The volunteers work between 8 and 40 hours each week, helping students with reading, math, art projects, and more. Foster Grandparents have the opportunity to serve as both mentors and role models to students over the course of months or even years.

The program has been around since 1965 and is sponsored by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of St. Cloud.
