  • Medical Compliance Manager for remote pandemic ventilator

    with ArdenVent

    We are a non-profit organization building an infrastructure to develop, manufacture, distribute, and operate remote-controlled ventilators and oxygen concentrators that will also gather high-resolution treatment data for scientific research and treatment optimization. This is a great opportunity for somebody who wants to work with a dedicated team of engineers and providers to create groundbreaking technology. You have the opportunity to directly impact the quality and safety of this technology by following mostly simple (but long) instructions from regulatory bodies such as the FDA. You will get the chance to become highly qualified in the design and development process of medical devices which can be directly applied to the process in any other industry except for the much greater clarity to be gained in this field. For any engineer, experience with this level of process control and coordination is a highly valuable experience for your CV. Status report: We are finishing off some design elements of the mechanical parts of our system and finalizing the first iteration of our software. We have made a reasonable start with documenting our design and implementing the required document, quality and design control for medical approval and acquired tools that will support and automate the process. However, a lot still needs to be done Description: Since we plan to operate internationally we need a solid understanding of the most common medical regulations. Although the first iteration of the device should be considered a first-aid emergency device we are specifying it's functionalities for much more than that and ultimately in a future iteration would like to achieve ICU approval. Furthermore, there are not only mechanical safety regulations but we also must consider biometric data acquisition, data security, data privacy and software architecture regulations. As a result of this opportunity the equipment will be accepted much more readily among clinicians but we will also receive significantly more funding which will directly lead to many more lives protected. Tasks: assemble and lead a small team of volunteers to support you in the remaining tasks research regulatory aspects in our initial target countries but also from the FDA communicate the requirements with the developers create documentation in conjunction with the developers to be handed to regulatory institutions Approve and Quality Control documents handed to regulatory institutions Training and/or experience required: 5+ years of work experience Experience with industrial design control or medical regulatory compliance ideally with the FDA Ability to perceive technical details International viewpoint and ability to research foreign compliance regulations.

  • Grant Writer- Helping Teens Rebound Post Pandemic!

    Thompson Drive, a new non-profit youth development organization based in the Coney Island neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY, is seeking an experienced Grant Writer to help identify, write and apply for the agency's inaugural foundation and corporate grants. Thompson Drive was concieved prior to the Covid-19 pandemic as there was an extreme lack of resources for youth in this community. The pandemic has only heightened the needs of teenagers in this neighborhood especially with regard to the challenges of remote learning. Youth that were already struggling academically prior to the pandemic have found themselves falling even further behind in their education. Lack of positive social interaction with peers and non-family members has also created additional stresses for many Brooklyn youth. In our first year of service we have a goal of securing $50,000 from up to 10 foundations and corporate grantmakers who are willing to invest in our start-up operations. Tasks will include researching and assessing funders and drafting persuasive grant proposals. Strong writing and communication skills are required; previous grant writing experience is a must. We seek an experienced grants professional who is excited about our mission and about helping to put Thompson Drive on the road to success!

  • Join Our Board - A Great Way to Gain Experience

    We are looking for motivated and creative energetic people who can join a small board of dedicated people. It is a perfect chance to build up your resume! We are needing people with expertise in these areas: childcare fundraising/development board functioning construction/building/planning architecture ....... what is most important is love for kids and families. There is no charge for joining the board, but members are often asked to do some volunteer some time outside of the monthly meeting. We meet on the second Tuesday of every month from 6:30-8:30 (or earlier). We are now meeting on Zoom remotely. Trinity Child Development Center opened over 50 years ago in East Austin with the express purpose of reaching out to the neighborhood and meeting the needs of families. Right now that means that we protect a portion of our enrollment for children who are funded by workforce meaning that their families cannot afford to pay tuition. We also do fundraising so that we can support temporary situations where parents lose jobs and would have to drop out of childcare. We want to keep children in a safe, consistent environment. The Covid-19 virus has caused many people to struggle with childcare. We have worked hard to stay open, even when the stay at home orders were in place. Our regular enrollment is 48, but at one point we were serving only 10 children of first responders. Now we are back to having full enrollment and a long waiting list. As the pandemic has continued there has been more and more need for safe, reliable childcare. At the same time finances have been stretched and all of our teachers and director are under continuing stress. We have instituted strict mask policies and teachers are working twice as hard keeping things clean while feeling concerned for themselves and their own families. This year, although finances have been a challenge we have been helped greatly by PPP loans and assistance from the city. As time goes on we will need people who can help us with creative solutions with our budget. Grant writing and fundraisers have been important for keeping up with our goals. New ideas for fundraisers or experience in Grant Writing and ability to give time to it are fantastic! If you are interested let us know and you can visit (with zoom) our next board meeting. If you are still interested after observing and asking questions you can come to a second board meeting and we will have a vote to confirm your addition to the board.

    VIRTUAL VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY FOR HIGH SCHOOL & COLLEGE STUDENTS Conversations To Remember is looking for high school & college students who want to volunteer with our charity.

During the virtual visit, students don't have to be physically together, they can each be on their own device. Since COVID-19 these residents have been unable to leave the facilities or have many (if any) visitors. They are lonely, and enjoy speaking with students.

  • Change A Life - Mentor a Foster Youth

    Extraordinary Families is seeking adult mentors for current and former foster youth ages 16-26. Our Unlimited Possibilities for Youth (UP4Youth) program is dedicated to improving outcomes youth and young adults from foster care. One way we do this is by engaging mentors who serve as a consistent, stable adult presence available to provide guidance, uncover options for problem-solving, share information, and assist youth with building strategies for accomplishing important milestones that are essential for being successful adults. Far too often the term "foster youth" is regarded as synonymous with "troubled," "uncontrollable," or "flawed". Children and youth enter foster care because of exposure to trauma caused by abuse or neglect. Many youth have experienced multiple placements with foster families and/or have lived in group homes. Lacking the presence of consistent, caring adults undermines their stability and can contribute to a deficit in achievement of major developmental milestones. By the time these young people reach late teens and early adulthood, they are unprepared for independence. Mentoring is provided through a combination of group and individual enrichment activities. The role of the mentor is varied. A mentor may assist a youth to build life skills, attend a community or social event, plan for educational attainment, or obtain employment. The ultimate goal is to provide foster youth mentees with tools and resources to manage transitions required to become independent, self-sufficient, thriving adults. Adults wishing to serve the program as a mentor must meet the following criteria: Be at least 21 years of age Agree to a minimum one-year commitment to the program and to attend mentor trainings, as required Commit to spending a minimum of 6-8 hours a month and communicate weekly with matched youth Communicate regularly with the program staff and submit monthly activity reports Have access to an automobile or reliable transportation, current driver’s license, auto insurance, and clean DMV report Clean criminal history/Live Scan; never accused, arrested, charged, or convicted of child abuse or molestation Negative TB test result Free from alcohol or drug abuse Offers skills and abilities related to program objectives Extraordinary Families welcomes a diverse group of mentors, regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital or domestic partner status, political affiliation, or ancestry. We are seeking mentors with a wide variety of expertise, skills and experience who want to invest their time and talents to help a young person achieve his/her goals. Mentoring opportunities are available throughout LA County. Contact us to register to attend our next orientation. We look forward to meeting you!

We do so by analyzing scientific research and clinical evidence, gathering new evidence through data science and citizen science, and recommending to individuals optimal combinations of teas, tinctures , and powders that can be used to achieve each individual's mental health goals. We conduct this research with the goal of allowing people to make informed decisions about their health and to increase access to healthy stress-coping alternatives. These healthy coping mechanisms can reduce reliance on harmful self-medication practices such as alcohol abuse or behavior likely to lead to opioid addiction. Value Proposition: Tinctures, teas and powders from herbal medicine combinations can represent better risk/reward ratios Through citizen science and data science over time we have the aspirational goal to meet and exceed evidence parity with regards to evidence of effectiveness for herbal medicines for stress & anxiety compared with pharmaceuticals. That mission is attractive for people to participate in as its an opportunity for global collaboration to create increasingly usable natural medicine for stress and anxiety. E ach person can go upstream of their mental health challenges and adopt healthier coping mechanisms. The only way CrowdDoing.world can realize its impact potential is through virtual volunteers, service learners (http://blog.reframeit.com/service-learning-and-skilled-volunteering/), and micro-leaders ( https://real-leaders.com/leveraging-micro-leadership-to-make-aspirational-goals-achievable/ ) coming together. See this brief video about Micro-leadership at CrowdDoing ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhdB2YJ8Ocs&app=desktop ). Micro-leadership means that each person adopts a dimension of responsibility for a collective problem in our society through collaborating on that area creatively individually and together through social innovation.

  • Research Subjects any AGE with Passports - Protecting Kids Online!

    with DEFEND

    We are DEFEND - we are an incorporated volunteer-run not-for-profit organization in Canada. We are looking for help from ANYONE in the general public that has a passport. Did you know on Facebook in 2020, there were 20 million child sex abuse reports to NCMEC? This is alarming and something needs to be done to stop it. The government and Facebook refuse to make changes, in fact, Facebook just recently announced that they're developing an Instagram app for children under the age of 13!!!! PROJECT: We are developing a new social media site with age/ID verification built in from the ground up!! It's called 65square. Going to www.65square.com will take you to our organization's website (HelpUsDefend.com) currently but that will soon change. The launch of our site/apps are slated for spring 2022. You can follow the progress of the social media on Instagram currently: @65squareDOTcom We know that 65square will: Reduce risks for sharing of child sex abuse materials Reduce online bullying Reduce online scammers Reduce risks of child luring Increase online accountability TASK: One of the ways that people will verify on our system is by using the camera on their phone/device. Artificial intelligence (AI) will determine if the person logging in, is the person that is supposed to log in (so a 30-year old man can't log in as a 10-year old girl for example). The AI needs data to be trained so that we can make this system as accurate as it can be. We need people of ALL ages (children, teens, adults and elderly persons) to submit several face pictures (full body is fine but not necessary) of themselves or their family members IF they know how old they were in the picture. A variety of pictures (approximately 5-10 pictures total) at a variety of ages is requested. A closeup picture or scan of the person's passport picture is requested also (not a picture of the whole passport but just a closeup on the passport photo). There's a specific format for saving the file name of the photos as well. Please message for full details. Please submit only pictures of yourself or your child(ren). ALL PICTURES/data will be used only for training the AI system then they will be deleted. The pictures or data will NOT be made public at any point nor will be given to anyone outside of our team (and our team are under strict non-disclosure agreements to not share information given to them to anyone). This AI system and our login in general will protect children and vulnerable people. This system will be a first of its kind in the world! Your contribution will be extremely helpful to science, research and the development of this technology so we can help make a safer internet. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to message us! Thank you! -DEFEND Tech Team

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

    Communities of color are suffering disproportionately from COVID-19. Their death rates from this devastating virus are twice or 3 times the rate of wealthier communities. Nutrition is key to building your immune system and fighting off deadly viruses. Unfortunately, many communities of color live in "food deserts" - places where nutritious fresh fruits and vegetables are far away or too expensive. This is why Seeds in the Middle is focusing on schools and places in these food deserts, or food-insecure neighborhoods. We are seeking to build 10 farm stands with gardens in schools in central Brooklyn's poorest neighborhoods. One exciting project is at PS-IS 178 and Brooklyn Collegiate High School in Ocean Hill-Brownsville.

    Overview: Regents Prep Living Environment Science tutors work with seniors within the SBU college prep program, 1-on-1 or in small groups, to assist them in completing their high school graduation requirement to pass the NY State Regents Exams. Regents Exam topic areas cover the core academic subject areas (Math, History, Science, English); however, most students primarily need the extra support with Science. Tutors work with the same group of students every week. This provides tutors the opportunity to build relationships and to serve as a positive role model in youths' lives while also promoting the importance of education. When: Wednesdays 6:00pm - 8:00pm 1st Semester: mid September - mid January 2nd Semester: early February - early June Where: Boys Prep, 192 E 151st Street, 3rd Floor, The Bronx, NY 10451 Commitment: Tutors are asked to commit to teaching on Wednesdays for at least one semester (Sept-Jan or Feb-June). However, if a tutor would like to be more involved, he/she is always welcome. Many of our College Prep Tutors also volunteer as College Mentors to aid their students in navigating the college application process. Qualifications: South Bronx United is looking for highly motivated, energetic volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of South Bronx youth. Tutors should possess a strong grasp of at least one High School subject area and feel comfortable breaking down and explaining processes for problem solving. Our greatest need is typically for people with either strong Math or English skills; however, tutors are needed for all subject areas that are covered by the Regents Exams. Training: An orientation and training at the beginning of service will be run for all tutors to give general guidelines, tutoring tips and to go over the specific needs of the students. Additional training and "check ins" will be conducted intermittently throughout the course of the year. Benefits: In addition to helping provide the resources and support to allow under-served students to thrive in school, SBU is happy to connect with your school to see if your volunteer hours can work towards school service or academic requirements. Beyond Tutoring: The boys and girls participating in the program are also members of the South Bronx United Travel Soccer Teams. Tutors are welcome and encouraged to come out and see a game or get involved in a practice as SBU youth are extremely passionate about the sport and it’s a great way to connect with the kids.

  • Brooklyn: Help children displaced from school by Covid-19 as a Community Outreach Team Lead

    Brooklyn and VicinityNew York, NY 11233
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Community Outreach/Distribution Team Lead: Have you ever wanted to do something AMAZING to change the world but didn't know where to start? Here is an opportunity to help underprivileged children, to help under-served children, to help ALL children displaced from school due to COVID-19, and even to help many adults who can't read. We are looking for three, very special people, who have the skills, expertise, experience, passion, and time to be part of something amazing that is about to fundamentally change the lives of millions of children. Right now, millions of children have no hope; but soon, they will have the opportunity to learn how to read, which, in turn, will open a window to education and to a world of potential for them that, not only, has never been opened before, but that has never even been seriously contemplated as a potential reality. What we are talking about is adaptive learning, gamified smartphone app, called FUNetix, that can literally, teach a child how to read, in the comfort of their home, in an average of just 12 hours of total use time! We are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for nearly 12 years! We have been developing this app for about two years, and this year we will launch this incredible smartphone app in the App Store and on Google Play by Thanksgiving, 2020, to help save millions of children from a lifetime of illiteracy! Already, there are millions of children who are struggling to learn how to read. Already, there are millions more who have given up on reading and are destined to go through life either completely illiterate, or with semi-literate skills at best. And now with the displacement of tens of millions of children from school, for an indeterminate amount of time , the loss of reading capacity of the next generation presents a new, crisis moment in American education , and a very real threat to the future success of millions of young students. We are partnered with an engineering team that was one of the five, $1 million finalists, in the XPrize for Global Learning competition (the winners of which were announced last May), which was a worldwide competition for app "design and development" teams to design, build and deliver a tablet-based app to children in remote villages in Africa which could teach them how to read and do basic math (children of all ages, most of whom had never been to school before in their lives). The curriculum that our app is based on is a patented reading decoding system , and is so effective at teaching children how to read, that it usually only takes 4-6 hours for them to understand the basic learning tools, and another 4-6 hours for them to reach a 2nd grade reading level. Compare this to so many of our students who have been in the public school system for 6 years and still can't spell simple words like "the, said, was, would, could, there or which." Compare this to millions of students who have dropped out of school, primarily because they can't read (more than 10 million per decade (25% according to U.S. Government statistics)). More than 20 million children in grades 3-12 in America's public schools today are either completely or functionally illiterate, according to the U.S. Government’s "Annual Report Card." Our organization is a nearly 12 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program in Philadelphia and central New Jersey, and we still provide one-on-one tutoring. But our focus has always been on finding a scalable solution to the literacy crisis in America. With the rise of the smartphone and the amazing penetration of this powerful tool (currently estimated at 80%), even into the most impoverished communities, we feel that the answer we have been searching for ABSOLUTELY comes in the form of an app. So for the past several years we have been working to convert our amazing reading curriculum, that teaches children how to read in an average of just 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in about the same time. And this is where you come in. We have a LOT of opportunity in front of us to finish building and testing, and, ultimately, to deliver an end-user experience (the UX) to millions of children in America's inner cities and rural counties, in the barrios and the suburbs, and on the American Indian reservations, and everywhere in-between, with this smartphone app. But in order to do this, we need to complete three pieces of the equation: The Horse, The Cart, and the Payload. The Horse is the curriculum; and it is well under way in the conversion process from an analog to a digital curriculum. (We have designed already 1,500 of the nearly 2,000 screen, fully narrated, reading learning experience.) The Cart is the distribution system, the "how do we get it out into communities and to the children, once it's built?" Despite what some may think, just because we put an app in the App Store, doesn't mean it will go viral. There's an old adage that goes, "build a better mousetrap, and the world will NOT beat a path to your door!" You still have to market, publicize and distribute your invention, even if it's FREE, like ours! More on "The Cart," in a moment. And the Payload is the UX (the user experience). But it's not just the child (the ultimate beneficiary) who must enjoy the experience enough to continue through the progressive learning modules, it's also the parent, or guardian, or friend, or grandparent, or sibling, or concerned adult, who must be supported. And for that we are building the support system and the support network that will scale with the app, and not constrain the growth and penetration of the app into the vast layers and interconnected folds of American society. The UX is being tested and empowered to work in a controlled environment before it is released into an uncontrolled environment like the App Store or Google Play, where its success will depend upon ease of use, ease of understanding and the support that we provide to caring adults who download the app for the purpose of saving their child from living a life of impoverishment, without education, without access to information, and without hope. In addition, all of our external communications will be supported and cross connected through our website. Our brand, image, content and messaging will be a collaboration of our graphic design, UX, Communications and Web Mastery teams. The specific software we use to update and improve our website will be determined soon, after we have assessed all of the new component parts we wish to include in our web presence. As for the curriculum, we have approximately 1,500 of 2,000 screens completed. After the child learns the fundamentals of letters and sounds and how to blend sound symbols to form words and sentences (using a super-child-friendly, phonetic code called 21E), we transition them to English, where we utilize our patented diacritic decoding system to introduce them to the irregular letter patterns found in English spelling. From there, we continue to increase students' awareness of the various letter patterns and combinations, while simultaneously introducing them to more and more complex sentences, stories and interactive, fiction and non-fiction content. Our Curriculum Content Development team will be helping to build the final 10 modules plus additional content (300-500 screens) of the app and will be sourcing additional books, stories, games, puzzles and other content that children will transition to (an interactive "Content Library") after they have finished the 12-hour structured curriculum. There's much more to tell. You can read more about our story and about us on our website at www.YouthLit.org , however, keep in mind that many updates to that website are coming soon! Meanwhile, our Engineering team, they will be working to prepare the app for launch this Thanksgiving, 2020 by coordinating with our NY-based engineering partner to ensure usability and compatibility with a variety of iOS devices. As for our Community Outreach / Distribution Team, our challenge is to bring the app to children who are not learning how to read in school, either because they are in schools that are failing or because they are in difficult situations at home for a variety of reasons. Many parents are desperate for an education solution for their children, but the challenge of teaching reading to children is too great for teachers on their own with upwards of 40+ children in a class in many cases, combined with a reading curriculum that is confusing and doesn’t scale. Children get lost, confused and bored, and many of them act out, forcing teachers to focus on classroom management as opposed to classroom learning. The real literacy rates in so many thousands of America’s elementary schools are 20% or less in 3rd grade and beyond! But this doesn’t have to be this way and FUNetix is going to change ALL of this, soon! Our Community Outreach Team Leads will be building relationships with community leaders of all types and varieties to first, assess needs, and then deliver solutions to millions of parents who have no other place to turn. Our goal is not simply to tell parents what WE have, but rather, to listen to their needs vicariously, through our community advocates, in order to best tailor our app-based solution to meet THEIR needs. We are partnering with thought leaders, community leaders, religious leaders, other non-profits and NGO’s, national leaders, role models, such as entertainment and sports figures, corporate leaders and philanthropists, and any and all people and organizations who are focused on fundamentally and permanently improving the education landscape for ALL of America’s children. Our Community Outreach and Distribution Team Leads are individuals with diverse backgrounds and with diverse interests and talents, but most of all, they are individuals who have a willingness to reach out to communities in need and to the leaders within those communities, as well as to other leaders who can help make a difference. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity to be one of the three leads for our Community Outreach/Distribution Team, please send us a cover letter and resume to HR@YouthLit.org. We are looking for intelligent, creative, outgoing, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals with significant real world experience and a willingness to both talk and listen to people and to identify ways to best share the benefits of our app with children in need. This is a complex undertaking and we are looking for highly proficient and organized professionals. Just to be clear, our organization is an all volunteer, mission-centric, extended virtual network, comprised of highly skilled and experienced individuals from around the country (and a few from around the world) who collaborate through cloud-based technology and platforms. Individuals interested in this position must have the confidence and ability to work in a virtual environment using select networking and communications tools and platforms. Given the current "social distancing" environment that we find ourselves in, individuals must also be willing to pick up the phone, send out emails, schedule Zoom meetings and use other communications technologies to contact and build relationships with our target audience. Thank you! We hope this opportunity finds you at the right place and the right time in your career to make a difference and an impact, in an amazing way, for millions of children who are waiting for someone, or some thing, to lead them out of a life of impoverishment and into a future of unlimited possibility and potential. We look forward to hearing from you and speaking with you about the future of literacy in America. Mr. R. Kali Woodward Founding, Executive Director

    The Urban Outreach Center (UOC) of New York City is a non-profit human services organization founded in 1990 whose concentration is to provide extensive services (food, clothing, hygiene essentials, and many social services) for the most vulnerable populations in NYC. The UOC mission is to work collaboratively with low-income people, immigrants, and women - particularly women of color - to ensure access to material necessities for all, build supportive networks and relationships, and advocate for a more just, equitable, and inclusive New York City. UOC successfully helps nearly 50,000 vulnerable New Yorkers each year to move with dignity out of homelessness and food insecurity toward self-sufficiency -- and looks forward to helping many more! Mental health is directly proportional to the wellbeing of the mind and body both physically, emotionally, and mentally. Approximately 1 in 5 New Yorkers display symptomatic behavior in correlation to mental disorders like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia. Unfortunately, there are many barriers that prevent individuals from obtaining treatment like stigmas, symptoms that prevent them from consciously recognizing conditions/abnormal behavior(s), and insurance limitations. UOC would like to create free mental health services for those who are in need -- as such, we welcome the opportunity for licensed clinicians, social workers, psychologists, counselors, and other related professionals to volunteer for our organization. With the current COVID-19 pandemic, there will be workshops conducted either virtually or in-person (using adequate precautions; social distancing, mask-wearing, sanitized stations, etc). If interested, please feel free to contact us via email (angelo@uocnyc.org) or call Angelo Gonzalez at (212-288-6743). We hope that you join the Urban Outreach community and look forward to hearing from you soon

We then provide volunteer Food Rescuers to collect that excess food on a weekly (sometimes daily!), recurring basis, and walk it to the human service agency to help feed individuals who could benefit from a good meal! Who We Need YOU!! RLC is currently seeking passionate and committed leaders who are willing to take on the role of Lead Rescuer and lead at least one food rescue event on a weekly, recurring basis! Each event is an hour or less and there are events every day of the week. The average number of volunteers you would be working with is three (although if you'd prefer to perform your food rescues solo you can do so! Lead Rescuers have the ability to adjust the number of volunteers that can sign up for each event that they lead). As a Lead Rescuer, you will use your (R)esourcefulness, (L)eadership, and (C)ommunication skills to ensure that the rescued food arrives at its destination safely while providing a positive and supportive experience for all volunteers assisting you on your event. If you are able to commit to leading 5+ food rescue events per week you will receive compensation in the form of an unlimited monthly MetroCard in order to reimburse you for your trips around the city! Must be 18 years or older.
