  • 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.

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

    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 in 2020, we launched this incredible smartphone app in the App Store and on Google Play, 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, 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 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

  • Virtual: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis by donating your artwork or your child's artwork

    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 by COVID-19, to help close the opportunity gap in America, by closing the education gap, by closing the literacy gap that keeps growing. More than 20 million children in America's schools can't read! But all of that is about to change. #TheFUNetixLiteracyProject is a coordinated nationwide project to teach every child in America how to read by the end of third grade. The #Art4LiteracyProject, in conjunction with the FUNetix Literacy Project, is looking for a few very special people, talented high school, middle school and elementary school artists who are willing to donate their art to literacy . Together we are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for 12 years using a patented curriculum, now available as an app in the App Store and Google Play. We just launched this amazing and wonderful smartphone app, called the FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App, on January 5th, 2021 and November 11th 2020 respectively, to help save millions of children from a lifetime of illiteracy! The app literally teaches children how to read in 12 hours! Our organization is an "all volunteer," mission-centric, extended virtual network, comprised of more than seventy, highly skilled and experienced individuals from around the country (and a few from around the world) who collaborate through cloud-based technology and platforms. The app consists of more than 2,000 screens, each individually narrated to simulate a true one-on-one tutoring experience, which has been the hallmark of the American Youth Literacy Foundation for 12 years. We are looking for talented artists willing to donate one or more pieces of artwork (digital copies only, no originals) that we might use to create community oriented printable pdf flyers and merchandise like T-shirts, Water Bottles and Coffee Mugs which will be available in our new FUNetix Store. FUNetix is life changing; and unlike so many other discussions, conversations, policies, programs and protocols, FUNetix will make a profound impact on millions of individual lives, while also profoundly effecting major social improvement on a massive scale, to bring about real, sustainable change in underprivileged and fully privileged communities and classrooms alike, wherever illiteracy and poor literacy looms. Literacy as a path to education and opportunity for millions of American children, and potentially billions of children worldwide, is imminently near. Our simple mission is to ensure that every child learns how to read in first, second or third grade. If you want to see your artwork in print, please donate colorful, happy, beautiful, interesting and non-offensive artwork today! We can't use every piece of artwork that we receive. Some we will turn into downloadable pdf's with information about where you can download the FUNetix app. Other pieces we will brand with the FUNetix logo and place on items in our store. Still others we will place on our Art4Literacy Pinterest pages with a link from and to our website. Send us a high resolution photo of your artwork or a copy of your digital artwork and we will add it to our ever growing library of amazing student art. Thank you! We hope this opportunity finds you at the right place and the right time to share a small piece of yourself and your talent, in order to make a difference and an impact, to add value, in an amazing way, to help 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. Join #TheFUNetixLiteracyProject! We look forward to seeing your artwork. Email files to Art4Literacy@YouthLit.org Important: Please include your age and grade! Optional, please include your first name and last initial if you want recognition. (You may also include your last name but that is also optional.) Artwork can be anything that you've already created that's colorful, pretty, interesting, etc., or something new and specifically oriented around reading. Finally, feel free to prominently sign your work! Thank you again!!! Mr. R. Kali Woodward Founding, Executive Director American Youth Literacy Foundation

  • Experienced in website design? Share your skills to support small businesses

    COVID-19 has impacted many small businesses. Having a website is essential for them to survive but also sustain a longer-term delivery or e-commerce-based model. However, many entrepreneurs don’t have the budget, time or skills needed to design a simple website for their business. That’s where you come in! Our website design project is the perfect opportunity if you are looking to volunteer your time and talent and help an entrepreneur building a simple website (or improving their current one). Are you a good fit? This virtual volunteer opportunity is for you if you have at least 3 years of professional experience in website design and familiarity with some popular platforms such as Squarespace, Wix, Shopify, Wordpress and GoDaddy. Volunteers must be located in the United States. What will you be doing? Once approved as a volunteer, you will access the list of website design projects currently available and will be able to filter by business location (e.g. New York, Bay area) and industry. You will then connect one-on-one with an entrepreneur and assist them in creating or improving their website. What is the time commitment? This project can typically last between 30-45 days, depending on your availability. This includes some preparation and design time (flexible to your schedule) and interactions with the entrepreneur (via email, phone or video conferencing). This is a limited-scope opportunity with a clear deliverable at the end of the project. Do you provide resources to get started? We provide information about the entrepreneur’s business and website needs, and, if available, a design brief from the entrepreneur with input on their brand colors, fonts, requested functionality and other relevant information about their business.

  • Virtual: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis, Intern This Summer, Join the FUNetix Web Store Team

    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. Join our web store team! If you are interested in advertising, marketing, promotion, retail, merchandising, web store, online store, design, graphic design, fashion, business, entrepreneur, entrepreneurship, social media, sales or business development, 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 more than 17 years! We have been developing this app for about five years, and in January of this year we launched the FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App in the App Store and Google Play to help save millions of children from a lifetime of illiteracy! Now we are building a global brand and an ecosystem to deliver the app to the more than 20 million children in the United States who can't read, even though they are in school, and the millions more adolescents and young adults who have dropped out of school because they can't read. We are looking for intelligent, creative, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals with experience in both digital and print media, graphic design, Adobe Creative Suite, business and entrepreneurship, promotion, social media, sales, business development, retail, merchandising advertising and online sales. Recently we launched the FUNetix Store (www.shop4literacy, www.zazzle.com/store/funetix) as a synergistic part of our larger ecosystem designed to bring the FUNetix brand to the world and to spread awareness about the app. In addition, we have relaunched the #Art4LiteracyProject, which brings in artwork from high school, middle school and elementary school students from around the country to help us create beautiful logo merchandise to sell in our store. There is no limit to the amount of artwork that we can bring in and there is no limit to the amount of merchandise we can create and sell; but we need designers and creative merchandisers like you to come up with creative ideas, do the design and layout, and post them in our store. 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. 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 hours for them to reach a 1st grade level, and another 8 hours (12 hours total) to reach a 2nd grade reading level. Compare this to 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). Our organization is an 12 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program and we still tutor. But our focus has always been on finding a scaleable solution to the literacy crisis in America. We are looking for 3 very special people who have everything we mentioned above, including: passion, expertise and time to join our already amazing team of more than 50 people, working virtually and collaboratively nationwide, to help us continue to optimize our brand and our product selection as provide support to our comms, community outreach, web and other teams. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity to be a retail/merchandising/design/promotion/web store intern please send us a cover letter and resume to hr@YouthLit.org. The ideal candidate: is Able to work in a fast paced environment is A great communicator and collaborator has A good eye for fashion, color theory, composition, visual design, or has Experience working with web stores, promotion and merchandising, and pays Attention to detail, and Cares about education and children's literacy 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, to help them get through this COVID-19 setback, and help them surge into a future of unlimited possibility and potential.

  • Honor the lives of those we've lost to COVID-19

    COVID-19 Wall of Memories is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that runs a website of the same name which features a virtual memorial wall that holds the names and faces of people who have passed away from COVID-19 in this country. Clicking through a person's photo brings you to a summary of their life. We are seeking to fill positions in data entry. Data entry volunteers are responsible for entering each victim's story into our database, taking care to keep in mind our core principles: Ensuring the information we share is accurate, avoiding copyright violation, and recognizing potential privacy violations. Each person whose story is on our memorial wall was special, was loved, and should be remembered with honor. We obtain the stories of people honored on our memorial wall from three sources: 1) Site visitors enter information about their own loved one who passed; 2) We excerpt online obituaries; and 3) We occasionally excerpt news coverage. To excerpt online sources, we use two processes: researching online obituaries and entering them into our database. Our research associates do a standardized online search and copy and compile URLs of obits. Data entry associates enter the pertinent details from an online obituary into a standard form. Training will take about one hour with as much additional time as needed. We use Slack to communicate questions or comments, but managers are always available to answer questions or clarify issues.

  • Make A Connection - Change A Life!

    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 meaningful social connection-whether it be through telephone calls, email , or eventually, regular visits. We are looking for local volunteers who can get started now from the comfort and safety of your home! More detailed information about the program is below. 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.

All presentations will be done on a free conference call line to ensure that no contact information is shared with youth or the volunteer presenter, and to allow multiple youth participants if more than one person is interested in a topic. In addition, there will be a staff person on all calls as a moderator. Presenters are given guidelines to steer their presentations in a direction most beneficial to youth, and in an approach that allows meaningful youth feedback. We will prepare a list of questions that the youth can ask the professional guest speaker to assure the conversation is productive.

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

    San Francisco and VicinitySan Francisco, CA 94108
    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

  • Advocate for equity in Alzheimer's care!

    Alameda CountyOakland, Alameda, San Leandro, CA 94557
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Help us reduce disparities in Alzheimer's and other dementia by becoming an Alzheimer's advocacy volunteer! The Alzheimer's Association is leading the way to reduce disparities in Alzheimer's and all other dementia - by accelerating global research, driving risk reduction and early detection, and improving access to quality dementia care and support. With grassroots help from passionate volunteers like you, we've passed critical legislation and increased federal funding for Alzheimer's research five-fold since 2011. But our work isn’t done and we need dedicated advocates like you to build on this success in Congress and in every state capital. We’ll train you to advocate in a variety of ways, some of which take just an hour or two every few months. Whatever your experience and availability, we’re eager to have you on our advocacy team! Alzheimer's State Champions: cultivate multifaceted, year-round relationships with their state legislators and their office staff. Alzheimer's Ambassadors: develop deep, one-to-one relationships with their Member of Congress and their office staff. Alzheimer's Congressional Team Members: bring their own unique stories, relationships and skills to complement the work of an Ambassador. Requirements: Advocacy volunteers must have a direct, personal experience with Alzheimer's or other dementia, and be willing to share it with elected officials and others. Statistics and reason simply aren’t enough; it takes authentic, deeply felt, one-to-one communication from constituents like you to move the hearts and minds of members of Congress and state legislators. We will show you how to tell your personal story in ways that build bridges and create positive change. Please be sure to describe your connection to Alzheimer's disease in your response; applications without this information may not receive a response. Please also provide your home address, so that we can determine if you live in a legislative district where we are currently seeking volunteers. What Do Advocacy Volunteers Do? Advocates help advance Alzheimer's research, care and support by: 1. Cultivating positive relationships with their Member of Congress, state legislators and staff. 2. Meeting with their legislators in the district several times per year; while physical distancing is in place, meetings are being held by phone and video. 3. Proactively taking steps to interact with their legislators about Alzheimer’s throughout the year by attending events, writing personal letters and emails, writing letters to the editor or interacting on social media. 4. Reporting all legislative interactions on our advocacy website, www.alzimpact.org. 5. Participating in regular meetings (currently being held by video) to share information and coordinate activities with Alzheimer's Association staff and other advocacy volunteers in your area. 6. All advocates are encouraged to attend our annual Advocacy Day at the State Capitol in Sacramento in February and our National Advocacy Forum in Washington, DC in the spring. Ambassadors are expected to attend the Advocacy Forum and State Champions are expected to attend State Advocacy Day. To learn more about the Forum, visit www.alz.org/forum. Please be sure to describe your connection to Alzheimer's disease in your response; applications without this information may not receive a response. Please also provide your home address, so that we can determine if you live in a legislative district where we are currently seeking volunteers. Thank you for your interest in helping to create a world without Alzheimer's and all other dementia!

  • Help nature, get exercise, learn in local creeks and nature

    Albany, CA 94706
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    While we shelter in place to avoid spreading COVID-19, it's important for mental and physical health of all ages to get outdoors, get exercise, and enjoy nature. Help the environment, feel connected to nature and others, learn, and get healthy exercise as a volunteer with 25-year-old Friends of Five Creeks, at sites from North Berkeley to Richmond. We have several kinds of opportunities in urban nature, along creeks and shorelines and in parks: Individuals or families can "adopt" a small site or project to maintain and beautify, working with guidance but independently, on their own time. This could be as little as a monthly walk to check for specific harmful invasives. A few people can join our "weekday weed warriors," a small group working at varied sites on Tuesday mornings, with no obligation and no RSVP. We have part-time, short-term paid internships for beginning environmental professionals: students close to graduation or recent graduates seeking environmental careers. A small number of high-school juniors or seniors working part-time and short term as interns. These interns should have a demonstrated interest in the environment, be able to work semi-independently, be able to reach our sites on their own (without parents, by foot, bicycle, or transit). They should be significantly helped by the experience, e.g. through income and/or help with college admission or a future job. Email f5creeks@gmail.com for information, telling something about yourself and what you are looking for. Anyone can help clean the environment, in your neighborhood or in beautiful natural areas, on your own, with your family, or with friends. The coronavirus crisis has greatly decreased litter -- when this is over, let's keep it this way! You need gloves, bags, a grabber (available at hardware stores), and common sense -- don't pick up anything sharp or disgusting. (The California Coastal Commission's guidelines are at https://www.coastal.ca.gov/publiced/ccd/Guidance.pdf.) Many very young children love picking up trash. Older ones, and adults, can have contests, like who can find the weirdest thing (post on social media?) You also can record your results with the Ocean Conservancy's free Clean Swell app, contributing to knowledge worldwide. Myriad citizen-science projects let you enjoy the outdoors, learn about nature, contribute to knowledge, and help the environment. The free iNaturalist app, from San Francisco's California Academy of Sciences, lets you photograph and report wild plants and animals, and helps you identify them, so you learn while you contribute to knowledge. A kid-friendly companion app, Seek, makes this great for families. Projects that use iNaturalist to contribute to much-needed environmental knowledge include Redwood Watch and the California Pollination Project. Other projects with valuable environmental goals include the Western Monarch Milkweed Mapper, CalDNA (soil samples), the Cattail Monitoring Project (with the US Geological Survey) Green Watch (reporting state of outdoor places and transit), and Sky at Night (measuring light in the night sky, with the National Optical Astronomy Observatory). A good way to find the project that suits you is SciStarter.org. There are thousands: Set it to look for projects in your area, choose a topic from the menu, and look for projects with stable sponsors and clear scientific or environmental goals.

Tutors receive all the training, materials and weekly coaching required to help a second or third-grade girl or boy gain the confidence and academic skills required to be successful in elementary school, middle school and beyond. Children Rising programs are structured so that it is easy for you to step in and be effective immediately. And the reward of watching a student progress as they reach their potential is priceless. We invite you to join the hundreds of volunteers... ...who are nurturing and equipping students to rise above the challenges they face inside and outside of school. An engaged, caring community reaching children at a critical time in their life is the key to our approach. Together, we are empowering children in Oakland and surrounding East Bay communities to overcome learning loss, reduce the achievement gap created by educational inequity, and rise to their God-given potential. "’Children Rising cares so much about these kids that it invests the time and effort to train the tutors and provide us with tools to do a good job." - Linda Hawkins, Reading Tutor
