Raising young children and looking for easy and exciting ways to volunteer together? DOROT offers unique opportunities for families with children ages 5- 12 to visit the homes of DOROT elders for meaningful intergenerational connections. Onsite Intergenerational Chess and Bar & Bat Mitzvah volunteer opportunities are also ways to share a wonderful gift – the gift of your time and friendship!
Teens and older adults meet weekly over Zoom in small groups to talk and participate in activities ranging from creative writing, chess, art, current events and so much more, leading to the discovery of new and shared perspectives. Volunteer today and experience the rewards of intergenerational friendship!
Create birthday and holiday cheer for DOROT seniors with handmade greeting cards. DOROT sends beautiful birthday cards, designed and created by our volunteers, to each of the nearly 4,000 older adults we work with each year. Your group members can use their artistic skills to benefit older adults in our community.
Give special meaning to your Bar or Bat Mitzvah experience by volunteering with DOROT. Choose to participate in one of our established programs or design your own chesed (kindness/compassion) project to honor this incredibly exciting and important time – becoming a Bar/Bat Mitzvah!
