We value having a diverse group of volunteers related to experiences with grief as well as gender, age, race/ethnicity, and education. Although many who apply go on to become active volunteers, occasionally, it turns out that applicants are not a good fit for our program.
We offer volunteer training twice a year. Due to the nature of the subject, we perform background checks and a drug screening before we allow volunteers to begin training. We also base decisions on a number of factors including: group needs, availability, and best fit for the program.

When I look at our kids, even as they talk or do grief work, I can see their hearts crying in their eyes. I just want to put a Bandaid on their hearts and tell them everything will be okay. And by volunteering, I feel like I get to do that through my actions and words.

I noticed a common theme among the children; they all just wanted to be heard, to be a part of something. They wanted someone to listen to their story and find out that they are indeed, not alone.
