Coffee Talk

Help bring cheer and smiles to older Minnesotans with your friendly voice. Be a Wednesday Morning Coffee Talker!

Coffee Talk is a drop-in chat line that connects socially isolated older adults with caring volunteers for friendly conversation.

With words of encouragement and a listening ear, you will provide callers with friendly conversation, information about community resources, and opportunities to connect them with other Friends & Co services. Callers can remain anonymous, and there is no need to register or make an appointment. Volunteers answer calls Monday through Friday from 8 am to noon. Will you be there to answer when someone calls to chat?

Volunteers must be 18+, complete a volunteer application, and pass a background check. We are looking for help on Wednesdays from 8:00 a.m. - Noon. This is a virtual volunteer opportunity with training and staff support provided.

*Currently, we ask that all volunteers live in the Midwest in the CST time zone.
*University students needing volunteer hours for class are welcome to apply too.


For more information about volunteering, please contact Emma at elucchesi@friendsco.org or 612-746-0746!
