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

    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 have set up a trust in New Zealand for this purpose as the organization founder resides in New Zealand. 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, and protect our volunteers from unfair liability as well. 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 a 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.

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

    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. To address the critical lack of highly qualified COVID-19 caregivers we plan to include as many automation features for the ventilator, from automatic first aid response over automated weaning trials to diagnosis and treatment recommendation. This requires a wide array of Artificial intelligence methods such as basic decision trees but also supervised and unsupervised machine learning techniques where the machine analyses all the available data and clusters patients into specific groups and identifies those who received consistently effective treatment. Another goal of this is to create a disease model that can be used to simulate ventilation patterns and can be used to allow for interactive training of fresh respiratory therapists specifically for COVID-19. Such a model would continue to have value beyond the pandemic and could bring valuable insight into the physiology of the lung. We are looking for a true expert who is aware of the current consensus on the fundamental physics and biological processes behind the disease but is also capable to expand his horizon to what this kind of analysis of data might bring. That person would be working closely with an AI expert to identify suitable approaches to the opportunities described above.

    Encore.org: Encore Fellowship Opportunity with Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services You are a seasoned professional with a minimum of 25+ years of experience, who is retired or in transition. You want to continue to work and want to do something with meaning. You are ready for a second act for the greater good. Encore Fellowships are structured programs that place highly-skilled, experienced professionals into social-purpose organizations, where they help nonprofits build capacity, and ultimately, have a greater impact on their communities. Fellows commit to 1,000 hours of work over 6 to 12 months. They are paid a stipend of $20,000 and are integrated into the nonprofit’s leadership team. About Didi Hirsch Mental Services Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services (DHMHS) has provided free mental health, substance use disorder and suicide prevention services since 1942. Dedicated to serving communities where stigma or poverty limits access, Didi Hirsch helps more than 150,000 children and adults from 10 locations and 100 schools throughout Los Angeles and Orange counties each year. Their outpatient services include counseling, medication management and case management. Intensive services are delivered to those experiencing severe mental illness in the community, home or clinic settings while residential treatment programs are also available. DHMHS’s Suicide Prevention Center (SPC) operates the oldest 24/7 suicide prevention crisis line in the nation serving those at-risk of suicide or those who have lost a loved one to suicide. The Suicide Response Team offers immediate support at the scene of suicides and for those who have lost a loved one to suicide, SPC provides bereavement support groups and counseling. They also offer support groups to individuals who have attempted suicide. Finally, staff and volunteers provide prevention training to mental health professionals and others through schools, law enforcement agencies, hospitals, counseling centers, and places of worship. Encore Fellow Information Technology: Primary Role and Responsibilities When the Coronavirus lockdown was put in place, IT’s focus rapidly pivoted to moving over 500 employees and 200 crisis line volunteers to remote working. For many employees this meant acquiring and configuring new laptop computers and providing other equipment and helpdesk support. There were considerably more challenges moving the suicide crisis line to remote working and it is apparent that the current call center software is not adequate for their needs. As the senior IT director moves from a highly reactive mode to proactive, he needs support in the following areas: Disaster Planning Assessment of medium and long-term infrastructure needs Development of an infrastructure strategy and deployment plan Identification of business systems and technology tool needs Identify trends in healthcare technology and how new tools can be utilized to improve services delivery and experience of clients and staff Development of the IT team to meet future needs of the agency Mentoring IT team members within a growing $50 million organization

    Parent Leaders are ambassadors in the community, by offering other parents information about proven "parenting techniques" related to protective factors (and community-based programs to refer their teens to); addressing issues of stigma and help-seeking; and countering the shame and negative experiences that other parents of adolescents are facing. These recruited and trained Parent Leaders will conduct peer education sessions with parents in their communities, whether they take place at parent workshops, community events, small-group discussions or one-on-one dialogues. After the training, the Parent Leaders will then immerse themselves in the fabric of their neighborhoods, prepared to teach other parents how to give "immediate emotional support" to the youth in their lives. Parent Leaders will be the spark for a community-wide skills transfer process. Peer-to-peer community outreach using Parent Leaders is an effective and empowering way to engage Chicago-area residents in ongoing conversation around violence prevention, mental wellness and positive coping strategies to stress and trauma. In this component of the Parent Leadership Training Initiative (PLTI), the Parent Leadership in Action Network (PLAN) will: Identify low-income parents and other caregivers of color in various communities who have been "through the fire" in dealing with their own issues (life struggles) and have navigated the tricky waters and challenges of raising adolescents; Recruit these parents for volunteerism (8 hours per week) doing community education and outreach to their peers (other parents of adolescents); Arm these parents with content (mental wellness) communications, training on prevention (violence) strategies and leadership training; Provide ongoing personal development opportunities, including group activities; and Prepare these new parent leaders to become "go-to" resources in the neighborhood.

  • COVID-19 support: Help Crowdfundraising campaign to feed and educate children

    This is a virtual opportunity
    Tue, October 20, 2020 - Mon, November 30, 2020

    Hello Friends, COVID-19 has made an unprecedented harshness in human history that requires humanity save itself as a single family. Situation is such now that we need to share our bread with the other. CHALLENGE: The present crisis threatens everyone's life, but it has devastated the lives of the poor who are already vulnerable living in extreme poverty. India is still registering a high per day COVID-19 infections. Survival itself is threatening the poor children now. We work among the most neglected and ignored indigenous and dalit communities in Kurnool district - the most chronic drought hit district s in Andhra Pradesh. Due to severe and continuous droughts, children are the victims of child labourers, child marriages and human trafficking. In our working with the communities for the last 2 years, we could rescue 167 child labourers and started giving literacy crash courses after which they will be mainstreamed with regular schooling. COVID-19 lock down has pushed the poorest families into extreme poverty due to lack of daily wage labours, on which they have been depending on. Now, survival itself has become a threat to the children and their families. This project comes with two definite impacts: 1. The poor children get healthy food and escape malnutrition. A healthy kid ensures healthy community 2. By continuing the crash courses/ literacy centers, we put an end to child labourers. This project ensures educated generation. The project breaks chronic poverty. A healthy community is the result. We will recognize every volunteer with a special recognition certificate.

    Life Target's mission is to give people going through a crisis the opportunity to have support tools in order to stay on the path towards a positive outcome, so that they do not commit violence or homicide against another person and allow themselves to live the best version of their life. In order to de-escalate violence, Life Target is to open direct communication with the possible offenders. By doing so, their ability to reach out for help will come with ease. Despite the extensive information available on the internet about violence prevention services, online research becomes too complex, especially when people are feeling most vulnerable, and at the same time in demand for help. In order to facilitate a search for essential resources, Life Target has created a single Emergency Contacts Directory, bringing together diverse emotional/mental emergency crisis resources regarding violence prevention, such as HOTLINE/TEXT/CHAT/ONLINE COUNSELING/COMMUNITY CENTER. Your role will be to search for local radio stations and/or podcasts where Life Target will be able to speak about its search engine, and how it contributes to the well-being of all communities and individuals. All of the data you will find will be transferred on Excels, showing the State, name of the radio or podcast, location address, email. Please feel free to ask questions and if you are interested, send us an email. We will then give you the states on which to work on, and the link from which you will be taking the data. Due to the nature of the topic that Life Target is passionate about, if you are a minor, please state that when you express interest in this volunteer position.
