Volunteer Opportunity at Cork’s Place

Cork’s Place is looking for volunteers to help children toward emotional healing.

Cork’s Place offers a safe and nurturing environment where children, teens and families who have

experienced a death can share experiences, support on another and find comfort as they move through the difficult process of emotional healing.

Volunteers are needed to facilitate these grief support groups for children ages 3-17. Support groups meet every other week during the school year and average 8 hours monthly.

 

The 30-hour training is designed to give volunteer facilitators the tools needed to work with children and teens as they move through their own healing process. After training, we ask for a 10-month commitment.
