Volunteers are needed to facilitate peer support groups for children age 3-18 and their parents who are grieving a loss due to death, or who are living with a family member with a serious life-altering physical illness.
Volunteers come from all walks of life and need no special background other than a willingness to listen, a heart inclined to serve, and the ability to be with children and adults in pain without trying to fix, solve or give advice. No prior experience is necessary. Volunteers must be 21 years or older.
"I am thankful to have been able to participate in this most empowering experience of my life. I know I am a stronger person for having completed this. Imagine is a wonderful, safe place making this a better world for those coping with loss," said new Volunteer Facilitator, Joanne Warin of New Providence.
The next Imagine Facilitator Training is September 25-28, 2015 in Westfield from 9 AM – 5 PM each day.
