Age 65+ Volunteers; Join DOROT's Intergenerational Programs with Teens

Are you interested in a new kind of volunteer experience? Join DOROT's intergenerational summer programs where adults 65+ and teens come together to learn new perspectives and find common ground. Meet thoughtful teens and other energetic older adults. Enjoy fun and laughter while forming new and unexpected bonds.

Here's what past age 65+ volunteers have shared:

“I found a place where it doesn’t matter how old I am. We can talk about anything. I’ve found friends of all ages!” Jack B.

“The teens in this program are clever, caring and wise and help the seniors think differently about our lives.” Harriet R. 

Two 4-week sessions run from the end of June – mid August. Workshops are offered during the day on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at DOROT headquarters on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Each workshop welcomes about ten teens and ten 65+ volunteers.

DOROT is a social services organization based in New York City and Westchester dedicated to addressing social isolation and promoting social connections for older adults.
