yard? Did your dog do something funny now that people are home all day? Have you read a good book or found something interesting on Netflix? You get the idea. Isolation is difficult. Remind your letter recipient that they have the support of their gifted Snowline care team continuing each day. No COVID19 or terminal illness talk. We want to alleviate stress. Some have asked if they could include photos. Yes! But no people - just a pretty view or your adorable animals. Here is a sample letter: Hello, On behalf of Snowline, I wanted to reach out and say hello. We are all staying home these days, but I am glad to have a chance to let you know that we are thinking of you and that your Snowline care team is here for you when you have a need. Were you able to see the storm yesterday? As I looked out my window the weather went from bright sunshine to clouds darkening the sky, to a WILD burst of wind and hail and almost snow. It was very dramatic, and I loved it. It smells so fresh now that the rain has come, and the daffodils and iris seem to have weathered the storm just fine. Our cat is very confused to have all of us home working. She keeps walking through the house with the feline equivalent of a frown on her face. But then she curls up in my lap as I work, and all is right in both of our worlds. Remember: you are part of the Snowline family and we are here for you. Take care, Joe Community Member

  • Words Alive Scholarship Workshop Facilitator

    Do you want to make a different in your community? Help at-risk youth gain career skills! We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who wish to facilitate a one-time, 1-hour skill-building workshop for our 2019-2020 WAWS scholarship recipients. Potential workshop topics include but are not limited to: transfer planning, interview skills and prep, health insurance literacy, tax literacy, cover letter writing, career planning, portfolio building, LinkedIn, networking, state and federal job application basics, body language, internship/job search, mental health and self-care tips, and more. Access to higher education is a considerable barrier for many low-income, underserved, and under-represented students. Recognizing this, Words Alive established the Words Alive Westreich Scholarship (WAWS) program to help alleviate some of the high-cost burden associated with continuing education. Applicants of WAWS are prior participants of the Words Alive Adolescent Book Group (ABG) program pursuing higher education. The ABG program supports approximately 250 at-risk youth each month within the San Diego county Juvenile Court and Community Schools system. Many of our students have experienced incredible hardships including homelessness, familial violence, and teen pregnancy but with the help of ABG are now on a path to success. Through the ABG program, these students find a love of reading and identify goals for success that often involves the pursuit of higher education. In addition to receiving a financial stipend, WAWS scholarship winners are paired with a Words Alive mentor and offered the opportunity to attend skill-building workshops throughout the year including resume building, interview skills, and financial literacy. Goals and outcomes: Facilitators will provide a 1-hour workshop designed to provide general awareness, instruction, relevant documents, examples, and hands-on practice for a life and/or career enhancing skill. Ideal Facilitators Should: Be comfortable working with youth Be culturally sensitive to the diverse backgrounds of our students Have reliable transportation Have a positive attitude Hours and location: Facilitators will present a one-time, 1-hour workshop to youth mentees and their mentors. Workshops will take place virtually until further notice. If you are interested in this program or know of someone that may be interested, please contact Robyn Grand at robyn@wordsalive.org at your earliest convenience.

  • Fairfax, VA: Help Children Learn How to Read in Their Homes as a Curriculum Content Developer

    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. The American Youth Literacy Foundation has 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 of 2019), 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 takes just 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 America's children who have been in the public school system for 6 years or more, 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, which teaches children how to read in an average of just 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in about the same time. And this is where you come in. 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; it is well underway 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, in order 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 mastery teams. 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. Our "Curriculum Content Development" Team Leads will be- 1) Ideating games and user experiences that reinforce reading skills, while introducing children to a world of learning. 2) Our stated goal at the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and the purpose of the FUNetix Literacy App, is to teach children HOW to read, to make them "lifelong readers," to free them from a life of illiteracy, to ensure that they will NEVER fall back into illiteracy, and to show them that they can LEARN ANYTHING if they step through the portal of reading! And we do ALL of this in about 12 hours of total instruction time. There's much more to tell. You can read more about our story and about us on our current website at www.YouthLit.org. We have much to do to complete the final 25% of the app, the fun part, where the kids get to explore and learn and imagine. But right now, 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 Curriculum Content Development Team Leads will - 1) Help develop and design approximately 300-500 screens of the FUNetix Literacy App. T 2) The screens will contain games, activities, stories, non-fiction exploration and more. 3) Creating this content will require deep collaboration with the other team members mentioned above and will require strong educational curriculum development experience, strategic and creative thinking, excellent planning and communications skills and creative prototyping skills. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity, to be one of the three leads for our Curriculum Content Development Team, please send us a cover letter and resume, to HR@YouthLit.org. We are looking for- 1) Intelligent, creative, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals with significant curriculum development and educational experience, preferably knowledgeable of children in the target age range of 6-9 years old. 2) 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. 3) 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, to help them get through this COVID-19 setback, and help them surge 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

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 Mastery 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 Mastery 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 Mastery 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
