As the fall semester approaches with thousands of students attending their first semesters online, you might be thinking: how on earth am I going to get involved? After all, much of the college charm is finding “your people” and many people do this by finding friends with common interests in clubs and extracurriculars. However, with the lack of in-person instruction and activities, this will definitely be a challenge. But there’s still hope.
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.
