Volunteer remotely and make a difference in the lives of older adults. Make calls, send cards, connect over Zoom and more – including special volunteer opportunities for older adults ages 65+!


Summer Intergenerational Volunteer Opportunities for Older Adults Ages 65+

If you're a volunteer age 65+ and enjoy spending time with young people, volunteer to share wisdom and laughs with DOROT teens this summer. Join us from your home for weekly intergenerational workshops in storytelling, discussion groups, legacy projects, StoryCorps Connect, or art, for a four-week session, beginning on June 22 or July 20. Familiarity with Zoom and access to a computer, phone or tablet with a working camera is required.

DOROT will be offering new interactive programs for younger and older adult volunteers in August and September. 

Please check this page at the end of July for additional information.


Caring Cards

Now that we are all keeping our distance from one another to protect against COVID-19, a Caring Card is a wonderful way to reach out to a DOROT older adult. Here are some guidelines with suggested messages and other tips to ensure that your card will bring smiles during this challenging time.

Send completed cards to the following address along with your Cardmaking Project Volunteer Information Form to:
171 West 85th Street
