Volunteers guide peer support groups for children who have experienced the loss of someone they love. They work through activities intended to help the children express their emotions, tell their stories and be themselves. Professional grief support counselors train the volunteers as they begin their service and are actively involved each session providing encouragement and support every step of the way.
