Foster Grandparent volunteers provide one-on-one mentoring a few hours a week to at-risk youth to help them boost self-esteem and overall success. Volunteers can positively impact the lives of children and youth, find a meaningful way to give back, and earn extra income.
In this COVID-19 environment, Foster Grandparents are finding ways to support teachers and students remotely through phone and video chat.

The Centering the Silenced Summit featured 15 voices that have been historically marginalized and silenced. These humans answered one main question for us - what is the single greatest social or liberative challenge facing us, as Christians, at this time? During our chats, we spent some time breaking down their answer and looking at the critical and practical ways that the Church should respond.
