The Life Group LA is looking for English and Spanish Speaking Support Group Faciliators

Please welcome the Life Group of Los Angeles, California, to the ICP forum. I have been trying to find a way to throw some support their way for months now, and am honored to offer this press release for your review. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact them at the email address provided.

From the Life Group LA (TLGLA)

As our programs grow and the need to serve our community grows even
larger, TLGLA is searching for English Speaking, AND Bilingual Spanish
Speaking Volunteers!

In 2008 we will be reviving the much needed and popular program, "VIDAS
POSITIVAS", the POZ Life Weekend Seminar done entirely in Spanish!

November Support Group Facilitator Training!!

TLGLA is developing an excellent reputation in the Southern California
area for the highest quality of trained volunteers.

We invite and encourage you to become one of them, and become part of our
family of compassionate caregivers.

The training requires a commitment of three full days (no exception to
this) to receive your certificate of completion, and our next training
will be on Saturday and Sunday, November 3rd and 4th and resumes Saturday
November 10th in the Los Angeles area.

By attending our training you will enhance your skills in:

. Model of Compassionate Presence
. Active Listening
. Giving and Receiving Constructive Feedback
. Acknowledging and Embracing Diversity
. Cultural Sensitivity
. Crisis Management
. Identifying hidden agendas
. Role Plays
. Recognizing Substance Abuse
. Establishing Rapport
. Non-verbal Communication,
. Setting appropriate Boundaries, and much more!

You may have previously attended one of our POZ Life Weekend Seminars,
been at one of our fundraisers or helped out on our Tech Team. If you are
ready to give more, or give back to your community, being trained on how
to facilitate an emotional support group might be your next experience
with us!

Even if you don't have the time to take on the commitment of a regular,
weekly support group, our trained facilitators also facilitate the support
groups at our POZ Life Weekend Seminars and help in other capacities that
occur less frequently, like our fundraising team, outreach team, volunteer
development and organizational development!

Think about it! When you decide this may perhaps be the next experience in
your volunteer life, email us for an application, or visit our website to download it!

Here's a chance to learn or enhance your skills, and share the gifts you
have within yourself to give with others!
