Hello Future Volunteers,

Thank you visiting the Adopt-A-Grandparent OrgSync page. We are super excited to hear from you. You can visit our Volunteer Center website to find out more information about all of our programs and the specific details required for your involvement.

Adopt-A-Grandparent applications are typically open at the beginning and end of the semester. You can access the application for Adopt-A-Grandparent or any other Volunteer Center program on OrgSync. You can also visit the Volunteer Center website to find out more information about all of our programs and the specific details required to get involved.

We work with four assisted living facilities in the Mount Pleasant area. You are paired with a resident and are required to visit with them an hour a week. We have trainings once a month on Fridays. Those range from crafts to presentations from professors on campus. The goal of AAG is to create and continue meaningful relationships with the residents.

Be sure to check out the Volunteer Center's Orgsync page for more volunteer opportunities. If you have any other questions or concerns please let us know. We hope to see your application sometime in the spring! 

Below you can also visit the Volunteer Centers org sync account to register and find other opportunities we offer for all of our other programs throughout the year. You can also find our Adopt-A-Grandparent page here as well.

Description

Adopt-A-Grandparent (AAG) is a co-mentoring program that seeks to foster positive, meaningful relationships between CMU students and residents at Maplewood Assisted Living of Mount Pleasant. The program matches students with a senior based on similar interests and each pair spends at least one hour per week together visiting, playing games, and learning from each other. Participants also attend monthly special events together and take part in activities like bingo, arts and crafts, and movie nights.

CMU students have so much to offer our friends at Maplewood including friendship, enthusiasm, and fun. Likewise, students involved in the Adopt-a-Grandparent program say that they have gained wisdom, love, and life experience from their adopted grandparents. If you love working with senior citizens and are looking for a unique experience to enrich your life, Adopt-A-Grandparent is the program for you!
