With fall semester/quarter online, it is difficult to find volunteering opportunities that will help us prepare our resumes for grad school or medical school. Here are some ways you can volunteer virtually or to help others in need during this pandemic: 

 

1. Operation Warm has a list of 25 ways to volunteer virtually
