To Volunteer in Hospice
Hospice volunteers are adults of all ages and from all walks of life in our community who wish to support those who are living with a terminal illness. They are part of the VNA's dedicated Hospice team, joining together with professional staff to offer comprehensive care to those in need. Hospice volunteer trainings are offered throughout the year in eleven-week sessions, usually in the spring and fall.
For more information, please contact Erica Marks or Daniel Wilds in the Hospice Volunteer Office at 860-4411. Or email the Volunteer Office at voloffREMOVETHISBEFORESENDING@vnacares.org.

Vermont Respite House volunteers support House staff, residents and their families by preparing and serving meals, assisting with light office work, answering phone calls, and helping out at special events. Assistance with weekend breakfast and lunch shifts is particularly needed.

To Volunteer in VNA Family Room
Family Room volunteers are students and community members who enjoy young children and care about the well-being of families in our community. Volunteers primarily spend time with children, promoting language, supporting children’s play and fostering their healthy emotional development. Volunteers have the opportunity to learn about children’s development and about building strong, diverse communities.
To Volunteer at Camp Knock Knock
Volunteers are needed for all aspects of our annual family bereavement camp, including recreational activities, arts and crafts, setup and cleanup, facilitating grief workshops, and assisting with grief workshops. Mandatory volunteer training takes place every year, approximately one month prior to Camp. The training session includes teambuilding exercises, discussions of essential skills, an overview of the stages of childhood grief and other significant activities. This year's mandatory volunteer training will occur on Saturday, May 4. Camp Knock Knock 2013 will take place on May 31, June 1 and 2 at YMCA Camp Abnaki.
Please, call our volunteer hotline for more information at 802-860-4499 ext. 6633.
