AmeriCorps Seniors

Pepperdine GSEP Foster Grandparent Program

The purpose of the Foster Grandparent Program is to provide children and older adults a chance to grow together through one-on-one daily attention that Foster Grandparents provide to help young people grow, gain confidence, and become more full and productive members of society.

Our vision for the 2021-2022 program year is Servant Heart. Our vision is informed by 1 Peter 4:10, which encourages that: "Each of [us] should use whatever gifts [we] have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms."


Previously known as the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS)

AmeriCorps is a network of national service programs, made up of three primary programs that each take a different approach to improving lives and fostering civic engagement. Members commit their time to address critical community needs like increasing academic achievement, mentoring youth, fighting poverty, sustaining national parks, preparing for disasters, and more.

Mission Statement

The mission of AmeriCorps NCCC is to strengthen communities and develop leaders through direct, team-based direct national and community service. For more information, visit https://americorps.gov/.
