Hoos Helping Learners Volunteer Sign Up
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, Madison House launched our spring/summer 2020 initiative Hoos Helping Learners, and matched teams of UVA students up with partners and parents to support distance learning in whatever way schools, teachers, and parents needed.

In order to be matched with an assignment, all student volunteers will need to complete this form and complete a training. Staff or community volunteers can also complete this form, and will receive additional information about training and vetting from UVA as necessary.

More information about this initiative can be found on our website https://www.madisonhouse.org/hooshelping

This is a crisis situation and many administrators, educators, and caregivers/guardians are dealing with fluid, changing circumstances. Hoos Helping volunteer teams may be asked to help with a variety of different tasks, including sharing audio or video of reading books, tutoring, troubleshooting educational technology and apps for parents, answering homework questions, compiling and sharing activities, creating and sharing demonstrations for teachers, etc. We need our volunteers to be understanding and flexible. Remote volunteering may be synchronous (actually talking with teachers, parents and/or kids in real time) or asynchronous (answering questions over text or email, recording things to share, helping a teacher as she or he prepares curriculum/activities). It may change, depending on needs and capacity.
