Center for Excellence in Learning Through Service (CELTS)

Adopt-a-Grandparent Program

About the Program

Adopt-a-Grandparent is an outreach program for Berea elders. The program matches college student volunteers with residents of local long-term care centers. Volunteers visit with residents for at least an hour per week, and participate in special monthly programs.

“Getting involved with Adopt-A-Grandparent is a way for me to show appreciation and support for our elders who have done so much to enrich and strengthen our communities.” –Grace Par, ‘13

AGP volunteers and staff have an opportunity to build one-on-one relationships with elders while offering both friendship and a smile. Participants often look at life from a new perspective after the experience, and learn about the past from a first-hand source, while also learning more about themselves.
