Do you enjoy older people? Are you bi-lingual in Spanish and English? You may be who the Sharing Network is looking for. 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 pandemic 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 by growing the network of older adults in the Sharing Network. We have ongoing groups of interest to Spanish speakers in the community, and we want to make this opportunity better known to potential participants. This volunteer would also be able to do weekly reminder conversations with members who sign up.
