Spotlight: Volunteer Opportunities

Caring Friends Bereavement Group Co-Facilitator: We are looking for someone to join the drop-in grief group, as a co-facilitator. The group meets the 2nd Thursday of each month and runs from 7-8:30p.m. The volunteer will take leadership in facilitating group discussions. This informal group is for people who are new or still in grief and who are searching for support with the grieving process.  Participants are welcome to join the group at any stage in their grief and stay in the group for as long as they would like.  Experience with grief is an asset.  Facilitation experience especially with grief is preferred.  Training is offered to volunteers as it is available. Please connect with The Volunteer Centre at 780-963-8603 or for more information.

Trainer- Living the Dementia Journey: We are looking for a volunteer that would like to become a trainer for the Living the Dementia Journey program. This would be a long term volunteer position but with chunks of time required (sporadic commitment times). If you have a passion for facilitation, teaching and connecting with care partners that are supporting people living with dementia and can attend 4 virtual training sessions please contact the Volunteer Centre at 780-963-8603 or
