Bo’s Place Volunteer Facilitators are at the heart of what we do. Under the direction of Bo’s Place clinicians, these volunteers lead grief support groups for children, families and adults. Volunteer Facilitators attend a Volunteer Information Session, followed by a 28+ hour training. They must commit to a minimum of one year service and be at least 22 years old. Both English speaking and bilingual facilitators (English/Spanish) are needed.
Bo’s Place grief support groups begin with a shared meal. Kitchen Volunteers help set up a buffet style meal which is most often potluck. Following the meal, volunteers prepare leftover food for families to take home and tidy the kitchen. Kitchen Volunteers must be at least 15 years old.
Special Project Volunteer
Special Project Volunteers provide support to Bo’s Place in a variety of ways including assistance with fundraising efforts, help at special events, activity or material preparation, and administrative and clerical support.
Bo’s Place Memory Quilts allow grief support group members to commemorate their loved one. Decorated quilt squares are assembled by volunteer quilters and the resulting quilts are displayed on the walls throughout Bo’s Place as a colorful and touching memorial to those who have died.
Bo’s Place welcomes individuals or groups of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering at Bo’s Place, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 713.942.8339 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
