Bridging and Enriching Generations
Volunteer Grandparents is a non-profit organization aiming to create and strengthen intergenerational relationships and enriching the lives of seniors, children, and families since 1973! For over 40 years, Volunteer Grandparents has been dedicated to being a leader and advocate of intergenerational bonds among youth and seniors in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia. Our programs are instrumental in linking low-income, underprivileged children without the immediate presence of grandparents with local senior volunteers. Our volunteers provide families and the community with support and encouragement by sharing their skills, knowledge and experience.
In 2015, our organization supported 35 Family Matches and 12 School Grandparent Volunteers. We also continue to have tremendous volunteer support with the promotion of our programs in the community and at special events. Click here to learn more about us.
