MENTOR SPECIALIST
For some reason, I have always felt that education was very important and as a child I had an aunt that worked one year after graduating  high school and entered college after that.  She was a teacher and I followed in her footsteps and also went to college and pursued a degree.  But I watched and learned from her the importance of education such as a  fulfilling job as a teacher  and helping students.  
 
After graduating high school, all three of my children knew that they would be entering college.  Going to college was pushed in the household and was a way for them to pursue a fulfilling career.  All three graduated college and I think they are working basically in their field and enjoy what they do.    I want the kids in Re-Direct to be encouraged and be pushed  to move from elementary, junior high and high school to always move further in life. .  Children may live in poverty and must be taught that living in poverty is not their life but they must be taught the way of God and that God wants the best for them..       

Non-Profit Staff Statistics

Here are some non-profit staff statistics from causeiq.com

Nonprofits in the United States employ more than 22,336,381 people — easily the biggest nonprofit employment statistic. These positions are a combination of full-time and part-time employees — the number of employees reported on organizations’ Form W-3 (Transmittal of Wage and Tax Statements) — and does not include contractors and indirect employment. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 155.8 million full and part time workers in 2018, so the nonprofit sector directly employs ~14% of the U.S. workforce.

There are 100,113 small nonprofits that employ 10 or fewer people. Combined, these nonprofits employ 430,564 people, which is just 1.9% of the 22.3 million people employed by all nonprofits. While these small nonprofits represent 5.6% of all nonprofits, they are a plurality — 36.4% — of nonprofits that actually employ people. As noted above, the size of the nonprofit is separate from the impact on individuals and society, and many small organizations have a large impact (and vice versa).

Nonprofit personnel typically earn between $16,227 and $96,126 per year in wages, benefits, and other compensation. The nonprofits that on average pay the most are science and technology research centers ($96,126), medical research organizations ($79,547), and international and foreign affairs organizations ($87,408). These are specialized organizations that tend to employ highly educated personnel. On the opposite end we see organizations with more part-time workers and a less skilled work force. These include recreation, sports, and social clubs ($16,227), youth development organizations ($17,877), and human services organizations ($21,862). Please note that these nonprofit employment statistics includes both part-time and full-time workers, and different types of nonprofits employ more part-time workers than others. Nonetheless, the trends are still interesting.
