Foster Grandparents

Organization: United Planning Organization

UPO’s Foster Grandparent Program trains low-income seniors with caring spirits to provide attention, guidance, and support to DC children in a variety of local settings, including early education centers, elementary schools, hospitals, and youth programs.

Volunteering as a foster grandparent is the perfect opportunity for individuals aged 55 and older to share their experience and wisdom with children who will cherish the lessons to be learned.
