Visit & Connect

On-Site Volunteering

Engage with older adults and other volunteers at DOROT. We offer a variety of gratifying and energizing opportunities. Lead one of our programs. Serve as a greeter for our on-site events. Lend a hand in our offices or at our Homelessness Prevention Program. Select from convenient Sunday, weekday and evening options.

Youth & Family Volunteering

As part of DOROT’s community service offerings we believe in maintaining strong intergenerational bonds in the communities we serve. Fulfill a Bar or Bat Mitzvah project. Join an older adult to play chess. As a younger volunteer, you are important to DOROT’s mission – and the experience can change your life.

Are you looking for a special volunteer project for your school, community or corporate group?
