The loss of a loved one is difficult for everyone, but coping can be especially difficult for children and teens. Since 2012, the nonprofit Good Grief of Northwest Ohio has responded to these specific needs by providing peer support groups for children, teens and young adults, ages 4-24, who are grieving the loss of a friend or family member.

To help support this important organization, Good Grief is looking for compassionate volunteers to provide a safe environment for peer support groups. Peer groups divided by age and led by trained facilitators, encourage participants to express their thoughts and feelings through music, play, art, journaling, and other creative activities.

If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact Shanon Bostater at 419-360-4939 or email at shanon@goodgriefnwo.org , web: goodgriefnwo.org
