Foster Grandparents

The Foster Grandparents program matches income-eligible senior adults aged 55 and older with children and youth, who serve as tutors role models, and mentors for children in childcare centers, elementary schools, middle schools, and after-school programs.

Foster Grandparent volunteers serve one-on-one or in a small group setting with children offering specialized assistance to help them gain confidence and improve their academic performance and potential. Foster Grandparent volunteers serve 20 hours per week and receive a stipend, paid holidays, mileage reimbursement and liability insurance.

The program is funded by the AmeriCorps Seniors and United Way of Greater Greensboro and Greater High Point and is sponsored in Guilford County by Senior Resources of Guilford.
