Humanitas Zaanstreek-Waterland is part of the Humanitas Association, one of the largest volunteer organizations in the Netherlands.

Our principles are based on our humanistic values: ● Equality: Our volunteers stand next to the participant, never above them. ● Own control: Our volunteers do not take control, but help people take control of their own lives again. ● Responsibility: You are not only responsible for yourself, but also for others. ● Demand-oriented: We are open to new themes and respond to what is in demand.

Supervisors of the Mourning Zaanstreek group

Humanitas

As a volunteer supervisor of our peer group, you have an affinity and/or experience with grief and loss and preferably experience with group work. Together with another supervisor, you facilitate that participants can exchange experiences with each other about their loss in a safe setting. The loss of a loved one is extremely devastating. The shared future has suddenly disappeared. In the grief peer group there is room for the emotional and practical sides of the grieving process. You, as a volunteer, ensure that this takes place. You give everyone space for their stories and feelings. The encounters focus on feelings such as: saying goodbye, emotions, reactions from the environment, physical complaints and personal experiences. Mutual recognition provides support: no one stands alone. A group consists of five to eight fellow sufferers and meets eight times over a few months. You are one of the two volunteers who guide the group. There is a coordinator for individual guidance if necessary. What do we ask of you? Affinity with the principles of Humanitas You can listen well and empathize with others You have life experience You can work well together and provide structure Conduct introductory conversations with participants Supervise seven weekly meetings and a return meeting, including preparation and debriefings with your co-supervisor A Declaration of Good Conduct (paid for by Humanitas) You commit to the peer group for at least a year What do we offer you? Grateful work A good basic training before you get started (a few half days) Guidance and, if necessary, intervision meetings Any expenses will be reimbursed A nice team of fellow volunteers Register or would you like to know more first? Can you guide a peer group? And can you help people who have lost a loved one to continue living with the loss? Then we are looking for you! Your experience and commitment are of great importance and very welcome. Send a message before February 15, 2024
