United Way’s Foster Grandparent Program needs volunteers age 55 and over to make a difference in the lives of children in Chittenden, Franklin & Grand Isle Counties. Foster Grandparent volunteers serve 15-40 hours a week at preschools, child cares, Head Starts and elementary schools under the supervision of teachers and staff. They may help with tutoring, mentoring, and self-esteem building activities appropriate for the age of the child. In Chittenden County, volunteers are particularly needed for schools in Burlington, Milton, Huntington and Essex, but many other locations are available. A small non-taxable stipend is provided to income-eligible applicants. Contact Susan Abell at 861-7823 or email
