We are excited to announce that our brand new Newark location opened April 24th, 2019. We are located in the Achieve Community Charter School building at 534 Clinton Ave, Newark, NJ 07108.

Volunteer Facilitator Training

Imagine offers free grief peer support services. If you have an interest in helping children and families grow through their grief; if you care deeply about children/teens and love to listen to them; if you are able to provide a safe and trusting space for children to share their emotions; and if you can make a commitment of time and energy to work with our families, we have a place for you.

Our next Volunteer Facilitator Training will take place at our Newark location from Friday, August 23 through Monday, August 26. In this training, you will learn how to practice listening and facilitation skills, gain an understanding of group dynamics, become more informed about grief, and learn how to support youth after a loss.

If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Facilitator, please contact Jacelyn Matthews at or call 908-264-3100 x108. You can also view our flyer by clicking here.
