Volunteer Virtually to Help Isolated Seniors

The Neighbor Network, an organization working to combat loneliness among the elderly and connect them to needed resources, is in need of more volunteers. To participate, volunteers complete a short virtual training and then call potential participants using a guided script through a phone bank. Individuals that the volunteer reaches can then opt in to be matched with the volunteer for a weekly (or less often) check in. Volunteers can also choose to participate in only one part of the program if they prefer: either just phone bank to reach new isolated seniors, or just make regular calls to chat with the same older adult. The program is flexible, and volunteers work on their own schedule as much or as little as they want. You can sign up for a training and learn more on our website: https://theneighbornetwork.org/. Feel free to reach out with any potential questions to felicia@theneighbornetwork.org.
