Which volunteer role(s) are you interested in? *
The Austin Center for Grief & Loss requires Support Group Facilitators to attend a training to gain the skills used in this role. This is a clinician-led Volunteer Facilitator that will be held virtually. We ask that prospective volunteer facilitators attend all the training dates. The cost to attend this training is $25.  Payment for the training is expected prior to the first training session. All funds are donated to Austin Grief's support group programming to continue our mission.
The Support Group Facilitator role is a high level volunteer position in which group members depend on your consistent presence. We ask that volunteers commit to at least one year of service, give advance notice of absences, and miss no more than four sessions per year. Support groups meet twice a month, and in-school support groups meet weekly for 10 weeks. Can you commit to these attendance requirements? *
In addition to the training, we ask volunteer facilitators to be a substitute for other facilitators when needed. Can you commit to substituting for other facilitators?
What special skills that you bring to The Austin Center for Grief & Loss? *
How did you learn of The Austin Center for Grief & Loss? *
The Austin Center for Grief & Loss work focuses on grief, bereavement, and non-death loss. Because of this our volunteers, particularly our group co-facilitators, must be aware of their own loss history and how it may impact their work. The way our organization conceptualizes loss includes loss of a loved one, loss of a relationship, loss of a job, loss of a pet, and any other event in your life that you would consider to be a loss.
Please provide the name and email address of 1-3 references. *
