Event description

Description

Did you know every year 4.2 million youth experience homelessness?

1 out of 30 youth ages 13-17 and 1 out of 10 young people ages 18-25 endured some form of homelessness such as couch surfing, living on the streets or staying in a shelter. The National Runaway Safeline is looking for dedicated, compassionate volunteers ages 16 and over to help keep youth safe and off the streets.

Our volunteers speak directly to youth and families seeking vital resources in their community through our crisis hotline and online services. Youth reach out to us seeking shelter, food and mental health services or sometimes they are simply looking for someone who will listen without judgement.

You can help make a difference in someone’s life!

We are looking for crisis line volunteers who can commit to 2-4 hours a week regularly for 6 months. Our volunteers are trained to provide solution-focused crisis intervention through our 1-800-RUNAWAY hotline and online services that include a live chat, forums and e-mail.

Click here to find out why our volunteers choose to be part of our wonderful, supportive community.

Please fill out an application to receive updates about orientation sessions and upcoming training information.
