Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our gola is to equip every family, school and organization the the tools, training and technology they need to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to reach their maximum potential.
Our main initiatives are:
Rolfing/massage for babies, children and families. Touch is an extraordinary tool to enhance a child’s growth and development and is critical in the beginning of life. Despite the common sense of it, the practice is far too uncommon.
We promote the benefits of massage for babies & children through our website www.newbabymassage.com We also have a free download Your Baby’s first massage.
We are video taping the benefits of Rolfing for babies and children as well. Our founder Robert Toporek studied directly with Dr Ida P Rolf the founder for over 4 years. He was and continues to be the project manager to document, and promote the benefits of Rolfing for babies, children and families. WWW.Mypostureperfect.com.We are beginning a new era of work in training and developing other practitioners...
Baby & Child Massage: To promote the book published by our founder Robert Toporek "The New Book of Baby & Child Massage". And to train parents in this powerfully effective hands on approach to raising their babies & children.
To literally End the Digital Divide. Our unique approach of providing computers to families in need gives everyone an opportunity to contribute and make a difference. We have now collected, refurbished and distributed over 10,000 low cost computers to families, schools and organizations throughout our region and around the world.
Our donors of equipment benefit because they know their donation is going to increase the brainpower of the next generation instead of clogging our landfills.
Our volunteer’s benefit by learning more than they ever dreamed about repairing computers and helping a small non profit make a huge difference. They do this by directly working with other volunteers as well as directly with our recipients.
Our financial donors benefit by seeing how sometimes just a little contribution can make a big difference.
Our recipients are asked to contribute financially because we believe in this program being a hand up not a hand out. They are also required to volunteer for a minimum of two hours this helps us help other families. We also require everyone to write both an initial letter requesting the computer and a follow up letter one month later that helps us document the difference we are making.
Project Playground. Though we successfully built a playground in one of the worst drug neighborhoods in North Philly the City ofPhiladelphia in its infinite wisdom tore it down. Our goal is to one day rebuild that playground.
Within each of these initiatives we need volunteers specific to each mission as well as administrative volunteers that can relate to our project as a whole instead of as a sum of the parts.
We need financial volunteers to administer our finances;
We need administrative volunteers that can manage the flow of paper work.
We need media, graphics, video and any other volunteers that just want to make a difference.
We offer classes in Baby & Child Massage.
We collect,repair and distribute used computers to economically challenged families.To date we have found homes for over 10,000 refurbished computers.
We have built a playground in one of the regions worst drug infested areas and are expanding our efforts to transform this neighborhood.
We are woking on bringing the latest technology on brain development into every home.
