Crisis Hotline & Other Positions:
Volunteer Training

  • Thurs, April 12:  6-8pm
  • Sat, April 14: Noon-6pm
  • Tues, April 17:  6-9pm
  • Thurs, April 19:  6-9pm
  • Sat, April 21:  Noon-6pm

Volunteers commit to all 5 trainings; if they miss one, it can be made up at another time. Volunteers complete 30 hours of training. 20 hours in the classroom; 10 hours can be related reading, videos, etc. online on their own time.

Our need for volunteers is great at this time.  They do not have to commit to a minimum amount of hours per month, and they do not have to commit to a regular schedule.

One of the benefits of being on the crisis line as a volunteer is that it can be done from anywhere that you have phone reception.  So volunteers can just go about their normal day as long as they can be interrupted by calls when needed.  There are 2 layers of backup behind them as well.  We staff members do a week of call at a time as backup, and then our executive director is always on as the foundational layer of backup.
