  • Digital Activist

    The work is to identify, develop, and utilize opportunities to publicize the critical need below, and create viable useful linkages. Mission: To enable marginalized students along with others to share equitably in resources and knowledge to achieve their full potential. (COVID-19 has worsened conditions.) Project: Building alliances for facilitating highly valued smaller focused interaction groups (FIGs) An unfilled need: K-12 collaborative group conversations to increase speaking, listening and diverse skill objectives are highlighted in curriculum throughout the United States. However, the collaborative conversations are not happening due to a lack of assistants to conduct groups (FIGs) small enough for students to be involved. A solution: Older and younger adults can be trained as staff/ volunteer facilitators by community colleges who would be strong allies for implementation. There can be many generational exchanges (Boom Gen to Gen Z inclusive) in their facilitator learning support groups as they enable communication and connection between diverse students. Key facts: Good oral communication skills were ranked number 1 among 15 job skills that executives and hiring managers identified as very important for new employees in a large 2018 survey 1. However, employers have trouble finding new employees with these communication skills since schools are not teaching these skills 2. Primary school speaking-listening communication skills enable reading, writing, and school/career success 3. Although speaking skills are specified in most state K-12 curriculum standards (and "Common Core"), these basic skills are the only "Core" skills where standard assessments are not conducted with mainstream students -- what isn't measured isn't done 4. The cumulative deficit is greater with disadvantaged SES (especially poverty and minority) groups 5. The addition of trained assistants in classrooms to conduct groups, small enough for students to be involved, will have great impact. Dynamic alliances will be essential for innovative policy and program promotion, as well as support of states, districts and schools in their transformative leadership initiatives for implementation.

  • CrowdDoing E-Learning Project Management Expert Volunteer Leaders Needed

    CrowdDoing E-Learning Project Management Expert Volunteer Leaders Needed. CrowdDoing is seeking through volunteers E-Learning Project Management Expert Volunteer Leaders Needed. We are developing service learning courses for project managers that use projects relevant to the SDGs and to managing for multiple stakeholders as the examples. We're creating portfolio of mini & larger online service learning-based courses and need e-learning experts, marketing experts, go-to-market experts, curriculum development volunteers, leadership team our our e-learning initiatives, project managing for stakeholder interest requires an awareness of stakeholder potential for benefit. If project managers in general thought about stakeholders and not just executive they report to that would help the world. We aim for dual use materials-free for internal volunteer project management training for volunteers and external courses. Our goal is to increase the fraction of project management that is managing stakeholder interest and non treating stakeholders like public relations. We would have the goal to shift how project managers think about managing stakeholder interests from taking the courses. Our aim is a portfolio of e-learning service learning course options having a series of free content publicly and paid content at more advanced levels which would still be free to our volunteers. Our goal would be democratizing the skills of managing stakeholder interests rather than stakeholder perceptions management. That contributes to the discourse around how to achieve stakeholder goals and to project management as a tool for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. "... "I think its partially from saying that project management learning from the social enterprise sector would accommodate the interests of project stakeholders. For example, if a project has a risk of a delay, if it is key to a stakeholder category, that is a stronger reason to delay/expand scope than if all stakeholder categories are beneficiaries to varying degrees. There are associations of people working on "complex partnerships" which is really the extension of project management to managing interests of stakeholders. That is why we want to create service learning PM online courses. Extensive experience in one or multiple of the following: 1. E-learning course development, 2. E-learning platform go-to-market, 3. UN SDGs & project management, 4. Project management training of others. 5. Project management dependency analysis training of others/teaching project management. 6.

  • Legal Advisor

    What will you be doing? Who are we? Mast Cell Action is a rare disease charity established at the end of 2015. Our aim is to provide support to patients and their families through lobbying for better recognition of the condition, tests and treatment on the NHS, fundraising to support the activities of the charity, and towards studies to demonstrate the need for greater resources for this disease. The disease is called Mast Cell Activation Syndrome and produces a wide range of unusual symptoms. It was first recognised in 1990 and a set of diagnostic criteria were agreed by a panel of international doctors in 2011. There are very few UK doctors who understand or can treat this disease, and most patients in the UK are in a medical limbo. What will you be doing? We periodically encounter legal issues, usually to do with ensuring that the charity doesn’t consciously or unconsciously transgress any legal binding laws. Your role would be to provide legal guidance on issues such as freedom of speech, equality & diversity, employment law, social media terms and possible breaches such that we as a charity do not transgress or show bias in our actions. For example, There has been some issues with moderation and management of the (Facebook) support groups. Moderators have had to deal with disruptive individuals who claim their rights are being infringed when the individual's behaviour may impact other patient members on social media negatively and the charity wants to know tits own rights if we have to exclude members but there in lies the dilemma of freedom of speech. The trustees would thus like an informed view and currently, pro-bono legal support cannot support the charity for such issues. Going forward however, we would like access to an experienced legal resource that can give us appropriate advice as and when legal issues come up in any aspect of the charity’s activities. Ideally we are seeking a practising or retired lawyer, an academic or possibly a paralegal who may need to provide input from time to time but not a predefined number of hours during a given year.. Beyond that, we are always looking for competent volunteers able to help the charity develop its activities, both in volunteer support and medical advocacy. Hence if anybody wished for a more general contribution to a young charity looking to grow, we would be pleased to discuss that with you. What are we looking for? Potentially a practising or retired lawyer, an academic or possibly a paralegal. We need somebody who is comfortable operating in the environment of a small, volunteer run charity, rather than a large corporate or established organisation, and is able to interface with trustees and volunteers on a reasonably informal basis. Vital skills: legal background and experience, preferably in charity sector or in organisations such as "Liberty". To work independently and liaise with other experts and come up with legal advice. Nice to Have: self starter, pragmatic approach. What difference will you make? To provide a legal framework to address any legal issues to make the charity more robust. Additionally to provide the confidence to the moderators whilst providing support to the patient community but also face challenges that are disruptive and may run into legal implications.

What we are looking for An experienced IT professional who is happy to operate pretty autonomously within a small organisation, liaising with the management group.

The patient community and the fundraising volunteers will benefit from regular updates and information that helps them cope. A social media presence that is regular will enhance the engagement with the patient community providing them with support where it is required.

  • Create a Virtual Storytime Library for Vulnerable Children!

    Despite the Covid-19 crisis, NAC's doors have remained opened and staff is working hard to engage and support our children and families during this difficult time. As you might imagine, the NAC community is facing very real challenges such as: Caregivers needing respite from providing childcare 24/7. Vulnerable children at increased risk of domestic violence. Students struggling with the challenges of remote learning with limited resources. Clients with ongoing mental health issues presenting exacerbated feelings of depression, isolation and fear. NAC’s social workers are at the frontline and continue to maintain contact with every client and family - both virtually and/or through in-person visits. Education Services specialists are working tirelessly to maintain the quality of educational support for our children and youth. We believe more than ever, this is a time to promote the importance of literacy in the home. In response to the current pandemic, NAC will be bringing "Story (Any) Time" to our children. We are building a library with uploaded videos of volunteers reading stories out loud. The children can log on and listen to your story - at any time! To become a volunteer, just follow these simple steps: Record yourself (video only) reading your favorite children’s book. If you don’t own such a book - take a look at your local public library website to get an ebook. If you have a pet, get them to snuggle with you and bring extra comfort to our children! Many NAC clients are bilingual learners, so we welcome readings in Spanish too. Please provide a very short explanation about why you like your chosen book. When you have finished your recording, please email volunteers@nackidscan.org. After we receive your email, we will send instructions on "How To Upload" your story. Stories bring people together, even in times of isolation. Our children and youth are aged 0-21, and you are never too old to enjoy a great tale. By sharing your favorite story with NAC children, you are not only opening their eyes to the magic, joy, and beauty in a compelling book - but also reminding them there are many people who care!

  • Seattle, WA: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis as a Community Outreach Liaison

    Seattle and vicinitySeattle, WA 98106
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    Community Outreach/ Distribution Liaison: 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 the more than 55 million children displaced from school due to COVID-19, and even to help many adults who can't read. Here is an opportunity to help close the social inequality gap, by closing the opportunity gap, by closing the education gap, by closing the literacy gap, and by creating a new era of near-100% literacy for the next generation of emerging American school children. We are looking for six, 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 their own 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, watershed moment in American education; this can either be a crisis, and a very real threat to the future success of millions of young students, or it can become an opportunity to change the American education landscape forever , by bringing literacy to millions of children who would otherwise have continued down the same path of scarcity and deprivation as so many generations before them. So many people are asking for "Real Solutions" now, not just talk, or continued, seemingly never-ending "conversations" about social reform. At the American Youth Literacy Foundation, we believe that literacy itself, second only to family and faith, is the single most "upstream" component parts of that "Real Solution;" and that literacy is the underpinning of all education; and that education is the key to every individual's opportunity for self-actualization, and the only truly scaleable, truly proven "ticket" out of the oppressive burden of poverty. 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 Xprize competition was incredibly successful at bringing awareness and attention to the use of technology as a potential equalizer in the world of education. 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 through." Compare this to millions of students who have dropped out of school, primarily because they can't read ( more than 10 million per decade (24% 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 12-year-old, nationwide, charitable 501 c 3 non-profits founded in 2008. We started out as a regional tutoring program, then became a nationwide tutoring program; but all the while, 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 (more than 80% in even the most impoverished communities), we feel that the answer we have been searching for IS in the form of an app. So for the past several years, we have been working to convert our amazing reading curriculum that teaches children how to read in 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in 12 hours. And this is where you come in. We have more than 50 people working to build, test, and deliver this app to millions of children in America's inner cities and rural communities, to the barrios and the suburbs and the American Indian reservations and everywhere in-between. But in order to do this, we need to reach the people who need it the most. And in order to reach those people and those communities, we need to hear from you, and people like you who live in those communities. We need to better understand the current state of the schools and the education system at the local level in your neighborhood, town or city. We need to more fully understand the specific challenges that illiteracy and low literacy have burdened your community with, so that we can more fully develop a workable tactical plan to reverse the literacy crisis and lift those burdens, using the FUNetix Reading App. The FUNetix curriculum is approximately 12 hours and 2,000 screens that take a child from the ABC's to a 2nd-grade reading level. Children learn the fundamentals of letters and sounds and how to blend sound symbols together to form words and sentences. The app uses a super-child-friendly, phonetic code called 21E, that makes it easy to learn how to read. The FUNetix Reading System is patented and uses a special diacritic decoding system to show children the irregular spelling patterns of English, and especially how to pronounce any English word. At the American Youth Literacy Foundation, our goal is to bring the FUNetix Reading 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 with classes of up to 40 children or more, combined with a typical "off the shelf" reading curriculum that is confusing and doesn’t scale. Children get lost, confused, frustrated 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 it doesn't have to be that way; and FUNetix is going to change ALL of this, soon! The role of a Community Liaison is as a connector. You will help Youth Lit connect to your community and many hundreds of other communities across the United States by reaching out to understand exactly how the literacy crisis is affecting people in those communities, and by finding out what specific solutions they desire, and how best we can bring our literacy app into the homes and minds of the children who need it most. A Community Liaison is someone who is passionate about ending the literacy crisis in America, and finally creating that "Equal Playing Field" that everyone has been talking about for so long. But a Community Liaison also brings key ideas and action steps that they believe can be taken in order to make that happen. Such steps may involve working with specific people in the community, advertising at select locations, connecting with specific organizations, or otherwise finding ways to reach the parents and children that are most in need of a new solution to reading and education. Working together, we will radically, positively impact communities all across the United States, by bringing "Literacy for All" to the next generation of emerging learners. We are looking for six intelligent, creative, outgoing, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals with significant real-world experience and a willingness to both talk to and listen to people, and to identify ways to best share the benefits of our app with those children in need. This is a complex undertaking and we are looking for highly proficient and organized professional-minded individuals who have a track record of success in creating positive outcomes in their communities, and who are willing to reach beyond, to other communities like their own, to bring change across America. In order to be considered for this position, please complete this Google Form- https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSct1oTaeNVTYzV-qzpn1mog9yTQo26-G7SUqCpHlfrbWmvEXg/viewform 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 (as well as on the street and on the ground) 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 within our target audience. Thank you! We hope we have given you enough information about who we are and what our mission and goals are; and we hope that 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 something, to lead them out of a life of impoverishment and into a future of unlimited possibility and potential. The specific action step that we need you to take now is to complete a google form that will be sent to you if you express interest in this position by hitting the "I'm interested" button. All of the information you provide in that Google form will help us develop a deeper understanding of your particular community and its needs. We will then contact a select number of people with follow up questions, and/or to schedule an interview. Just by filling out the form that will be sent to you, you will be making an invaluable contribution to this incredible cause! Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you and to working together to bring a future of unlimited potential to every child! Mr. R.

  • Bellevue: Help us Launch the FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App as a Funding Team Lead

    Bellevue and vicinityBellevue, WA 98004
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    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 looms large, like an impassable crevasse, separating the haves from the have-nots, the rich, the almost rich, the upper middle class, even the middle class, from the more than 100 million lower class, lower middle class, working class poor, impoverished and underprivileged Americans. We are looking for a few very special people, with funding and business development experience, either in the corporate or non-profit arena, either as an entrepreneur or upper tier management, preferably in the technology sphere, 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 viable, potential reality. What we are talking about is an adaptive learning, gamified smartphone app, called FUNetix (www.FUNetix.org), that can teach children how to read, in their own home, in an average of just 12 hours of total instruction time! We are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for 12 years using a patented "reading decoding system!" We have been developing this app for about two years (but started concepting and working on prototypes almost five years ago); and this year we will launch this incredible smartphone app in the App Store and on Google Play at or around 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 only semi-literate skills at best. And now with the displacement of 55 million children from school, for an indeterminate amount of time, the loss of reading capacity of the next generation, and the "seemingly incessant," "widening of the gap," presents a new "crisis moment" in American education, and a very real threat to the future success (in school, and in life) of millions of young children. But we believe there IS a way to bridge that gap, to make this a "watershed moment" instead of a crisis moment , by stopping that gap from widening. Universal access to literacy through FUNetix will close the opportunity gap by closing the education gap by closing the literacy gap to near zero. What happens after that, can only be imagined: a virtuous cycle of communication and learning, perhaps, between teachers and students, in ALL of America’s schools and classrooms. And what happens after that? An entire generation of nearly 100% literate young people of all races, religions, creeds, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds will, quite inevitably, reform the social fabric of the American landscape for the good, and for the benefit of innumerable generations to come. According to the U.S. Government’s "Annual Report Card," more than 20 million children in grades 3-12, in America's public schools today, can't read at anything close to a proficient level! Translated into "English," that means they are either completely illiterate ("Below Basic:" 24%), or functionally illiterate/ semi-literate ("Basic:" 43%). Fully more than half of all America’s public-school-educated children have between zero and minimal literacy skills. This travesty exists in spite of the fact that, as a nation, we spend more than $11,000 per year, per student, to deliver a public school "education." Just over 24% of all students drop out of public school, most of them in 9th grade. That's 1 million per year! Since the year 2000, we have "graduated" more than 20 million illiterate "students" into the U.S. economy, into our socio-economic and socio-political marketplace of ideas without hope and without basic survival skills. Without literacy, and without education, these young people have no chance at fulfilling their personal potential; and economic security is simply unattainable. That’s all about to change! 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 in May, 2019) named Pubbly (www.Pubbly.com). The XPrize for Global Learning was a $15 million worldwide competition created to allow app "design and development" teams from around the world to build and deliver a tablet-based app to children in remote villages in Africa, that 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 XPrize was founded by Peter Diamandis and is credited with launching the commercial space industry, including SpaceX, with the original XPrize of $10 million, created to incent teams from around the world to build a rocket that could reach low earth orbit without help from NASA or any governmental space agency or nation state; and SpaceX's founder, Elon Musk is a key benefactor and contributor to XPrize, and a close personal friend of Peter Diamandis, who, in addition to being the founder of XPrize, is also the founder of Singularity University, among other entities. Pubbly competed in the 2015-2019 XPrize for Global Literacy; and the American Youth Literacy Foundation, ( www.YouthLit.org ) dba FUNetix, FUNetix.org and the FUNetix Reading App, competed in the 2015-2020 XPrize for Adult Literacy. FUNetix and Pubbly met through our mutual participation in XPrize; and XPrize specifically encourages open source, collaborative cooperation and sharing of assets among all of its competitors. The goal is to improve the world, solve global, intractable problems, and share information and ideas to make humanity and human lives better! As an offspring of two, separate XPrize competitions, FUNetix is a perfect example of collaborative partnering between teams of people originally brought together to begin exploring an advanced technological solution to global illiteracy and global educational challenges. The American Youth Literacy Foundation, dba FUNetix, is a 12 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 (c) (3) non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program in the regional Philadelphia, Central New Jersey area and we still provide some 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 incredibly powerful, and ubiquitously critical tool (currently estimated at 80%), even into the most impoverished communities in America, we realized several years ago, that the answer to scalability we had been searching for, was going to be in the form of an app. So for the past several years we have been working to convert our amazing reading curriculum, that teaches children how to read in an average of just 12 hours, into an app that teaches children how to read in about the same time. And this is where you come in. The 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 reading-learning system, (which includes a FUN, but intensive introduction to all 44 sounds of the English language, and the basic concept of blending sound symbols into words), and another 4-6 hours for them to reach a 2nd grade reading level! Compare this to so many of our students who, as discussed above, have been in the public school system for 6, 7, 8, 9 years or more, and are still unable to spell simple words like "this, that, these, those and 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 "all volunteer," mission-centric, extended virtual network, comprised of more than fifty, 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 most closely simulate a true one-on-one tutoring experience, which has been our hallmark for 12 years. Our five graphic designers, six curriculum content developers, six engineers and all of our support teams, including project management, curriculum management, and UX/Beta testing, along with our production and engineering partner, Pubbly, have built more than 1,200 screens since March; and we are slated to complete the 2,000+ buildout by mid August. On, or about, Thanksgiving, 2020, we will deliver this incredible reading app to the App Store and Google Play, and with it, 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, where illiteracy is endemic and education and opportunity are, tragically, not universally attainable. FUNetix is real, and tangible, and life changing; and unlike so many other discussions, conversations, policies, programs and protocols, AND, unlike so many other legacy (and even brand new) reading apps, reading programs and reading curricula based on legacy phonics pedagogy, (which doesn't scale, isn't amenable to self learning and doesn't teach children how to read in 120 hours, let along 12 hours), 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. Through FUNetix, the American Youth Literacy Foundation is making English accessible to everyone! We have been preparing for this moment for 12 years, but as a matter of pure coincidence, our launch and final developmental timeline is coinciding with other powerful forces in the country and the world, such as COVID and social justice awareness and unrest. Our role in the Coronavirus recovery and this social justice enigma, is to lift up and bring real, lasting, permanent life improvement to the more than 12 million 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade emerging readers who got knocked down by the Corona virus and knocked out of school, as so much collateral damage, so that they can get back to learning and education, in a new way, with better results than ever before, as if nothing had ever happened to derail their futures. Our role in effecting major social improvement, including improvement in areas of education, opportunity and equality has been at the forefront of our mission and vision since our inception as a charitable foundation in 2008. The convergence of universal forces that is allowing the FUNetix Reading App to fall on such fertile soil is something that we cannot explain. But in order to deliver this incredible app to the children who need it most, we still need to complete three pieces of the equation: what we call "The Horse," "The Cart," and "The Payload." The Horse is the curriculum; and we are more than halfway through the conversion process from our analog to a new, super fun, super interactive, digital curriculum for kids. 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. We need to market, publicize and reach out to communities to make them aware of your creation, even if it's FREE, like FUNetix! For that, we have built our in-house Community Outreach and Distribution Team; and they are, in turn, building a network of Community Outreach Liaisons nationwide, as well as reaching out to community leaders, social media influencers, thought leaders, religious leaders, political leaders, sports and entertainment influencers and others, in order to find the best and most efficient pathways to deliver the message to the parents that literacy is within reach, and to ensure that the FUNetix Reading App gets into the hands of the children who need it most. And the Payload is the UX itself (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 multifarious interstitial spaces of American society, wherever children are in need. We are creating that support network for caring adults, which will consist of in-app information as well as web-based content that they can refer to, in order to gain a better understanding of what the app is and how it works, and how they can best assist their child or grandchild through the learning process. In addition, all of our external communications will be supported and cross connected through our website and via a variety of social media outlets. Our brand, image, content and messaging has been, and will continue to be, a collaboration between our Graphic Design, UX, Marketing and Communications, Web Development, Curriculum Content, Funding and Community Outreach teams. As we mentioned, the curriculum consists of more than 2,000, individually narrated screens. We first teach children the 44 sounds of the English language. Then we teach them how to "map," or, associate symbols to each of these sounds. We teach them how to blend those sound symbols and those sounds together to make words and sentences and, ultimately, stories. It usually takes them only 4 hours to learn how to read our super child-friendly, phonetic English code called 21E. Over the next 4 hours, children learn how to use those sound symbols as a "diacritic" pronunciation guide to help them decode ANY English word. We call this the FUNetix Magic Decoder, because it works like magic: the magic symbols above the words reveal the hidden sounds of EVERY English word! Like training wheels on a bike, children use the Magic Decoder to practice, practice, practice reading for the final four hours of the app, until the training wheels are ready to come off. Then they graduate, and are introduced into the Wonderful Content Library, where they can read all kinds of stories, books and poems, and play puzzles and games, and go on treasure hunts and virtual scavenger hunts using the newly developed reading skills that they now have. And on every screen in the Wonderful Content Library, kids have the FUNetix Magic Hat button with them, so that if they ever come across a word they've never seen before, or that they forgot how to decode, they can push the button and see the FUNetix Magic Code, and don’t have to stop and ask a grown up or a sibling, and so that they can continue on, and keep up the momentum and the pace of reading, without getting distracted, or side tracked or frustrated, or, worse yet, give up! FUNetix, the team, is a mission-focused, distributed network of currently, 48 people (and still growing), each contributing between 5 and 65 hours of volunteer time per week. Our partnership with Pubbly is contractual, and we pay for engineering, coding, animation, narration and other services. The FUNetix organization is organized into 12 teams including Project Management, Graphic Design, Curriculum Development, UX/Beta Testing, Engineering, Community Outreach and Distribution, Web Development, Funding, Marketing, Communications and Public Relations, and others. There's much more to tell. You can read more about our story, and about us, at www.FUNetix.org and www.YouthLit.org. We have much more to do to get ready for our Thanksgiving launch! As for our Business Development/Funding Team Leads, we have 2 openings left (all of our teams have 3 team leads and sometimes, additional, task specific, team members). So, we are now looking for two, very special people, who have everything we mentioned above: passion, expertise, time, etc., to join our team and help us launch the FUNetix Reading App this fall. Our Funding Team Leads will help us explore, develop, plan and execute a broad set of funding initiatives to include: Grant Writing, Philanthropic Donations, Crowdsourcing, Sponsorships, Fundraising Events, Licensing and other forms of App Monetization. The ideal candidate will have a broad, deep and sophisticated understanding of sales, marketing, technology and funding, derived from multiple years of experience, either as an entrepreneur, corporate executive, or non-profit director or board member. The Team Lead may have grant writing or crowdsourcing experience, but these specialties will also be sourced, and additional team members will be hired to meet the needs of the organization in terms of fundraising for operational (engineering, coding, Pubbly) costs, as well as marketing, distribution, expansion and ongoing initiatives to deliver the app broadly and quickly into disparate communities across America. Ultimately, our mission is to get the app, and via the app, literacy, out to the children who need it most. Thanksgiving, in many ways, will be more of a beginning than an end. It will be the beginning of a tireless effort to deliver the solution to the streets and homes and schools of America where children are trying, but endlessly failing at learning how to read. If you wish to be considered for this opportunity, please send us a cover letter and resume to HR@YouthLit.org. We are looking for intelligent, creative, enthusiastic, cheerful, optimistic individuals, who have the time, energy, expertise and desire to make a true difference and be part of something amazing! This is a complex undertaking and we are looking for highly proficient and organized professionals. Individuals interested in this position must have the experience and ability to work in a virtual environment using select networking, file sharing, and communications tools and platforms. 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, 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. 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

  • Seattle, WA: Help Solve the Literacy Crisis as a Crowdsourcing Expert

    Seattle and vicinitySeattle, WA 98125
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    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 looms large, like an impassable crevasse, separating the haves from the have-nots, the rich, the almost rich, the upper middle class, even the middle class, from the more than 100 million lower class, lower middle class, working class poor, impoverished and underprivileged Americans. We are looking for a few very special people, with fundraising, particularly, crowdsourcing expertise, either in the corporate or non-profit arena, 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 viable, potential reality. What we are talking about is an adaptive learning, gamified smartphone app, called FUNetix (www.FUNetix.org), that can teach children how to read, in their own home, in an average of just 12 hours of total instruction time! We are the American Youth Literacy Foundation, and we have been teaching children how to read for 12 years using a patented "reading decoding system!" We have been developing this app for about two years (but started concepting and working on prototypes almost five years ago); and this year we will launch this incredible smartphone app in the App Store and on Google Play at or around 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 only semi-literate skills at best. And now with the displacement of 55 million children from school, for an indeterminate amount of time, the loss of reading capacity of the next generation, and the "seemingly incessant," "widening of the gap," presents a new "crisis moment" in American education, and a very real threat to the future success (in school, and in life) of millions of young children. But we believe there IS a way to bridge that gap, to make this a "watershed moment" instead of a crisis moment, by stopping that gap from widening. Universal access to literacy through FUNetix will close the opportunity gap by closing the education gap by closing the literacy gap to near zero. What happens after that, can only be imagined: a virtuous cycle of communication and learning, perhaps, between teachers and students, in ALL of America’s schools and classrooms. And what happens after that? An entire generation of nearly 100% literate young people of all races, religions, creeds, cultures and socioeconomic backgrounds will, quite inevitably, reform the social fabric of the American landscape for the good, and for the benefit of innumerable generations to come. According to the U.S. Government’s "Annual Report Card," more than 20 million children in grades 3-12, in America's public schools today, can't read at anything close to a proficient level! Translated into "English," that means they are either completely illiterate ("Below Basic:" 24%), or functionally illiterate/ semi-literate ("Basic:" 43%). Fully more than half of all America’s public-school-educated children have between zero and minimal literacy skills. This travesty exists in spite of the fact that, as a nation, we spend more than $11,000 per year, per student, to deliver a public school "education." Just over 24% of all students drop out of public school, most of them in 9th grade. That's 1 million per year! Since the year 2000, America has "graduated" more than 20 million illiterate "students" into the U.S. economy, into our socio-economic and socio-political marketplace of ideas without hope, and without basic survival skills. Without literacy, and without education, these young people have practically zero chance at fulfilling their personal potential; and economic security is simply unattainable. That’s all about to change! The American Youth Literacy Foundation, dba FUNetix, is a 12 year old, nationwide, charitable 501 (c) (3) non-profit. We started out as a tutoring program in the regional Philadelphia, Central New Jersey area and we still provide some one-on-one tutoring.

Ultimately, our mission is to get the app, and via the app, literacy, out to the children who need it most; and for that, we still require significant funding to finish the app and implement our initial marketing and distribution strategy. We believe that with the right messaging, we will find potentially tens of thousands of people willing to help with this incredible cause and this incredible effort, by contributing small amounts. Our current needs for finishing the app and executing our marketing and distribution strategy fall between $100K and $200k; so this is not an insignificant amount. But the goal is to utilize this second round of funding to allow us to develop additional revenue streams that will take us forward into the future and allow us to continue to bring the, absolutely FREE, FUNetix 12 Hour Reading App to millions of children both in the U.S., and around the world. in many ways, our Thanksgiving launch will be more of a beginning than an end.

Every Wednesday, Kandelia hosts a small food bank at Seattle World School (a Seattle public school that exclusively serves immigrant and refugee students) for members of our community in need. We are looking for two or three volunteers to assist with packing and distributing food at Seattle World School on either Wednesday mornings (10am to 1pm) or Wednesday afternoons (1pm to 4pm). Volunteers are welcome to help either every Wednesday or every other Wednesday as preferred. Kandelia takes the safety of our staff and volunteers very seriously during the COVID-19 pandemic. When weather permits, food packing occurs outside, and when rainy, food packing is done in the large cafeteria with doors open and proper social distancing measures followed. Masks are required, and families remain outside of the building when coming to pick up food. This position requires a no-cost WA state background check. No other languages are required, but Spanish- or Vietnamese-speaking ability is a plus.

  • Street To Beach Cleanups - Earth Heroes Needed in Seattle!

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

    Our goal is to get as many Earth Heroes as possible to cleanup a location of their liking and inspiring others, while staying safe and respecting County and State orders. What are the "Street to Beach" cleanups? Simply put, it is a cleanup by yourself or with family and/or housemates with whom you have been sheltering in place. It can be around your neighborhood, at the beach, in a needy area, or anywhere actually. You could even "adopt" a specific location in need and care for it on a regular basis. Please Note: If you do a cleanup, you are doing it on your own accord and personally accepting any and all risks. Why should we do this? Neighborhood and street cleanups are fun and rewarding outdoor activities for you and your family or your other quarantine partners. Picking up litter from the streets keeps it from flowing into the ocean via our storm drains. We are now finding lots of litter, plastic bags, wrappers, disposable gloves, masks and food containers on our beaches and throughout the neighborhoods. How can we help? It is very easy! Make sure you have all your supplies ready, and go out! Don’t forget to let us know how much trash you collected so that we can add it to our total. Remember every single piece count! Follow these 4 steps to have a safe and fun cleanup: 1. Go on our website to sign the online waiver 2. Grab your supplies (bucket, gloves, pick up sticks) 3. Go outside near your home 4. Record the trash you got via the Clean Swell app (or more ways to log the trash on our website) Thank you for caring! Pacific Beach Coalition

    Mon, February 1, 2021 - Fri, April 30, 2021

    Greetings from Central Area Youth Association!! We welcome you to join our onsite Remote Learning Academic Program.* Our program is compliant with Washington state Governor's guidelines, and the CDC. We practice social distancing, the wearing of masks, personal hygiene, and building guidelines are all a part of our mandatory policy for COVID-19. We are an ELO provider and our program has been approved by Seattle Public School district. Ages; 7-11 Maximum amount of kids allowed: 8 Our youth will be focused on their homework first, and then after completion they can learn coding, creating games and apps, but our main focus is for them to continuously improve and strive for being the best they can be! If you are young or young at heart, but energetic, WE NEED YOU! We need volunteers and mentors who are passionate about education, especially S.T.R.E.A.M. education to our inner city youth! We make it fun for them, in a culturally competent environment. Not everyone learns the same, but everyone has the capacity to learn. We encourage creative learning styles! Inner city youth often times do not have access to learning opportunities and new skill sets. High on our wish list is computer coding, so those who are interested in teaching computer coding, a passion to enrich young minds, and have good communication skills, we would love to hear from you. Here is a chance to be a part of making someone else's life bright! We have a computer center, secured wi-fi, goodies to eat to keep our youths brain functioning at maximum capacity. We also have relaxation classes and exercises for optimal health; accessible to students, volunteers and mentors. If you have a degree in the social or behavioral sciences that is a plus but not required. Common work experience and working with youth is mostly what we need. Give us a call if this fits you! There may be a virtual opportunity as well, we can discuss that option if you are interested. CAYA at 119 23rd Ave, Seattle 206-322-6640. Please leave a message if no one is available to speak to you personally when you call. THANK YOU! Team CAYA! *We are proud to state that during COVID-19, our program has not had any incidents or illnesses related to COVID-19, as we have strict guidelines that we adhere to in our operations.

    Lifelong has always been an organization that stands up for communities facing discrimination and marginalization. What makes our organization unique is not our services, but how we deliver them. We know that for someone to overcome barriers to health care, our staff needs to meet them where they are in life. Instead of just checking boxes on an intake form, we truly listen. Case managers identify what basic needs aren’t being met, whether that’s safe housing, reliable transportation to doctor’s appointments, or access to healthy food. Our kitchen cooks medically tailored meals that cater to client’s specific needs, and these are hand delivered. Volunteer delivery drivers are the heart and soul of our food program, delivering thousands of bags of groceries as well as medically tailored meals each year to our clients. You will deliver food to the homes of our clients once a week. Routes take 45-60 minutes to complete on average, volunteers will deliver to 4-8 clients and there's no need to return to Lifelong after your route. If you have time in your day or on your way home from work to give back to the community, then this opportunity is the one for you. Commitment: 1 shift/week for 6 months. Qualifications: Must be 18 years or older, have a driver’s license, and a vehicle with proof of insurance. Volunteers are responsible for paying for gasoline.

  • 2021 Student Internship Opportunities

    600 128th Street SEEverett, WA 98208
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    2021 Student Internship Opportunities Hunting for a Capstone or Thesis Project? Actual Natural Resource Work Experience? Find it at the Adopt A Stream Foundation’s Northwest Stream Center! The mission of the Adopt A Stream Foundation (AASF) is "to teach people how to become stewards of their watersheds. To expand its mission capabilities, AASF has developed the Northwest Stream Center: a regional environmental learning facility with stream and wetland ecology & fish and wildlife habitat restoration as its central themes. Here, visitors learn the interconnections between forests, wetlands, streams, fish, wildlife, and people. AASF has a variety of internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students at the Northwest Stream Center. Unfortunately, these internships are unpaid. However, often we receive private contracts to do stream restoration work and hire qualified student interns as temporary employees when needed. Last year’s interns were paid for approximately 1/3 of the summer months. For those interested in forest, wetland, and stream ecology research, the Northwest Stream Center provides an excellent location on more than 20-acres next to North Creek, a tributary to the Sammamish River. This site also lends itself well to wildlife research in an island of good quality habitat surrounded by commercial and residential development. Intern opportunities for 2020 require a minimum commitment of two 8 hour days per week. Opportunities are outlined below: Stream Restoration Restoration Interns will work side-by-side with AASF Ecologists and Technicians completing a variety of salmon stream restoration tasks ranging from removing and replacing fish migration barrier culverts, stabilizing eroding stream banks using bio-engineering techniques, installing large log in-stream fish habitat structures, and maintaining riparian restoration sites. In addition Interns may be participate in fish excluding projects. Experiences gained: stream restoration construction techniques, invasive vegetation control techniques, and use of electro-shockers as part of dewatering and fish exclusion efforts required of in-stream restoration work. The majority of this work will take place during the week. Wetland Restoration & Native Plant Landscape Maintenance Become a wetland steward by maintaining a three-acre wetland that was resurrected from a gravel parking next to the Northwest Stream Center Visitors Building. Become part of a team to develop a plan to select bio-remediation plants and create and implement a planting schedule. Maintain the beautiful native plant landscape next to a 1/2-mile long Elevated Nature Trail that winds through very complex 20-acre wetland and forest area riparian next to North Creek. Participate in managing a native plant nursery that is one source of plants for AASF’s riparian restoration projects. Management activities include developing a database of plants by type/size, schedule and implement re-potting as needed, ensure plants are properly watered, and recruiting/training volunteers. Assist in managing the Trout Stream Exhibit riparian zone. Experiences gained in: wetland/riparian zone landscape enhancement and restoration benefitting both fish and wildlife (most mammals, amphibians, and birds found in western Washington), landscape design for bio-remediation, and stream riparian zone management. The majority of this work will take place during the week. Trout Stream Exhibit Aquarist Assist in the management of a 160-foot long Trout Stream Exhibit that flows into a groundwater fed pond with a surface area of approximately 1/3 of an acre. Ground water from that pond is re-circulated upstream to the headwaters via an electric pump. That exhibit was designed to provide habitat for a self-sustaining population of Cutthroat trout, sculpin, brook lamprey, signal crawfish, fresh water mussels and clams, and a diverse population of aquatic insects. Aquarist may be involved in offsite capture of aquatic species for transfer to the Trout Stream Exhibit. Experiences gained include: monitoring water quality; evaluation of aquatic residents (trout, sculpin, brook lamprey, crawfish, fresh water mussels, fingernail clams, benthic macroinvertebrates); maintaining a balance of desirable aquatic vegetation, and creating new fish habitat. Some snorkeling/scuba diving may be involved for Interns with a NAUI or PADI certificate. Potential research opportunities include: determining the affects that increasing fresh water mussel populations will have on water quality; affects of selectively increasing pond depth has on trout; affects of increasing large organic debris in the stream channel has on stream geomorphology; and affects of creating shade from log floats and/or other means on water temperature. Some activities outlined above take place 7-days-a week. Docent Naturalist After completing a two-hour orientation and a five-hour full training period completing several reading assignments and a practical exam on stream/wetland/forest/ and stream ecology, Docent Naturalist (nature trainers) will lead interpretive tours past the Trout Stream Exhibit onto the Elevated Nature Trail at the Northwest Stream Center. Candidates must be able to share complex scientific information to small audiences of up to 10 adults and youth - we will teach you the science, but you must enjoy speaking to diverse audiences. Docent Naturalist must also commit to a minimum of two shifts per week during the internship period and successfully complete a background check. The majority of tours will take place Thursdays through Sundays. Duties and Responsibilities Duties and Responsibilities Vary By Position However expect the following: * Planting and maintaining riparian vegetation around the streams and associated wetlands, managing invasive plants * Installing log grade control structures to prevent gravel from flowing downstream and or to create fish habitat * Monitoring stream flows * Monitoring changes in the biota (vertebrates and invertebrates) in the Trout Stream Exhibit and at stream restoration sites at various locations * Monitoring temperature, dissolved oxygen, conductivity and other protocols as required * Maintaining Trout Stream Exhibit systems including: Cleaning water re-circulation intake screen; Cleaning Viewing Windows; Removing invasive vegetation from the adjacent Entry Trail * Harvesting aquatic plant growth in the Exhibit’s pond * Monitor wildlife use of the Trout Stream Exhibit stream and wetland complex * Capturing fish from nearby North Creek and transferring fish to the exhibit per AASF’s permit from the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (use traps, nets, seines, and an electro-shocker) * Create topographic maps using transit and level * Analyzing data * Other duties as required Qualifications Students enrolled in an accredited two or four-year college or university; graduate students; and new or old grads are encouraged to apply. Must be able to work under strenuous field conditions, be able to carry up to 40 pounds of materials, and comfortable work in stream and wetland environments.

    We are a newer nonprofit, whose sole mission is to feed hungry students for the weekend. In the Seattle Public School District there are 52,000 students in 98 schools. Out of that 20,000 qualify for free and reduced lunch. Out of that, 3044 are identified as homeless through the Mckinney Vento Federal Act which qualifies them as having no adequate nighttime residence. They are on the street, car, shelter, hotel, or doubled up. For many of those MKV students, they rely solely on the food at school, so from Friday lunch to Monday breakfast it's a long time. We hope to fix that with a weekend hunger bag that has 13 items for them to take home and eat for the weekend, filling a belly which would have gone empty. Due to covid, we are currently serving 2300 students in 47 schools. We hope to grow so that no MKV student goes unserved. This is what a normal week looks like. M- 8:30am-11 we prep the tables and inventory for the Tuesday fill T- 7:30am-9 or 9-11 we fill over 1000 bags, putting food that was set out from Mondays team into the bags.
