24 hour hotline volunteers
A key component in the operation of our successful SA/RCS program are the amazing volunteers who help make the operation of a 24 hour hotline possible 365 days a year. Hotline volunteer training is conducted twice a year and the 40 hour training will prepare you to counsel clients on the 24-hour crisis hotlines, and to accompany victims, provide emotional support and advocate for their rights throughout medical and legal proceedings.
The training is free for participants who commit to fulfilling the minimum required volunteer term. PA criminal background, child abuse and FBI clearances are required.
Please call 717-258-4324 for details on the next training session.
