VOLUNTEER
GROUP FACILITATOR

It has been decided for the remainder of 2020 that all Erin's House programming will be virtual; therefore, our Volunteer Group Facilitator role will be taking on a new look.

 

Below you will find details and qualifications for this essential position. It is our hope that if you are willing to facilitate virtually that you would also be willing to continue serving your one-year commitment in-person at our facility once our Advisory Task Force Committee deems it safe to resume on-site peer-support groups.

Basics:

These basics apply for facilitating virtually and in-person once we resume on-site operations.​
 

  • 2 evenings per month (6:00-9:00 P.M.)
     

  • Commit to at least 1 year of volunteering
     

  • Co-facilitate small groups of children/teens
     

  • Lead activities
     

  • 22-hour training: Virtual training time will count towards this. Once we're back in-person, another round of training will take place to meet this 22-hour requirement

Dates for Online Virtual Facilitator Training

We will prepare some self-guided studies for you to do independently before meeting again virtually on September 10th. The above condensed training will prepare and equip you to join our seasoned facilitators and staff in our virtual peer-support groups that will resume this Fall.  

We will offer an additional layer of training at a later date to prepare you for in-person groups at our facility once we receive approval from our Advisory Task Force Committee to meet in-person again. We will announce those dates and times before we enter the in-person stage of programming.
