Senior Volunteer Opportunities

Senior Corps Foster Grandparents

The foster grandparent program provides an opportunity for older men and women to interact with children through active involvement at locations such as nonprofit day care centers, Head Start, state-supported facilities, public and private schools, and home settings. The “grandparents” serve youth with exceptional and special needs.

Any successful program involving human interaction has specific goals. The main purpose of the foster grandparent program is to serve children and to support the work of teachers and child care providers. Volunteers also add a note of informality and intimacy to the site location. Learn more about this national program.
