Become a Foster Grandparent

Serve, Encourage, Inspire
Do you - or someone you know - enjoy helping children learn?
 
100 0646You or a fellow senior can make a big difference in the lives of N.H. youngsters. 
 
Foster Grandparents are retired folks, 55 and up, who take great pride and satisfaction in helping kids reach their potential.
 
As a volunteer, you'll serve in a school or childcare center close to home. Also, Friends Foster Grandparents choose the age level of the children they work with. Foster Grandparents work one-on-one or in small groups of kids to help them achieve. The children will be thankful for the support - and you'll feel good knowing that you're helping kids grow and reach their potential. 
 
Also, through a federal grant the Friends Program has secured, income-eligible seniors receive a tax-free stipend to offset expenses related to their service; this stipend does not affect Social Security or housing benefits. 
 
Why should you volunteer? One of our volunteers said it best:
 
"Being a Foster Grandparent has brought me nothing but joy, and a good feeling of being able to help some of these beautiful children, in our schools. They need our help and love."
