The Foster Grandparent Program may be the perfect fit for you. FGP is for men and women ages 55 and older who volunteer to spend time with children while earning an hourly stipend. Volunteers are assigned to classrooms at schools, Head Start programs or alternative education programs. There are volunteer opportunities in Juniata, Mifflin, Snyder, Union and Northumberland counties. Foster grandparents work one-on-one or in groups with children who have special needs, but volunteers do not need to have prior experience. Volunteers complete an orientation training, which provides necessary information to fulfill the duties.
