    Hello, how can people who want to volunteer online help during the Covid19 crisis?

    In particular, with so many students now at home, are there ways to volunteer as an online teacher or tutor where parents or students who need the help can easily find you?  Is there a hub online where volunteer teachers and tutors can be matched with students needing help?  If you can provide specific suggestions it would be great. If not, can you point me in the right direction?

    Thank you.

    I'm not sure if this helps, but I saw an article about college students who are available to tutor K-12 students during school closings. Article link

    I'm not sure if there is an organized way to volunteer.  I see a lot of teachers offering services in their area via Facebook.  Some public libraries offer online tutoring through companies.  For example, mine uses Brainfuse. You might want to check with yours and see if they do and which company they use.

    The best way is to share on your personal social media outlets, such as Facebook. I know a few college students and teachers that have posted in our local schools Facebook page offering virtual tutoring sessions. And share with your PLN. They might know someone that needs your expertise. A friend of mine just hooked my son up with a tutor for his college class. The tutor lives on the west coast, we live in FL. Network - that's what it's all about!

    I have seen many people take to Facebook.  We have had community members, parents, and substitute teachers reach out via Facebook.  Maybe creating a Facebook group to see who would be interested would be a place to start.  I would somehow vet anyone who wanted to help through your school first just to be safe.  I am sure that there would be a group of people who would love to help!

    I saw a post from Volunteer Match that featured lists of opportunities to aid communities impacted by COVID-19. The resource hub lists a growing network of COVID-19 virtual volunteering opportunities for practical actions you can take today to support your community.
