  • Web Designer for Television-Based Education

    ep5 is a §501(c)(3) charitable foundation producing educational programming for public television and radio. This is provided at no charge to public broadcasting stations and other venues. VOLUNTEER IN WEB DESIGN The ep5 Educational Broadcasting Foundation needs an experienced and imaginative website designer who can distill our ancient and positively prehistoric existing website into a much smaller and striking contemporary exercise in effective communication. We're a not-for-profit producer of educational content for public broadcasting, including radio and television documentaries and an informational science series. Our current website, which has temporarily been taken down for overhaul, is heavy on detail but pretty light on visual appeal. We know what we'd like to communicate, but we simply don't have the talent in-house for making it happen. Our organization's objective is the production of genuinely educational television aimed at those under-served by existing resources. For instance, one proposed television series would enable young people without hope of access to college to learn software development in a major programming language as a vocational skill. We need a web presence which will explain whom we are and what we do . . . and accomplish this clearly and efficiently. Ideally, we prefer simple elegance and visual clarity over flashy web-page gimmickry. Please note that this volunteer work is strictly non-commercial. Also, we do not seek someone learning the ropes and having little experience. We can provide several third-party websites as examples of the style, look, and feel that we would like for our own, although the volunteer who remakes our website will have ample creative freedom. This opportunity complies fully with anti-pandemic practices.

  • Write Thoughtful Letters to Those Feeling Isolated.

    With COVID cases on the rise again, many people in long-term care facilities, such as hospitals and senior homes are in dire need of human connection and compassion. Plus One Foundation wants YOUR help to connect with these folks and let them know they're cared for. Due to the pandemic, many individuals with chronic illnesses have been unable to leave their house, leading to greater levels of loneliness and isolation. This is why Plus One Foundation started our penpal program: to provide heartfelt, handwritten letters and drawings of encouragement to these individuals to brighten their days and ensure they know they're in our thoughts! So far, we have sent 395 letters, and we'd love to send more with your help! How it works: The process is simple: you sign up here on VolunteerMatch, and we will send you an email to organize and match you to as many pen pals as you'd like to send letters to. Volunteer hours available for this opportunity upon request. We are expecting volunteers to send at least two letters every month, but you can feel free to contact your pen pal(s) more often if you'd like! Please note that pen pals are under no obligation to write back, although some may definitely love to-- in case you would specifically like your penpal to respond, let us know and we are happy to coordinate that. Sign up today and spread love to those who need it most. Questions? Comments? Concerns? Don't hesitate to reach out to us at plusonepenpals@gmail.com.

We expect that you will: - Participate in one board call a month. - Make a $1000 personal donation each year that you serve, and seek other philanthropically-minded individuals and companies to do the same. -Be a part of the Grant Selection Committee and take an active part in grant applications and awards. - Work with the other board members to collectively raise awareness for the cause through online campaigns, experiences and/or events as deemed necessary. We are a team of smart, dedicated (and fun!) people who believe that a loving family is a basic human right. If this sounds like you, we’d love to talk! 100% of the donations we receive will turn in to adoption grants! We are structured in such a way that we don't take percentages or dollar amounts out of the donations we receive to fund our operating expenses.

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

    Help a child in foster care!! Voices for Children Montgomery in Maryland is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to advocate for the timely placement of abused and neglected children in safe, permanent homes and for the highest quality of their care while they are under the court's jurisdiction. This mission is accomplished through the recruitment, training and on-going support and supervision of volunteers from the community who are appointed by the Juvenile Court judges to serve as Court Appointed Special Advocates for these children. CASA Volunteers serve as voices for one of our most vulnerable populations - abused and neglected children. Volunteer advocates must be at least 21 years of age, have a clear criminal record, and complete CASA's training and screening process. Upon successful completion of the training and screening process, the new volunteer is assigned to a child. Once assigned to a child, the volunteer advocate works with the child and gathers information from everyone in the child's life including the child's biological parents, foster parents, medical and mental health professionals, social workers, therapists, teachers, and attorneys. CASA volunteers meet with their case supervisors on a monthly basis and they work together to formulate written recommendations to the Juvenile Court judges as to the child's best interests. CASA volunteers make critical differences in the lives of the children they serve in a multitude of ways by ensuring that each child receives the services needed to address their medical, emotional and educational needs as well as securing a safe and permanent home in the shortest time possible. We are currently recruiting volunteers. There are no special educational or professional requirements, but advocates must be at least 21 years old and live in the greater Montgomery County area. Do you have 10-15 hours per month available to make a difference in a child's life? Please contact our office at (301) 340-7458.

Volunteers serve as a friend and companion who can visit once a week to share stories and check in. Visits may include opportunities to play board games, cook, read, take a walk, or chat about current events. Volunteers typically spend 1 hour per week with their client. Current volunteer opportunities with Friendly Visitor are remote. Due to Covid-19, in-person visits are suspended but older adults are in greater need of companionship than ever before! Volunteers will be matched with a Friendly Visitor client and expected to complete a virtual visit or phone call once a week for up to 1-hour.

Our organization is seeking 2-3 volunteers who can volunteer an hour a week to visit with or just place a phone call to a senior living in their community. Volunteers will be trained and a police clearance background check conducted on anyone entering a home of a senior. This is a rewarding and enjoyable experience for our volunteers as well as the senior being visited. The seniors our volunteers meet often have led interesting lives that would like to share their stories with you. The time and frequency of the visits or calls can be flexible. Would you be interested in getting to know a lonely senior?

    Do you enjoy yard work, working with your hands, helping others, being outdoors and possibly taking family members along to help? Chore Corps could be the perfect fit for you! As the weather begins to change, we are finding our elderly and disabled Care Receivers are hoping to have lawns cut, flower beds mulched and weeds pulled before fall and winter settle in. We also know that they would love to have leaves raked, snow shoveled and more -as the seasons begin to change. These volunteer assignments are an excellent way to volunteer as a family, spend time outdoors and truly make a difference in the life or lives of your neighbors in your community. There are also opportunities to make small home repairs on the outside of the houses of some of our other Care Receivers who cannot afford a handy man. We are hoping that once COVID-19 restrictions are eased on a more permanent basis, that we can also have volunteers help our Care Receivers with home repair projects indoors, as well as light housekeeping or cooking opportunities. We will definitely be sure to update this description as changes happen and we are able to do these things again. Social distancing and other safety measures observed.
