Mission

As students and affiliates of Stanford with loved ones in our lives who are experiencing social hardship during this pandemic, we’re passionate about our mission to foster meaningful companionships between elders and members of our community.

Our mission is to foster intergenerational companionship during these changing times.

 

By connecting young adult volunteers with elders over phone calls and virtual concerts, we’re encouraging mutually positive social interactions, sharing of life experiences, and lasting friendships on both sides of the conversation.

 

We are striving to create a virtual platform where students can learn from the important life experiences of seniors and seniors can benefit from the enthusiasm and passion of our volunteers.

 

We all need somebody to lean on, especially during times of crisis.
