The Opportunity Alliance has openings for Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion Volunteers in Cumberland, York and Oxford counties. Those who are 55 or older and want to make a difference in the lives of others while having a great time and earning a little extra money may have what it takes to be a volunteer.

Foster Grandparents mentor and support academic achievement of children in schools. Senior Companions provide companionship, local transportation and respite to elders seeking to remain living in their homes.

Volunteers who commit to a schedule and meet generous income guidelines receive a tax-free stipend, mileage reimbursement and other benefits including monthly training and the opportunity to connect with other volunteers.

To learn how to help the community by joining either program call 207-773-0202 or email [email protected] and their volunteer coordinators will explain how to get involved.
