May is a month when we celebrate older Americans who spring into action to work for positive social change, help their fellow seniors, and take ownership of their own health and well-being.
Want to make a difference in a child’s life in our community?
Highlights of this wonderful program include:
- By volunteering in a local elementary or preschool you’ll mentor and support children academically and emotionally while building meaningful relationships with students and other adults in the community.
- Income-eligible seniors receive a grant-funded, tax-free stipend that won’t affect your Social Security benefits or any other assistance.
- Encouraging a child to reach their goals gives you a sense of purpose and gives that child confidence and the comfort of a caring adult.
The Friends Program coordinates the only Foster Grandparent Program in New Hampshire and we have openings in many communities! Maybe your hometown school is one of them!
