Funetix Logo_2022

Have you ever wanted to do something AMAZING to change the world but didn't know where to start?

Here is an opportunity to join the American Youth Literacy Foundation, an all- volunteer organization, founded in 2008 and dedicated to providing a gateway to a future in which all children, in every classroom in America, learn how to read by the end of 3rd grade. Our mission is to save millions of children from a lifetime of illiteracy.

We started as a tutoring organization in 2008 and, throughout 2020 we created an app, based on our patented reading curriculum, that takes kids from the ABC's to a 2nd grade reading level through an amazing journey that's fully narrated and tastefully animated, and gamified just enough to create an immersive, interactive environment that captures kids' attention and imagination and launches them to literacy in a fun and easy way.

With the FUNetix app, 100% free download and use, any child can learn how to read in 12 hours, and in America’s public schools today, there are millions of children who can’t read or are struggling to read.

Right now, we are looking to expand our incredible Team FUNetix and we are looking for a skilled HR Team Member.

The HR Team Member will be responsible for meeting hiring goals by filling open volunteer positions with talented and qualified candidates. This entails sourcing and screening candidates, conducting interviews, and coordinating the interview process, all while ensuring candidates have a pleasant experience.

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 something, to lead them out of a life of impoverishment and into a future of unlimited possibility and potential.

So, if this sounds like something that you have the time for and interest in, and if you have the confidence and ability to work in a virtual environment using select networking and communications tools and platforms, then please reply to this listing.

We look forward to hearing from you and speaking with you about the future of literacy in America.

Description

FUNetix is a patented, science-based, and incredibly simplified way of teaching reading to children that's available to parents and children anywhere in the United States and anywhere in the world. The FUNetix 12 hours Reading App is available in the App Store, Google Play store and Amazon App store.

FUNetix is 19-years-new, but in some ways, it is more than 2,000 years old.

Indeed, the patented FUNetix Reading Decoding System is rooted in an ancient methodology that shows readers how to see the hidden sounds in every word.

FUNetix earned its patent by borrowing the time-tested method called "diacritics" (which was developed more than 2,000 years ago by the Greeks, and adopted more than 1,000 years ago by the Hebrew and Arabic languages, to teach ALL children how to read those languages), and uniquely, completely and systematically applying it to English in a child-friendly and simple way.

FUNetix teaches children how to "map" or "marry" all 44 sounds of the English language to the letters and letter combinations that make up English words. This mapping (made easy by diacritics) takes all of the guesswork out of "sounding out" words.
