Tu Nidito Looking for Compassionate Volunteers

| December 23, 2013

Volunteers are the heart of Tu Nidito Children and Family Services. We have more than 150 dedicated people who volunteer their time and we would love for you to join our team! We are currently in need of satellite (short term) and bilingual facilitators.

Tu Nidito is hosting a new grief support group in South Tucson, in partnership with the Boys and Girls Club, to serve greater Tucson’s youth. The time commitment is every Wednesday evening from 5:15 pm to 7:30 pm, starting on February 19 through April 16th, 2014. This is a 9-week session held at the Holmes Tuttle Clubhouse. Support Group Volunteers facilitate peer support groups for children, teens whose lives have been impacted by a death or multiple losses. You will work with an assigned age group: middles (ages 7-12), and teens (ages 13-17) to provide comfort and support through structured talking circle questions and activities.

Tu Nidito also provides ongoing support groups at our main office that meet twice a month from5:45-9:00PM, serving children and their families who have experienced a serious illness or death of a loved one. We are in great need of several Spanish-speaking adult group facilitators! Adult Support Group Volunteers facilitate peer support groups for adults whose children’s lives have been impacted by a death or serious medical condition. You will provide comfort and support through structured talking circle questions.

Applicants should be at least 18 years old and able to pass a background check. You will meet with the volunteer coordinator to fill out all required paperwork and attend volunteer training before the session begins, which will arm you with the skills and tools necessary to facilitate these groups. If you are a good listener and wish to support disadvantaged youth in our community, we can definitely use your talents!

If you or anyone you know are interested, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at erica@tunidito.org or 520-322-9155 for more information. You may also fill out an application online at http://tunidito.org/volunteer/volunteer-application.

Thank you!
