Event description

Description

We are in need of volunteers to help staff our 24/7 crisis services center for 2018.

The National Runaway Safeline’s 48 year old hotline and online crisis services connects with runaway, homeless and at-risk youth and their families at their most vulnerable moments. We are able to provide this free, critical support because of our team of committed, crisis trained volunteers. Our volunteers are available 24/7/365, utilizing state of the art communication technology to offer a safe, non-judgmental space for youth to reach out talk about the issues they face every day such as abuse, neglect, family conflict, mental health, bullying, and more.

Attend one of our upcoming volunteer orientations to learn more about being a Crisis Hotline Volunteer:

Tue Feb 26th 6:30-7:30PM

Sat Mar 2nd 12:00-1:00PM

Wed Mar 6th 6:30-7:30PM

Tue Mar 26th 6:30-7:30PM

The mandatory orientation includes an introduction to runaway and homeless youth issues, our history, values, services, crisis intervention training program, internship and work-study opportunities, and expectations—not to mention free pizza and snacks!

***Please RSVP at your earliest convenience, as there are limited seats available.***

After orientation a staff member will be available for a personal interview. Before taking their first call, each “liner” completes a 40-hour training program including classroom and experiential training. NRS socially conscious intergenerational volunteers range from age 16 to age 70 years old and live in the Chicagoland area.

More than 110 volunteers serve as NRS’ lifeblood. Thank you for considering joining our team.
