    DOROT mobilizes volunteers of all ages to improve the lives of the elderly. Our intergenerational programs engage youth in volunteer activities within an educational framework, increase their sensitivity to the needs of the elderly, and further their commitment to service. Individuals, families, and groups are welcome to visit a senior in their home and bring a gift package of traditional foods and holiday items. Visits take place on the East and Upper West Side of Manhattan as well as in Westchester.

  3. Jewish Home Lifecare – Geriatric Career Development (GCD) Program
    The GCD Program is an intergenerational afterschool program that integrates at-risk youth into the long-term care setting. During the school year, students spend 8-10 hours each week at JHL participating in academic support, college preparation, healthcare career preparation, and life skills counseling. Students interact with the elders in a one-to-one mentoring relationship, on nursing communities in a clinical role and in elder social circles hosting group activities for each nursing unit.

  4. Queens Community Hope House
    QCH's Neighborhood Intergenerational Chore and Errand (N.I.C.E.) Program serves both youth and senior citizens in our community. In this program, youth perform shopping, laundry, and errands for homebound frail seniors. They also share relevant information and discuss pertinent current events with the senior clients as part of their visit. In addition youth work in local senior centers and nursing homes assisting these institutions in areas such as transportation, arts and recreation. Our program currently serves over sixty seniors with limited mobility and hundreds of other senior citizens as well. The seniors receive a needed service to enhance their quality of life while teens are provided with employment, job training and life skills development. The N.I.C.E. Intergenerational Program takes two seemingly separate populations and helps them realize their commonalities. The relationship building that occurs allows for enhanced self-esteem, and a better understanding of each generation for both age groups.

  8. Bishop’s Commons Enriched Living – Bishop’s Commons Assistive Living Residence
    Since 2000, Bishop’s Commons Enriched Living has embraced children of all ages with creative and age appropriate activities and programs. They utilize a neighboring elementary school, day care, and SUNY state college students to foster interaction and friendships with the seniors living at Bishop's Commons. On a weekly basis, our community creates activities for any age that is interactive and meaningful where children and seniors learn from each other, share experiences and life stories, and simply have fun. It begins with the youngest of ages, where infants join seniors for “Lullaby Baby Socials” where singing, rocking, and floor time is simple and easy, yet fulfilling for everyone. Bishop’s Commons staff works to make a meaningful child/senior interaction and experience whenever the opportunity arises so much that the enriched living residence has acquired a reputation around the entire Oswego community where schools that are farther away are calling to bring their students in to benefit from the programs.

  10. Evening Edition – My Second Home
    The Evening Edition at My Second Home begins at 3pm and ends at 7pm. The first hour is group therapy and peer group support led by a social worker to provide an opportunity for participants to address any challenges they may be experiencing due to their diagnosis. The intergenerational aspects of the program begin at 4pm starting with a current events discussion using i-Pad technology with local high school students. We are currently running an art history project with an after school group of children whose ages range from 8-10 years old. We use technology to show artwork done by the Great Masters and do a hands-on art project inspired by what we saw. The evening culminates with a farm fresh dinner enjoyed by both the Evening Edition Participants and the high school students. After dinner the students teach participants how they can stay connected to friends using social media.
