Volunteer Facilitators are essential for the success of our Parent, Grandparent and Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Support Circles. They provide a secure and regular space for parents and grandparents to express feelings and share the joys and challenges of raising children. This important volunteer position requires successful completion of the application and screening process, 20 hours of Initial Facilitator Training; attendance at additional skill-building workshops and seminars; participation in monthly or bi-monthly facilitator or Steering Committee meetings and the responsibility of facilitating an ongoing Support Circle. We look for a one year commitment of 5 hours or less per week, which includes facilitating a regular (weekly, biweekly or monthly) 2 hour Circle meeting, contacting new and ongoing members, promoting the Circle; attending facilitator meetings and taking care of other organizational and reporting details. Note: Applicants must undergo a Criminal Record Check. Apply to become a Volunteer Facilitator!
