The Foster Grandparent Program places volunteers 55 years of age or older in public or nonprofit settings such as schools, Head Start centers, correctional institutions, and child care centers, to serve as tutors and mentors to children and youth with special needs.  Among other activities, they review schoolwork, reinforce values, teach skills and care for infants and children with disabilities.

 Foster Grandparents are working with Early Head Start and Head Start children in classrooms, offering a valuable generational experience for children and families.
