Rising Sophomores - Rising Seniors

The DOROT Summer Teen Internship Program welcomes highly motivated and socially conscious rising 10th-12th graders who want to make a difference in the lives of older adults. Over the course of 4 weeks, interns work with peers, develop leadership skills and form meaningful connections through a variety of hands-on intergenerational experiences in the community and at program sites. Students earn over 100 hours of community service and develop hands-on leadership experience.

This unique four-week summer opportunity engages a diverse group of socially-conscious high school students in providing 100+ community service hours working with older people. Interns can:

  • Make meaningful connections across generations
  • Practice creativity through the arts.
  • Choose the programs that work for them like intergenerational theater, film making, games, music and more.
  • Teach an older person to use a smart phone
  • Facilitate intergenerational classes
  • Plan intergenerational trips to museums
  • Get to know an older person one-on-one
