Foster Grandmas Are Making a Difference!

In Northern Nevada they’ve figured out the best way to help kids who are struggling in school… bring in a Grandma (or a Grandpa)! The Foster Grandparent Program of Northern Nevada places senior citizens in schools, juvenile detention centers, and transitional housing facilities to build relationships, mentor kids, and help them excel in school. This program not only helps the kids, it gives the volunteers something to dedicate themselves to in their retirement.

This story is brought to us by Bus 52, “a year long project devoted to reminding and reconnecting America to its roots of community, innovation and improvement. Every week, the team will film, upload and post videos and articles about people from every kind of circumstance confronting challenges in their community through innovative ways.” We look forward to bringing you more inspiring Bus 52 films in the weeks to come!
