GENuine Connections™: Bridge the generational divide. Engage in meaningful small-group conversations and creative activities with high school students and other adults age 65+ through one of our four- to eight-week workshop series.

Aging Alone Together™ : Register for this six-week workshop series, designed specifically for solo agers, to learn how to skillfully handle the legal, logistical, and social challenges of growing older. This is your chance to join a supportive community and create an action plan that will empower you to make necessary decisions. New sessions are offered throughout the year.

Legacy Projects: Share your wisdom, family history, recipes and more in a DOROT Legacy Project. Through a series of Zoom interviews, a trained volunteer will capture and help you record a piece of your life story, in writing or using photos or video. You can then share your legacy with loved ones and generations to come.
