MENTOR SPECIALIST

Teaching is a part of my heart and soul. As some would say, it is my “God given talent”.There isn’t anything else I would rather do on a daily basis than invest in the lives of children. This passion led me to major in elementary education with additional endorsements in reading and math. Teaching in the Cleveland School District for 36 years enabled me not only to witness in students that “spark” for learning, but also to celebrate with them big and small accomplishments in their lives. After retiring in 2014, I continued to inspire children to do their very best through personal after school tutoring.  Because my passion for teaching continues to burn, I am thankful to God for blessing me with the opportunity to still inspire children by doing my best as a member of the Re >Direct team.

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.
