HomeAgain VR Logo

HomeAgain VR is a nonprofit, volunteer-driven community that offers human connection through shared virtual experiences. Our platform allows participants and volunteers to chat with one another while exploring the world, visiting museums, seeing wildlife, and more. We are a channel for uplifting and positive social interactions, which we believe can improve the health, wisdom, and happiness of people everywhere. Accessibility and inclusiveness are at the core of our mission, and we strive to make our program easy to use for people of all ages, income levels, and physical abilities. Many of our current customers are residents of assisted living communities.

We are seeking a volunteer who will serve as a session facilitator, a necessary role for making our volunteers and users feel supported and valued.

Since our virtual sessions are one-on-one, scheduled appointments, it is essential that we respect the time of everyone involved. The facilitator's role is to ensure that the sessions happen on time as scheduled and to provide logistical support to our users. This will include:

  • Following up with volunteers and users who don't show up for their sessions
  • Finding a backup volunteer if the scheduled volunteer cancels at the last minute
  • Answering questions about scheduling
  • Offering basic help if someone is having trouble connecting to our platform

We are an early-stage startup, so your work as a session facilitator will likely shape our processes moving forward. We are always looking for new ideas and suggestions for streamlining our program to reach more people while requiring less manual work. If you are interested in playing this key role in pioneering our program, please let us know!
