Peer Support Group Volunteer Coordinators
The primary service provided by Willow House is the Peer Support Group Program for children, teens and families who are grieving the death of a loved one. Volunteer Facilitators work in teams with one of the children or teen groups. These groups meet once a month and are organized by age, serving children and teens from 4 to 18 years old.
All Willow House, volunteer facilitators are required to complete our 20 hour training program. This comprehensive training:
- Provides an experiential and instructive guiding framework for understanding grief & loss
- Reviews educational information and research regarding children and grief
- Provides instruction on how to be an effective peer support group facilitator
