About the program

Volunteers over the age of 55 are placed in classrooms and work one-on-one with children who have special needs. Volunteers receive stipends and can volunteer up to 40 hours per week.  

We Serve

Senior individuals looking to get out of the house and/or supplement their income. Since this is an income-based program, people on fixed income typically qualify.
