[Ongoing Project] At Your Service

The At Your Service Volunteer Program connects Columbia and Barnard students to the Terence Cardinal Cooke Health Care Center through a unique volunteer experience: volunteers are expected to both assist staff as necessary and spend one-on-one time as companions to long-term care residents. At Your Service hosts biweekly reflection sessions to share volunteer experiences, article discussions, educational presentations, and talks by guest speakers discussing relevant topics with regards to palliative care, healthcare demographics, communication, grieving, and more. Through this program, students are able to learn more about palliative care and foster stronger bonds with the residents at Terence Cardinal Cooke Health Care Center.
