Rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors can intern with a diverse group of socially conscious peers to bring vital social connections to older adults. Through one of our four summer teen internship programs, you can develop leadership skills and engage in meaningful programs with older adults. Through a variety of intergenerational activities – including discussion groups, home visits, creative arts, and tech assistance – you can give back to the community this summer while earning over 112 community service hours. All DOROT intern programs are free.
We are monitoring COVID safety recommendations and making plans for in-person programming in Summer 2022. The internship will be a hybrid; two to three days a week in-person and one or two days will be virtual. Interns will need to travel to their internship location. Teen Interns need to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, including booster shot.
Plans will adjust based on the most current best practices but please plan to be available to volunteer in-person at the site you apply to, Mon – Thur, 10 AM – 4:30 PM.
