If you have been inspired by your experiences related to dying, death and grief and you want to share what you have learned with other people, consider teaching a class for your community.

Death educators are needed for the general public to help people learn about advance directives, hospice and palliative care, end-of-life doula care, support for caregivers, funeral and burial options, grief, and more. On this page you can find out more about why and how you should consider teaching a community class.

If you've been wanting to teach a class in your community about end-of-life issues but haven't done it yet, this free guide can help you get started and get your class going this year!
