Event Support Volunteers are community ambassadors. They deliver heartfelt, enthusiastic presentations on Hospice of Santa Cruz County (HSCC) programs and services at community engagements. They also represent HSCC at public events and are available to help answer questions about hospice care, grief support, and advance healthcare planning. With additional training, some volunteers choose to discuss advance healthcare planning and help community members complete Advance Healthcare Directives.
All Event Support Volunteers participate in a comprehensive training that provides the skills and tools needed to speak about Hospice services. Following the training, volunteers are asked to make the following commitment:
- Serve as a Volunteer for a minimum of one year
- Represent the agency at a minimum of four events per year
- Generate at least two speaking engagements drawing from your own circle of contacts
- Attend two support/update meetings annually
