Our grief support groups for kids, teens, young adults, and their caregivers are facilitated by a team of volunteers who have undergone our 30 hours of bereavement training and have made a minimum one-year commitment to Josie's Place. We are always looking for folks who have experience working with children and/or teens, experience with death and grief, and/or sincere interest in this work to join our facilitation team based in San Francisco.
We wish to increase the diversity of our team. Men and people of color are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be willing to make a minimum of a one-year commitment to Josie's Place, and longer is desired.
We are also looking for Associate MFTs or recent Masters in Counseling graduates to co-facilitate our school-based groups that meet weekly for 8 weeks during the school day.
We are excited to announce the dates for our next facilitator training in Winter 2024! Our training will be in-person and onsite at our location in the Inner Sunset to support facilitators in developing competence to do grief support work in our youth grief support groups. Every volunteer facilitator is required to attend each day of the training. Proof of vaccination is required to attend.
We will be holding information sessions about our upcoming training via Zoom from 7-8:30 pm on the following evenings:
After attending an information session, folks will be sent an application to complete by December 15th.
The training fee is $200 for those who wish to become volunteer facilitators, and $500 for community members taking the training for professional development. Financial assistance is available.
If you are interested in participating in our next training or if you have any questions about our training, please complete our interest form!
