Are you a senior 55 or older with a lifetime of experience to share? Would you like to give back to other seniors and learn how to age gracefully yourself?
The Senior Peer Counseling program of Konocti Senior Services Inc. is accepting applications for the Fall Volunteer Training for this enriching opportunity to help seniors talk through a discouraging time, access services, cope with losses and adapt to the challenges of older age.
Volunteers will share their experiences with other inspirational volunteers, engage in lively discussions, and receive weekly training in the gifts and challenges of aging.
Volunteers will learn skills such as compassionate listening, strategic coping, and clear communicating. You will learn the secrets of increasing peace of mind, reducing stress, recovering from a loss, building healthy relationships and exploring the spiritual advantages of later life.
As a volunteer, you will spend a total of about four hours a week with clients and attending a group supervision session in Lakeport or Clearlake.
They are now accepting a limited number of applications for volunteers throughout Lake County for this free training facilitated by licensed psychotherapist Kim Baughan Young MFT, clinical consultant, which includes experiential practice, movie clips, lively group discussion and even free lunches.
The training will be held on three successive Fridays beginning Oct. 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Konocti Senior Support’s Senior Peer Counseling program has helped hundreds of Lake County seniors and is rapidly expanding, so please call Kim Baughan Young MFT at Konocti Senior Services Inc. now for your application at 707-995-1417.
