Mission Statement

The Foster Grandparent Program connects volunteers age 55 and over with children and young people with exceptional needs. Volunteers mentor, support, and help vulnerable children.

Description

As a Foster Grandparent, you're a role model, a mentor, and a friend. Serving at local Head Start Centers, schools, and other youth facilities--you help children learn to read, provide one-on-one tutoring, and guide children at a critical time in their lives. Put simply, you give the kind of comfort and love that sets a child on the path toward a successful future.

Foster Grandparents serve a minimum of 15 hours and up to 40 hours per week. Qualified volunteers earn a tax-free, hourly stipend, travel reimbursement, a meal, training and supplemental accident and liability insurance while on duty, and so much more.

And remember: When you volunteer, you're not just helping others--you're helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends. Plus, studies show that volunteering helps you live longer and promotes a positive outlook on life.

So get involved, and join Foster Grandparents today!

The Foster Grandparent Program is made possible by a federal grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service and is sponsored by Utah County Government.
