The Utah County Foster Grandparent Program is looking for seniors 55 or older, to serve as mentors, tutors, and care givers for children and youth within community organizations such as schools, hospitals, and youth centers.
They will work with trained professionals to provide assistance, support, and knowledge to children and teens with special needs. Foster Grandparents receive a small stipend (about $200 per month), monthly training, and in some areas, mileage reimbursement or transportation to the volunteer facility.
Volunteers must be income eligible (earn less than $1915 per month for a single person and $3102 for a married person), be willing to serve 15 or more hours per week and have the desire to help others. This is a fun and rewarding way to serve in your community!
Call the Foster Grandparent Program at 801-851-7784 for an application or questions.
