“CfR National has defined the volunteer roles. The WA teams embrace these roles and take them many steps further. Each volunteer in her own way manifests the CfR mission throughout a retreat. By anticipating participant’s needs, possible desires or barriers, or by just being present, our volunteers create a culture of care and compassion. Actions as small as passing a box of tissues, carrying a suitcase, running to get replacement equipment, or walking at the participant’s pace and acknowledging their effort, also express this culture of care. Our CfR-WA volunteers “have each other’s back” and do whatever it takes. Roles become blurred as each supports the other to ensure our retreats are a success.” – Jane Lanning, Washington Program Coordinator.
