About

Seniors find this volunteer program hugely rewarding and enjoyable. The "Foster Grandparent Program" pays a small tax-free stipend to moderate-income seniors in exchange for volunteering with children at schools, childcare centers, Head Starts, after-school programs and other youth settings. Volunteers receive a stipend that does NOT affect Social Security, rental assistance or any other benefits. This is a unique opportunity just for those over 55.

Volunteers are trained to encourage and support learning in a variety of settings. For example, you might help children with worksheets, read to them, listen to them read, tutor children in math, and provide emotional support.

Volunteers receive ongoing support, monthly workshops and enjoy a renewed sense of purpose. Foster Grandparents are highly valued members of school communities and the impact of their presence in the classroom is remarkable.
