Do you enjoy older people? Are you bi-lingual in Spanish and English? The Sharing Network is looking for you. Lead a conversation group for older Spanish speakers who get together weekly by phone. Groups are organized around topics you like to talk about such as food, tv, living in the United States, health, art, music, religion, family. Contact us so we can find the right theme for your group.
Our innovative program uses the phone to create opportunities to socialize for homebound seniors living in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Participants are isolated because of health concerns, mobility limitations or other circumstances. We work with people who lack technological savvy, so we've made sure even 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, predominantly low-income people 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.
