Who Are We?
For the past 40 years, Foster Grandparent volunteers have been providing one-on-one tutoring and mentoring assistance to students who have been identified by teachers and other professionals as having special education needs. Each year over 1,200 students pre-K through 8th grade, show growth proficiency in reading which helps them keep up with their peers in reading. From pre-K to 3rd grade, children learn to read. From 4th grade and on, children need to be able to read to learn.
Active senior volunteers enriching the lives of special needs and at risk children by enhancing their educational proficiency.
