About

*We are in huge need of volunteers available for 2-4 hour shifts specifically on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Flexible hours.*

Crisis Line Volunteers (liners) are volunteers who are responsible for providing crisis intervention through 1-800-RUNAWAY hotline or 1800RUNAWAY.org online services. Liners are trained to effectively provide support and services for callers in a non-judgmental and empowering manner. The training program consists of 40 hours of instruction, discussion, role-plays, and on-the-job training in the call center. All training activities support the liners in learning successful active listening and crisis intervention skills. After completion of training, volunteers are asked to commit 2-4 hours/week for at least one year. Liners must be at least 16 years of age and have computer typing skills.
