AmeriCorps Seniors Foster Grandparents (FGP) Replacement and Expansion Opportunity – Due 02/01/24
Fiscal Year (FY) 2024 AmeriCorps Seniors Foster Grandparents (FGP) Replacement and Expansion Opportunity Program
AmeriCorps improves lives, strengthens communities, and fosters civic engagement through service and volunteering. AmeriCorps brings people together to tackle some of the country’s most pressing challenges through national service and volunteerism. AmeriCorps members and AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers serve with organizations dedicated to the improvement of communities and those serving. AmeriCorps helps make service a cornerstone of our national culture.
Established in 1965, the AmeriCorps Seniors Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) engages adults aged 55 and over to provide caring and experienced tutors and mentors to children and youth with special or exceptional needs, or who would benefit from the one-one-one attention an AmeriCorps Seniors volunteer can provide. AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers serve in schools, Head Starts, drug treatment centers, correctional institutions, and childcare centers. Among other activities, they review schoolwork, reinforce values, teach parenting skills to young parents, and care for premature infants and children with disabilities. AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers often maintain an ongoing, intensive relationship with the children and youth served for a year or longer.
