The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Playful and compassionate volunteers needed to help children living with serious illness and/or grief and loss in their families. We are Circle of Care, a program of East Bay Agency for Children in Oakland. Learn to facilitate peer support groups for children, teens, toddlers or adults. We create activities using art, music, play, theater and games for children to express their feelings and develop the skills needed to understand their experience and share memories of loved ones who are ill or have died.
Mandatory training modules held every August and January.
