How You Can Volunteer

Support Group Facilitator (groups across Canada, positions periodically available)

The Support Group Facilitator directs the process of the meetings, helps the group discuss an issue, make a decision, or solve a problem. The Facilitator also selects appropriate topics for discussion and/or arranges for a guest speaker and may provide assistance to group members looking for community resources.

Support Group Convenor (groups across Canada, positions periodically available)

The Support Group Convenor calls group members monthly to remind them of upcoming meetings, provides Brain Tumour Foundation of Canada with updated membership listings and ensures the meeting room is set up and refreshments are made available.
