The COVID-19 vaccine roll out in the United States is in desperate need of volunteers. Seniors across the country are struggling to navigate the complex online systems needed to schedule an appointment to receive their COVID-19 vaccines. Young adults make ideal volunteers for this effort, with native internet skills and a desire to support their communities.
We want to help you address this need in your local community. Powered by Repair the World, EDCJCC, and GW Hillel, the Vaccine Appointment Network is a project template for a community-based program matching young, tech-savvy volunteers with seniors aged 65+ for support navigating the COVID-19 vaccine appointment process.
If you’re an organization who works with seniors in need of vaccine support or if your organization works with young adults energized to volunteer, join us on Thursday, February 25 at 12pm ET / 9am PT for an introductory webinar. By the end of the webinar, you’ll have access to a full project toolkit—including draft emails, volunteer management best practices, and sample documents—to make organizing a Vaccine Appointment Network in your local community a possibility.
