Training sessions for Foster Grandparent program set
Adults 55 and older are being hired to fill openings for classroom Foster Grandparents based on income eligibility and background screening.
Training sessions begin June 18 in Columbus with school assignments beginning in mid-August.
Foster Grandparents serve in classrooms, Head Start centers and other youth-serving programs throughout Bartholomew, Brown, Decatur, Jackson and Jennings counties.
Serving with Foster Grandparents provides seniors the opportunity to share their lifetime of experiences, talents, learning, wisdom and interest in a one-on-one situation.
For information about the training, contact the program director at mdebock @thrive-alliance.org or toll-free 866-644-6407, ext. 2769, or visit foster grandparensthrive.org.
