Description

Mentoring to Ensure a Better Tomorrow for Today's Youth

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 and exceptional 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 15 - 40 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, an annual physical, and accident and liability insurance while on duty. Pre-Service and monthly training sessions provided.

Would you recommend Foster Grandparent Program - Community Action Council?

by Danita C. from Lexington, KY (Administrator for this Organization) (2011-12-28 08:53:11.0)
The Foster Grandparent Program is an excellant opportunity for individuals to not only provide a much needed service to youth but to also enhance the lives of the seniors that come into daily contact with the children they serve. In addition, both the community and families directly benefit from the intervention and assistance the Foster Grandparent's provide to youth in need.
