SUPPORT GROUP FACILITATOR | 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 complete an information session, interview and tour, and a 2-day training. They must commit to a minimum of one year of service and be at least 22 years old. Both English-speaking and bilingual facilitators (English/Spanish) are needed.
HOSPITALITY VOLUNTEER | Family grief support groups at Bo’s Place begin with a shared meal. Hospitality Volunteers help create a warm environment for our families by greeting them as they arrive and arranging food and service items for the potluck-style meal. Following the meal, volunteers prepare leftover food and tidy up the kitchen. Hospitality Volunteers must be at least 18 years old (15 years old if accompanied by a legal guardian).
CAMP VOLUNTEER | Camp volunteers assist at our Camp Healing Hearts (English) and Campamento Sanando Corazones (Spanish) weekend retreats. These camps are designed to provide an opportunity for Bo’s Place families to grow together in their grief by experiencing typical camp activities. Volunteer positions include arts and crafts, cabin counselors, medical staff, bus monitors, special activity coordinators, and more. Volunteers must be at least 22 years old.
MEAL SPONSOR | Meal sponsors provide and serve a meal for grief support families or participants. These meals are a special treat and provide an alternative to the traditional potluck-style meal at Bo’s Place. Meal sponsors may also decorate the dining area for special occasions or holidays, or prepare goodie bags for the children.
PLAYGROUND MONITOR | This volunteer opportunity is for those age 18+ who would like to be a playground monitor during mealtime, before the start of our grief support groups. Help watch children who arrive early for group while they play basketball, jump rope, or create a chalk masterpiece on the sidewalk before the meal. Former support group participants are encouraged to apply, as well as those who have not previously attended a group at Bo’s Place.
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. (Both individual and group opportunities)
QUILT VOLUNTEER | 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. (Both individual and group opportunities)
BO’S BUDDIES | Bo’s Buddies is a group of volunteers and supporters who are passionate about the mission of Bo’s Place. Bo’s Buddies is integral in raising community awareness about the organization and its programs, as well as how to support grieving children and families. Individuals in this group enjoy networking and social gatherings, volunteer projects with the organization, and leadership opportunities.
