Volunteer Resources for Students

Are you looking to make a difference and help others during the coronavirus pandemic? In partnership with the Network of Jewish Human Service Agencies and the Jewish Federations of North America, we are excited to bring students opportunities to volunteer, both remotely and in-person (where safe). 

Below is a list of organizations and Jewish agencies that currently offer volunteer opportunities to Hillel students, organized by state, as well as from national partners.

Teach if Forward - The Teach it Forward Initiative is connecting K–12 students with college volunteers for virtual tutoring throughout the COVID-19 shutdown. Already, more than 150 students from Yale, Vanderbilt, and Carnegie Mellon have signed up to volunteer. An initiative started by Birthright Excel Fellows!

Catchfire - Catchfire strengthens the social good sector by matching professionals who want to donate their time with nonprofits who need their skills. Nonprofits provide critical support to their communities, but limited budgets can block them from hiring the expert talent they need to operate most effectively. Skills-based volunteering can bridge that gap.

Skilled Volunteers for Israel - Skilled Volunteers for Israel, English B’Yachad (English Together) program, is seeking tutors for one on one English language tutoring to Israeli young adults through an online platform.
