We want to make sure you have the support and tools you need to be confident as you volunteer as a visiting friend for Friend to Friend America. We provide ample opportunity for this training to be completed during your first year of volunteering as our training course is provided quarterly. This training is free of charge and consists of three classes:
– Sensitivity — Gain empathy for what it feels like to be older and less mobile
– Required Reporting — Understanding when and how to say something
– Visiting Suggestions and Ongoing Support — Variable topics to enhance visits
The training events give you a chance to connect with other individuals that, ed like you, pills have a heart to serve and want to make a difference in the lives of seniors in our community. Complimentary refreshments are provided and we start and end on time* to ensure you still have most of your Saturday morning free. If you have any questions about the training events please contact us.
* Trainings begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. with check-in and sharing time. The speaker will begin at 10:00am. Trainings will conclude at 11:00 a.m. sharp. We appreciate and respect your gift of time.
**TRIPLE Play trainings will offer all three courses in one 90 minute session. Come for all or a part based on what you need to complete your required training.
Classes do not need to be taken in order or all in one-quarter but we encourage volunteers to mark their calendars and plan on attending future events. Trainings will be located in the greater Puget Sound area on the Saturday’s listed below:
