Safe Voices seeks volunteers to help staff its 24-hour Domestic Violence Helpline
Safe Voices has TWELVE SLOTS open for our next Volunteer Helpline Training which starts on September 17th! We are currently seeking local volunteers to help staff our 24-hour free and confidential helpline which covers callers from Franklin, Oxford, and Androscoggin Counties.
Volunteers work from their homes using their own phones, and generally cover the helpline for approximately 4-12 hours per month, based on their availability and the needs of our helpline coverage. Primary volunteer coverage needs are weekday evenings/overnights and weekends (all shifts). All shifts have backup support from a supervising shift lead. Some weekday daytime shifts may be available depending on coverage needs. If you are available to help volunteer during one or more of these times, we encourage you to consider signing up for our training. Our coverage needs do change from time to time and there may be an opportunity for more afternoon and evening shifts in the future.
The helpline is usually the first contact a person makes with Safe Voices when they are looking for support and services around domestic violence. Helpline workers provide support and advocacy to survivors of domestic violence; assist in safety planning; and help to identify additional community resources as needed, with support from Safe Voices staff.
Interested volunteers must be at least 18 years of age, possess a landline or cell phone with good reception, should be sensitive to domestic violence situations, understand and be able to set clear boundaries, practice good self-care, be dependable, and have good listening and communication skills.
The Fall training schedule is:
-Sat., Sept. 17th: 9am-3pm -Sun., Sept. 18th: 9am-3pm -Mon., Sept. 19th: 3pm-6pm -Tues., Sept. 20th: 3pm-6pm -Wed., Sept. 21st: 3pm-6pm
Attendance and participation in each training session is mandatory in order to complete the training and become a volunteer. All training sessions will be held at LOCATION TBD. Lunch will be provided Saturday and Sunday, and snacks will be provided Mon.-Wed.
To apply to participate in the Safe Voices helpline training, please email a brief letter of intent and current resume to Safe Voices Community Educator, Hillary Hooke, at email@example.com. If you have any questions about Safe Voices or this training, you can email Hillary Hooke or call 778-2928.
Safe Voices is happy to offer volunteer and internship possibilities. Program areas include prevention/education, outreach/court advocacy, crisis call work, shelter, and fundraising. Placement is based on interest and availability of programs.
