We do so by analyzing scientific research and clinical evidence, gathering new evidence through data science and citizen science, and recommending to individuals optimal combinations of teas, tinctures, and powders that can be used to achieve each individual's mental health goals. We conduct this research with the goal of allowing people to make informed decisions about their health and to increase access to healthy stress-coping alternatives. These healthy coping mechanisms can reduce reliance on harmful self-medication practices such as alcohol abuse or behavior likely to lead to opioid addiction. Value Proposition: Tinctures, teas and powders from herbal medicine combinations can represent better risk/reward ratios Through citizen science and data science over time we have the aspirational goal to meet and exceed evidence parity with regards to evidence of effectiveness for herbal medicines for stress & anxiety compared with pharmaceuticals. That mission is attractive for people to participate in as its an opportunity for global collaboration to create increasingly usable natural medicine for stress and anxiety. Each person can go upstream of their mental health challenges and adopt healthier coping mechanisms.\ The only way CrowdDoing.world can realize its impact potential is through virtual volunteers, service learners (http://blog.reframeit.com/service-learning-and-skilled-volunteering/), and micro-leaders ( https://real-leaders.com/leveraging-micro-leadership-to-make-aspirational-goals-achievable/ ) coming together. See this brief video about Micro-leadership at CrowdDoing ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mhdB2YJ8Ocs&app=desktop ). Micro-leadership means that each person adopts a dimension of responsibility for a collective problem in our society through collaborating on that area creatively individually and together through social innovation.

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

    The Volunteer Guardianship program recruits, trains, and supports volunteers to serve as court-appointed guardians and conservators for Arlington neighbors who have no one else to help. We serve adults over the age of 18 who are Department of Human Services clients and who have been determined by a licensed professional to lack the capacity to handle personal and/or financial matters. Volunteers in this program serve as the substitute decision maker for the person they are appointed to serve, advocating for the person under guardianship to have to best quality of life possible. Guardianship deals with care including where the person under guardianship lives and healthcare decisions. Conservatorship covers financial decisions and property management. These decisions require a certain level of comfortability with making hard decisions on another person's behalf and should take into account the needs, preferences, and desires of the person under guardianship. This is a chance to build a truly rewarding relationship with someone that needs the legal and personal assistance of an ethical and committed Volunteer Guardian. A criminal history background check and credit history check (for conservators) are required. For more information on this challenging yet highly rewarding opportunity, contact Shasta Douglas, sdouglas@arlingtonva.us, 703-228-1716.

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

    Are you looking for something fun to do... do you like to drive... do you want to make a difference and help people? Volunteer driving is an opportunity to help seniors in your community. You can control the amount of time you want to be involved. Most volunteers drive once a week, some twice a week, others every other week. We are very flexible and will work with your schedule. Using your own vehicle, you would help older adults maintain their independence by taking them to much needed medical appointments. Clients greatly appreciate their improved access to medical care, meaningful interactions with caring volunteers, and increased peace of mind. Unfortunately, the program does not have enough drivers to meet the growing demand for transportation from King County seniors. Our volunteer drivers do a lot more than drive! By volunteering with Sound Generations Volunteer Transportation Program, drivers not only provide needed transportation but companionship for both the senior and the volunteer. We really need YOU! Help make a huge difference in the lives of seniors near you by becoming a volunteer driver.

  • Make A Connection - Change A Life!

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

    Not only has the COVID-19 coronavirus placed older adults and adults living with disabilities at very high risk of serious illness or death, but it has also made them more susceptible to social isolation and loneliness. Many older adults already live with a deep sense of disconnection from their community but the pandemic and related social distancing measures have made their sense of social isolation much worse. The Social Engagement Program at Mystic Valley Elder Services is designed to help improve the health and well-being of isolated older adults in the community by providing meaningful social connection-whether it be through telephone calls, email, or eventually, regular visits. Get started from the comfort and safety of your home! More detailed information about the program is below. Our agency serves a diverse population, and this program will be no exception. It is our mission to recruit a diverse cohort of volunteers, and we encourage bilingual volunteers to ensure that all of our consumers feel heard! In addition to speaking their native language, cultural connections can also help build an even stronger connection. More about the Social Engagement Program at MVES! There are three different options for program participants. Volunteers may choose one that is best for them, or could be involved in two, or all three! Volunteers in all parts of this program will receive training and ongoing support. Considering that the goal of this program is to offer meaningful connections, we do ask that volunteers commit to a minimum of 1 year of service. Our expectation is that everyone would begin by being matched with just one person, however, if you are interested, we could potentially match with you up to 5 individuals looking for someone to connect with! The Social Engagement Program includes the following services: Telephone Reassurance Volunteers call an isolated individual, offering a social contact and friendly conversation. This program asks for a commitment of approximately 2-4 hours per week. Email Pen Pal Program Volunteers provide a regular social and supportive email communication. This program requires a commitment of approximately 1-2 hours per week. Friendly Visitor Program Volunteers provide home visits that focus on in-person socialization and companionship. This aspect of the program will only be done when it is safe to do so, and will ask for a commitment of approximately 1-2 hours per week. We are currently working on a design for this program to function safely for those that really need it.

    Thu, October 22, 2020 - Thu, November 12, 2020

    You can help brighten our hospice families' table this Thanksgiving by making small centerpieces or decorations that will be delivered along with meals and lots of other goodies. The story... 20 years ago one of our teen volunteers came up with the idea to bring fully prepared meals, table items, and a decoration in a nice basket to allow the families more time together on what may be their last holiday, and most likely their last Thanksgiving together, rather than worrying about cooking. Each gift is complete with meals, pie, cider, napkins, hand-made table runners, candy, cranberry sauce, gravy, etc., and a decoration. We invite you to participate in this beautiful event by creating the centerpieces or decorations. They can be small and simple and you can make/donate as many or as few as you like. You could make: Mason jars decorated and filled with potpourri Small clay pots/tins filled with silk flowers Cork Pumpkins (stacked, glued & painted to be a pumpkin shape) Pine cone Turkeys Hand Turkeys Paper plate Wreaths These are simple crafts and anything you choose to do is greatly appreciated! Following are links to Pinterest with some great ideas: https://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=fall crafts&rs=typed&term_meta[]=fall|typed&term_meta[]=crafts|typed Hand Turkeys: CLICK HERE https://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=hand turkeys&rs=typed&term_meta[]=hand|typed&term_meta[]=turkeys|typed) **Donations are due to our office, 3906 Church Rd, Mount Laurel, NJ 08054 by 4:30p on November 16th.** Thank you for bringing some joy to Samaritan's patients and families!!

    Covid- 19 has caused isolation for all of us. Those especially at risk are our hospice patients and their families. We are in need of volunteers to become hospice volunteers who are willing to make phone call "visits" to patients and their families. A simple check in of a friendly voice makes all the difference in the world. Perhaps read a short story over the phone or read some jokes. These calls will connect the volunteer to patients/families in need of a friend. Be a compassionate phone visitor to a person with a life-limiting illness. Capital Caring Health needs dedicated volunteers to provide companionship and socialization to hospice patients by phone during Covid 19 and hopefully volunteers will want to continue in person visits once safety measures have been established. Must be a good listener. May involve chatting, hearing life stories, reading to a patient. Volunteers needed any day of the week. Volunteer will be asked to provide about 1- 2 hours a week. Orientation and ongoing support provided. Come join a team of supportive professionals who value our volunteers tremendously. You will find a home here with the Alexandria Capital Caring Health Team. Please contact Katherine Knoble at kknoble@capitalcaring.org or 703-333-6958 or 703-309-0289. Thank you.

    Volunteer Online - From Home! United Way's Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program (VITA) provides FREE tax preparation to individuals and families earning up to $56,000 annually. VITA taxpayers receive the maximum refund possible without paying hundreds of dollars in preparation costs. The VITA program helps taxpayers access all of the tax credits for which they are eligible - including the Earned Income Tax Credit which has been recognized as the single most powerful tool to lift children out of poverty. For many of our taxpayers, their tax refund is the biggest check they'll receive all year. Claiming these credits puts taxpayers on the path to paying off debt, securing better housing, obtaining dependable transportation, or pursuing higher education. Their spending generates millions of dollars in economic impact for the community. Last year, our VITA volunteers served more than 3,000 households and brought more than $4.2 million dollars back to our community. You can be a part of the team that makes this possible! Don’t know that much about taxes? No experience is necessary to become an effective, impactful VITA volunteer. We provide all necessary training in the month of January. The software that we use makes the tax preparation experience a matter of a little know-how and careful data entry. How much training will I need? First-year tax preparers go through approximately 24 hours of training in the month of January before tax preparation begins in February. Once you are placed on a team, you will have volunteer mentors around you to ask questions, as well as other tax preparation volunteers. Every return you prepare will be reviewed by a fellow volunteer to provide a quality check before filing. Join Today: Register to attend an upcoming orientation www.unitedwaytucson.org/joinvita

We have on-going physical needs in our building for positive community engagement and improved wellness. We also have senior sites in Columbia Heights, Chaska, St Paul, and suburban Hennepin. Most of our residents have transportation barriers and due to other physical limitations are unable to attend community fitness events. The current pandemic has made it difficult for our residents to stay mobile. Physical fitness will provide a much-needed boost for mental and physical wellness. It will also decrease social isolation. This class will take place in our own housing space. We are flexible with time and commitment.
