Foster Grandparents (Senior Corps)
As a Foster Grandparent, you are a role model, a mentor, and a friend. Serving at one of many local organizations-including faith-based groups, Head Start Centers, schools, and other youth faciliites- 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 up to 40 hours per week. Some volunteers may qualify to earn a tax-free, hourly stipend. With Foster Grandparents, you will receive pre-service orientations, training, and supplemental accident and liability insurance while on duty.
