Creating Healing Communities

The Center for Grieving Children is a nonprofit organization that provides a safe space, loving peer support, outreach, and education to grieving children, teens, families and the community with locations in Portland and Sanford. Our programs and services are all completely free-of-charge throughout southern Maine thanks to the generosity of our volunteers and contributions from the community.

Since 1997, the Center’s Intercultural Peer Support Program has collaborated with Portland Public Schools and others to serve children, teens, and their families, who have resettled locally from countries experiencing war, persecution, and natural disaster. Above and beyond losses due to the death of loved ones, they also have experienced collective loss-a community-wide devastation that destroys a sense of place, belonging, safety, and group identity.

Facilitators in this program must complete a training program and background check. They commit to one afternoon a week (four hours) from November through May. We are actively recruiting for our training which starts in the Fall of 2020 - format and timing TBD. Please visit www.cgcmaine.org for more information about the Intercultural Peer Support Program.

Please contact Beth Quinlan at volunteer@cgcmaine.org with questions and/or to be notified when we have more information about training.

We welcome queries about year-long internships.
