We are looking for grandparents and other older adults in the community to participate in a special program called Bridges: Growing Older, Growing Together. Volunteers are invited to spend one hour per week for six weeks in an [elementary school classroom], interacting with children under the direction of a classroom teacher in ways that lead to mutual understanding, respect, and friendship.
Volunteers do NOT need to live in Burlington. Classes begin in January with volunteer training taking place on January 3, 2012 at 10:30. Winter weather and safety is always a concern; please know that even if the schools are open, the Bridges: Growing Older, Growing Together program might be cancelled. For more information, please contact Myrna Saltman at 781-272-4430.
