Volunteer Programs

Your volunteer potential has never been stronger and the need has never been greater. When you volunteer, you're not just helping others–you're helping yourself. Volunteering leads to new discoveries and new friends. It's time to get involved!

Aging Partners has supported the community by linking volunteers to service opportunities based on their talents, interests and availability since 1973. The contribution of skills, knowledge and experience make a real difference to individuals, non-profits, faith-based and other community organizations.

Aging Partners has two volunteer programs that can connect you to an opportunity to make a difference in your community right here in Lincoln and Lancaster County.

Foster Grandparent Program (FGP)

Share Today. Shape Tomorrow.

In 1997, Aging Partners brought the Foster Grandparent Program to Lincoln and Lancaster County. As a Foster Grandparent, you're a role model, a mentor and a friend - serving at one of hundreds of local organizations - including faith-based groups, Head Start program, schools and other youth facilities.

You help children learn to read - provide one-on-one tutoring and guide children at a critical time in their lives. Put simply, you set a child on the path toward a successful future.

If you are 55 and over and would like to share your experience and compassion and are willing to serve at least 15 hours per week, call the Aging Partners Foster Grandparent Program at 402-441-7158 for details or to registers.
