HAND Volunteer Training
Saturday, May 16, 2020
9 a.m. – 3 p.m. in San Mateo
Mills Health Center
100 South San Mateo Drive
San Mateo, CA 94401
HAND’s volunteer training is for parents, family and friends interested in supporting HAND by volunteering in various ways including:
- facilitating meetings*
- offering peer support to parents with a recent loss
- serving on our Board of Directors
- doing outreach to local hospitals and healthcare providers
- managing our website (using WordPress)
- providing administrative support
The training is free and lunch will be provided.
The morning session (9:00-11:30) will be a general orientation for all new volunteers.
The afternoon session (12:00-3:00) will cover peer support and facilitating meetings.
New volunteers wanting to provide peer support, facilitate meetings, or make presentations should attend the whole training. Those interested only in non-direct support activities may just come to the morning session.
*Note that HAND requires that parents wait at least one year after their loss and attend support group meetings consistently before beginning the process of training to be a facilitator (exceptions may be considered for certain circumstances).
Registration is required by May 2, 2020.
