The Friends Program strengthens communities by building relationships that empower people, encourage commmunity service, and restore faith in the human spirit.
Enjoy children's smiles and change lives just by showing you care, at a SCHOOL OR CHILDCARE CENTER near you.
Receive a Federal tax-free stipend for volunteering that does NOT affect Social Security, rent subsidies or ANY type of assistance.
Just for folks age 55+!
Join others finding renewed meaning in life. Children and teachers will be wonderful new friends. We will find a perfect place for you when you choose the age-group you like best -- infants, toddlers, kindergarteners, first or second graders or older. It's your choice, and will be in your own town.
The program pays the stipend, plus mileage reimbursements and often a meal at the site. We provide training and monthly workshops to keep you informed and in touch with other volunteers.
New relationships and a new lease on life, giving back to your own community, feeling connected and being very appreciated!
