Time Commitment

A few hours per month


Josie's Place, a small nonprofit in San Francisco, is seeking volunteers to join a fun, committed, and compassionate team of volunteers to co-lead grief support groups for children, teens, or adults who have experienced a significant loss. The volunteer commitment is from 5-9PM on either the 1st and 3rd Wednesday nights of the month or the 2nd and 4th Thursday nights of the month (with the exception of Nov and Dec when they move to the 1st and 3rd Thursdays because of the holidays. Those interested in volunteering are required to take our 30-hour volunteer facilitator training to be held in mid-July - early August.

Our children's groups focus on play and creative expression to help children explore and express their grief. Our teen group leaders utilize creative expression and discussion; our parent group facilitators provide education and facilitate discussion. Because both children/teens and parents receive support in simultaneous groups, our program promotes healing and growth for the entire family.

We are looking for individuals who have had their own experience with grief, and have experience working with children or teens.

We ask for a minimum of a 1-year commitment, though longer is preferred. Many of our facilitators have been with us 2 years and longer.

Please contact us to attend an info meeting on May 22 or June 3 from 7:00 - 8:30. We are wishing to expand the diversity of our team. Men and persons of color are encouraged to apply.
