Henry Green
Foster Grandparents
 
Foster Grandparent Henry Green mentors and tutors African American boys, ages 8-13, who have been identified as needing individualized mentoring and tutoring to improve their academic performance. Through the Adopt a Role Model program, children meet daily with one or more members of a three-person team; a social worker, a volunteer teacher, and Mr. Green, who calls his assigned students “my boys.” Program coordinators say Mr. Green’s calm and supportive interaction with the children has helped reduce their hostility and that they now have a more positive outlook on their education and their future.
