Volunteer Facilitators

Volunteer Facilitators make all the difference by creating a safe and caring environment where children, teens, and families can express themselves, care for each other, and rebuild their lives together. Our facilitators listen without judgment or criticism and offer hope by building an understanding community.

The comprehensive training is an engaging experience which develops skills, reframes ideas about death and bereavement, explores the complexity of the grieving process and variables that impact grief, and provides a personally transformative experience.
 100% of our 250+ facilitators agree they would “highly recommend” our training to others.
