Ongoing Opportunity: A few times a month, fitting with your schedule
Connect2Help is looking for interested community members to help us with our suicide and crisis calls. Each volunteer will be provided with free training on how to help our callers and direct them to the level of care best suited for their needs.
Each volunteer will be provided with free training on how to help our callers and direct them to the level of care best suited for their needs. We have 40-hour volunteer trainings that are required before becoming an active volunteer. We will ask our trained volunteers to help us a few times a month, as it is convenient with their schedule.
NO EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED! Our training will give crisis volunteers all they need to assess their callers, practice active listening, how to reflect empathy and how to provide referrals to meet the caller’s needs. Many of our callers just need someone to listen and to care. Would you like to help us? Visit www.connect2help211.org to complete a volunteer application and email the completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also call us directly at 317-926-HELP.
