Volunteer

Many of our phone lines rely upon the commitment and generosity of volunteers in the King County region.  Based in Seattle, WA, our organization provides those in need with emotional connection, crisis intervention, peer support, and more.

All of our volunteers participate in an immersive training program, after which they field phone calls in our Seattle office with oversight and guidance from our staff.  We do not have any remote volunteering opportunities available at this time.

We hope that you consider joining our force of nearly 300 volunteers!  Below you can find more information on our current opportunities, as well as online applications.  You can expect a response back within a week.

24-Hour Crisis Line

Volunteers on our crisis lines receive an intensive training in active listening, emotional de-escalation, crisis intervention, and suicide intervention.  After completing the training, crisis line volunteers take on a weekly shift between the hours of 8AM and 12AM.
