Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are needed to facilitate the following activities:

  • Safe People (12 Weeks)

Based on the book by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend. Participants learn the difference between safe and unsafe, good influence and bad influence, persons in their lives.

  • Taking Responsibility (in a finger pointing world) (12 Weeks)

A course designed to help participants identify their thinking errors and their need to take responsibility for their actions, and to be able to change their thoughts in order for them to become better citizens in society.

  • Spiritual Literacy (12 Weeks)

Through a video series, participants get in touch with the spiritual in life, in nature, and in their surroundings. Through deeply-reflective topics, they are invited to engage-in personal introspection and to feel increased compassion for and awareness of others and of all things around themselves in the world.

  • Breaking the Cycle (6 months or as determined by the program)

A character-based, four-phase course that focuses on the participants’ past substance abuse, thinking errors and behaviors. Challenges distorted beliefs and harmful self-defeating behaviors, and teaches how to conduct a rational self-analysis and develop four core life skills to aid in reconstruction of the future through positive behavior change.
