How it Works
For over 45 years VCI has operated The AmeriCorps Seniors Foster Grandparent Program of Central Florida. During the past half-century, our AmeriCorps Seniors Foster Grandparent Volunteers have made positive impacts on the lives of thousands of children. We have achieved these results by partnering with public schools, Head Start organizations, Boys & Girls Clubs, and kindergartens all across Central Florida. However, many of these organizations have either limited or eliminated in-person services, opting for virtual alternatives.
Our AmeriCorps Seniors Foster Grandparent Volunteers have served in schools providing in-classroom assistance to students who need a little extra attention to succeed academically. We have decided to provide these services directly to families by having our AmeriCorps Seniors Foster Grandparent Volunteers utilize teleconference video solutions to assist your children in their school work.
Families apply to VCI to receive an AmeriCorps Seniors Foster Grandparent Volunteer. Parents will meet with one of our coordinators who will ascertain your child’s needs and how our volunteers can assist you in providing for your child’s educational needs.
