The Foster Grandparent Program is a national service AmeriCorps Seniors volunteer program that provides income eligible people age 55 and older, who can commit 20 volunteer hours per week, to help at-risk children learn to read English.
Foster Grandparent volunteers mentor, support and tutor at-risk children at elementary schools and preschools throughout Salt Lake County.
Volunteers receive a non-taxable $3.00 per hour stipend as well as travel reimbursement (mileage or public transportation) to support their volunteer efforts. The stipend and travel reimbursement do not count as income when determining eligibility for benefits such as food assistance and housing.
Foster Grandparent volunteers are age 55+, meet income requirements (about $2265 per month or less for one person), must pass a background check and volunteer for 20 hours per week.
Orientation and training provided.
