CTI’s Senior Corps Foster Grandparent volunteers have been in the Dracut Elementary schools for over 20 years and have played an important role in helping children who need extra attention to thrive and succeed. More Foster Grandparents are needed in classrooms for the coming school year. Foster Grandparent volunteers must be 55 and older, commit to a 4 or 5 day week during the school year with a minimum of 15 to 20 hours a week. Income-eligible volunteers receive a small tax-free stipend plus holidays and earned leave as well as transportation assistance, volunteer recognition, monthly trainings, and other benefits. If you or someone you know may be eligible and enjoy helping children, please contact Christina Santos-Gordon, CTI Dir. of Community Resouces, at 978-654-5675 or by email.
