Billy's Place

Make a Difference. Volunteer at Billy's Place.

FACILITATOR

Facilitators walk alongside grieving children, teens, or adults. Volunteers serve with the “littles,” “middles,” “teens,” or “adults,” providing families a safe environment during support group nights in a small group setting. 

All volunteers attend a comprehensive training designed to help prepare them for the year ahead. You will learn many tools to help not only our families, but also yourself in this journey.  Consistency in volunteers is very important to Billy’s Place and the families we serve. Continuing education of three hours per year is required to further enhance your skills. 


BOARD OF DIRECTORS
We have a slot open for one (1) Board Member.


Like all non-profit organizations, a Board of Director governs Billy's Place. Our board is a passionate, diverse group of leaders with backgrounds ranging from technology to financial services to education. We all have one common mission - to work as a team to serve the families of Billy's Place. 


The board meets monthly and is highly involved in the development and growth of the organization, taking ownership of key results. 


While day-to-day operations are led by the Billy's Place Executive Director (ED), the Board relationship with the Executive Director is a partnership, and the appropriate involvement of the Board is both critical and expected. Specific Board Member responsibilities include:

  • Contributing to an annual performance evaluation of the Executive Director
  • Assisting the ED and board chair in identifying and recruiting other Board Members
  • Partnering with the ED and other board members to ensure that board resolutions are carried forward 
  • Serving on committees or tasks forces and taking on special assignments 
  • Representing Billy's Place to stakeholders; acting as an ambassador for the organization
  • Ensuring our commitment to a diverse board and staff that reflects the communities we serve
