Senior Corps Foster Grandparent Program

The East Bay Community Action Program's Foster Grandparent Program is currently seeking volunteers to serve in local schools, Head Start sites, libraries and other nonprofit organizations throughout the East Bay.

The program provides a unique service built on the natural bond between generations. Foster Grandparents receive a modest tax free hourly STIPEND which will not effect any federal, state or local benefit or entitlement. Foster Grandparents also receive a transportation allowance, meals during service, paid holidays and accident and liability insurance while on duty. Foster Grandparents must meet certain income eligibility requirements and be at least 55 year of age or older. In addition they must be caring people who love children and are willing to devote fifteen hours or more per week of service.
