Now I know a lot of people in the area over 55 and think they would make a great grandparent, if they are one already. Here are a few details about the Red River Valley Foster Grandparent Program. Requirements to become a foster grandparent include being 55 or old- er, be able to serve 15 hours per week, and have a sincere interest in be- ing a positive role model tbr children. Some benefits include a $2.65/hour non-taxable stipend, 12 paid holi- days, transportation, supplemental insurance, noon meal, and pre-service orientation training and ongoing monthly training. Foster grandpments go m elementary schools, head start programs, child cm'e centers, and other programs to work with chil&'en to help them achieve their social, behavioral and educational goals. As a tbster grandparent, you're a role model, a mentor, and a friend. The program asks you to share your time today to help a child's tomorrow. The Foster Grandparent Program is a part of Senior Corps, along with RSVP and the Senior Companion Pro am.
