Interested in becoming a Cork’s Place Facilitator?
Join us for the Cork’s Place Volunteer Informational to learn more about Cork’s Place and how to get involved.
About Volunteering with Cork’s Place:
Cork’s Place offers a safe and nurturing environment where children, teens and families who have experienced a death can share experiences, support one 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 experiential 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.
Characteristics of an Effective Group Facilitator:
Teachable, passionate about helping children, nonjudgmental, tolerant of long silences or loud noises, and able to be physically active. Cork’s Place Volunteer Facilitators do not teach, give advice, encourage or praise.
