About The Project
This Remote Volunteer Project helps combat isolation and loneliness in local retirement communities. Activate Good is working with partners in retirement communities and nonprofit organizations to reach out to seniors who may be feeling isolated or lonely during the Coronavirus outbreak. Retirement communities and organizations schedule call times where both a volunteer and a senior will dial into a teleconference number and have a friendly conversation.
Senior Communities and Organizations: Start Here
Do you represent a retirement community or nonprofit serving seniors? Learn more about connecting volunteers to have phone chats with your seniors and register seniors here. You will not have to provide private phone numbers; the senior will be asked to dial in to our conference number at their designated call time.
