Volunteering

[En Español]

Caring Volunteer on PhoneBy becoming  a suicide crisis line volunteer you can make a difference in someone’s life. We will teach you how to offer a safe space where people can call for free, confidential, support without judgment. Volunteering on our suicide crisis line is a great way to gain experience, learn new skills, and become part of an amazing, compassionate community.

We offer training every spring and fall. In these sessions, you will learn active listening skills, crisis intervention strategies, risk assessment, local resources, and much more. You will also meet others who are committed to reducing the stigma of suicide and helping people directly.

If you would like to volunteer, click here for the Volunteer Contact Form.

If you are a college student, we do accept field study applications.  Please contact us to learn of any openings.

You must be age 18 or over to be a suicide crisis line volunteer.

Coastal Trail Walk Volunteers are also needed for the day of our annual fundraising event.  This year, the walk will be held on Saturday, September 17, 2016.  Please visit www.coastaltrailwalk.org for more information or to sign up for the walk.
