Catholic Charities Central MN Foster Grandparent Program, is looking for people ages 55 and over, to assist children in schools, Head Starts, and other non-profit settings. 

  • Do you enjoy spending your time with kids?

  • Can you picture yourself helping a teacher or direct supervisor by being a caring adult in their classroom?
  • As a classroom “Grandma” or “Grandpa”, what would be your favorite age or grade level to work with?

We offer many benefits to our Foster Grandparents, including a non-taxable stipend, transportation reimbursement and on-going educational and “personal interest” trainings.

Summer is a great time to get involved!  We can start the process according to your lifestyle, and you will be ready for the new school year!
