Social isolation and loneliness can lead to serious emotional and cognitive health consequences. Lower-income seniors often feel the impact the most. The Sharing Network offers seniors living in Brooklyn, NY, eighteen different hour-long conversation and activity groups a week. Participants can join with any phone, even a landline, to keep them socially engaged and mentally strong.

We're looking for monitors with good Zoom tech skills to be in the background helping to make meetings run smoothly. Tasks include starting and ending meetings, calling participants into groups, managing noise, playing recorded sound and helping group leaders when issues arise. We also want you to make a note when a notable moment occurs in a meeting for social media and when members have concerns that have to be met.

We want you to regularly join one or more groups a week, enjoy listening in on the warm conversations and to feel a part of this great project that improves the lives of lower-income seniors every day.
