As a volunteer grief worker, you will have access to the support of the other volunteer grief workers in your pod, your pod facilitator, and the network at large.
We do not supervise or extensively train volunteers. Volunteers are onboarded into the network through a short training, and are given a sense of our values, orientation, purpose, and the legal bounds of the support they can offer. They are connected to and supported by each other in pods of 10 volunteer peers and can opt-in to more support if they like. We are operating on a mutual aid model; we connect individuals who need supportive listening to those who’ve said they can provide it.
Please note: even the volunteers that are licensed therapists are not offering “therapy” in their work through the network; they are offering short-term, supportive listening for young adults in need.
