In order to flatten the curve of COVID-19, we need to practice physical distancing, but we need to remain socially connected.
During this time of social distancing, all of us are at risk of becoming increasingly isolated. The Community Voices Initiative is a program that aims to help minimize social isolation by connecting students with members across the Boston community through meaningful, virtual interactions. Together, we can build a stronger sense of community and connection. After signing up, a community member and student will be paired together for phone conversations at a time and frequency that they mutually agree upon. We encourage pairs to have conversations about truly anything (e.g. favorite hobbies/games, life stories, favorite movies/artists, memories of loved ones, technology advice, etc.) and develop meaningful relationships to foster a greater sense of community during this difficult and uncertain time.

If you know someone in the Boston area who would be interested in participating in the Community Voices Initiative, but isn’t able to sign up online, they can call our registration line at (617) 651-1909.
