DOROT's Conversation Club: Chat with older adults in this friendly conversation "salon"

Save to Favorites

DOROT, Inc

With so much of our lives existing virtually, we all miss our casual coffee shop conversations and run-ins with friends. Join us for our weekly Zoom Conversation Club, an informal opportunity to strike up conversations with DOROT friends, both old and new. These are small group discussions that foster a sense of inclusion for isolated older adults. Chat about anything and everything as you mingle with volunteers and older members of the DOROT community. In order to create meaningful connections among participants, we request that you attend all 5 sessions. Wednesdays, 9/2 -- 9/30, 5:30-6:30pm.
To register, please email: Volunteers@dorotusa.org.
