MENTOR SPECIALIST

I am the third of seven  children. I attended I.T. Montgomery Elementary school, and graduated from John F. Kennedy High School. Upon completion of my graduation, I attended Coahoma Community College where I received my AA Degree in Journalism. I later attended Delta State University and received my B.S. Degree in Child Development. Also, I am the mother of one son. Having been an educator, I enjoy working with children. I truly have a passion to see children grow, develop and learn. Seeing the whole child develop, is a passion of mine. When I see that children have learned things that I taught them, it gives me great joy, and especially when I see them later in their lives. What I do understand is that it is important to develop a relationship with the students and their parents. Making a mark that cannot be erased.

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.
