Our volunteers are the agents of change in every program DOROT offers. Older adults and others across the generations make the difference, when they choose from a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. During COVID-19, volunteers are lending a hand with office support over the phone and online, knitting for older adults in need, greeting participants in Zoom and phone classes and engaging in intergenerational programs.
Opportunities for Volunteers 65+ with Youth
Find common ground with teens through fun and meaningful intergenerational programming. Connect and build bonds with Generation Z and make an impact in our multi-generational community.
Looking for a structured volunteer opportunity in a warm and friendly setting? Want to use your administrative skills to support DOROT’s mission? Join us as an office volunteer! We could use your help registering older adults in our programs through phone interactions and data entry.
Knitting & Crochet Group
