Volunteer Opportunities

There are many ways to change the culture for grieving children and families. Sharing your time and talent with Good Grief promises to be a rewarding experience, and we always welcome new ideas! We hope you’ll get involved and join our community of over 300 passionate, kind, and inspiring volunteers who contribute to our Nights of Support, events, and facilities. You’ll quickly see that hope lives here at Good Grief.

Get Involved by filling out our online form.


Members of the community can get an introduction to our mission, programs, and facilities by attending one of our impactful open houses. If you are considering finding a way to get involved with Good Grief, whether as a volunteer, donor, or advocate in the community a tour of our center is the best way to learn more, ask questions, meet staff, and become a part of our community. Tours  are approximately 75 minutes long and offer a quick, but thorough introduction to all things Good Grief!

To sign up, visit our calendar!

Individual and group tours can also be arranged by contacting [email protected] or 908-522-1999.

NOTE: This tour is not for interested peer support program participants. Please contact one of our Family Coordinators to learn more about enrolling in our programs.


Make Good Grief a formative part of your educational experience. Good Grief interns have the opportunity to assist with the planning, development, and implementation of organizational initiatives for the Program, Development, and Marketing teams. These opportunities give the interns a hands-on experience and insight into the management of a non-profit organization and learn about programming in childhood bereavement, all within a cultivating and supportive work environment.

To apply, please email or mail a completed application to the desired location of your internship.

Volunteer Facilitators

Volunteer Facilitators make all the difference by creating a safe and caring environment where children, teens, and families can express themselves, care for each other, and rebuild their lives together. Our facilitators listen without judgment or criticism and offer hope by building an understanding community.

The comprehensive training is an engaging experience which develops skills, reframes ideas about death and bereavement, explores the complexity of the grieving process and variables that impact grief, and provides a personally transformative experience.
 100% of our 250+ facilitators agree they would “highly recommend” our training to others.
