This intergenerational program is mutually beneficial to the senior volunteers and to the students they serve. Foster Grandparents mentor school-aged children to increase their positive behavior and accelerate their reading level. The program also enhances the quality of life of our senior volunteers by keeping them active and engaged in their community.
