**UPDATE (4/1/21):** We recieved a grant that was able to cover the $2500 we originally allocated for additional web development costs. Now we are only hoping to raise money for our annual costs! Thank you so much to all those who have already donated!!**
As school shutdowns across the U.S. continue due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, many students are faced with financial and logistical challenges that greatly impact their learning experience. This has exacerbated long-standing educational inequities among American K-12 students, especially among high-poverty districts, rural areas, and families with limited access to resources for remote learning.
CovEducation (or “CovEd”) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that works to connect mentors from higher education institutions with K-12 students affected by school closures. Our mentors not only serve as academic tutors but also as role models who foster non-academic interests and career exploration. We also compile free, web-based educational resources for students, families, and educators, as well as partner with schools and other non-profits to improve the learning experience of K-12 students.
With an expanding community of 4,600+ undergraduates, postgraduates and educators from 448 higher education institutions and nearly 3,800 mentees across 50 states, we believe in the democratization of academic resources and support so that every student has a chance to reach their fullest potential. This program is available to all K-12 students in the U.S., focusing on those with limited access to resources for continued learning.
Our goal is to raise $2000 and every little bit helps tremendously! Your support will help us expand the accessibility of our web application, which will improve the mentorship experience for thousands of students and provide academic resources for hundreds of thousand users worldwide.
Thank you so much for your support, and happy holidays from our family to yours.
