Contactivity

Are you looking to make a difference in the life of an isolated senior citizen? Selwyn House and Contactivity Seniors Program have a special intergenerational partnership that allows seniors and youth to connect in a variety of ways. Here’s how you can get involved:

*All of the opportunities count towards Duke of Edinburgh service hours for students in Senior School who are pursuing the Award.

Leave out Loneliness: Connecting with Seniors weekly via zoom 

Partner up with a senior citizen and spend time with him/her weekly on Zoom for one hour. Talk about what’s happening in the world, share stories and common interests, play games online like Scrabble or chess. Connect and be there for each other! 
  • Senior School students - typically do this on Mondays from 4-5 p.m. or at another time mutually agreed upon by you and your senior partner
  • Middle School students - typically do this on Tuesdays anytime between 3-5 p.m. or at another time mutually agreed upon by you and your senior partner 
Photography
If you love taking photos and have some knowledge of the technical aspects of photography, consider volunteering as a teaching assistant in an online class for senior citizens. You will act as a student helped to the teachers of the course.

Digital Literacy
If you are a computer whiz and want to help senior citizens with things like understanding social media, using Google Suite, organizing files and folders, emailing, etc., consider volunteering as a teaching assistant in an online class for senior citizens. You act as a helper to the digital literacy teacher. 

***Sign up here if any of these opportunities interest you!***
