We are looking for people to volunteer on our 24-hour Crisis Helpline! As a volunteer advocate you will be responding to those directly impacted by domestic and sexual violence by providing immediate and confidential access to information, resources, and support. The training will run every Tuesday and Thursday night from 5:30 to 8:30 starting on February 5th and ending on February 26th in Aspen.
To become a volunteer you must complete a 30-hour training that is a combination of online courses you can take at your own leisure and seven three-hour sessions with Response’s team members and community partners such as law enforcement, treatment providers, and forensic specialists. The training will take place at the Health and Human Services building in Aspen located at 405 Castle Creek Road.
Once you finish the training, we ask you to take three to five shifts a month on our help line, depending on your availability. We have nine shifts per week of twelve hours each (Monday through Sunday from 7 pm until 7 am and two shifts Saturday and Sunday from 7 am to 7 pm.)
