Make a difference in the life of a grieving child - become a mentor or support group leader!
Comfort Zone Camp is a nonprofit 501(c)3 grief organization that provides a safe and fun place for youth ages 5-25 who have experienced the death of a parent, sibling, or guardian. The free-of-charge programs include confidence-building activities and age-based support groups that break the emotional isolation grief often brings.

Check out the available volunteer roles at http://www.comfortzonecamp.org/volunteers/roles. The first step in becoming a volunteer is to attend a volunteer training. Comfort Zone’s volunteer training provides education regarding childhood grief, and prepares volunteers to take part in our camp programs.
During this training, you will meet Comfort Zone staff who will explain what to expect at our programs and how programs impact grieving children and teens. You will receive education about childhood bereavement and tips on how to be successful in whichever volunteer role you are selected to fill.
