The COVID Tracking Project

A Little Joy Initiative
TUTORING TO THE RESCUE: The devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic cannot be overstated. One of the losses we currently face is the suspension of classes for our children. And, academically, young students from low-income families in grades K-8 are hurting the most.
SCOPE is very unique in that it provides student leadership opportunities, overseen by the physician director and founders of SCOPE, and the possibility for creativity and initiative in improving the program. For example, the interpreter program, which is one of the biggest benefits SCOPE gives the hospital (largely because there are no in-house interpreters on weekend and overnight shifts) would not have been possible without student initiative.
As a volunteer, you’ll be a key communication link between patients, families, and hospital staff. Volunteers will be part of a team dedicated to providing high quality health care and experience the medical profession environment. There are two locations: Santa Clara and San Jose.
