DOROT's annual summer intergenerational programming returns June 24th and there will be a generous range of available workshops for 65+ volunteers!

June 24th - July 18th is our Jewish Summer Intergenerational Program (Session 1)
July 23rd - August 15th is our Secular Summer Intergenerational Program (session 2).

Join passionate high school teens in either (or both!) sessions for 60-90 minute in person programs from discussion group to theater and modern art, storytelling to tech help.

We also welcome 65+ volunteers who reside in either the Upper West or Upper East Side to reach out to us if interested in receiving teen visitors for weekly conversations!

Providing your presence and voice in the lives of high school youths is truly invaluable in DOROT's mission - thank you!
