Virtual Volunteering Opportunities

Although COVID-19 presents some physical and social challenges when wanting to volunteer, fortunately technology provides another modality for people to connect, investigate, give time, and serve their communities, locally, nationally, and globally. See below for some ways you can volunteer from the comfort of your own home.

Non-Medically related options:

  • UVA Volunteer Tutoring Network: K-12 Program: The COVID-19 pandemic has required elementary, middle, and high schools to transition to online learning for the remainder of the semester. This major shift in education has required many parents/legal guardians to take increasing roles in their child's education, potentially leaving gaps for families with essential jobs who have increased working hours. Students at the School of Medicine in partnership with Madison House have created the UVA Volunteer Tutoring Network, a free virtual tutoring service for children of healthcare workers at UVA Hospital and other clinics/nursing homes in Charlottesville and Albemarle County. Graduate students and faculty volunteers within the University of Virginia community are matched with K-12 students based on their indicated subject needs and meet through online videoconferencing with periodic follow up by program coordinators and teachers. Please circulate this sign up form: https://forms.gle/NK6x6JErfY4xVrqY8 to active medical employees at UVA Hospital for free volunteer tutoring in K-12 subjects.
