Adult Support Group (Bereavement) Facilitator
10 people are interested
We are seeking volunteers to serve as facilitators for bereavement groups! CaringMatters provides adult support groups that allow participants to meet others who are also grieving, share their stories, and learn from one another. Specialized groups include adult child loss, parents loss, sibling or friend loss, spousal loss, and suicide loss. Additional groups are formed based on community need. Bereavement facilitators for our adult support groups complete both the Volunteer Training and Adult Bereavement Training. The Adult Bereavement Training is offered on a Saturday and Monday evening to support the working volunteer. After completing both trainings, they are assigned in two-person teams to co-facilitate 1½-hours-long meetings. The frequency of meetings varies. Some groups meet during the day, but most meet on weeknights from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. All volunteers must go through our basic three-day volunteer training and then the short additional adult bereavement training. Volunteers must complete a background check.
We'll work with your schedule.
