Volunteer Writing Group Facilitator
Imagine a job where you get to converse with people, and listen to their stories... It's a reality
when you're a "Best Day of My Life...So Far" facilitator for SASI - Services for Adults Staying In Their Homes
Volunteers are needed to facilitate weekly meetings of the SASI’s “Best Day” writing group for
seniors. As the group leader, you will ensure that meetings begin and end on time, that all
participants are engaged at their comfort level and their writings are collected for transcription
and blog posting. No writing or editing experience is needed; this is not an instructional writing
group. Participants write on topics of their own choosing and share their stories with the group.
There is no critique or formal analysis, just a lot of laughter and sometimes tears if it's a sad
story. Volunteers should be good listeners and have a genuine interest in hearing other
people’s stories and thoughts.
The Best Day of My Life, So Far writing group is part of a national program, for more
