How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Volunteering: You can make masks to donate at a local hospital, call or write letters to people at assisted living homes, and deliver groceries to people at high risk for COVID-19. You can also try virtual volunteering in places such as volunteermatch.com, scistarter.org, and more. I personally like the Smithsonian transcriber volunpeer program where you can transcribe historical documents into a more accessible database to be more available to the general public and the Stall Catcher program where you can assist in the research for a cure for Alzheimers by identifying blockages in vessels.
Programs: There are plenty of online camps that depend on your area of interest--if you are interested in public speaking, there are speech and debate camps such as the Harvard Congressional debate camp, there are STEM camps, etc.
