In its first few years, over 600 organizations self-registered on the platform from over 60 countries and 30 U.S. states and territories. In addition to a new and improved UI, the new version of the site will be implementing Lambda microservices, Java/Spring/Maven, latest Angular version, and DynamoDM, GraphQL, MYSQL, AWS, and more. Members of the team code review/test each other's work before we merge so this aspect would be shared by team.

  • Join the Aspire Education's Board of Directors

    A Unique Moment Of 211 non-profit organization considered, Aspire Education was just chosen for the first-place Impact 100-East Bay award. Soon after, we were selected from among dozens of applicants for a multiyear grant from the City of Oakland to expand our early literacy programming. Now we are looking for new members to join our Board of Directors to lead this expanding social enterprise. If you have a passion for helping underserved students meet their potential and an interest in working to help a grassroots nonprofit make new connections and scale, then this is the board for you! Here's a little more about us: The need is unprecedented. But so is our ability to meet that need. Since 2005, Aspire Education has gathered a small community of tutors and mentors to empower East Bay students with the skills they need to succeed. In math. In science. In languages. And all from a place of love and investment. In 15 years, we’ve impacted over 9,000 middle and high school students. But what makes Aspire unique is that our students don’t just receive mentoring, they’re also invited to become mentors themselves, through our flagship program Community Reading Buddies. Community Reading Buddies Every year, two-thirds of Oakland’s low-income kindergarteners arrive to school already behind. Graduation is 12 years away, but they’re already 4 times as likely not to graduate high school. That’s where Community Reading Buddies comes in. By training middle and high school students in leadership and communication skills, and pairing them with young students behind in literacy, those students learn critical literacy skills over the course of two months and are ignited with a passion for reading. When COVID-19 hit, Community Reading Buddies partnered with award-winning digital literacy platform BookNook. With their easily customizable curriculum, we ran our first virtual programs, not only during the summers but through the entire year. The results have been astonishing, and have garnered attention. For every 8 week cycle, our hundreds of young readers have made four months of progress in literacy. Over a full school year, that would be a jump of more than two grade levels. But it’s not only the younger children who receive an education. So do the teenaged Youth Mentors who are reading with them. Before they even begin, they’re given training on how to connect, understand, and communicate, all of which helps prepare them to become independent, emotionally intelligent adults. Now we're positioned to scale and make a meaningful difference in the lives of thousands of students. But we need the right leaders to help us connect, network, and expand awareness of Community Reading Buddies. You can be a part of creating that change.

Because chaplains travel throughout the war zone, working with them helps Soldiers' Angels reach personnel who may be in remote locations, feeling isolated and lonely, and in need of a morale boost. We also strongly encourage these service members to submit their names for adoption through their chaplain. Register as a Team Angel to participate in the Chaplain Support Team today: https://soldiersangels.org/Chaplain-Support-Team.html

  • Bring Fresh Produce to Hungry People!

    From area farms, markets to food banks, pantriesKansas City, MO 64111
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    At After the Harvest, we glean excess produce from farm fields, but also pick up already harvested excess produce from farms, farm stands and farmers’ markets and deliver it to food banks (like Harvesters) and pantries to feed hungry people. We also need lead volunteers who will "Adopt-a-Market" for the season on a rotating schedule. (For example, pick-up at City Market every 1st and 3rd Sunday, or pick-up at Overland Park Farmers' Market every 2nd Saturday). Each Lead Produce Rescue Driver will receive special training and packaging at the beginning of the season. Additional one-time volunteers will be matched with a Lead Produce Rescue Driver to help with pick-up and delivery to nearby food agencies. We currently pick up at the following Farmers Markets through October: Brookside, Overland Park City Market, Lenexa, Parkville, Lee's Summit, and Unity Village. If you have a vehicle that can haul produce, and you have a heart to help those in need...ATH can sure use your help! Pick up donated produce every week or periodically from farms, markets and distributors. Bring the kids and make the experience come full circle by delivering to food banks, pantries, shelters and community kitchens in the Greater Kansas City area. Other opportunities: Your organization/group wants to glean? Reserve your date now. You want to lead a gleaning? We always need field supervisors. You want us to come speak to your organization? We’d love to meet you! After the Harvest has a very small staff, so we only succeed because of volunteers like you! Thanks so much for helping rescue fresh, nutritious produce to feed those in need. In compliance with CDC and local health guidelines regarding COVID-19, we are implementing the following rules for all volunteer events. Volunteers must not exhibit any signs of illness currently or within the last 14 days. Volunteers must not have traveled outside of Kansas or Missouri in the last 14 days. All volunteers older than 2 years must wear a face mask for the duration of the event. Homemade cloth masks and handkerchiefs are acceptable. Volunteers from different households must maintain at least 6 feet of distance at all times. All volunteers are required to complete an electronic waiver form before entering the field.

  • Help Feed Kansas City This Season!

    From area farms, markets to food banks, pantriesKansas City, MO 64111
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    SIGN UP FOR GLEANING AND GET YOUR HANDS A LITTLE DIRTY: https://aftertheharvestkc.org/volunteer/gleaning-sign-up/ Rise and shine and bring your family and friends, corporate co-workers and congregations, groups and organizations to glean (harvest what’s left over) with After the Harvest. Together, you’ll rescue fruits and vegetables from farms, orchards and gardens. Then, we deliver the produce fresh from the field-you can help do that too if you can!-to pantries, kitchens and shelters feeding our hungry neighbors. With morning weekday and some weekend gleaning events, from May through November-sometimes earlier and sometimes later depending on the weather and growing season-you’re sure to find a fit. All are welcome, including children of any age, who get to see how our food grows and where it comes from. Please note: Gleanings are within 30-45 minutes of downtown Kansas City. We’ll contact you the week of your gleaning (sometimes up to the day before) with where and what you’ll be harvesting, based on what our growers tell us is available. Our regular gleaning dates are Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings with occasional last-minute gleanings occurring on other days of the week. You can sign up for a planned gleaning shift directly on our website: https://aftertheharvestkc.org/volunteer/gleaning-sign-up/ Our gleanings usually begin at 7:30am and last for approximately three hours. Each gleaning is dependent on what is ready to pick and which farmers have extra for us to glean and provide to hungry people in the area. Sometimes we know specifics a week in advance, sometimes a day, but we do know that we’ll be harvesting, so you’ll see postings just stating that we’ll be gleaning "produce" at a nearby farm. We’ll post and e-mail the details as the date approaches. After the gleaning, you'll have an opportunity to deliver the produce to one of our pantries or food agencies (our volunteers tell us this is often the most rewarding part of their experience). In compliance with CDC and local health guidelines regarding COVID-19, we are implementing the following rules for all volunteer events. Violation of any rule will result in immediate dismissal from the event: Volunteers must not exhibit any signs of illness currently or within the last 14 days Volunteers must not have traveled outside of Kansas or Missouri in the last 14 days. All volunteers older than two years must wear a facemask for the duration of the event. Homemade cloth masks and handkerchiefs are acceptable. Volunteers from different households must maintain at least 6 feet of distance at all times. Disposable food safety gloves should be worn when packing produce. We will provide disposable gloves for anyone who needs them. All volunteers are required to complete an electronic waiver form before entering the field. Volunteers who have not completed the waiver will not be allowed to participate.

    Would you like to volunteer from your own home? If so, we have the perfect volunteer opportunity. We need help making check-in calls to our hospice patients. Some patients have very little family or friends, so a phone call would be very nice. Would you like to send out greeting cards to a hospice patient or family member? These days everything is online or social media, so getting a nice card in the mail would put a smile on anyone's face. We hope to hear from you about one of these (or both) wonderful opportunities! Contact us today! We look forward to meeting you.
