Center for Advocacy for the Rights and Interests of the Elderly

Contact: Michele Mathes, Development DIrector, (215) 480-5963,

CARIE’s mission is to promote the rights, well-being and autonomy of older adults through advocacy, education and action.

 We enthusiastically welcome bar/bat mitzvah students who are creative and/or knowledgeable about technology to work with us to develop and provide content for a webpage that would engage young people and introduce them to the experiences of older adults. The page would be part of CARIE’s website ( Some examples of possible webpage content include young people’s stories of older adults in their own lives, interviews with elders in the community, and information about current issues affecting elders’ lives. We very much look forward to hearing ideas from our volunteer(s) and would love to talk with anyone interested in working with us on this new venture. Thank you!
