Help engAGED promote the importance of social connection during Loneliness Awareness Week. Taking place June 12-16, our Fill-in-the-Blank campaign is open to open to anyone who would like to participate—your organization’s staff, volunteers, the consumers you serve and others. As you plan programs and activities for June, consider how your organization’s staff, volunteers and the consumers you serve can participate in the campaign to share how they stay #SociallyengAGED.

How to Participate

  1. Print the sign and fill in the blank to complete the sentence, “I stay socially engAGED by…”
  2. Think about how you stay #SociallyengAGED and encourage your staff, volunteers and the consumers you serve to do the same. This may be through volunteering, using technology, lifelong learning, spending time with family or friends, reading to children, participating in group art classes or more!
  3. Take a photo holding the sign. If you prefer to make a video, that works too!
  4. Tweet your picture or video using #engAGEDandConnected or post it to Facebook. Don’t forget to tag @engAGEDCenter in your posts! See below for some post ideas!
