About Pandemic Professors:

The closure of schools that began in the spring has served to only widen the educational gap between economically disadvantaged students and others. With school closures taking place for the foreseeable future it is imperative that we give economically disadvantaged students the attention they need to not fall behind.

Pandemicprofessors.org, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, was founded in April by UC Berkeley alumni to achieve this mission. It is a 100% volunteer-based organization from top-to-bottom. We have partnered with a national job training nonprofit to provide educational help to the children of the low-income parents in their programs. We are also connecting with underserved schools and districts across the country to help disparaged and at-risk youth. We will be seeing a huge influx of students and we are asking interns with a wide range of skills and interests to assist us with multiple operations.

As an intern, you will be responsible for helping the organization run smoothly and deliver the best services possible to students in need. You will interact with staff and tutors. Your position will depend upon your personal goals and skills. You will be able to grow a diverse range of skills tailored to your professional interest. This is an internship you have ownership of. We are a 100% volunteer run organization, there are no paid roles available.

Mission Statement

The mission of Pandemic Professors is to facilitate free tutoring to children in low-income communities impacted by the pandemic.

Description

At Pandemic Professors, we believe all K-12 students deserve an opportunity to receive free supplemental learning through private tutoring, in order to help them remain on track and meet their educational goals. Our organization was founded to match underserved students across the United States with free online tutors to more safely help during this unprecedented crisis and beyond.

Historically, students in underserved communities are at greater risk of falling behind in academics and socio-emotional skills. Much like Hurricane Katrina, the COVID-19 crisis is exacerbating the plethora of academic and personal challenges these students already face. Our organization presents students in low-income communities with opportunities to strengthen subject comprehension and boost confidence. The needs, strengths, and voices of the impacted students drive our family-centered philosophy and evidence-based practices.

Together with our partners, Pandemic Professors combats adverse effects on learning resulting from the pandemic and exacerbated by poverty. Students in underserved communities don’t lack a hunger for knowledge, they lack the means to access quality tutoring. Pandemic Professors provides effective tools for students to complete their K-12 education, and we will continue to work with our students after the pandemic until the educational gap is resolved. We sincerely hope you consider joining us in the fight to improve the lives of students adversely affected by poverty and the pandemic.
