Internet Security 

According to Google, 75% of Americans are still frustrated with password management. As a result, many people sacrifice convenience over security. In fact, 2 out of 3 Americans use the same password for multiple sites while about 60% of people use easy-to-guess passwords such as date of birth.

It’s these human behaviors that hackers tend to exploit allowing them to steal personal and financial information!!

For this reason, our team has created tools and resources to educate online users about password managers about the convenience and security many people are experiencing with a good password manager.

Employment
Full and part time paid service jobs

We are a team of local volunteers who, earlier this year, launched a free jobs listing resource for charitable organizations in the greater Milwaukee region to post their job openings (because many job listing websites are too expensive for charities to use, and a similar website that many charities in the region used, Jobs That Serve, shut down at the end of the year). 

 

We have had a tremendous response from local charities (including many faith-based non-profit organizations), and currently have over 250 open jobs posted by charities in the region. They provide critical services to our community, and we want to make sure that all of their open jobs are getting the attention and candidates they need. Please visit us at:
