Board Member Needed — My Bucket List Inc. (Phoenix)

Date Posted: April 27, 2016
Position Description:

Xbox Kinect Sports for Senior Citizens

Promoting Activity for Senior Citizens with the Use of Xbox Kinect

 

My Bucket list Foundation is an exciting new charity that utilizes technology for the purpose of inter-generational activity.  We are a volunteer based organization, empowering teens to participate in activities with elderly individuals.  By empowering teenagers to work with senior citizens, we expose them to the honest and pure wisdom of our seniors.

 

Currently we hold sessions at two-dozen Senior Centers in five different cities in the greater Phoenix metro-area.  With the rise in desire for our services, we are finding it difficult to keep up with our limited volunteer base.  It is my goal to build a stronger, larger and more impactful group of volunteers to accommodate the rising demand.  It is a shame when we cant fulfill requests from these senior-care facilities due to the lack of qualified volunteers.

 

What we do:

 

            Typically, we go into a senior care facility and utilize Xbox 360 Kinect®. Xbox 360 Kinect® allows the user to interact with the gaming system through simple movements and gestures.  We have noticed that senior citizens respond well to the activity—enjoying participating or, in some cases, enjoy watching their fellow residents participate.  The importance of aerobic or anaerobic activity becomes greater as individuals get older.  As well as physical benefits, we have noticed a correlation with individuals suffering from memory loss as they are able to retain these new techniques on a weekly basis.  We see a huge moral benefit for the teens facilitating the activities as well as they gain an appreciation for their elders—a value that has somewhat diminished in today’s generations.  The exercise program that we use has nearly 70 games, which stimulate the elderly participants into becoming active.  With the use of the Kinect®, the elderly can operate the game through simple motions and gestures, allowing them to experience a degree of virtual reality. 

 Looking for somebody who can become an active board member over this charity. 

Position Qualifications:

ambitious

creative

self motivated

team player

Country Associate, Central America — Clinton Health Access Initiative (Panama City)

Date Posted: April 28, 2016
Position Description:

Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton, the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to strengthening integrated health systems around the world and expanding access to care and treatment for HIV/AIDS, malaria and other illnesses. Based on the premise that business oriented strategy can facilitate solutions to global health challenges, CHAI acts as a catalyst to mobilize new resources and optimize the impact of these resources to save lives, via improved organization of commodity markets and more effective local management. By working in association with governments and other NGO partners, CHAI is focused on large scale impact and, to date, CHAI has secured lower pricing agreements for treatment options in more than 70 countries. In addition, CHAI's teams are working side-by-side with over 30 governments to tackle many of the largest barriers to effective treatment and care.

Malaria is one of the world's most important causes of illness, death, and lost economic productivity. Over the past decade, dramatic increases in donor funding have facilitated scale-up of effective interventions to prevent, diagnosis, and treat malaria. This investment has successfully reduced the burden of malaria in many settings, and some countries have begun planning to eliminate it altogether. Yet these gains are fragile: global funding for malaria remains short of what is needed, last decade's rapid growth in malaria financing appears to have halted, and resistance to insecticides and drugs threatens to set back efforts. The great majority of the growth in funding for malaria programs has come from potentially volatile international donors rather than from domestic contributions, making the sustainability of recent gains an open question.

CHAI provides direct management and technical support to countries around the globe to strengthen their malaria programs and reduce the burden of this preventable, treatable disease. We support governments to scale up effective interventions for prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and surveillance, with the goals of sustainably reducing the number of malaria-related illnesses and deaths worldwide in the short-term and accelerating progress towards malaria elimination in the long term.

Position Qualifications:

Job Requirements

The Country Associate will:

  • Work with the National Malaria Program in the target country and the CHAI global malaria team to conduct a rapid country assessment to identify the technical, operational and financial requirements for sustainably achieving elimination
    • Lead the assembly and compilation of epidemiological, operational, and financial data
    • Coordinate evaluation of program processes, capacity, guidelines and field activities to define implementation barriers and identify areas that require strengthening to achieve elimination
  • Build strong working relationships with key stakeholders across government and non-governmental organizations
  • Work with the CHAI Regional Manager to develop a country work plan for delivering a coordinated program of support to the National Malaria Program
  • Support the National Malaria Program on the reorientation of their program towards elimination, specific activities will include:
    • Revising national malaria strategic plan
    • Updating national guidelines and policies to align with global elimination recommendations
    • Developing detailed operational plans, SOPs and associated training materials to build government capacity and support effective execution of malaria program
  • Identify key impediments to the successful execution of malaria elimination plans and work with malaria programs and other partners to develop solutions to rapidly address those bottlenecks
  • Work with the MoH and partners to accelerate introduction and uptake of new tools and diagnostics
  • Serve as a trusted adviser to the government on malaria elimination
  • Provide program and budget updates for progress reports and best practice sharing
  • Compile inputs and draft necessary presentations/reports for internal stakeholders and donors
  • Travel 40%-50% of the time to the respective Country
  • Bachelor's degree plus 3 - 5 years of work experience
  • Strong problem solving skills and analytical capabilities
  • Excellent written and oral communications skills
  • Detail-oriented with strong organization skills
  • Ability to handle multiple tasks simultaneously, set priorities, and work independently
  • Ability to be effective in high-pressure situations and work in a fast-paced, multicultural environment

Founded last year with a seed-funding grant through the Arizona Commission on the Arts ArtTank Initiative, The Bridge has made remarkable progress towards the awareness for gender parity in the field of theatre and other related arts. Having been given national press coverage, invitations to national conferences, supported female playwrights, directors, and designers, given paid work to local artists, and brought the conversation of gender disparity to the forefront in the local theatre community, we are looking for the right person that believes in what we are doing. The Bridge Initiative: Women in Theatre are poised to further their mission with exciting projects in our pipeline working with nationally-recognized playwrights and local artists as well as guest directors and dramaturgs.

Position requires a commitment of a couple of hours a week when not in production, but with more extensive hours when busy with projects. We are in the process of applying for our 501c3, researching grant opportunities, and will launch another crowd-funding drive to support our programs. Non-profit bookkeeping and tax knowledge a plus, or the desire to learn about it towards a Managing Director's duties. The Bridge will soon be announcing their second new play contest that will culminate in a co-producing venture with theatres in Western Massachusetts, New York, and with additional regions anticipated.

The Bridge Initiative founders, Tracy Liz Miller and Brenda Jean Foley, believe in working towards gender parity in theatre and have not formed the company as a vehicle for their own performing needs or desires. In other words, we don't look to put ourselve on stage. Instead, we look at the bigger picture and how we can influence the theatre landscape towards a better future. We seek an individual that will do the same. But there are exciting artistic possibilities, with connections to learning opportunities and situations to assist, apprentice, and be mentored. Access to top-notch theatre artists and quality work will be perks of the position. 

Interviews will begin immediately until the position is filled.
