Description

MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A CHILD

The Foster Grandparent Program offers seniors age 55 and older opportunities to serve as mentors, tutors, and loving caregivers for children and youth with special needs. If you are interested in serving as a Foster Grandparent, you must meet income eligibility guidelines, and you will receive a modest, tax-free stipend to offset the cost of volunteering. Foster Grandparents serve 20 hours a week, usually 4 hours a day Monday through Friday, serving children directly with one-on-one, hands-on service. Other benefits include reimbursement for transportation, some meals during service,and accident and liability insurance while on duty. Pre-Service and monthly training sessions provided.

Would you recommend MISSOULA FGP?

by Lee h. (March 23, 2011)
To work with the kindergarten children has been rewarding, educational and definitely fun. The kids are like sponges and they do understand things in a whole different perspective which makes everything more interesting. The children are great. I truly enjoy them and the wonderful teachers I have the opportunity to work with have been extraordinary.
