2017 Volunteer Training – Opportunity to Serve

volunteering-at-kara

Our services are provided primarily by trained volunteers who have experience in healing from their own personal loss. With the aid of professional staff and ongoing training, Kara’s peer support volunteers provide crucial service to those grieving in our community.  Here’s your chance to join our incredible team of over 150 volunteers who serve Kara’s mission annually and bring care, compassion and connection to the bereaved. Individuals with experience of suicide loss, sibling loss, diverse backgrounds, bilingual speakers, and men are especially needed.

Volunteers are required to:

  • Attend ONE informational meeting and ALL of the primary training dates;
  • Upon acceptance into the volunteer corps, commit to at least one year of service, and;
  • Attend regular In-Service Training sessions throughout the year

Informational Meetings (One Required)
