Volunteer training

We just completed our first 30 hour international crisis line advocate training of 2009! After completion of the training, advocates commit to a minimum of 1 year, six hours per week on the crisis line, or 312 hours. Most of our crisis line volunteers provide over 500 hours per year. The crisis line received 1182 calls or emails in 2008 from 56 different countries. Our volunteers are vital to the work we do. Because of their dedication and commitment, we are able to provide 24 hour service on the crisis line. We are always grateful for the financial support we receive through Global Giving because it enables us to conduct these trainings. We will be conducting 4 trainings this year, an increase from last year, and are planning our next one in May 2009.
