Good Grief of Northwest Ohio is seeking compassionate, dependable volunteers this fall to assist the organization with its operational needs. Volunteer facilitators will provide peer support groups where children of all ages are encouraged to express their thoughts and feelings through music, play, art, journal writing, and more as they work through emotional situations.

One in seven Americans, by age twenty, will lose a parent or sibling – that translates into more than 15,000 grieving Northwest Ohio children, teens and young adults.

Facilitators are trained, teamed up with more experienced facilitators, and supported by Good Grief’s staff. Facilitator training will take place in August.

To learn more about volunteer opportunities, visit www.goodgrief.org or call 419-360-4939.
