Volunteers of America

You’ve Got What it Takes! Colorado older adults have a wealth of love, knowledge, and wisdom to share. Volunteers of America’s Foster Grandparents are bridging the gap between our most valuable assets - seniors and youth with amazing results. If you have a love for children, are over the age of 55, have a lower income, and the ability to volunteer 15 or more hours per week, we would love to talk with you more. Volunteers are paid a small stipend and are reimbursed for transportation. We are currently interviewing potential volunteers. Volunteers are placed in seven front range counties: Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Denver, El Paso, Jefferson, and Larimer.
