GenLynk Senior Buddy System
A companion "program that connects senior residents to 50+ local community volunteers through telephone and videochat conversations. [The] goal is to match each registered senior resident with a volunteer based on preference selections in the sign up form. This “buddy system” allows volunteers to maintain contact with the senior they are matched with. Callers can tell each other jokes, read a book, sing a song, or just have some lighthearted conversation. For more details, please email directly Ben Burns, the project founder, community volunteer organizer and a Winchester High School student. He can be reached at email@example.com.
