  • 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.

This is a limited-scope opportunity with a clear deliverable at the end of the project. Do we 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, and other relevant information about their business.

  • Help Us Tell the World about Wells Bring Hope

    If you have any experience in the world of Public Relations, we'd love to have you join our team. As a charitable cause, we are worth supporting, and here's a few important reasons why: We fulfill the most human of needs - safe water. We do it in the poorest country in the world - Niger, West Africa. We direct 100% of every donation to funding water wells. We're an all-volunteer nonprofit. We've impacted the lives of over 700,000 people in our 13 years of operation. So, come on board with us and make your magic with public relations communications/plans that can help us attract donors, supporters, volunteers! Skills Required: Good writing skills, both in terms of creativity and clarity of communication Ability to find channels of communication that target an audience ages 21-35 Good verbal communications skills Able to identify and reach out to influencers and non-traditional media to generate interest in our cause, people willing to help spread the word. Who We Are: Wells Bring Hope is committed to drilling wells that bring safe water and sanitation to rural villages in Niger - the poorest country in the world - where one out of seven children dies before their 5th birthday. The burden to get water falls on women and girls who walk 4-6 miles a day to find water, which is often contaminated. Wells Bring Hope was founded in 2008 by founder and president, Barbara Goldberg. Since its inception, WBH has funded over 700 wells, impacting the lives of over 700,000 people. When a well is drilled, child mortality drops by over 70%; girls go to school and women have the time to work and earn money for their families. We view the drilling of a well as the first step in reversing a downward spiral of poverty. Working with our partner, World Vision we provide 15+ years of education in sanitation, hygiene, and well maintenance for each village where we drill a well. As an all-volunteer nonprofit, we regard those who work with us as the "lifeblood" of our organization. Your volunteering is more than just a drop in the bucket, it is life changing. We invite you to join our cause and help make a lasting impact on the lives of others. Please send your resume to Ida@wellsbringhope.org. We look forward to hearing from you.

  • Friends Child Care Supporter

    The children in Tanzania always need extra support as they are vulnerable. Given that the schools and day care centers are underfunded with limited resources, the childcare project always appreciates the support, love, and care provided to the children as well as any advancements to enhance the capacity of the institutions. This program is very important. Childcare consists of providing basic education, playing games, teaching the essentials of healthy living, and working alongside supervisors to improve and run the center. Volunteers may also assist in basic tasks such as cleaning, simple renovation, and cooking. Tanzanians are very friendly, conversational, and hospitable. There are general safety rules that enhance the cultural experience. Our accommodations are safe spaces protected by high security and are located at a safe neighborhood. Volunteers will be working with placement directors and other local staffs; please be cooperative. It is heavily advised that volunteers do not go out at night alone, especially without a local guide or coordinator with you. It is also best to be very careful with your belongings when outdoors. Foreigners in general are targets for pick-pocketing and theft. We advise against carrying too much cash, bringing expensive items with you, and leaving your possessions unattended. Volunteers will be working with 12+ organizations as partners while conducting the volunteer program. You can work with schools, medical placements, and other fulfilling programs. Medical placements require a 80 USD fee. Volunteers should follow these roles: Attend to their duties at the placements from Monday to Friday. In the case of changing placements, the volunteer has to have a meeting with all the staff at the current placement. Stay at the placement for the required time (hangovers cannot be excuses not to attend to your duties). Report to the coordinators, supervisors, or placements whenever sick or unable to attend; it is best to provide prior notice. Volunteers should expect to be involved in working with a younger age group in schools, day care centers, and the likes. The conditions in these centers and institutions might not be what you expect, and the approaches to the environment can differ. It is better to approach this project with limited or no expectations. Rather, expect to be proactive and adapt by initiating ways to improve the conditions, as any activity can be assigned to any volunteer. The childcare project involves teaching, playing with and caring for the children, assisting teachers and staff in providing basic education, teaching hygiene and healthy living, as well as other activities like cooking, cleaning, and preparing children for school. The volunteers can also engage in implementing class schedules, creating class decorations, and enhancing the capacity of the centers by assisting in advancing the administrative departments. It is imperative to familiarize yourself with the Tanzania curriculum. Participation in any of these activities depends on how comfortable you are with tending to the task provided. If a volunteer feels uncomfortable with a task, it is okay to be substituted with a member of staff. Volunteers are not required to bring anything on your volunteer placements, but if you feel like donating and sharing it will be appreciated. There are many needs due to the limited resources the centers have. COVID-19 Measures in Tanzania at the moment: Upon entering Tanzania's Airport, one has to present Covid-19 tests not less than 72hrs since taken. At the Airport, one will be examined again by health officials; if the test comes out negative still, you are free to go ahead into Tanzania It is called a Rapid test, Furthermore, One can also see health precautions and measures on their embassy's website. NOTE;Covid tests not more than 72hours since tested before entering the current country Typical day Description In general, volunteers have the freedom to choose how they spend the day. However, a daily routine is recommended and may be coordinated with the project coordinators based on your program. A general day may look like this: Breakfast between 6:30 and 7:30am Commuting to placement via public transport During your time at the center, you will observe culture differences within the practice in Tanzania. According to your skills, qualifications, and experience, you will have many opportunities to interact with the children. The hours are usually from 8:30am-3:00pm depending on how busy the day is. Lunch between 12:30am and 3:00pm either at the placement or at the accommodation Placements end usually between 2pm and 4pm depending on the project Free time for the rest of the day and preparation for the placement the day after (if necessary) Soup and bread will be 05:00 pm Dinner between 6:30pm and 7:30pm Visiting a house of babies after you come back from your placement or during the weekend. Program duration The Program commencement includes the night before your start date. If you choose to arrive before the starting date, you will have to pay extra according to the days of your stay. The duration of your stay and program is counted in weeks. For instance, if a volunteer is registered for 4 weeks and the start date is January 1st, the program fee accommodates the night of December 31st until January 28th respectively. Travel and leisure holidays are of no exception; they are within the program duration. If a day or more is taken for travels in the 4 week program, the end date will remain the same. There is the possibility for program extension whenever necessary. A one day extension costs 18 USD, where as more than a week would be assigned program fees in regard to the duration of the stay. It is advised that if volunteers require an extension, they should provide a week's notice prior to the end of their original program.

The volunteer house can host up to 30 volunteers at one time. Volunteers can expect to share a room with one to five other volunteers of the same gender. The house provides a comfortable and warm stay with running water and electricity. However, it is important to note that there are often power outages which may affect availability of hot water. Bedding is provided, which includes a pillow with pillow case, bottom and top sheet. A mosquito net is also provided. You will need to bring your own towel and toiletries. In the volunteer house, there is a cook who prepares meals and a cleaner who keeps the place clean and tidy. Safety is paramount, therefore there is also a security guard during day and night. Staff members are available on a daily basis during the week, and via phone over the weekend. All volunteers under the age of 18 years are accommodated in a separate room in the volunteer house. To access the internet during your program, we recommend bringing an unlocked mobile phone and purchasing a local SIM card in Arusha. The local staff will assist you with this upon arrival. Food and Drinks One of the greatest ways to explore Tanzania is to eat like the locals. To make things easy for you, your program fee covers the cost of your main meals, which will be cooked by the in-house mamas. Because we choose to partner with international people, the mamas will usually be cooking food typical to the Tanzanian taste. This is an authentic way to get a taste of the wonderful flavors of Arusha, and immerse yourself fully in the local culture. All programs will include options for vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, and other diets. You should note any dietary requirements in your application so we can make sure the program caters to your needs beforehand. The number of meals provided varies from program to program. Our programs fee covers breakfast, lunch, dinner, soup and some snacks at evening. The project fee includes three meals per day, 7 days per week. Meals generally consist of authentic Tanzanian cuisine, with some western style dishes. A typical breakfast may entail eggs, bread with butter and jam, pancakes, fruits, tea and coffee. Lunch and dinner usually contain options of meat and fish as well as vegetables and fruits. Rice, potatoes, pasta, and fries may be served, topped with typical Tanzanian sauces and stews. We are extremely mindful of food allergies and will adapt to requests accordingly. Airport Pickup The program fee includes airport pickup. It takes 45 to 60 minutes to ride to Arusha from Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO). You will be picked up by a coordinator with a driver from our ground team. The ground team will be active to get to the airport on time and communicate well. Note: When you exit the arrivals area you will see a coordinator with a sign of Natembelea Africa Volunteer Residency logo. Please don't look for your name, look for the sign. Wave and our team will see you. On the way to the volunteer house, the coordinator will give you a short briefing about the country and Arusha in general. We will give you a paper with your name, with full information about your placement and details. You will get to meet and know the ground team while giving you a house tour. We will show you your room, and the next day you will have orientation. QUESTIONNAIRE Is Tanzania safe? Tanzania is a rich and diverse country with different tribes, religions, and customs. Tanzanians are very friendly, conversational, and hospitable. There is a general safety that enhances the cultural experience. Our accommodations are also safe spaces provided by high security and are located at a safe neighborhood. Visa All volunteers must have a Work Visa to volunteer in Tanzania. This is because people are not allowed to volunteer in Tanzania under a Tourist Visa. A Work Visa costs $300 USD for US citizens and $250 USD for non-US citizens, which is only accepted in the form of US Dollars. Once you are registered as a volunteer in our organization, we will provide you with the relevant address and contact details in order to fill the Immigration forms. Sometimes Immigration officers request large bills (100 and 50 dollar bills) and will reject smaller bills such as 20 dollar bills. This is not common, but it is best to be prepared! Vaccination & Treatment We highly recommend you to consult your doctor for advice on immunizations. We all understand human being get sick, we have several hospitals and clinics in town in case volunteer get sick and the organization will ride you to the hospital for free with a coordinator to assist , and there are many pharmacies available to get medicine. Certificate after your program We appreciate your time! After your program ends we will provide you with a certificate of completion. Criminal background check Our first priority is safety. Safety for our volunteers and for the people receiving services in our volunteer programs. This is standard for any quality volunteer program. Insurance Tanzania is a safe country and we will do our best to ensure your safety and well-being but illnesses happen and sometimes unfortunate incidents such as theft happen. Travel insurance will pay for your medical bills if you become ill and will cover expenses if something were lost or stolen. Speak local language (Swahili) You do not need to know it but learning a few words and phrases will be helpful. There are many helpful sites that can help you before you arrive and we will help you when you are here. What to bring with me, We recommend to bring mosquito net, flashlight, long-sleeved clothes, mosquito repellent, copy of your passport and ID - best not to carry your identification with you, you can bring with you toys and gifts as well for children and your coordinators and/or teachers Going tours and safaris during your program Of course! Tanzania is a beautiful country and we would not want you to miss out on seeing some of the wonderful places here. We can help you arrange tours and safaris at discounted rates for our volunteers. I'm here for you if you have any questions or concerns. Our whole team is looking forward to welcome you at our project site. Warm regards from Tanzania, Schola Ndimgwango

  • National History Day Judging

    Did you know that most History Day students work harder on their National History Day projects than on any other school assignment? Your mission is to create a safe space for students to share their work, to provide helpful feedback and encouragement, and help them become lifelong learners of history. In turn, we hope you come away inspired and energized by our young historians. FAQs What qualifications are needed to be a History Day judge? No qualifications are required to judge a History Day event. However, judges should possess an interest in history and be comfortable interacting with students in grades 6-12. Judging involves evaluating projects with a critical eye and offering students constructive feedback on their work. How much time do I have to commit? A judging session typically requires a minimum of 6 hours. This includes an orientation followed by examination of student work, interviews with students, and determination of top entries. Judges who review Historical Paper and Website entries have a slightly different schedule with a similar time commitment. Judges are invited to participate or view an orientation webinar prior to the competition, but it isn't required. What do judges do during History Day? The basic task of judges is to evaluate students’ entries and provide both positive and constructive feedback that is essential to the learning process. Judging teams will consist of two or three members, with a mixture of experienced and new judges. Judges evaluate the student entries, with time to interview the student(s) about their project. Judges fill out the evaluation sheets and come to consensus on the winning entries.

  • 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.

  • Roots of Empathy Instructors for Program Delivery in Hawaii Elementary Schools - All Islands

    What is Roots of Empathy? Roots of Empathy is an evidence-based program that has shown significant effect in reducing levels of aggression and bullying among school children while raising social and emotional competence and increasing empathy. The program reaches elementary school children ages 5 to 13. Roots of Empathy is delivered internationally in Canada, New Zealand, the United States, the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England, Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, Costa Rica, the Republic of Korea and Norway Since 2000, there have been many independent evaluations of the effectiveness of Roots of Empathy. Results have shown a significant decrease in aggression and increase in pro-social behavior in Roots of Empathy classes compared to classes of children who have not participated in Roots of Empathy, and that these improvements in behavior are maintained, or continue to improve, at least three years after program completion. Our Goals: To foster the development of empathy To develop emotional literacy To reduce levels of bullying, aggression and violence, and promote children’s pro-social behaviours To increase knowledge of human development, learning, and infant safety To prepare students for responsible citizenship and responsive parenting What does the Roots of Empathy program look like? At the heart of the program is a neighborhood infant and parent who visit the class every three weeks, for the family visit, over the school year. The Roots of Empathy Instructor also visits the week before and the week after each family visit (pre and post visits) to prepare and reinforce teachings using a specialized lesson plan for each visit. Children in Roots of Empathy classrooms develop executive functioning skills develop emotional literacy develop emotional regulation develop resilience learn to challenge cruelty and injustice learn to form consensus, contributing to a culture of caring in the classroom During the training, Instructors are given all Roots of Empathy learning materials necessary to deliver the program. Throughout the first year, Instructors are supported by a Mentor through phone calls, email messages and a classroom visit. Roots of Empathy Instructors Are members of the community with diverse professional and personal backgrounds, including, but not limited to: non-teaching school staff and retired teachers, health care, early childhood education, social work, guidance counseling, speech therapy and recreation, and policing Receive certification through the Roots of Empathy training program Deliver all aspects of the Roots of Empathy curriculum Work closely with volunteer families, schools, and teachers outside and inside the classroom Visit their classroom 27 times throughout the school year* *Due to COVID, when looking ahead for next school year we are prepared to meet each schools needs - if that’s in person with the traditional program that’s wonderful, but if that’s not yet appropriate then we have a plan for that too.

  • 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
