Assist staff in the Virtual Senior Center, a program that works w/Older Adults in bringing them live interactive classes via an online platform. Your role: expand the potential class instructors(Facilitators) by researching USA Universities, Professional organizations and more to find the appropriate contacts. This is a virtual position(but you need to live in the USA) so hours are very flexible. We're looking for 6-8 hours/week, someone who is comfortable working independently with some guidance in finding the right contacts within organizations and enjoys research! If you are familiar with computer program that can automate this process that would be a bit plus. This position ends towards end of August (unless you'd like to continue).

Mission Statement

Selfhelp is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to maintaining the independence and dignity of seniors and at-risk populations through a spectrum of housing, home health care, and social services and will lead in applying new methods and technologies to address changing needs of its community. Selfhelp will continue to serve as the "last surviving relative" to its historic constituency, victims of Nazi persecution.

Description

Selfhelp is A private, non-sectarian, not-for-profit 501 (c) (3) organization, Selfhelp was founded in 1936 by a small group of refugees fleeing persecution during the Holocaust. Our history is rich and varied because throughout it, we have continued to respond to anyone in need. Our mission has always been to help older adults live happy, independent lives in their own homes with services that help maintain their health and safety. Today, Selfhelp offers 20,000 aging, frail and "at-risk" New Yorkers a comprehensive network of social service, senior housing and home care services. It is also the oldest and largest provider of Nazi victim services in North America. For almost seven decades, Selfhelp has dedicated itself to being a source of information, service, community, and quality home care for New Yorkers.
