What is a way for me to volunteer in a field relating to STEM online, as I am a busy chemistry student?

I am a chemistry major with a very heavy course load, but I would like an opportunity to give back in some way that is feasible for me to do. #chemistry #volunteering #stem #time-management #women-in-stem #scheduling #chem

Hi Maria,

It's awesome that you're looking for ways to engage in your community even though you're so busy with your classes! Lots of nonprofit organizations have volunteer tasks that can take place virtually (like supporting their social media strategy, writing stories for their newsletters, etc.), but they aren't necessarily posted as a "volunteer job" on their website. If you know of any interesting nonprofit organizations nearby, you can always reach out and ask if there's a way you can support for a few hours a week from home.

Hello again Maria,

I was going through some of my repsonses today and realized I misunderstood your question. It appears you are looking for online opportunities. If so, becoming a tutor is a great way to give back. Some recommendations include:

Chegg https://www.chegg.com/tutors/become-a-tutor/

Hi Maria,

Thanks for the question. One great resource I would recommend is a site called VolunteerMatch: https://www.volunteermatch.org

I did a search just using "STEM" as the search word for opportunities in the Trenton, NJ (I'm assuming it's New Jersey) area and here are some of the results:

Aquatic Sciences Education Program Volunteer at the Center for Aquatic Sciences at Adventure Aquarium in Camden: https://www.volunteermatch.org/search/opp2543504.jsp

Math & Science Tutor for the Philadelphia Education Fund: https://www.volunteermatch.org/search/opp2412322.jsp

There may be many other opportunities available that you can find using different search terms. It would also be a good idea to reach out to schools, public colleges, and other places where STEM opportunities may exist (even if they aren't overtly advertised)... you'd be surprised how many of them are looking for volunteers.
