  • Web Wizard Needed to Create Innovative Interface

    We are looking for talented web wizards to create and maintain the App for our nonprofit, "Sponsor Humanity, Inc." The concept for Sponsor Humanity was inspired by the impact of COVID-19. Our vision is to create an innovative interface that will directly connect people to request and offer resources in order to meet the basic needs of food and utility bills in this time when so many have lost their income due to the covid19 crisis (and in general as the distribution of wealth in the U.S. leaves so many people feeling marginalized and without access to the resources they need). It differs from mutual aid and "Next Door" networks in two ways: 1) This platform will be cutting-edge, current, and fresh, while also fun and easy to use. This interface will directly connect people; they can create a profile as a sponsor or recipient, and choose who they connect with. 2) There will be an option for "energy exchange" in which people can offer a service, craft, etc. in exchange for their support. This reflects and nurtures a paradigm shift in which people can offer something other than money to meet their basic needs in times of financial instability. In addition to the platform described above, there is a broader vision for Sponsor Humanity, Inc. to support other similar endeavors to innovatively connect human beings for the purpose of co-creating a better world; a world whose values reflect compassion, kindness, and generosity, as well as sharing our gifts, be they financial or otherwise. If this project feels inspiring to you, please reach out. We are very excited to find the right, talented people who can help bring this vision to fruition!

  • 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.

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

    Would you like to help supply a deployed chaplain items to assit 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 the 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.

  • Android Kotlin Developer (TreeTracker App)

    with GREENSTAND

    Millions find their next meal by cutting down the forests, a priceless resource that cools the earth and creates oxygen. GreenStand is working on a TreeTracker project to reverse the cycle. We have built a functioning prototype and planted thousands of trees to test our system. Now we need your help as we take this to the next level and share it with tree planting organizations around the world. We are expecting millions and millions of trees in the near future. If you are looking for a place where your skills can have an impact on poverty and climate change... stop by this open-source community and help out with an issue, or a bug or two. The project is creating a transparent link to trees/planters while collecting valuable data on tree planting efforts. Once implemented this data-driven system will help us find ways to make living trees more profitable while creating jobs by linking funds to plant trees where our globe needs them the most. Success will be achieved when, for those who survive by clearing the forests, planting and protecting trees will be more profitable than cutting them down.

  • 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.

Anti-poverty impact-investable housing through equity rather than debt is achieved by separating appreciation value from utilization value of residential assets.

Wide use of this innovation in housing affordability could provide access to homes for a substantial fraction of the population who cannot currently be housed in existing markets within regions with growing economies set in geographically limited spaces. By bringing equity sharing agreement to scale, market rate capital can subsidize affordability anywhere in which land constraints are significant barriers, such as islands, bays and due to topography such as mountains. Under such conditions, where home appreciation proves steady historically, pooled equity is 100 times more leveraged - as market rate capital becomes self-subsidizing when invested in affordable home fractional ownership.https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ir2zHUPWWcGG1Yc6omBxkAbhqc1CXGPu/view?usp=sharing https://docs.google.com/document/d/1AH8I9hf9olSJzPH1Y7GHycOio95KfXye6zzd3eD8bCA/edit?usp=sharing , Radical Collaboration: Results of Hackathon 1 http://blog.reframeit.com/service-learning-and-skilled-volunteering/ About CrowdDoing.world: CrowdDoing is leveraging micro-leadership, service learning & virtual multi-disciplinary collaboration to achieve systemic change .

  • Remote Companionship - Session Facilitator

    HomeAgain VR is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven community that offers human connection through shared virtual experiences. Our platform allows participants and volunteers to chat with one another while exploring the world, visiting museums, seeing wildlife, and more. We are a channel for uplifting and positive social interactions, which we believe can improve the health, wisdom, and happiness of people everywhere. Accessibility and inclusiveness are at the core of our mission, and we strive to make our program easy to use for people of all ages, income levels, and physical abilities. Many of our current customers are residents of assisted living communities. We are seeking a volunteer who will serve as a session facilitator, a necessary role for making our volunteers and users feel supported and valued. Since our virtual sessions are one-on-one, scheduled appointments, it is essential that we respect the time of everyone involved. The facilitator's role is to ensure that the sessions happen on time as scheduled and to provide logistical support to our users. This will include: Following up with volunteers and users who don't show up for their sessions Finding a backup volunteer if the scheduled volunteer cancels at the last minute Answering questions about scheduling Offering basic help if someone is having trouble connecting to our platform We are an early-stage startup, so your work as a session facilitator will likely shape our processes moving forward. We are always looking for new ideas and suggestions for streamlining our program to reach more people while requiring less manual work. If you are interested in playing this key role in pioneering our program, please let us know!

  • Graphic design help needed

    Since the beginning of the Covid-19 quarantine, Cleveland Opera Theater has been making an effort to respond to the needs of our community by providing virtual and downloadable content for all ages. While we have content, we do not have a graphic designer on staff, nor do we have the budget to hire someone (we're REALLY small, and Covid has taken quite a toll on our resources). We would love a volunteer (or a couple) who are willing to help create the designs for our upcoming Opera Explorers program downloads as well as a booklet for our programs bookable by libraries and community organizations. We will also be running a program during the month of October aimed at teaching high schoolers the parallels between opera and hip-hop, and we will be in need of a recruitment flier to send out the week of Labor Day. Notes: > For Opera Explorers, you would not need to reinvent the wheel - simply mimic the design of the first release in subsequent releases, changing the content for each. The next one is set to go out on September 22nd. All the content is ready, but it needs to be designed! The first release is viewable at ClevelandOperaTheater.org/explorer, so you can get an idea of the project. > For the Programming Guide, the design can be as simple or complicated as you want - this would be an excellent project for someone looking to round out their portfolio. The goal is to develop something similar to this: https://arts-inspiredlearning.org/resource-guide/ (but we have far fewer programs, so it would be a far smaller project). > The recruitment flier is super simple - we're just hoping for something visually engaging to a high school audience. It would be REALLY awesome if this was made "template-able," so we could reuse it on our own in the future. The biggest issue for us is that no one has consistent access to any form of "real" software, so most design is done by a non-graphic designer in PowerPoint, Canva, or a similar program. This is, again, a great project if you need to add to your portfolio. In a dream world, we'd love to find someone willing to volunteer on a regular basis to help out with fliers and small needs - or large needs if you so desire. Our website is currently being redesigned and updated (when you visit, you'll probably see a big difference between the home page and all other pages), and we have been working on improving our social media branding over the past few months. If any or all of these projects are of interest, please contact Megan at mthompson@clevelandoperatheater.org to express your interest. Please specify which project(s) as well as whether you're interested in a short-term or long-term opportunity.

    Do you have free time? Have you been practicing social distancing and CDC recommended precautions? Do you have a car/transportation? Are you over 18 years old? If you answered "yes!" to these questions then donate some of your time to help San Francisco seniors at The Sequoias Retirement Community receive essential groceries and food during the COVID-19 crisis. Residents at The Sequoias in SF are at high-risk for the COVID-19 infection. Residents are not allowed to leave the building due to COVID-19, and if they do, they are forced to quarantine in their room for 14 days. These seniors need immediate help! Can you lend a helping hand and help Sequoia seniors survive and thrive during this difficult time? Helping Hands is a non-profit organization created to slow the spread of COVID-19 through tech-enabled, community volunteerism. We connect people who are most at-risk with those who can safely deliver critical items and provide various forms of assistance. Our community volunteers deliver groceries, medicine, and other necessary supplies to empower everyone to stay healthy and be as responsible as they can be. Sign up to volunteer on the Helping Hands website and you can start helping immediately. Sequoia seniors requesting help will appear on your personal dashboard and you can select which request you would like to help with. You'll then receive a text including the requestor's phone number so you can reach out and coordinate directly. Coordinate in advance which method of payment works best for who you're helping. After you shop, you'll do a contact-free drop off at The Sequoias and the requestor will reimburse you for your purchases. We're in this together, and together, there's a lot of good we can do!

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

    SF and vicinitySan Francisco, CA 94108
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Have you ever wanted to do something AMAZING to change the world but didn't know where to start? Here is an opportunity to help underprivileged children, to help under-served children, to help ALL children displaced from school by COVID-19, to help close the opportunity gap in America, by closing the education gap, by closing the literacy gap that looms large, like an impassable crevasse, separating the haves from the have-nots, the rich, the almost rich, the upper-middle class, even the middle class, from the more than 100 million lower class, lower middle class, working-class poor, impoverished and underprivileged Americans. We are looking for ONE, a very special person, who has the skills, expertise, experience, passion, and time to be part of something amazing that is about to fundamentally change the lives of millions of children. Right now, millions of children have no hope; but soon, they will have the opportunity to learn how to read, which, in turn, will open a window to education and to a world of potential for them that, not only, has never been opened before, but that has never even been seriously contemplated as a potential reality. What we are talking about is an adaptive learning, gamified smartphone app, called FUNetix (www.FUNetix.org), that can teach children how to read, in their own home, in an average of just 12 hours of total instruction time! We are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for 12 years using a patented "reading decoding system!" We have been developing this app for about two years (but started the concept and working on prototypes almost five years ago); and this year we will launch this incredible smartphone app in the App Store and on Google Play at or around Thanksgiving, 2020, to help save millions of children from a lifetime of illiteracy! Already, there are millions of children who are struggling to learn how to read. Already, there are millions more who have given up on reading and are destined to go through life either completely illiterate or with only semi-literate skills at best. And now with the displacement of 55 million children from school, for an indeterminate amount of time, the loss of reading capacity of the next generation, and the "seemingly incessant," "widening of the gap," presents a new "crisis moment" in American education and a very real threat to the future success (in school, and in life) of millions of young children. But we believe there IS a way to bridge that gap, to make this a "watershed moment" instead of a crisis moment, by stopping that gap from widening. Universal access to literacy through FUNetix will close the opportunity gap by closing the education gap by closing the literacy gap to near zero. What happens after that, can only be imagined: a virtuous cycle of communication and learning, perhaps, between teachers and students, in ALL of America’s schools and classrooms. And what happens after that? An entire generation of nearly 100% literate young people of all races, religions, creeds, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds will, quite inevitably, reform the social fabric of the American landscape for the good, and for the benefit of innumerable generations to come. According to the U.S. Government’s "Annual Report Card," more than 20 million children in grades 3-12, in America's public schools today, can't read at anything close to a proficient level! Translated into "English," that means they are either completely illiterate ("Below Basic:" 24%), or functionally illiterate/ semi-literate ("Basic:" 43%). Fully more than half of all America’s public-school-educated children have between zero and minimal literacy skills. This travesty exists in spite of the fact that, as a nation, we spend more than $11,000 per year, per student, to deliver a public school "education." Just over 24% of all students drop out of public school, most of them in 9th grade. That's 1 million per year! With the rise of the smartphone and the amazing penetration of this powerful tool, even into the most impoverished communities, we feel that the answer we have been searching for IS in the form of an app. So for the past several years, we have been working to convert our amazing reading curriculum, which teaches children how to read in just 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in about the same time. And this is where you come in. Since the year 2000, America has "graduated" more than 20 million illiterate "students" into the U.S. economy, into our socio-economic and socio-political marketplace of ideas without hope, and without basic survival skills. Without literacy, and without education, these young people have practically zero chance at fulfilling their personal potential; and economic security is simply unattainable. That’s all about to change! The American Youth Literacy Foundation, dba FUNetix, is a 12-year-old, nationwide, charitable 501 (c) (3) non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program in the regional Philadelphia, Central New Jersey area and we still provide some one-on-one tutoring. But our focus has always been on finding a scalable solution to the literacy crisis in America. With the rise of the smartphone and the amazing penetration of this incredibly powerful, and ubiquitously critical tool (currently estimated at 80%), even into the most impoverished communities in America, we realized several years ago, that the answer to scalability we had been searching for, was going to be in the form of an app. So for the past several years, we have been working to convert our amazing reading curriculum, which teaches children how to read in an average of just 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in about the same time. And this is where you come in. The curriculum that our app is based on is a patented reading decoding system, and is so effective at teaching children how to read, that it usually only takes 4-6 hours for them to understand the basic reading-learning system, (which includes a FUN, but intensive introduction to all 44 sounds of the English language, and the basic concept of blending sound symbols into words), and another 4-6 hours for them to reach a 2nd-grade reading level! On, or about, Thanksgiving, 2020, we will deliver this incredible reading app to the App Store and Google Play, and with it, an end-user experience (the UX) to millions of children in America's inner cities and rural counties, in the barrios and the suburbs, and on the American Indian reservations, and everywhere in-between, where illiteracy is endemic and education and opportunity are, tragically, not universally attainable. FUNetix will make a profound impact on millions of individual lives, while also profoundly effecting major social improvement on a massive scale, to bring about real, sustainable change in underprivileged and fully privileged communities and classrooms alike, wherever illiteracy and poor literacy looms. Literacy as a path to education and opportunity for millions of American children, and potentially billions of children worldwide, is imminently near. Through FUNetix, the American Youth Literacy Foundation is making English accessible to everyone! The curriculum consists of more than 2,000, individually narrated screens. We first teach children the 44 sounds of the English language. Then we teach them how to "map," or, associate symbols to each of these sounds. We teach them how to blend those sound symbols and those sounds together to make words and sentences and, ultimately, stories. It usually takes them only 4 hours to learn how to read our super child-friendly, phonetic English code called 21E. Over the next 4 hours, children learn how to use those sound symbols as a "diacritic" pronunciation guide to help them decode ANY English words. We call this the FUNetix Magic Decoder because it works like magic: the magic symbols above the words reveal the hidden sounds of EVERY English word! FUNetix, the team, is a mission-focused, distributed network of currently, 51 people (and still growing), each contributing between 5 and 65 hours of volunteer time per week. The FUNetix organization is organized into 12 teams including Project Management, Graphic Design, Curriculum Development, UX/Beta Testing, Engineering, Community Outreach and Distribution, Web Development, Funding, Marketing, Communications, and Public Relations, and others. There's much more to tell. You can read more about our story, and about us, at www.FUNetix.org and www.YouthLit.org. We have much more to do to get ready for our Thanksgiving launch! Right now, we are looking for 1 very special person who has everything we mentioned above, passion, expertise, time, etc. to join our team and help us launch this app in 2020. Our lead project managers will help build the fundamental infrastructure upon which the "product launch," as well as all members of our organization involved in the product launch, will depend, for effective, collaborative communication and productivity. The Lead Project Management Team will hire future project managers for specific tasking. If you are interested in becoming a "task-specific" project manager, please also contact us and we will file your resume appropriately for a later date. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity to be one of the three members of our Lead Project Management Team, please send us a cover letter and resume to hr@YouthLit.org. We are looking for intelligent, creative, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals with significant project management experience and with experience using project management software. This is a complex undertaking and we are looking for highly proficient and organized professionals. Just to be clear, our organization is an all-volunteer, extended network comprised of individuals from around the country who collaborate virtually. Individuals interested in this position must have the confidence and ability to continue to build and manage this kind of extended network using select networking tools and platforms. Thank you! We hope this opportunity finds you at the right place and the right time in your career to make a difference and an impact, in an amazing way, for millions of children who are waiting for someone, or something, to lead them out of a life of impoverishment and into a future of unlimited possibility and potential. We look forward to hearing from you and speaking with you about the future of literacy in America. Mr. R. Kali Woodward Founding, Executive Director

  • San Francisco: Help us Launch the FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App as a Funding Team Lead

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.

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. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity, please send us a cover letter and resume to HR@YouthLit.org. We are looking for intelligent, creative, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals, who have the time, energy, expertise and desire to make a true difference and be part of something amazing! This is a complex undertaking and we are looking for highly proficient and organized professionals. Individuals interested in this position must have the experience and ability to work in a virtual environment using select networking, file sharing, 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, to add value, in an amazing way, to help millions of children who are waiting for someone, or some thing, to lead them out of a life of impoverishment and into a future of unlimited possibility and potential. We look forward to hearing from you and speaking with you about the future of literacy in America. Mr. R. Kali Woodward Founding, Executive Director

  • San Francisco, Ca and vicinity: Home Schooling Just Got Better

    San Francisco and vicinitySan Francisco, CA 94108
    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. Kali Woodward Founding Executive Director

  • Street To Beach Cleanups - Earth Heroes Needed in Oakland!

    Multiple LocationsOakland, CA 94612
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Our goal is to get as many Earth Heroes as possible to cleanup a location of their liking and inspiring others, while staying safe and respecting County and State orders. What are the "Street to Beach" cleanups? Simply put, it is a cleanup by yourself or with family and/or housemates with whom you have been sheltering in place. It can be around your neighborhood, at the beach, in a needy area, or anywhere actually. You could even "adopt" a specific location in need and care for it on a regular basis. Please Note: If you do a cleanup, you are doing it on your own accord and personally accepting any and all risks. Why should we do this? Neighborhood and street cleanups are fun and rewarding outdoor activities for you and your family or your other quarantine partners. Picking up litter from the streets keeps it from flowing into the ocean via our storm drains. We are now finding lots of litter, plastic bags, wrappers, disposable gloves, masks and food containers on our beaches and throughout the neighborhoods. How can we help? It is very easy! Make sure you have all your supplies ready, and go out! Don’t forget to let us know how much trash you collected so that we can add it to our total. Remember every single piece count! Follow these 4 steps to have a safe and fun cleanup: 1. Go on our website to sign the online waiver 2. Grab your supplies (bucket, gloves, pick up sticks) 3. Go outside near your home 4. Record the trash you got via the Clean Swell app (or more ways to log the trash on our website) Thank you for caring! Pacific Beach Coalition

At the same time, through our deep and wide connection with mainland China and Taiwan, we have access to many varieties of premium tea which enable us to seamlessly combine the value of tea and wisdom of Zen in our teaching. We will provide free Meditative Tea Tasting classes at various senior centers and outside organizations, as well as hold our own weekly Saturday Tea Tastings at Universal Chan. We are looking for volunteers to assist these classes. Most of our volunteer opportunities for the tea classes require you to work for around 3.5 hrs long and typically take place in the morning or afternoon. We will show you the volunteer schedule and event dates once we meet each other in person for our first introductory meeting. Job description: The volunteer needs to arrive at Universal Chan (445 Colusa Ave., Kensington, CA 94707) on time. We will provide transportation to the senior centers. The work includes helping to set up the tea tasting implements in the classroom, setting up and decorating the tables, assisting in serving the tea during class, steeping tea, and cleaning up the implements after class. The total work time for each class varies from 4.5 hours to 8 hours depending on which event you sign up for.

  • Tattoo Removal Clinic Admin Staff

    1000 Gateway AveSan Pablo, CA 94806
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    We run a friendly laser tattoo removal program in San Pablo the second Saturday of each month from 7:30 AM to 12:00 PM. We serve anyone who seeks our services no matter the reason. It is the only clinic of its kind in the area offering a flat fee that allows as many tattoos (and colors) as the nurse is able to treat in five minutes. We love our clinic and our clients. The administrative portion of the clinic is staffed by mostly volunteers, and we need to expand our volunteer footprint to ensure we keep staffing levels appropriately supportive. It's a five-hour commitment from 7:30 to 12:30. We feed our volunteers croissant egg sandwiches, and we have fruit and donuts available for staff and clients. Clients come here because they feel welcome and it's a fraction of the cost. We have been able to enroll a good portion of our clients into grants to lower or eliminate the cost in an effort to divert that money to more critical needs they may have (e.g., food, healthcare, gas). This is about transforming lives, and it takes only coming to this clinic once to see why I volunteer my time one Saturday a month. All volunteers complete an application through our partner, the City of San Pablo, and complete a LiveScan. We then HIPAA train each person, and begin training for specific roles. The training is not onerous; we keep it reasonable. Roles include registration, photography, payment, progress notes, and check out. We would welcome anyone who could commit to two (2) or more clinics per year, and provide great staff t-shirts. Thank you for considering our clinic.

These are curbside drop offs-there will be no contact with the residents. Need equipment: Volunteers must have a valid driver’s license, insurance, and a truck, van, or vehicle capable of shuttling 150 - 200 individually packaged meals. Volunteers must wear a face mask and gloves. Dollies and hand trucks are useful, but not required.

    The mission at Ace Makerspace is promoting and encouraging technical, scientific and artistic skills through social collaboration, education, and individual projects. We serve 1100+ people a year with affordable and free classes, scholarships and community offerings. We bring a unique community offering to North Oakland with shared shop spaces and an inclusive community. With our recent growth, we are finding the need to transition the roles of our directors to a more traditional one. Directors Desired Contribution: WORK, WISDOM, OR WEALTH Any ONE of these contributions is incredibly meaningful! WORK. This is the opportunity to craft your engagement. A meaningful contribution is usually from 15-20 hours a month. Examples of possibilities are taking on grant applications or fulfilling operational needs. The latter will ensure that as a director you have your finger on the pulse of the membership. WISDOM. Professional HR, legal or business skills are especially valuable and consulting contributions meaningful. At Ace Makerspace this is especially true as we are in a transitional phase after a period of rapid growth. WEALTH. A significant financial contribution would allow Ace to sustain and extend programs and grow the infrastructure toward sustainability. Wealth isn’t just a check though. Leveraging an established professional network to ensure Ace has the right opportunities in the community would also be significant. Directors Commitment Directors at Ace Makerspace commit to a 1-year term of service. This includes a once monthly board meeting, onboarding activities, and associated tasks.

  • Join Our Advocacy Team!

    Downtown Walnut CreekWalnut Creek, CA 94597
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Join our volunteer advocacy team! The Alzheimer's Association is leading the way to end Alzheimer's and all other dementia - by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and maximizing quality care and support. With help from volunteer advocates like you, we've passed critical legislation and increased federal research funding five-fold since 2011. But our work isn’t done and we need dedicated advocates like you to build on this success in Congress and in every state capital. We’ll train you to advocate in a variety of ways, some of which take just an hour or two every few months. Whatever your experience and availability, we’re eager to have you on our advocacy team! Alzheimer's Congressional Team Members share their own unique stories, relationships and skills to help educate and engage their elected officials in creating a world without Alzheimer's. Requirements: Advocacy volunteers must have a direct, personal experience with Alzheimer's or other dementia, and be willing to share it with elected officials and others. Statistics and reason simply aren’t enough; it takes authentic, deeply felt, one-to-one communication from constituents like you to move the hearts and minds of members of Congress and state legislators. We will show you how to tell your personal story in ways that build bridges and create positive change. Please be sure to describe your connection to Alzheimer's disease in your response; applications without this information may not receive a response. Please also provide your home address, so that we can determine if you live in a legislative district where we are currently seeking volunteers. What Do Advocacy Volunteers Do? Advocates help advance Alzheimer's research, care and support by: 1. Cultivating positive relationships with their Member of Congress, state legislators and staff. 2. Meeting with their legislators in the district several times per year; while physical distancing is in place, meetings are being held by phone and video. 3. Proactively taking steps to interact with their legislators about Alzheimer’s throughout the year by attending events, writing personal letters and emails, writing letters to the editor or interacting on social media. 4. Reporting all legislative interactions on our advocacy website, www.alzimpact.org. 5. Participating in regular meetings (currently being held by video) to share information and coordinate activities with Alzheimer's Association staff and other advocacy volunteers in your area. 6. All advocates are encouraged to attend our annual Advocacy Day at the State Capitol in Sacramento in February and our National Advocacy Forum in Washington, DC in the spring. Ambassadors are expected to attend the Advocacy Forum and State Champions are expected to attend State Advocacy Day. To learn more about the Forum, visit www.alz.org/forum. Please be sure to describe your connection to Alzheimer's disease in your response; applications without this information may not receive a response. Please also provide your home address, so that we can determine if you live in a legislative district where we are currently seeking volunteers. Thank you for your interest in helping to create a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia!

  • Sew PPE for Eden Area Healthcare Workers and Our Community

    21455 Birch St.Hayward, CA 94541
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    We need volunteers who live within the Eden Area (Hayward, Castro Valley, San Leandro, San Lorenzo.) ,own a sewing machine, have thread and know basic sewing skills. The Eden Area Interfaith Council has gathered volunteers throughout our community to help sew face masks and surgical caps for healthcare workers, homeless shelters, frontline workers and any group in need of protection from the Covid Virus. Since the beginning of the quarantine, we supplied over 3,000 fabric face masks, 700 surgical caps, 100 face shields, and 3,000 hand made, paper, disposable face mask. Though the media reports that the hospitals are receiving more PPE, there is still a big demand for what we are creating. Nurses report to us that they are not consistently receiving the protection they need. Our face mask are designed with a pocket for a HEPA filter and a metal nose wire to shape the mask to the wearer's face. Since they are washable, nurses and other healthcare workers know that they receive a product that can be reused. Our efforts to meet this crisis has been awarded by the East Bay Community Energy Group a $5,000 grant to continue to meet the needs of our community. However, our volunteers have been working since March and fatigue is beginning to set in for some. Some of our seamsters will take a few days or weeks off to rejuvenate. For others, personal needs and economic demands have force them to quit. We supply all pre-cut fabric. We deliver supplies in a ziplock bag to your doorstep to adhere to social distancing. The fabic has been heated in a dryer to hopefully remove any contaminates. For your own peace of mind, we suggest you wipe the ziplock down with soap or alcohol. Once you've sewn the PPE, just put the finished work back into the ziplock. Place it on your doorstep. Call us to pick it up. You never need to leave your home. We do ask that you make a commitment of sewing 20 pieces of PPE to make it worth our while to make deliveries and do the return trip for pickup. WE DO NOT DELIVER OUTSIDE THE EDEN AREA. If you are concerned about having enough skills to work with us, you can view videos on how to sew our PPE designs on our website - edeninterfaith.weebly.com. If you need more assistance, tech support numbers are also found on our site. Please join us in our efforts to keep our frontline workers and the most vulnerable community members safe from the Covid virus.
