If friends or family have said you're a good listener, then volunteering on our Crisis Line may be a perfect fit! Our volunteers are not therapists or counselors, but are dedicated and compassionate people who are looking for fulfillment. They are retired educators, stay at home mothers and fathers, coders, social workers, students, cashiers- and every one in between!
Because we know people's schedules are busy, we have condensed our Crisis Line Training. Our next training is on Saturday, October 14th from 9-3pm. This comprehensive training will teach you skills you'll use to help the thousands of people who call into our lines each year looking for non-judgmental listening. We'll cover our history, talk about depression and suicide, and learn the communication you'll need to help our callers. You'll do a shadow shift or two with an experienced volunteer and we'll be there every step of the way!
