COVID-19-related Work & Volunteer Opportunities



GW Health COVID-19 Response: Call for Volunteers

GW has made available a form to collect volunteer interest/capacity across the community and community expertise to support COVID-19 response activities. Organizers will be in touch as they identify opportunities to serve safely and effectively. They know that there will be many in the days ahead. They appreciate volunteers' patience and continued commitment to helping.



State of Virginia 

Governor Ralph Northam is looking for an additional 30,000 medical and non-medical volunteers to provide support for the
immediate surge in hospitals, long term care facilities and alternate care sites. To help save lives, sign up today as a volunteer with the Virginia Medical Reserve Corps (MRC).

The Virginia Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) is a force of dedicated volunteers who stand ready to support the community in the event of a public health emergency. Signing up to serve with the MRC is a great opportunity for health care majors and other students interested in helping their fellow Virginians. Medical experience is recommended but not required. There
are many opportunities for everyone.
