    Crypto Impact Potential Content Writer Volunteer at CrowdDoing We are seeking a highly skilled, adaptable, and reliable volunteer marketing associate to help take our initiative to the next level. In this position, you will be part of a dynamic volunteer team of professionals who plan and implement our marketing, and advertising activities. You should be familiar with analysis and market research, product and service promotion, and anticipation of customer behavior. Crypto Impact Potential Content Writer Volunteer at CrowdDoing CrowdDoing Crypto Impact Potential Background Information: CrowdDoing's crypto-based effort to achieve social impact together has made progress. We are researching the impact potential of crypto approaches and the risks to these approaches. We are utilizing the blockchain space to find ways to educate the public and promote change to various social impact areas, such as helping the unbanked, renewable energy, medicine, research, supply chain, etc. Our community draws from a host of varying backgrounds with all levels of expertise, including writers, technologists, finance, operations, cryptographic enthusiasts, students and others. Through the project activities, participants impact social good and benefit with learning from each other, particularly in areas that you may be interested and in the crypto space. A brief summary history of our Crypto Impact Potential activities: Market Manipulation Risk Over 2017-2019, we have curated a list of potential crypto projects that may be directly or indirectly adding to social change for good (115 Tokens). Our team Of those projects, they have been refined to a smaller list (approximately 45 projects) of viable crypto projects that are liquid and have potential social impacts (link: Social Impact Crypto Fund - Analysis). We have reviewed these crypto impact potential digital assets for their risks of achieving goals in the public interest and with regards to whether there are red flag risks that are visible from public information. With the shorter list of crypto projects, a further analysis was made to determine if there has been market manipulation. These activities are being captured into a publications document that folds in the findings of market manipulation. To help promote awareness of crypto projects that are trying to impact certain areas of social impact, for example, green energy or micro lending, we are trying to create indexes comprising of a grouping of crypto projects to show trends in how those 'asset class’ are performing relative to the broader crypto market and how their social impact score may be as they get closer to achieving their social impact goals. The indexes are structured similar to how the Dow Jones or S&P 500 indexes provide information, in that they provide a measurement to how the overall financial performance is within that group. For example, if the Dow Jones index is in the red or negative for the day, it’s an indicator that the overall stocks making up the Dow Jones index have decreased in stock price value for the day. From the same set of 45 crypto projects, each project is flagged with a social impact focus. With the social impact grouping, those crypto projects can be part of their respective index (For example: Crypto project flagged as a green energy impact can be part of a Green Energy Index).

  • From Georgia or Pennsylvania? Help your friends vote!

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    While the pandemic may prevent us from being politically active in real life, it won’t stop us from mobilizing online! Turnout Nation is a non-partisan network of passionate people working to increase turnout in US elections. Our movement is carried by Captains, volunteers who recruit 10 people in their social circle to vote. The main responsibility of a Captain is to get their friends to commit to voting by creating an ongoing dialog about the importance of voting and how to get it done. They use our easy to access resources to provide up-to-date information on registration and voting to their connections until election day. We are invested in this methodology because it works! In a randomized control trial run by Dr. Donald Green from Columbia University, our relational organizing was proven to be 10x more effective than door-to-door canvassing. How you can join the network: Join our Captain community by finding 10 family members, friends, and acquaintances you’ll get to vote! Captains enter their 10 names in our android/iOS app to check their registration and voting status, and can recruit other Captains, thereby multiplying their impact. We only use data to give Captains this information and will never sell data. We will never ask for the contact information of voters or attempt to contact them. Protecting the information of Captains and voters is our top priority. Captains that want to contribute more time outside of helping their 10 voters can Join the Support Team and help with research, content creation, and other technical projects, and help us recruit more Captains in our target states. Why it Matters: Just over half US citizens voted in 2016 and states are increasingly decided by razor thin margins. By using an effective turnout method, you can have a big impact. The work doesn’t stop after the 2020 presidential election. Our community is invited to keep using our platform to increase voter turnout for other local and statewide initiatives and elections. Turnout Nation is a non-partisan, fiscally sponsored project under the Social Good Fund, a 501(C3) non-profit. For general inquiries, please visit our website.

    We are in the process of building an international team for the purposes of addressing the shortage of ventilators and medical professionals in relation to the current crisis. (Covid 19) We are setting up a trust in New Zealand for this purpose as I have initiated this team and reside in New Zealand. Also New Zealand systems are remarkably easy to deal with. What we are needing is legal support with regards to managing the risk in relation to the ventilators we are manufacturing, volunteer medical professionals together with other support individuals. We also need to be indemnified against the actions or in-actions of our volunteers. All risk factors need to be isolated. We are not selling the ventilators but will make them available in the context of a charitable trust. We need to be indemnified against the end users particularly since a large percentage of those needing ventilation are going to die with others suffering long-term injury as result of the virus and possibly treatment injury. It is well known that improper use of a ventilator can also cause harm. End user agreements need to be produced. We are also accepting financial contributions which of course needs to be managed safely. if you think that you would be able to contribute your expertise either wholly or in part or in regards to other matters we have not considered, we would love to hear from you.

  • Data Visualiser

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    NoSchoolViolence.org is revolutionizing the way we understand and reduce school violence. We research police or social responses to violence in order to create new types of= databases. In order to do this, we are completing case study analyses of every school shooting since 1990. Our new database will provide data visualization insights from pattern analysis, treating each shooting as an ecosystem of interrelated elements. This is a radically different approach to school violence data because 99% of existing data on school violence are trend reports and provide no ability to analyse school violence patterns. We are seeking research assistants for this project. Our teams of researchers need support in cleaning up our data sources and using them to create effective visualisations. Ideally, you will have experience of data visualisations (scatter, line, bar and box plots, maps, and histograms) as well as knowledge of analytics (clustering, classification, timeseries, linear and polynomial regression). We also assume that you have background in using Alteryx and Tableau together in order to produce effective data visualisations.

  • Cat Rescue - Foster homes needed for kittens thru adult cats!

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    FOSTER HOMES NEEDED We need volunteers who are able to take Fancy Cats Rescue cats into their homes for a period of 30 days or longer. Typically, this period gives the cats a break from their time in a cage at the adoption center, often a much needed change of scene! Also new intakes: young kittens with or without their mother, ill cats, or cats recuperating from surgery need foster homes. A cat can benefit from socializing with a family. The foster program also helps FCRT learn more about an individual cat's habits and personality to better help find that perfect forever home! FCRT assumes costs of medically necessary vet visits and treatment, and the foster home provides food and litter. Foster homes are also required to transport their foster cats to and from adoptions for showing, usually around once or twice per month. Adoption Events are held all around the Northern Virginia area on Saturdays and Sunday. New foster homes will be given an introduction to fostering training and have support from current homes for questions. This is the perfect opportunity for someone who isn't sure if they are ready to own a pet and wants to gain some experience before adopting. GETTING STARTED: A Home Visit is required by State Law. Let us know any preferences on cats you'd like to foster and join a great team with lots of resources to help you take care of well deserving kitties in your home! Please complete the foster appliacation here: http://fancycats.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=35&Itemid=18

If social enterprises and impact funds could collaborate to reduce the friction in capital access, this could help them access more of the right expertise as they need it. This approach can allow a diverse set of sweat-equity- staff to participate in early-stage social enterprises. This kind of flexibility can be made possible if a fraction of sweat-equity-staff remuneration could be secured in a portfolio of social enterprises, rather than only one.c The Systemic Change Fund connects the impact community of experts, CrowdDoing volunteers, and institutions able to provide a range of in-kind services and goods-to be able to undertake collaborative capacity-building in support of social enterprises and social innovation. More people could eventually be able to economically afford to work on what they love, if sweat equity staff could achieve economic diversification comparable to impact investors. Social enterprises are already places for inspiration, but they rarely have the capital to pay for help; their equity is a large, undiversified risk for the sweat equity investor.

Genesis partners with a capacity-building group of allies, to support different kinds of social innovation and social enterprise goals, through revenue-share-grounded-based in-kind lines of credit to participating social enterprises.

  • Bring Hands-on STEM Back to Schools!

    This is a virtual opportunity
    Mon, August 24, 2020 - Wed, September 30, 2020

    At Science from Scientists, our mission is to teach and inspire the next generation to identify and solve real-world problems by improving STEM literacy. We usually do this by bringing charismatic scientists into a classroom with a set of materials to teach hands-on science lessons to students. Students typically work in teams and share these materials. With the pandemic, we have to change how we operate but keep our mission the same. This upcoming academic year, complying with the expected Covid material sharing safety guidelines, we have begun a new adventure of building out individual student activity kits for every student, for every lesson. Overall, we’re expected to build over 140K over the course of the school year! I’m reaching out because we need your help with building out our student kits. I understand these are very odd times for all, and getting together in groups for volunteer events has its own challenges. We’re working through a process to make sure everyone remains safe through this process as we continue on our mission. There could be opportunities for groups to volunteer at our office, outside somewhere, or even virtually for individuals at home while having a fun Zoom call. We can certainly be creative in how this comes together, and could use all the help we could get. We are looking for volunteers to help build kits for the upcoming school in August/September. Send us a message if you are interested in helping out!

In their 20's they often suffer homelessness, may be single parents, have been incarcerated, and are struggling to create a better life for themselves. We provide a robust financial literacy program that includes workshops and one-on-one mentoring over the course of a year. This gives them not only the basic information they need to make financial decisions, but also something they often have not experienced - a caring individual who is there for them over the course of a year, someone who listens to them and empowers them, who gives them the message through their caring that they matter. The work we do is in demand. There are thousands of women and men who need and want our services, and to expand the work we do we need to hire staff. To this point we have used volunteers for almost everything we do. While we have volunteers working on grant proposals to foundations, we also want to create some crowdfunding to generate some much needed funds. If you have a successful track record in this, please consider bringing your expertise to 50/50 Leadership so that we can serve more of our deserving population.

On Friday, August 7, we’re getting together (virtually) to research contact information for local candidates that will be on November's ballot.

One hour shifts are available from 2:00pm-5:00pm EST (but we'd love to see you the whole time if you're able!). We'll have an official playlist, exchange summertime stories, and try to get as many candidates' contact information as we can. After our work, we'll hang out together on a virtual happy hour.

  • Star+ Mentor - Virtual Volunteer Opportunity

    This is a virtual opportunity
    Tue, September 1, 2020 - Mon, November 30, 2020

    At its core, Starfish Initiative is a college access and readiness program that succeeds through personable and empowering mentorships. Our college-educated Mentors help our Scholars to take ownership of their educational pathway starting their freshman year. As a Star+ Mentor, you will be paired with a small group of 3-5 Scholars throughout their first semester of high school. During this time, we hope that you will utilize your experiences and knowledge to have discussions with your Scholars about SMART goals, communication skills, self-advocacy, and many more factors that will be impacting them as they transition to high school and begin their journey with mentorship. Ultimately, we hope for you to be a support for them by assisting in character development and enabling them to start gaining skills and comfort with a mentor. To our Scholars, our Mentors are the people who stand beside them, believe in them, and help them achieve their vision of success. In your semester commitment, we ask that you and your Scholars meet virtually for five sessions throughout the semester, with meetings taking place roughly every three weeks. Additionally, we ask that you do a quick check-in with them on the off weeks and complete a log of each of your sessions. However, we will be here to support you every step of the way. Upon completion of a background check, we will set up a training with you to cover our mentoring model, review topics that you will discuss during your meetings, and answer any questions you have about this exciting opportunity. You will also be assigned to a member of our staff that will have scheduled check-in calls throughout the semester and will support you in any way necessary. If you’re interested, you can visit https://forms.gle/BtRfeszdAHdtVsk19 for details and an application. Thank you for considering the opportunity to make a difference in a young Scholar's life! *Due to the current pandemic, this volunteer opportunity will be completely virtual, so we ask that you have the ability to engage with staff and Scholars accordingly.
