DOROT is a social services organization located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan that helps older adults. DOROT works closely with volunteers of all ages to engage seniors and alleviate social isolation. DOROT's goal is to bring the generations together. DOROT believes that seniors have a plethora of untapped knowledge and wisdom that can benefit the entire community. When the generations are brought together, everyone benefits.
DOROT’s Summer Teen Internship Program offers two four-week sessions for high school students entering 10th grade through graduating seniors. Through a competitive process, we choose up to 20 interns for each session. Summer interns are expected to volunteer with DOROT during the academic high school year.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis beginning in December 2015 and ending on May 13, 2016. Applicants are encouraged to apply early, as spots will likely fill up prior to May 13th. Interns can only participate in one session and applicants need to select their preference on the application.
