Unified Efforts Treasurer Opportunity

Volunteer Today

A brief description of the organization’s mission:
Unified Efforts is a non-profit founded in 2014 by Executive Director Debbie Ramsey to reduce out-of-school learning loss and provide academic enrichment, leadership development, and college/career readiness in the Penn North neighborhood of West Baltimore. To date, we have served over 120 school age students. Even as the coronavirus pandemic rages through our communities, learning loss remains a critical issue in our neighborhood and we are hopeful that at some point soon we can safely resume our face-to-face (or mask-to-mask!) activities.

Our mission is simple: reduce summer learning loss. Provide specialty, multipurpose and academic programs for students year round to minimize academic loss when school aged children are out of school for extended times. Our programs and activities include financial literacy, free dental screenings, aviation-aerospace, cooking with whole foods, athletic activities, the arts, writing, swim lessons, by certified swimming instructors, and bullying prevention activities. We are now embarking on an exciting new phase: building and construction! Our architect is finalizing design and detailed plans needed for capital funding requests and construction bids. We anticipate being in position to begin construction early next year. More at unifiedefforts.org.

What this volunteer role entails:
The treasurer is one of four officers of the board of directors, along with President, VP, and Secretary. They must be a person of great trust and integrity. Many of our donors and grant-makers scrutinize carefully our budget and financial reports before giving. The treasurer must always be thinking about how our finances connect with our overall mission.

  • Oversee UE’s financial management and cash flow
  • Work closely with the Executive Director, Board President, and supervise our paid accountant.
  • Take the lead in forming policies around who can access funds, sign checks, and reimburse expenses.
  • Work with legal counsel to ensure we are following all federal, state and local laws in this regard.
  • Manage and ensure the integrity of scheduled audits.
  • Manage our budget and provide full information for board review and approval.
  • Ensure we have robust internal controls and financial management policies.
  • Help the board establish metrics for financial performance.

Email unifiedefforts@comcast.net if interested.

Building STEPS Tutoring Opportunity

Volunteer Today

Building STEPS (Science Technology And Education Partnerships Inc.) mission is to equip our city’s brightest students with the tools to propel them to college and career success. As a small organization that makes a profound difference in the lives of a Baltimore City youth, Building STEPS highly successful model relies on strong partnerships and expert volunteers. This crucial collaboration and commitment enables hundreds of students each year to benefit from programming and ultimately achieve college and career success.

Tutoring has been an integral part of our programming over the years. With students engaged in full-time remote learning, we anticipate a greater need for academic tutoring support. Time commitment will vary but will remain flexible and convenient for all involved.

Our students take a variety of classes- Algebra, Geometry, Algebra II and some pre-Calculus. But what we have found recently that many students are not solid on basic math concepts, despite the level of math they are taking in school. So tutoring is two-fold, supporting them in their current subject class, but also reinforcing basic math skills so they are more confident moving into SATs (if they even happen this year) and into college level math. All tutoring is available virtually.

For more information on Building STEPS: www.buildingsteps.org.

If you are interested in math based tutoring and homework support, please contact Jennifer Descoteau at jdescoteau@buildingsteps.org.
