Volunteers commit to at least two four-hour shifts per month for at least one year, with the option to do more.

The footage to be edited is a combination of recorded in-person seminars, sit-down videos, screen recorded tutorials and voice overs. The goal is to create short videos for each topic, getting rid of white noise, cropping out long pauses, adding French subtitles, etc... We want each video to be as short as possible while still conveying all the necessary information clearly.

    Going crazy in quarantine? Do you, your kids, your quarantined cuties need something to do? There are so many elderly in facilities who are on lockdown and isolated from family, friends and volunteers who cannot visit. You know how they feel. Send them some love: Send a note Mail a postcard Take a picture of your dog, lizard, bird, ferret, octopus and show them how proud you are of your baby Make some individual, incredible art and mail it Write a poem and share it Create a meaningful message of hope and put it out there Scrawl a favorite Bible verse Draw your dog or cat and share it with them (don't tell the cat, they don't take it as well as the dog will) Contact me if you'd like to help. There are so many who would benefit from hearing from you, and it just might make you feel a little better knowing that you made someone's day and took their mind off being alone, isolated and uncertain about this future. Give them hope. Hospice patients and residents at these facilities would so appreciate a note from you! Knowing that you care about them, and that they're not alone would really make their day. Your note will take their mind away from this situation where they have no control. Please contact me if you'd like to send a card or a thousand cards and I'll give you some facility addresses where the residents are just waiting to hear from you. Do you want to help the community but don't know how because of social distancing or quarantine (or you just don't want to be around people)? Contact me to find out how! april.roush@brookdale.com 614-381-6023 (work cell)

  • Calling all educators, retired professionals or anyone who can commit a lot of volunteer hours!

    Do you enjoy reading? Are you are a subject matter expert, educator, retired professional or just looking to use your voice to make a difference? Learning Ally needs voices to read high school and college level textbooks. Continue reading below to see if you are a good fit for this volunteer opportunity: Learning Ally is looking for volunteers to become textbook readers. These readers will join a community of virtual volunteers in creating audiobooks for students with learning differences. To become a reader, volunteers will need to go through an online training course, submit an audition and pass an equipment check before becoming a reader. Get started by completing 3-easy-steps on this link: https://learningally.org/Get-Involved/Volunteer-Step-1. The last step includes our fit quiz which helps put volunteers in the role that best suits them. We are currently looking for textbook volunteers only to read/record science, math, foreign language, and many more subjects. Once volunteers get through the fit quiz, we prefer they select the textbook training course. If you do not believe you fit the textbook role, feel free to explore our other opportunities. You can find more detailed descriptions of volunteer roles here: https://learningally.org/Get-Involved/Volunteer-Opportunities. For our younger volunteers: We have a minimum age requirement of 16 years for most roles. However, we have used younger narrators that have voice over or acting experience for specific titles, working through their parents. If volunteers are 16+ they can apply and take the fit quiz to see what role they would match up with best. If the volunteer is looking for short-term volunteering, we suggest having them do Quality Assurance.

Protestors in Hong Kong; Kurds in Syria; activists in Iraq - their stories may appear on social media, but they are not being collected systematically in one place except for a few prominent dissidents. The Uyghurs in particular are being disappeared into camps in huge numbers, and we have worked with some families and in cooperation with a dedicated person (Gene Bunin) who has created a database of their testimonies at http://shahit.biz . (he can also use help!) We are working to create a similar database for other regions, including Iraq, Syria, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia and others. We have a small team of dedicated volunteers working on this project, the backend is in Go (Gorilla Toolkit) and the front end is in React. We have a lot of small things that still need to be done and would love help from anyone who is interested, we welcome fairly beginning coders but it would be important to know a little bit of Javascript/React.

  • Manhattan: Artists / Children's Book Illustrators: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis

    Manhattan and vicinityManhattan, NY 10002
    Mon, May 11, 2020 - Sun, August 9, 2020

    We are looking for some very special people who have the passion, time, and especially, the illustration skills needed to help us populate our proprietary reading materials child-friendly, colorful, happy, creative and otherwise wonderful drawings that potentially millions of children will see on their path to learning how to read. 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 an adaptive learning, gamified smartphone app, called FUNetix, that can literally, teach a child how to read, in the comfort of their home, in an average of just 12 hours of total use time! We are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for nearly 12 years! We have been developing this app for about two years, and this year we will launch this incredible smartphone app in the App Store and on Google Play by Thanksgiving, 2020, to help save millions of children from a lifetime of illiteracy! Already, there are millions of children who are struggling to learn how to read. Already, there are millions more who have given up on reading and are destined to go through life either completely illiterate, or with semi-literate skills at best. And now with the displacement of tens of millions of children from school, for an indeterminate amount of time , the loss of reading capacity of the next generation presents a new, crisis moment in American education  and a very real threat to the future success of millions of young students. We are partnered with an engineering team that was one of the five $1 million finalists in the XPrize for Global Learning competition (the winners of which were announced this past May), which was a worldwide competition for app "design and development" teams from around the world to design, build and deliver a tablet-based app to children in remote villages in Africa which could teach them how to read and do basic math (children of all ages, most of whom had never been to school before in their lives). The curriculum that our app is based on is a patented reading decoding system, and is so effective at teaching children how to read, that it usually only takes 4-6 hours for them to understand the basic learning tools, and another 4-6 hours for them to reach a 2nd grade reading level. Compare this to so many of our students who have been in the public school system for 6 years and still can't spell the word "the." Compare this to millions of students who have dropped out of school, primarily because they can't read (more than 10 million per decade). More than 20 million children in grades 3-12 in America's public schools today can't read! Our organization is an 11 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program and we still provide one-on-one tutoring. But our focus has always been on finding a scalable solution to the literacy crisis in America. With the rise of the smartphone and the amazing penetration of this powerful tool (currently estimated at 80%), even into the most impoverished communities, we feel that the answer we have been searching for IS in the form of an app. So for the past several years we have been working to convert our amazing reading curriculum, that teaches children how to read in an average of just 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in about the same time. And this is where you come in. The App is comprised of approximately 2,000 unique screens, each of which is fully narrated. 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. As students progress in their reading capability, we begin to introduce primers, books, stories, games, puzzles and other content that will be embedded within the learning modules AND that children will have access to in our "Wonderful Content Library" that is unlocked 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.FUNetix.org and at www.YouthLit.org . We are looking for some very special people who have the passion, time, and especially, the illustration skills needed to help us populate our proprietary reading materials child-friendly, colorful, happy, creative and otherwise wonderful drawings that potentially millions of children will see on their path to learning how to read. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity to be one of volunteer children’s book illustrators, please send us a sample of your artwork by replying to this listing. When you reply you will receive an auto-reply email containing an attached pdf. Follow the instructions on the pdf to illustrate ONLY ONE of the two story samples. (Each sample contains 2 screens, so you will be illustrating 2 screens from the same story.) Send your samples to info@FUNetix.org and we will respond to you if we choose your illustration. EVEN IF we don’t choose you to illustrate one of the sample stories, we may still contact you to illustrate one of our many other stories or books. We are looking for intelligent, creative, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals who can present a "look and feel" to children ages 5-9 that is happy, not scary; uplifting, not sad; bright and colorful, not dark or ominous; cute or whimsical, or otherwise conveying a positive outlook on the world. Thank you! We hope this opportunity finds you at the right place and the right time 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 through literacy. We look forward to seeing your work. All ages are welcome to contribute! Mr. R. Kali Woodward Founding, Executive Director

  • Hackensack and vicinity: Help Launch a Groundbreaking Reading App

    Hackensack and vicinityHackensack, NJ 07601
    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

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

    We are looking for a team of committed coaches to join our artistic team and help us take the SoulDeevas' organization to the next level! Due to the pandemic, we have suspended "in-person" practices. We are doing virtual, team-building exercises with our girls - many of whom joined the program the week before we had to shut down. We are looking to onboard a new team who will work with us as we restructure our teams for the new season which will begin in August (if it is safe to do so). The teams will hold practice on Saturdays from 4:30pm to 7:30pm at the Rahway YMCA in the downtown area of Rahway. We hope to recruit two coaches per team to cover one another in the event of absence. We are recruiting coaches for THREE majorette teams in NJ - 1. The Minis (girls, ages 5 to 7) 2. The Juniors (girls, ages 8 to 12) 3. The Seniors (girls, ages 13 to 18) Each team will have a roster of about fifteen girls and we generally find that they are beginners - with about 10% of each team's members having some form of dance experience. They love a challenge and we find that they rise to the occasion. The teams will be trained to perform and compete on local and national stages. Should NJ remain under "stay-at-home" orders in August, we will begin the season with virtual instruction. While coaching and majorette dance experience is not critical - experience in hip-hop dance is mandatory. We will consider a recent high school graduate with significant dance experience and will also consider a rising high school senior as an assistant coach. Interested candidates should respond letting us know about their dance experience and any burning questions that they have. Please tell us which of the three teams you are interested in leading. We will respond immediately. Thank you for your interest and please stay safe and sane.

    Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization working to ensure that children in foster care have their needs met and rights protected; that they move out of foster care and into permanent, safe and loving homes as quickly as possible; and that young people aging out of foster care have the resources and support they need to live independently. Family Court Judges assign CASA to assist with the most complex cases. To learn more, visit www.casa-nyc.org. Duties: Volunteer Advocates conduct thorough research on the background of the case, reviewing documents and interviewing all parties involved. They report to the court, raising issues of concern that may interfere with a child's best interests and providing information that will help the judge make an informed decision. Volunteer Advocates can also play a pivotal role in assuring that a child or family is receiving services the court has ordered, such as physical or mental health services, substance abuse counseling or special education. During the life of a case, Volunteer Advocates monitor the child's situation to assure he or she remains safe and may be the only constant in the child's life as he or she moves through the bureaucratic maze of the child welfare system. Volunteers come from all backgrounds and need not have experience in legal or social services. The only requirement is a strong desire to help children who are in dire need of help. A note on volunteer commitment: Volunteer Advocates complete a one-time 30-hour pre-service training and commit to serve for a minimum of one year after case assignment or until an assigned case is closed. In addition to dedicating at least 3-5 hours, more if necessary, each week on each case assigned, volunteers attend monthly group supervisions and in-service trainings.

The SoulGentz are the "Brother" organization to the SoulDeevas (www.souldeevas.com) and will launch with a competitive step team, a hip-hop dance program and a basketball program in August, We are looking to onboard a new team who will work with us to create a solid program for young boys who are growing to be young men, providing structure, leadership and mentorship - as well as exciting opportunities for performance and competition. The teams will hold practice on Saturdays from 12:30pm to 3:30pm at the Pearl Studios in the Penn Station area of Manhattan. We hope to recruit two coaches per team to cover one another in the event of absence. We are recruiting coaches for TWO teams in NYC - 1. The Juniors (ages 8 to 12) 2. The Seniors (ages 13 to 18) Each team will have a roster of about fifteen young men and we generally find that they are beginners - with about 10% of each team's members having some form of dance experience. The teams will be trained to perform and compete on local and national stages. Should NYC still be under stay-at-home order in August - the Coaches will begin to do virtual activities with their teams and will do live instruction via Zoom until we can return to in-person practices. While coaching experience is not required, significant hip-hop dance experience/ability is mandatory. We will consider a recent high school graduate with significant dance experience and will also consider a rising high school senior as an assistant coach. Interested candidates should respond letting us know about their dance experience and any burning questions that they have. Please tell us which of the two teams you are interested in leading. We will respond immediately. Thank you for your interest and please stay safe and sane.

    3204 Amboy RoadStaten Island, NY 10306
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Reports To: Foster and Adoption Manager. Location: Your home Description: Foster homes are the backbone of Louie’s Legacy Animal Rescue (LLAR), allowing us to save thousands of lives each year and place them into loving adoptive homes. Fosters provide a safe, secure environment for our animals, and allow the animals to live a normal life in a home, preparing them to be adopted by a forever family. Fostering is a rewarding experience as you will help a pet blossom into the best dog or cat it can be. Each animal is evaluated while in foster care for personality traits, behavioral and health issues, and any special needs. The foster home’s evaluation is critical to determine how each animal interacts with people and other animals. Knowing each animal well allows us to choose the best home for each pet and provides potential adopters with the opportunity to choose the best pet for their home. As an LLAR foster home, you are responsible for the temporary care and feeding of any foster animals in your home.

    Upper West SideNew York, NY 10023
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Fostering a cat is such a rewarding way to make a difference AND make a new best friend! By fostering an animal, you are saving a life! Fostering a cat for ALR means: * You welcome a new friend into your home to offer a safe, loving, and patient environment. They become a temporary member of the family! * Foster parents help the ALR team get that cat adopted by taking pictures, videos, and sending updates to the team. Virtual meetings with potential adopters can also be a part of the experience. * There is no financial commitment to fostering. ALR provides everything you will need - food, carrier, litter, litter box and toys. * All ALR animals are fully vetted beforehand. Vaccines are up to date and they are all spayed/neutered. * Already have a pet at home? That’s okay! Most foster cat's do very well with living in a multi-pet household.

  • Advocate for Children in Foster Care

    212 Washington StreetNewark, NJ 07102
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    CASA volunteers are community members who have a sincere desire to make a difference in the life of a child in foster care by becoming an advocate in court on the child's behalf. They are responsible adults who care deeply about the welfare of children and know that when they take on a case, they have the opportunity to change a child's life. As an advocate, a CASA volunteer will read Division of Child Protection and Permanency case files and interview all parties associated with the child and the case, such as biological parents, foster parents, school personnel, medical and mental health professionals and relatives. A CASA volunteer visits the child in the foster home every month in order to be familiar with what he or she needs. After gathering information, a CASA volunteer writes a report to be sent to the Family Court Judge who is presiding over the case. CASA volunteers are invited to appear at the actual Court hearing on the case to provide in-person testimony related to the report. CASA volunteers come from all walks of life and all kinds of educational, ethnic, and social backgrounds. Most work full time but some are students and some are retired. Objectivity and good communication skills are essential since a CASA volunteer must be able to work with a variety of people from child welfare professionals to birth parents. You must be at least 21 years old to volunteer. Completion of 30 hours of training in addition to a formal background check, references and an interview are required.

Interns with CASA of Union County volunteer with our development and program staff to ensure the organization has the resources and support necessary to do this critical work. CASA of Union County seeks interns each semester to help staff continue to make CASA thrive and reach as many abused, neglected and abandoned children as possible. Some recent intern responsibilities include: Entering and analyzing case data; Organizing and prepping for special events; Developing outreach materials and engaging in community outreach; Drafting articles for newsletters; Creating social media content; Updating paper and digital case files for program staff; Attending court with staff and volunteer advocates; Preparing training materials; Assisting with volunteer recognition; and Researching opportunities to expand the volunteer base. Interns commit to working approximately 10-15 hours per week for the semester. Fall interns generally work September to December; Spring interns generally work January to May; Summer Interns generally work May to August.

A car or other means of transportation is needed to carry the bags of groceries from the food pantry to clients households. "Our entire service is contactless, meaning that you must stay 6 feet away from your recipient at every step of the delivery process. That includes both during the payment process (see #4) and making the delivery itself. When you get to your recipient’s door, knock or buzz, set down their groceries, have a chat through the closed door (if they open it, step back!), and head out. Do not enter the recipient’s apartment for any reason, including to help them put away their groceries. We know these precautions may make your deliveries feel a little impersonal, so we encourage you to chat with your recipients by phone as much as you both like. It’s important that everyone have a warm and friendly experience-while remaining safe"(Invisible Hands).

    LifeWay Network is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that joins the global movement against human trafficking by providing safe housing for women who have been trafficked, and offering education about trafficking to the general public. LifeWay Network (LWN) envisions a world in which human trafficking is abolished and every survivor is strong, connected and free. LWN is one of only two organizations in the New York Metro area specifically providing safe housing for women survivors of human trafficking, and the only organization providing safe housing to survivors of both labor and sex trafficking who are either foreign-born or domestic. What sets LWN’s Safe Housing Program apart is its community living model. It offers a safe home by welcoming each woman into a supportive, caring community of permanent residents. This host community helps her recover from her trauma, regain her sense of self-worth, and enables her to move from isolation towards reclaiming her independence. The Host Community member is an integral member of the community in the safe house to provide a safe haven for women survivors of human trafficking. LifeWay Network provides safe housing for women who have escaped or have been rescued from a trafficking situation and need to be provided a safe and nurturing living situation where they can heal while receiving the services needed to enhance their growth.

The Host Community will be responsible for the oversight of the house during the hours in which the staff are off duty, although LifeWay Network will have an administrator available for consultation at all times in the event of an emergency. The Host Community will have the unique opportunity to interact with the residents in an informal way, contributing to the relaxed and home-like atmosphere in the house and providing a willing ear when a resident needs one. Benefits of being in this role: living in community, with room and board costs provided by LifeWay ability to work full time outside the safe housing program gaining experience in supporting survivors of human trafficking with complex trauma Core Competencies: A person of integrity who is committed to the mission and values of LWN, and has a passion for and knowledge of the field of human trafficking Culturally competent and experienced working with vulnerable populations An effective communicator with both writing and excellent public speaking skills Appreciative of and open to the spiritual foundation of LWN Qualifications: Heart, humor and a commitment to the LifeWay Network mission Prior experience in trauma-informed setting required Comfortability in participating in activities in a group setting Prior experience in community-living setting required Thorough understanding of confidentiality and privacy procedures as they relate to a residential facility Demonstrated ability to be a self-starter and collaborate within a larger team Excellent verbal communication skills and listening skills Active NYS driver's license and vehicle If you would like to learn more about this opportunity for community living in early 2020, please go to this link! https://lifewaynetwork.org/about/lifeway-volunteers/

What We Do We partner with licensed food vendors (offices, restaurants, etc) who know they will have excess, wholesome cuisine and link their food donations to a human service agency within their local community. 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 Core Rescuer and lead 5 food rescue events on a weekly, recurring basis! Each event typically lasts around 30-45 minutes on any day of the week, and the average number of volunteers you would be working with is three. As a Core 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 the same 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.
