VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME
Support Group Facilitators
Are you ready to make a difference in the life of a grieving child or teen? Our volunteers are one of our greatest resources! Volunteers help facilitate all grief support groups at our center. Volunteer Facilitators work with children in one of our children’s groups depending on need and availability. Volunteer Facilitators work under the direction of our Program Director who plans the programs, and several facilitators are assigned to each group.
All facilitators go through an intense 35 hour training before being placed in a support group.
Volunteer facilitators are asked to make a commitment of one year to the program.
A background check is done on each volunteer to ensure the safety our children, families and volunteers.
