About

The Foster Grandparent Program offers people, ages 55 and older, the opportunity to help young students be successful. A tax-free stipend and benefits are available if income guidelines are met.

Being a Foster Grandparent means mentoring young students for 15-40 hours a week, providing warm friendship, understanding, individualized attention and unhurried help to children who need a helping hand.

A Foster Grandparent works in the classroom, closely supervised by teachers, either as a one-on- one tutor or with small groups of children.

Requirements include:

Attend required monthly in-service training, and pass a pre-placement background check. Must respect confidentiality and abide by the rules of the school and the Foster Grandparent Program.

Benefits:

  • Tax free stipend provided to income eligible volunteers.
  • Training to prepare you for serving.
  • Assistance with the cost of transportation to and from place of work and official project activities.
  • Paid personal leave - encompasses vacation and sick time.
  • Paid holidays (ten per year).
  • Insurance: excess accident, automobile liability and medical coverage while serving at your volunteer assignments.
  • Some schools provide free lunch through their hot lunch program
  • Camaraderie of other dedicated Foster Grandparents serving in Missoula area schools.
