Volunteers are the heart and soul of FAVOR Greenville.
Many of our recovery support programs are volunteer-based and offer people in recovery a way to give back, strengthen their own recovery, and support others who are seeking recovery. For more information on volunteering, please contact: FAVOR Greenville at 864-385-7757.
The lifeblood of our Center is the commitment of trained volunteers, who are in individual and/or family recovery, to staff our programs and assure our Center is always a welcoming place for participants.
Based on successful peer-based recovery center models around the country, FAVOR Greenville Center offers a variety of recovery support programs provided by trained and supervised volunteers. Examples include Recovery Coaching, Outreach Meetings Leaders, Administration, Public Relations and Telephone Recovery Support.
Volunteer Orientation and Training
All FAVOR Greenville volunteers are required to complete a volunteer orientation and training session. Volunteers are trained for various jobs: to provide coverage in our reception area and for the main phone lines; to assist with community-based education projects such as displays at health fairs and other local events; to accompany staff to various treatment centers to provide a warm connection to FAVOR services; and to develop resource materials and manuals with current information on treatment, recovery housing, employment, counseling, and mutual support meetings.
Recovery Coach Training Program
We offer a 40-hour Recovery Coach training program three times a year to anyone who has achieved at least one year in recovery. Every Wednesday evening the Recovery Coaches meet with the executive director for two to three hours of on-going supervision and continuing education.
Upcoming Recovery Coach Training Programs will be held Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5pm, the week of June 5-9 and the week of October 9-13. For more information, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
