Virtual Volunteering: Tutor K-12 Students Whose Parents are Medical/Hospital Staff in NYC During the COVID-19 Pandemic with Columbia Volunteer Tutor Corps

The General Intelligence(s) team came across a post on Instagram from Columbia Volunteer Tutor Corps. We believe that their mission and goals align well with our organization and thus we wanted to communicate their initiative. Columbia Volunteer Tutor Corps is currently recruiting volunteers that can teach different K-12 subjects and courses to students in the NYC area that are the children of medical staff and hospital workers. Medical/Hospital workers at Columbia University’s Irving Medical Center and other NYC hospitals are dealing with the highest number of COVID-19 patients in the country. Furthermore, as with many schools, NYC public schools have shifted to remote learning. Yet, the children of these essential workers need help with their education during this period of time as their parents are working long hours to combat the pandemic.
