KidWorks – Volunteer

Facilitators

teensOur KidWorks support groups for children and their parents are led by volunteer facilitators. Our volunteers come from all walks of life – counselors, nurses, teachers, church members. You don’t have to have any professional licenses or training to apply to be a volunteer. All new volunteer facilitators are fully trained by our staff, will shadow facilitators and be partnered with experienced facilitators when assigned to a group.

When is the next new facilitator training?

Contact our program coordinator Paola Thompson for information on the next training.
