Your gift will help alleviate isolation for vulnerable seniors, providing them with personal connection and support while offering volunteer opportunities and mentorship to youth!
SeniorConnect alleviates social isolation among seniors and enhances the well-being of this vulnerable population, while simultaneously allowing students to benefit from their elders' wisdom and experiences. We train and empower high school and college students to provide often-isolated seniors with personal connection through regularly-scheduled phone calls and meaningful conversations. This one-to-one connection supports the mental health of all participants and forms relationships that bring generations together.
Senior Testimonial: "SeniorConnect has connected me with the new generation. Interacting weekly with Scott has made me feel younger because of our fun conversations. I consider him as a family because we share similar life experiences. We're able to express how it affects us and step out of our comfort zones. It's the highlight of my week, and I'm glad I was selected to be his senior."
