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.
Circle of Care is seeking facilitators for our grief and illness peer support group program. After attending an intensive 24 hour training, volunteers will have the unique opportunity to co-lead twice monthly (either Wed. or Thurs. evenning) peer support groups. The whole family attends group on the same evenning. Children meet in groups by age and adults meet in seperate groups. Adult facilitators have the opportunity to work with bereaved parents/caretakers, caretakers of an ill family member or adults living with illness. For over 33 years, volunteers have been the foundation for Circle of Care; this year alone, 40 volunteers generously contributed over 3,500 hours of their time helping children and families through their healing journey.
Mandatory training modules take place in both August and January on 2 weekend days, and 2 weekday evenings. For more information and application, email us at email@example.com
