"Voices Of Children” Volunteer Project


RSS XML FeedBackground Active Oct 30, 2006 to Nov 15, 2006

This volunteer opportunity requires a commitment to eight weekly therapeutic groups for two hours each; an interest in learning about group work with children; lots of patience – and a sense of humor. Applicants must like working with children, and making a difference in the life of a child. Applicants will support the work of developing coping skills for children who have experienced a high level of stress.

It’s going to be a fun group for the kids – lots of activities – and the final night/late afternoon of the group we will invite parents. It’s not a “talking therapy” group, but we hope will be equally powerful in helping kids share/learn. Kids are going to be taught stress reduction techniques; relaxation exercises; mindful breathing; as well as each of the kids in the groups will create something over the course of the group. Training will be provided for those selected for this project.

This opportunity is sponsored by: Child & Family Services Division, Arlington County DHS
