Johns Hopkins HEAT Corps

Teach COVID-19 Curriculum to Youth through JH HEAT Corps



Johns Hopkins Health Education And Training Corps (HEAT Corps) seeks Johns Hopkins volunteers to be trained and supported to provide health education and training regarding COVID-19 to youth. The program is currently being taught through virtual platforms with schools and non-profit organizations throughout the United States, in other countries, and with a particular focus on Baltimore City Public Schools.

JH HEAT Corps is a unique opportunity for Hopkins volunteers to develop their own health education and teaching skills, while simultaneously supporting youth in their understanding of COVID-19. Volunteers will receive training and guidance from a team of Johns Hopkins faculty and staff. Through the HEAT Corps curriculum, volunteers will be discussing current COVID-19 science and ways to help communities combat COVID-19.  Volunteers will be trained in public health knowledge of how the pandemic started, learn about the science of the vaccines, understand the mental health consequences of the pandemic, while teaching every K-12 student what role they can play in ending the pandemic.  Our trained HEAT Corps volunteers will play a pivotal role in disseminating public health information through learning top-tier medical information on the COVID-19 pandemic!
