Jefferson COVID-19 Student Volunteerism Platform


Please use this forum to sign up for COVID-19 volunteer opportunities. As more projects become available, they will be displayed on the Student Volunteerism Platform. Please check back regularly for additional volunteer opportunities!

Currently, there are an overwhelming number of students willing to volunteer to help with the COVID-19 initiatives at Jefferson. Many previously established projects have an overwhelming number of volunteers at the moment. However, there are many other volunteer projects currently in development! If you are already volunteering for a project listed on this platform, you can continue volunteering with your current project. Please do not sign up for the same project again via this platform. If you would like to sign up for additional projects on the platform, please feel free to do so!

If you have any questions regarding the platform, please contact Student.Volunteers@jefferson.edu.
