Act Of Listening

Act Of Listening was a collaboration between students from the University of Saint Francis and the staff at 89.1 WBOI through an AARP-funded grant. Part of the project’s goal was to alleviate loneliness and isolation in older, low-income adults. Over the 2018-19 school-year, students went out in teams of two and met a variety of older adults in Fort Wayne. One visit was recorded to bring these conversations to a wider audience.

Faculty advisors for Act Of Listening are Miles Fulwider, Jane Martin, and Kristin Miller. This program was also made possible thanks to the support of Trina Boedecker from the USF Office for Service and Social Action.
