We ask our volunteers to commit 3-5 hrs a week for a minimum of 1 year. This allows our facilitators to develop relationships with the support circle participants within the context of the circle.
What past participants say:
The trainers were very informed with an obvious wealth of experience coupled with a solid academic background that support the activities.
I was taught how to be a facilitator not a caregiver.
This workshop was inspirational, timely, to the point, energetic, friendly.
This training helped move my one-on-one counselling skills into a group environment.
We have several openings for volunteers for Parenting Support Circles in communities such as: Greater Victoria, including Sooke and Westshore, Nanaimo, and Parksville.
