Volunteer at DOROT to form new connections and address social isolation for older New Yorkers. As a DOROT volunteer, you have many choices, both remote and in person. Serve as a friendly visitor to a homebased older adult in Manhattan on a weekly or monthly basis; help with occasional errands or tasks; or sign up for Caring Calls to develop a phone-based friendship. Tech savvy volunteers are invited to help in our tech tutoring program. We also have many opportunities for skill-based roles for former college-level instructors, social workers, facilitators and museum educators.

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. We welcome volunteers ages 18+ and especially those 50+ to volunteer in a wide-ranging set of roles.

The best way to learn more is to sign up for a general information and orientation session. These take place over Zoom twice per month. Register here: https://dorotusa.jotform.com/202306101392137
