Washington DC COVID sitters

The George Washington University School of Engineering and Applied Science


This is an opportunity for members of the GW Medical School community only. We are looking for a volunteer project manager to coordinate temporary daycare services for families of faculty and healthcare workers in the GW Medical School community who are devoting themselves to caring for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic and don’t have time to provide daycare for their own families. This project is patterned after the COVIDsitters project recently started at the University of Minnesota. (Note: You must know, and have an existing relationship with, someone in the Medical School to participate in this project.)
