Conversations to Remember is a nonprofit dedicated towards combating loneliness and isolation felt by senior citizens.
This opportunity is part of their virtual visit program. This program matches 2-3 college students with residents of long-term care, assisted living, and memory care communities for virtual video visits. The program provides training about the best ways to interact with the seniors, as well as additional support throughout their service. Students are matched based on the times they’re available, with a senior at the same time, and they have a regular, weekly appointment for their visit.
- students volunteer 1-2 hours per week
- a call lasts up to 1 hour (depending on the senior’s attention span and mood on each day)
- students volunteer for approximately 16 weeks
You can read more about the program on the Conversations to Remember flyer and website. Fill out the Volunteer Interest Form to discuss opportunities. Reach out with any questions to Shailey Shah: email@example.com.
