The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated changes to the Adopt-a-Class volunteer program, but teachers and their students can still benefit from assistance. To this end, our "Volunteer at Home" program was established to allow volunteer participation without health risks. Teachers submit projects which our volunteers can complete at home. Adopt-a-Class administrators collect the project materials and instructions from the school receptionist and deliver them to volunteers. After completion, volunteers return their work to the school. All visits to the schools require masks, temperature checks and social distancing. Interested participants may register at firstname.lastname@example.org with their name, phone number, email address, street address and availability.
This program has been such a success that it will be continued long-term!
