Foster Grandparent Volunteer Program

What are Foster Grandparent Volunteers?

Foster Grandparent volunteers are adults 55 and older who provide one-on-one emotional support, mentoring and tutoring children with exceptional needs in 8 locations across the State of Texas.

Foster Grandparent volunteers are not the same as foster parents — the children do not live with you. You are a role model, mentor and friend. You will meet your mentee at a designated organization such as a public school, daycare, Head Start program, hospital, juvenile correction facility or any other child centered agency.

If you're 55 or older, and want to share your experience and compassion, you may have what it takes to be a Foster Grandparent volunteer. You could even earn a stipend based on hours volunteered ranging from $159 to $424 per month.
