We are currently seeking volunteers to make calls weekly, dedicating 45-90 minutes to remind participants about their upcoming group meetings. The primary goal is to combat loneliness and isolation among older residents in public housing in Brooklyn, with a focus on Black women.

Requirements:


  • Availability once a week between 4-7 PM ET
  • Access to a phone and a reliable internet connection
  • Strong conversational skills
  • Interest in older people



How to Apply:


If you have a passion for positively impacting the lives of seniors and possess the communication skills necessary to convey information pleasantly, we invite you to contact us. Please send us a message expressing your interest and detailing your relevant experience to apply.


Benefits:


  • Contribute to improving the lives of seniors facing loneliness
  • Enjoy a flexible volunteering schedule
