Description of work:

“Volunteer New York! matches student volunteers with seniors on a one-to-one basis, bringing compassionate conversation and care into their lives and giving volunteers an opportunity to listen and learn. Volunteers and their matches will share a phone call once a week for 20 minutes. Volunteer New York! will provide guidelines and conversation questions for the volunteers.”
