The District is partnering with Senior Corps and the Foster Grandparent Program of Central PA to bring the Foster Grandparent Program to Southern Columbia's elementary and middle school students. Foster Grandparents serve as tutors, mentors, and role models for students. The Foster Grandparent program is open to volunteers 55 and over who can serve between 15 and 40 hours a week. Volunteers receive a small stipend, daily meal, and assistance with transportation to offset the cost of volunteering. Men and women who are 55 years of age or older and who love working with children can obtain more information about how to become a Foster Grandparent by calling the Program office in Selinsgrove at (570) 374-9196 or toll-free at (866) 374-9196.
