Summer Teen Internship Program

Rising sophomores, juniors and seniors can intern with a diverse group of socially conscious peers to bring vital social connections to older adults. Through one of our four summer teen internship programs, you can develop leadership skills and engage in meaningful programs with older adults. Through a variety of intergenerational activities – including discussion groups, home visits, creative arts and tech assistance – you can give back to the community this summer while earning over 112 community service hours. All DOROT intern programs are free.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and in an effort to ensure the health and safety of all of our participants, all DOROT Summer Teen Internship Program sites will operate as virtual programs this summer. Join us by video and telephone platforms from the safety of your own home to make a real difference in the lives of older New Yorkers!
