Neep help improving your social connectedness?

Volunteer. It's a great way for you to start building a sense of community, which in turn can help you make new friends and connect with others. 

Join a group. If  you enjoy reading or dancing, joining a book club or dance group can be a good way to meet people with similar interests.

Explore a new activity. Take a friend and enroll in a painting, exercise, or pottery class. It can be a good way to meet new people and expand your social group.
