Logo design projects typically last between 30 and 45 days, depending on your availability. This includes some preparation and design time (flexible to your schedule) and interactions with the small business owner (via email, phone or video conferencing). This is a limited-scope opportunity with a clear deliverable and project end date. Does Start Small Think Big provide resources to get started? We provide information about the small business and their needs, and, if available, a design brief from the small business owner with input on their brand colors, fonts, and other relevant information.

  • Video Editing Guru Needed

    Video Editing Guru Needed to Sustain the Herd at Spring Reins of Life/Hope NOW! Covid19NJ shut our business down hard for 17 months. We have worked very hard to return providing sincere healing for trauma survivors in New Jersey. While we have begun to see groups of clients again it has not been the same and we are finding that it is imperative to supplement income in order to care for our award winning service animals that produce miracles for people who are suffering. During the shutdown we started a virtual business (a subsidiary of Spring Reins of Hope llc) called NJ Virtual Herd. As a part of that endeavor we began creating candid videos of our barn life/ farm life behind the scenes with our furry colleagues. (www.NJvirtualherd.com ) There is a lot of footage that needs editing to become the stories that we have to tell. NJ Virtual Herd has a channel on Rumble and Youtube and our goal is to gather enough following to monetize. Goal is not to become famous internet stars as most would have it. Our goal is to channel enough funds to cover our living expenses during the winter months (or when programming is slow) in order to buy Hay! Because, horses do eat like horses. If you have excellent video editing skills and can work quickly, we need you on our team and in our Herd. Most of our videos average 10-20 minutes in length with simple footage edits to join together in the right order, adding in still pictures if applicable, and also music / text. We have a gsuite drive to upload the raw footage clips and other media where it can be used for editing and then a final uploaded to this same drive. This is an urgent request for help. We need one (1) really talented and enthusiastic video editing guru to help us catch up and then continue to help us put out one (1) video per week. Please and Thank You.

  • "Kids Against Hunger" ~ Kids Helping Homeless Kids

    This is a wonderful opportunity for our youth to be involved in solving a social issue here in the community. Hunger pains are real and our homeless children feel them every day. We need you to help stop the pains for these precious children. Donations towards this program will be used to feed the homeless children summer. Our program provides a free summer educational program on 3 islands over the summer. One of the most important aspects to this fundraiser is providing hot nutritional meals to homeless children. During the school year children are able to enjoy a daily meal; however, during the summer that stability is gone. Children can go days without a healthy meal and most children will go to bed hungry. Your support can make the difference in these precious lives. Our summer camp programs provide a full daily meal schedule along with snacks. Help keep our homeless children nourished this summer. Some examples of the cost and what your donation helps to provide. Daily breakfast is $5.50 Daily Lunch is $7.50 2 Daily Snacks is $3.50 Take home (dinner) is $7.50 You make the difference each dollar at a time. There are many ways to be involved in the solution of ending hunger for our homeless children. When asked, children come up with some really great ideas on their own and can really help them in their own learning process of problem solving. Here are some examples that have been successful in the past that are lead by the children. 1. Children have cleared out their closet of their unwanted toys. Put them together and sold them to the neighbors and on social media to raise funds to help a homeless child. This teaches the child the value of money, how to negotiate sales, customer service and the fulfillment of being able to make an impact with their own means. 2. Other children have hosted bake sales for their own family, offering to make desserts or other goodies for a gathering or a special dinner. 3. One classroom sold coffee every morning at parent drop off and actually raised $1,500 in one week. 4. A group of teens washed cars for the elderly. Had their family and friends sponsor a donation for the cars washed, donated their earnings to help feed our children. The possibilities are endless, our youth have wonderful creative ideas and in the end everyone gains something from the experience of feeding homeless children. We also have a social media challenge. Post our link to Share a Meal and allow your friends and family to sponsor a child for just $7. This too can be very interactive and creative. Your child can make a short video of why they choose to partner with Project Hawai’i, Inc. and help feed homeless children, and put a challenge of their own for others to do the same. You can share your impactful campaign to Facebook, Instagram, TickTock or other platforms and make a difference today. HOW TO GET YOUR CHILD STARTED: Send your name and email Your child's name Your goal and ideas. We will send you the link to our Share a Meal program to help you get started. If you prefer we can create your own fundraising page to share on social media as well. We also have text to give options and create a flier to hand out. Mahalo for taking the time to see how your child can help a child go to bed with a full tummy tonight. We need your help because these children count on us!!!

  • News nonprofit seeks content editors / researchers for Covid vaccine-related websites & videos

    We are a team of caring journalists, researchers, editors, web developers and creatives who provide high quality information to make the world a better place in a variety of ways. All work is via the computer, so you can be anywhere. You can also do the work anytime of the day or night, and a choice of weekdays and/or weekends. This position is doing research to find useful information about the various Covid vaccines for several educational websites and videos we are creating. The websites and videos will help: A) Governments around the world to be able to choose the best vaccines for their people. B) Individuals to pick the vaccine that is best for them out of the ones available. C) Doctors and journalists to learn about the different vaccines. The websites and videos will be provided for free as a public service. The videos will be at YouTube, our websites and other mediums. We are pro-vaccination, and are not anti-vaxxers. We are creating videos on each of the major vaccines, and also a video about all of them. Later we will also do a video that encourages people to get vaccinated and stay up to date on their Covid vaccinations in order to protect themselves, their loved ones and society's vulnerable. It will also talk about the benefits to society of keeping Covid under control via vaccinations including: a) less need for partial lockdowns when new variants emerge; b) less need for masking; c) less need for social distancing; d) less economic losses; e) less suffering and less deaths. We are also creating similar websites about the vaccines. Here is a link to the draft design of one of them. FYI: As our web designers build a new site, they type in what's known as "dummy data," which is just random data so the pages aren't empty. Thus we can see how the design looks with content in it. We have already compiled some of the data in a file, and will add it to the site before we launch. So ignore the dummy data for now: CovidVaccinesComparison.com - https://covidvaccinescomparison.com We are also going to do a monthly newsletter that contains the latest studies, medical journal articles and other new information related to the various vaccines. We have spent more than 200 hours researching almost all details of the vaccines and we will continue to do a lot more. Thus we are saving government officials, doctors, reporters and individuals tons of time. The volunteer work will include a mix of the following: A) Research information about all of the major vaccines for use on our sites and videos B) Research potential video snippets and quotes from health experts, doctors and others C) Read social media and discussion forums to find misinformation, and post replies to rebut it D) Other things depending on what's needed Prior experience isn’t needed, but the following things are required: - Be organized and pay great attention to details - Have a good quality memory so you can absorb information - Be self-motivated to stay on track when working from home - Proficient in English We can give job references and LinkedIn endorsements to volunteers who do good quality work.

  • Curating infectious disease outbreaks (1 day/week 1 to 2 hours)

    The WoIDMo is running a surveillance system to detect infectious disease outbreaks from both official non-official sources. This is in order to construct a better view of the landscape of infectious diseases globally and how they affect people. It is currently the most complete publicly accessible database of infectious disease outbreaks and an invaluable resource for researchers and CDCs.. Every day we are detecting about 15 events that indicate an infectious disease outbreak and these events need to be curated manually. We are specifically looking for volunteers (students, university level) who have a background in public health, biology, epidemiology, medicine or otherwise related to infectious diseases. Being able to write short summaries of texts in English is a requirement, as is being meticulous. Every volunteer will be assigned a specific day of the week. It takes one to two hours to work through the list of events. Before applying, please watch this video in its entirety. https://youtu.be/D1h12tCgEUE Apply only after having watched the video. We are specifically looking for people who have an interest in doing this long term. After you have been evaluated, you will be invited to join Microsoft Teams, where you can communicate with other volunteers to arrange optimal schedules and receive assistance with issues related to this work. Participating volunteers will be able to download a certificate, proving their contributions to this project.

  • Create Housewarming Baskets for Newly Housed People! - Virtual Opportunity

    At your work, school or even homeBoston, MA 02110
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    When we found ourselves in the midst of a public health emergency like nothing we’d ever seen, we understood why our neighbors without secure housing are the most at risk. Just imagine if you didn’t have a safe home. You can help our extremely vulnerable neighbors move out of crowded shelters and unsafe outdoor spaces into safe, dignified 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.

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

    Not only has the COVID-19 coronavirus placed older adults and adults living with disabilities at very high risk of serious illness or death, but it has also made them more susceptible to social isolation and loneliness. Many older adults already live with a deep sense of disconnection from their community, but the pandemic and related social distancing measures have made their sense of social isolation much worse. The Social Engagement Program at Mystic Valley Elder Services is designed to help improve the health and well-being of isolated older adults in the community by providing a meaningful social connection-whether it be through telephone calls, email messages, or regular visits. We are looking for local volunteers. See more detailed information about the program. Our agency serves a diverse population, and this program will be no exception. It is our mission to recruit a diverse cohort of volunteers, and we encourage bilingual volunteers to ensure that all of our consumers feel heard! In addition to speaking their native language, cultural connections can also help build an even stronger connection. More about the Social Engagement Program at MVES! There are three different options for program participants. Volunteers may choose one that is best for them, or could be involved in two, or all three! Volunteers in all parts of this program will receive training and ongoing support. Considering that the goal of this program is to offer meaningful connections, we do ask that volunteers commit to a minimum of 1 year of service. Our expectation is that everyone would begin by being matched with just one person, however, if you are interested, we could potentially match with you up to 5 individuals looking for someone to connect with! The Social Engagement Program includes the following services: Telephone Reassurance Volunteers call an isolated individual, offering a social contact and friendly conversation. This program asks for a commitment of approximately 2-4 hours per week. Email Pen Pal Program Volunteers provide a regular social and supportive email communication. This program requires a commitment of approximately 1-2 hours per week. Friendly Visitor Program Volunteers provide home visits that focus on in-person socialization and companionship. This aspect of the program will only be done when it is safe to do so, and will ask for a commitment of approximately 1-2 hours per week.

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. In order to adhere to social distancing practices due to the current pandemic, most work and client interactions will be conducted 90% virtually. (unless client needs to come into office) 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 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

With your help, a participant can get settled quickly and continue to work on the challenges that surrounded their homelessness, like medical concerns, employment, legal issues, and mental health. At a time when we are told to stay home more than ever, it is essential we help our program participants feel safe and comfortable. On The Rise will send you a bio of the participant you are helping and their personal wishlist. You purchase the items on the list, and then drop them off to On The Rise. One of our advocates will bring everything to the participant’s house and help them set up. The list generally includes household items and small appliances, not furniture. Please note, by the time you receive a wishlist a participant is already living in their new apartment with little to no housewares, so a fairly quick turnaround time is helpful. A few guidelines: Drives need to be completed and delivered to On The Rise. Our staff work closely with each participant to make sure that their list only includes the items they really need to make their home feel like a fresh start filled with hope and new possibilities. We ask that you help us: 1. Ensure that the donated items are on the participant's wish list (if you have additional items or extras please let us know before bringing to On The Rise so we can find out if they are wanted) 2. Accept only NEW items, and when noted ensure that "like new" items are really in excellent condition. We welcome gift cards to home stores that a participant can use to purchase items for themself to supplement missing items from their list.

Volunteer bill payers have helped prevent evictions due to: non-payment of rent, loss of utility and phone service, premature placement of elders in nursing homes Financial expertise is NOT required To learn more about this opportunity to make an immediate and dramatic difference in the life of an elder, please contact Kate at Ethos - kbancroft@ethocare.org or 617-477-6622.

The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that relies on contributions from generous individuals, corporations, service clubs, and foundations to fund its mission to serve people with disabilities.

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

    Youth with a Mentor are: 55% more likely to enroll in college 81% more likely to participate in sports or extracurricular activities 130% more likely to hold leadership positions "A Mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself." Family Services of the Merrimack Valley matches children aged 6-14 with caring adults to serve as a role model and friend to a child in need of support through its Big Friends Little Friends (formerly Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Lawrence). Once a match is made, mentor and mentee meet once a week for 1.5 - 2 hours each visit. There is a 1-year minimum commitment to ensure mentees have a positive and beneficial experience. Matches spend time in the community having fun, exploring interests, and building a relationship. We serve mentees living in the cities and towns of: Amesbury, Andover, Boxford, Georgetown, Groveland, Haverhill, Lawrence, Merrimac, Methuen, Newbury, Newburyport, North Andover, Rowley, Salisbury, and West Newbury *Please be aware that the ability to meet in person with your mentee is subject to change based on how the COVID situation in our community and state changes.* Mission Statement Family Services of the Merrimack Valley empowers, nurtures and support children and families through life’s challenges to help them reach their full potential. To achieve that mission, we aim to make a positive difference in the lives of children and youth through a robust menu of mentoring programs. Family Services’ youth mentoring that provides caring adult volunteers who offer support, guidance, and friendship to children in need. We match each child we serve with a mentor who believes in them. We offer our mentors the opportunity to experience the magic that comes with exposing a child to new perspectives and possibilities. Description Mentors open doors and challenge young minds. Outings might be recreational, character building, or educational. A mentor could provide the first opportunity for a child to explore a museum, hike a mountain, or join a sports team. They may be the only adult in the child's life who can consistently devote time to just hanging out, one-on-one. The most common outings are as simple as walking in the park, baking a cake, or renting a movie. Mentors have the opportunity to be a true friend to a child in need. The program offers a variety of mentorship options: Traditional 1 on 1 Mentoring - Mentors and mentees get together on their own. They spend time in the community doing activities such as shooting hoops, visiting a museum, or doing a craft. Matches are made with consideration to such things as geographic location, interests and personalities. Mentor with a partner (spouse, friend, co-worker) - A community-based mentoring match where two mentors spend time with one mentee - either at the same time or alternating schedules. Family Matches - A community-based mentoring match in which an entire family is involved. Typically one adult takes the lead as the primary mentor, but all of the family members contribute to the mentorship relationship. Cross-gender Matches - A match in which a female mentor is paired with a boy aged 12 years old or younger. (There are many more boys than girls waiting for a mentor in the Big Friends Little Friends program.)

    Mon, April 4, 2022 - Sat, June 11, 2022

    Hill House Baseball is set to return for another spring as downtown Boston's Little League! Our Majors league is run for 11-13 year olds, a co-ed age group that is a ton of fun to coach as we introduce a few of the more advanced skills and mechanics to players eager to learn how to pitch and hit off of other players. Hill House Majors Baseball is a volunteer-led program that runs team practices on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:00-7:00pm, as well as on Saturdays from 9:00-11:00am. Hill House is seeking enthusiastic and energetic coaches to help lead or assist with each team for practices and game days. Prior experience working with children is a plus, and only starting to intermediate baseball knowledge is needed! A New Coaches Clinic and training pre-season can be offered. Season Dates Our spring season runs from the first week of April through mid-June. Our leagues will not meet on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. Program Location Our programming is predominantly run on the Teddy Ebersol Red Sox Fields located on Esplanade as well as on Boston Common. Most programs will be set the Beacon Hill area where we are based. Organization Hill House is a nonprofit community center located on Beacon Hill that serves Boston’s diverse downtown neighborhoods.
