Volunteer with DOROT!
NEW: One-to-One Technology
Help an older adult learn to use technology for social connection and accessing resources
Many older adults feel “left behind” in our digital era now that staying in touch with friends and
loved ones, and accessing information requires tech skills. As a DOROT Volunteer Tech Coach,
you can help by teaching an older adult video chat, online shopping, and other valuable skills!
Coaches are trained and matched with DOROT clients in this new program designed to meet the
specific learning needs of older adults. Coaching sessions are held in clients’ homes, on the
Upper East and Upper West Sides of Manhattan.
Coaches work with a minimum of two clients, 3 to 4 sessions per client. Sessions are scheduled
at mutually convenient times from May to August. Coaches provide feedback to DOROT staff at
regular intervals to help grow and improve this new program.
Training Dates, Select One
May 8th from 10:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. or May 15th from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.
No need to be a tech expert! The ideal coach is patient, comfortable with computers, tablets
and/or smartphones, able to follow step-by-step guides on common tech applications, and
enthusiastic about helping older people develop new skills. DOROT will provide orientation,
training and an easy-to-follow curriculum along with ongoing support.
