Community Partnerships

DOROT is proud of our long history of collaboration with social service organizations, faith-based organizations, schools, and more. Building and sustaining mutually beneficial community partnerships is key to our success. Working together, we engage more older adults, build a diverse community of social engagement, and strengthen our overall work.

Synagogue Partnerships

DOROT partners with local synagogues to support seniors, caregivers, clergy and caring committees. Our synagogue social workers proudly offer a critical layer of expertise to their important work by bringing our array of programs to synagogue communities.

The Pearls Of Wisdom

The Pearls of Wisdom, a multicultural touring ensemble of elder storytellers, is now a treasured part of DOROT. The Pearls travel to schools and senior programs throughout NYC to promote the folk-art tradition of storytelling, inspire audiences to share stories of their own, and create intergenerational community engagement.

Schools and Youth Organizations

DOROT works with over 100 schools and youth organizations each year to engage elementary, middle school and high school students in meaningful intergenerational programming. We introduce them to volunteer opportunities that make a difference as well as intergenerational workshops and service-learning programs that connect them with older New Yorkers.

Help Your Community Make GENuine Connections!

Teens and older adults meet weekly over Zoom in small groups to talk and participate in activities ranging from creative writing, chess, art, current events and so much more, leading to the discovery of new and shared perspectives. Volunteer today and experience the rewards of intergenerational friendship!
