Mentor program boosted
December 2, 2022
The Northland Foundation was recently awarded a federal grant of $500,000 over two years to support intergenerational programming in northeast Minnesota, leveraging the foundation’s “AGE to age” program that brings generations together in tutoring and help in children’s programs.
The program taps the skills and experience of 500 older adult volunteers to support children and youth in tutoring, out-of-school time, and summer enrichment activities like reading programs, homework help, art clubs, sewing projects, fitness activities and holiday gatherings.
Anyone age 55 or older can become an “AGE to age” volunteer by contacting local AmeriCorps Seniors coordinators:
