Becoming a Facilitator
VOA is always looking for volunteer First Responders, either active-duty or retired, to be trained as VOA|ReST Facilitators.
After your application has been received, you will have an interview and receive detailed information about the program and the online platform.
Remote training for new Facilitators takes approximately 10 hours and includes an overview of the technology, instruction on the peer group facilitation model, practice facilitation with a trainer, and co-facilitation of at least two actual VOA|ReST 4 First Responder group meetings. Once training is complete, volunteers should be available to Facilitate at least two meetings per month.
