CEO Foster Grandparent Program is actively recruiting adults 55+ in Rensselaer, Albany, and Schenectady Counties who are interested in volunteering with youth 15-40 hours per week. Our volunteers are placed in early learning and school-based classrooms within their community. Volunteers work directly with youth through reading together, one on one guidance, as well as educational and emotional support.  As an Americorps Senior volunteer our Foster Grandparents receive an hourly tax-free stipend, paid training, paid time off, annual recognition events, and the opportunity for socializing with other like-minded adults. Our volunteers are active members of their communities, fostering and nurturing youth as classroom grandparent figures. Eligibility requirements include a full background clearance in addition to meeting income guidelines under 200% of poverty or below $30,000 per year for a single person. Please contact our program office at 518-272-6012 ext. 315 to learn more or apply.
