Mission Statement

The Pepperdine University Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) is an innovative learning community where faculty, staff, and students of diverse cultures and perspectives work collaboratively to foster academic excellence, social purpose, meaningful service, and personal fulfillment. Our spirit, energy, and actions will be an inspiration to education and psychology communities.

Description

The Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) offers a multigenerational approach to community volunteerism by giving seniors the opportunity to volunteer with youth ranging from infancy to 21 years of age. Foster Grandparents are mentors, tutors, and friends to children with exceptional needs or circumstances. We partner with schools and community-based organizations in service planning areas (SPA) 6 and 8, which encompass Carson, Compton, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Torrance, and Watts. We invite you to learn more about our dedicated volunteers, community partners and the Foster Grandparent Program.


Pepperdine University has served as a sponsor of the Foster Grandparent Program since 1972. This program is a staple of the Pepperdine family, originating at the first campus on 79th and Vermont. Through this long-standing commitment, Pepperdine facilitates and manages collaborations between community service agencies, schools, educators, and volunteers willing to serve those most in need.
