The time commitment is about an hour, from 12:45 pm-1:45 pm CST to account for pre and post-session tasks. If every Friday is too much of a commitment, we can create a rotational schedule. Our Brain Aerobics session is Family Feud-style. You pull up Family Feud-type questions online and read them to participants over the phone and they come up with the answers. While we've been using Family Feud-type questions for many years, we are open to changing it up if you have ideas. The goal of the session is to get the brain engaged and have fun! While this volunteer opportunity is virtual, you must live in the U.S. Phone, computer, and internet connection is required, along with positive and fun energy that transfers well over the phone to older adults. Training and ongoing support provided. Thanks so much for considering this opportunity!

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. Each 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.

  • Attorneys - help victims of child abuse

    Legal services are a frequent need for clients that contact Justice for Children. Keeping their child safe from an abuser may require protective orders, divorce from an abuser, the need to establish or modify child custody and, many times, child support. Many of the victimized children we work with are the product of unmarried parents creating a need for the establishment of paternity. These clients lack the monetary resources to hire attorneys. The abuse of their child and lack of immediate resources to access services desperately places them in a crisis mode and highly emotional making the process even more daunting to them.

  • Do you enjoy graphic design? Help illustrate lessons for kids!

    If you’re a skilled graphic designer who is passionate about helping underserved children gain access to education, keep reading! Oppia is looking for a graphic designer to assist our Lesson Creation team with creating fun, engaging graphics to accompany our Basic Mathematics lessons. To get started, please fill in this form: https://forms.gle/XcLRg9635Xi2ZUtF9 Who We Are The Oppia Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with the mission to provide high quality education to all. We do this through the creation and maintenance of our free-to-use web platform and Android app , the coordination of our passionate contributors, and the development of critical partnerships with NGOs in the communities we aim to serve. Our lessons have reached over 2,000,000 users, and learners using our basic mathematics curriculum have seen gains of over 50% from pre-test to post-test. We actively work with contributors from around the world to help provide students with basic education; these blog posts ( post 1 , post 2 ) describe examples of our current work. Where You Fit In Millions of children are not receiving the education they deserve. Of the 61 million children worldwide who cannot attend primary school, 17 million will never step foot into a school if trends continue. Students around the world face difficulties accessing quality education due to conflict, discrimination, and lack of teacher training - and, in the wake of COVID-19, millions more children are also seeing interruptions in their daily lives, stability, and education, which makes it even more difficult for them to get the education they need to succeed. Our community of volunteers has created a series of novel and engaging story-based mathematics lessons that have proved highly engaging and effective with students from underserved communities. Because many of the students we work with aren’t proficient in English, images in the lessons that transcend the language barrier play a critical role in making the lessons welcoming and engaging. We're looking for someone who enjoys graphic design and is interested in using their skills to help build fun and engaging stories for our learners, so that we can make education as accessible as possible for students around the world!

Oppia has a community of hundreds of passionate volunteers from across the globe, so our meetings are held online at flexible times.

  • Help Soldiers in Harm's Way from your home through virtual volunteering

    A Plea for Letters of Gratitude for Soldier’s in Harm’s way Make a difference from the comfort of your own home. Help with COVID-19 from your home through virtual volunteering. This message from Packages4Patriots is a suggestion for a way you can help during these difficult times. If you have extra time on your hands and would like to give back to your community before life resumes to normal please consider taking the time to write a letter to a soldier in harm’s-way today. If you are home with children who are bored, this is a project they too could help with creating paintings and drawings. Packages4Patriots strives to include personal letters in every care package that we send. These letters and drawings ensure that a Soldier, Sailor, Marine or Airman knows that you are thinking of them. It will only take 5 minutes out of your day to write a letter, but it will bring joy to our troops that will last a lifetime. Sadly, most months we do not have enough letters and drawings for every care package. Here is some help to get started: CHILDREN AND ADULTS Letters: I write about everything. I include sketches and photos and poems and stories, quotes from what is going on around me and maybe some lyrics from a song. A puzzle, a quiz, a riddle. Kid’s Art: Don’t ask them to draw anything specific. Just collect them; A common favorite drawing is stick figures of your family and pets in front of your house. WHAT TO WRITE ABOUT Keep your message upbeat and positive Be thankful ~~ share a little bit of yourself Ask questions; however, do not discuss death or killing Avoid politics completely and religion in excess It’s all about appreciation and respect Ask yourself: "Will this letter bring a smile to someone’s face?" HOW TO GET YOUR LETTERS AND DRAWINGS TO US You can drop donations off during the day at The Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit. The church office hours are Monday-Friday from 9am-2pm Phone: 847-437-5897 You can also mail to Packages 4 Patriots at The Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit, 150 Lions Drive, Elk Grove Village, IL 60007 NEVER FORGET! Donations for postage is the lifeblood of this mission. Please LIKE us on Facebook.

    More than 40 million individuals, including 9 million children, are food insecure in the United States. At the same time, 40% of food in the food system is WASTED! The need for our work has never been more vital. Food Rescue US is dedicated to reducing hunger and food waste (keeping food out of landfills and reducing greenhouse gasses). We engage volunteers and food donors through our proprietary web-based app to directly transfer nutritious excess food to social service agencies serving the food insecure. Food Rescue US is a national organization with 40+ sites across 20+ states and DC. Food rescuers pick-up excess food from local food donors, including grocery stores, restaurants, corporate dining facilities, and other food providers, and deliver it to local social service agencies providing for the food insecure. Rescuers use their own vehicles and select rescues scheduled at times that are convenient for them to pick-up and drop-off the excess food. The process is quick, simple, and incredibly rewarding. Interested in getting involved? Sign up at FoodRescue.us to start today and see a complete schedule of local food rescue opportunities.

You can help our vulnerable neighbors move out of crowded shelters and unsafe outdoor spaces into safe, stable housing and live hopeful, peaceful futures in our community. In fact, Friends of Boston's Homeless has been helping over 30 people each month move into a stable home of their own. They all need a little help getting set up in their new apartments. The Housewarming Baskets you make help people who struggle on our streets and in crowded shelters feel that same happiness and sense of security as they move into their new place and get started in their new futures in our community by providing some of the essential items we all need when we move into a home of our own. By assembling and donating Housewarming Baskets, you'll be an important part of welcoming people into their new homes where they'll finally find the stability and serenity we all need. This is a meaningful and fun opportunity you can do on your own or with friends and family, co-workers and colleagues. It’s as simple as assembling new (not used) items like cleaning supplies, dish soap, laundry detergent, toilet paper, a set of sheets or towels, in a basket to be given as a housewarming gift to someone about to move into a place of their own - many for the first time in their lives. And please include a welcome note, they mean a lot to the people who receive them. You can also make this a fun Zoom by getting together with your co-workers, colleagues, friends and/or family and each person makes their own basket. You can create as many baskets as you'd like! You can drop off 24/7 at the Woods Mullen Women's Shelter, 794 Albany Street, right in the South End. You can also box them up and mail them, or place orders online, and have them sent to Attn: Dwayne Brown, Southampton Shelter, 112 Southampton Street, Boston, MA 02118. PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF AT 12 WISE STREET. Keep our community housing programs residents healthy, we continue working remotely and there is no place to leave packages if we aren't there. Thank you! We expect to help at least 550 more people move beyond homelessness into homes of their own this year and they'll all need a little help getting started. The baskets you make will be a big part of this! No matter what you choose, your gifts will transform someone's new apartment into a warm, welcoming home. To get started, just download this flyer and share with everyone you'd like to participate: https://fobh.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/07/Housewarming-Baskets-Flyer-2023.pdf

  • Public Benefits Internship at CONNECT!

    Chelsea, MA 02150
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    CONNECT Intake & Public Benefits Internship The Neighborhood Developers, Inc. (TND) creates vibrant neighborhoods where people from all walks of life can thrive. Focused in Chelsea and Revere, TND has crafted a remarkable track record of success through investments that are conceived, designed, and fostered by neighborhood residents, municipal partners, and many stakeholders. TND brings its core strengths -- building homes, engaging neighbors, and fostering economic mobility -- to community partnerships that create thriving families and strong neighborhoods. TND created and supports the CONNECT Financial Opportunity Center that co-locates and integrates the services of five agencies working together to improve the financial mobility of 4,000 clients annually. Based at the CONNECT office in Chelsea, the Intake & Public Benefits intern will work one-on-one to help families apply for SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly called food stamps) and make referrals to the WIC program. These public benefits have proven anti-poverty impacts for low income families and provide an important safety net. Each of these public benefits provides clients with a significant increase to their monthly income, but many of CONNECT’s clients are missing out on accessing these benefits due to systemic barriers in the application process, stigma associated with participation in government programs, or lack of awareness of eligibility. The Public Benefits intern will help eliminate barriers to financial stability among CONNECT’s low-income constituency through providing application assistance and case management support throughout the entire application process. The intern will help families to submit applications for benefits, collect required documentation, and navigate the complicated application process. Additional responsibilities include participating in weekly financial capabilities services staff meetings, providing an orientation of other services to clients, completing intake forms, calling the DTA and other customer assistance lines to help resolve client cases, and creating referrals to other services. Other tasks and activities may be added, based on the intern’s interests and organizational need. This position is 80% in person with 2 day work from home. Strong/proficient computer skills are required. This position is a good match for you if you like working directly with families, are bilingual (must be able to speak Spanish), have a high attention to detail, and can advocate for others. You’ll find that no two cases are the same, so this position requires creativity and flexibility in figuring out how to best help each client. The position also requires a high level of responsibility and ability to work independently. We are looking to fill multiple unpaid intern positions and will fill the positions on a rolling basis. The ideal candidate can commit to a minimum of 5/10 hours a week in the fall or 2 semesters. This position is only for Interns seeking course credit as part of their academic program. The schedule is flexible, and will be determined based on your availability and program need. This internship does not pay a stipend. To apply, please send a resume and a single paragraph describing why you are interested in the internship to Ruby Savinon, Program Manager: Rsavinon@tndinc.org. Serious inquiries only please. For more information about other ways to volunteer or get involved with Connect, please contact Program Director Alexa Shabecoff at (617) 545-8348 or by emailing Ashabecoff@tndinc.org
