Foster Grandparent volunteers work one-to-one with students to help them learn to read, improve academics, to provide positive encouragement, and to serve as a role model.
Volunteers serve in schools and Head Start centers and may choose the days and hours they are able to give. All volunteers receive training, transportation reimbursement, and annual recognition.
Interested candidates must be age 55 years and over and enjoy sharing their time and experience with children. An application and a background check are part of the registration process to begin this rewarding volunteer opportunity.
Volunteers who meet income guidelines and are able to commit to a minimum of 15 hours each week may also qualify to earn a non-taxable hourly stipend, paid holiday, sick, and vacation hours through the Foster Grandparent Program.
