There are many ways you can volunteer to help build a community of hope!
GrieveWell seeks Peer Counselors who are interested in working one-on-one with individuals in grief, as well as Ambassadors to represent GrieveWell in the community.
Become a Peer Counselor
We are always searching for kind individuals who have traveled their own grief journeys and feel acclimated to their losses.
GrieveWell welcomes volunteers who would like to support others through the grief process. We welcome all loss types, but are especially in need of peer support volunteers in the following areas: Spouse Loss, LGBT and Heterosexual Partner Loss, Sibling Loss, Child Loss, Suicide Loss, and Pet Loss.
Our next Peer Counselor training workshop will be held November 8 (6-9pm) and November 10 (9am-4pm). Applications must be received no later than October 29 to be considered for that workshop.
Basic Requirements to Serve as a Peer Counselor:
- Commit to being a volunteer for a minimum of one year
- Agree to meet with at least one client during that time
- Participate in the 10-hour initial training workshop
- Attend monthly continuing education/case review meetings
- Be 18 years or older
- Agree to a background check
All GrieveWell Peer Counselors must complete an application and in-person interview process prior to training. If you are interested in becoming a GrieveWell Peer Counselor, please complete the application below. Once your application is reviewed, a member of our staff will be in touch to schedule an in-person interview. There is a $25 workshop fee to cover food and materials, which will be collected after your interview if you are accepted into the training. (If you want to become a Peer Counselor but cannot afford this fee, please email Larrea@grievewell.com for sponsorship opportunities).
