At select times of the year a three week training program is offered for people who would like to become Bereavement Volunteers for Hospice Quinte.
In order to take the class a candidate must complete a Volunteer Application Form and undergo a screening process and formal interview. Successful candidates will then be able to attend classes. In order to become a Hospice Quinte Bereavement Volunteer, volunteers must successfully assist in one 8-week Grief Toolbox Support Group under the supervision of Hospice Quinte staff.
Hospice Quinte Bereavement Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and not have experienced a significant loss (such as death, divorce, or loss of job or home) within the last year.
