Talk about Black History with Black Seniors

Do you know Black History? Are you interested in moderating discussions on the topic with homebound elderly seniors connected by phone? The group is in Brooklyn, so topics related to Black History in NYC are of particular interest.


The Sharing Network uses the phone to create socialization opportunities for homebound seniors living in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, to maintain their emotional and mental health. Participants are isolated because of pandemic concerns, mobility limitations or other circumstances. We work with people who lack technological savvy, so we've made sure people with just a landline can benefit from our program.


Join us in building community among participants by presenting hour-long conversation and activity groups led by volunteer moderators. Volunteers should be good talkers and have skills and interests they want to share with participants, who are predominantly Black women in their 60s-80s. Volunteers over 50 are encouraged to apply, and we also encourage younger volunteers who interact comfortably with older folks to contact us.
