1 in 3 women in Utah will expereince domestic violence in her lifetime! You can help by connecting these women to services in their local area by becoming a Volunteer Crisisline Advocate.
Utah Domestic Violence Coalition is a membership organization bringing together the domestic violence service providers in the state of Utah. We strive, along with our member organizations, to create a state where domestic violence and sexual assault are not acceptable.
Utah Domestic Violence Coalition administers a 24/7 domestic violence crisis hotline called the LINKline. The LINKline has been serving Utahn’s in crisis for over 20 years. We are currently accepting applications for Volunteer Crisis Line Advocates. Volunteers will receive extensive training before they begin taking calls. Once trained, volunteers take calls in their home during their assigned shift. This is a great way for individuals interested in gaining experience in the fields of social work, psychology, social justice, or criminal justice to work one on one assisting individuals who are in crisis or for any person interested in giving back to their community.
This opportunity will offer you the chance to help others and build your skills and resume as you:
- enhance your communication skills
- practice active listening
- demonstrate critical thinking
- engage in problem solving
- gain experience of the non profit sector, social work and legal systems
- assume a role of trust and responsibility
- effect social change
Advocates are asked to take two-three 4-hour shifts each month. Flexible scheduling and the ability to work remotely is available. There is also a required 40-hour training that is meant to prepare advocates for the wide variety of calls they might receive.
We are in need of individuals who can take calls during the day, evening, and overnight. If you are interested in helping keep this vital service available to every person who needs assistant from the LINKLine, please contact Samantha Candland our Volunteer Coordinator via email firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 801-521-5544 ext. 102. You can also learn more about our organization and the work that we do at our website udvc.org.
