Foster Grandparent Program

We are starting our first ever Foster Grandparent Program (FGP) at Ware Shoals Primary! If you are 55 years or older and want to make a difference in the lives of children, this program is for you - even (if you're not a grandparent).  The FGP was established in 1965 as a part of AmeriCorps Seniors. Volunteers (men and women) work with children in schools, government programs, and non-profit organizations. 

Some volunteers may qualify for an hourly stipend and assistance with the cost of transportation. For more information, call Piedmont Agency on Aging at 864-223-0164, ext. 223. Applications are available at the school.
