ORGANIZATION: The Center for Grieving Children

  • 50 people are interested

Our volunteer facilitators make a four hour, weekly commitment to co-lead a small group of children, teens, young adults or adults. All facilitators must complete an intense 35-hour training and complete a background check before being placed in a support group. Peer support groups meet weekday evenings.

The Center’s peer support groups are moving back to in-person in the fall and we will add a night of service which will remain online. We invite you to attend one of our Volunteer Info Sessions where you can learn more about being a facilitator and the process to become one. We are currently filling our September 2022 training class which will be a combination on online and in-person in Portland.

In addition to this rewarding work, the Center will have other volunteer opportunities that support Center families and the other services provided to the community, though these are limited right now given that the office is closed and the staff is working remotely. These opportunities will increase in the fall as we return to the office.

Contact Beth Quinlan at for Info Session dates and with questions.

We welcome queries about year-long internships (2023-2024) for social work students starting in February of 2023.
