Johns Hopkins HEAT Corps

Teach COVID-19 Curriculum to Youth through JH HEAT Corps




Johns Hopkins HEAT (Health Education And Training) 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, with a current focus on Baltimore City Public Schools.

JH HEAT 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. The HEAT Corps will discuss how youth can make a difference by modeling social distancing, handwashing, and mask wearing. Through a series of 30-minute sessions – using both live “virtual” teaching or recorded presentations – the HEAT Corps aims to heighten K-12 student awareness about the science of COVID-19 and the public health response.

Additional benefits of the program include:

Volunteers will receive training and guidance from a team of Johns Hopkins faculty and staff.  We invite volunteers to become a part of an exciting national initiative!
