Did you know every year 4.2 million youth experience homelessness?
1 out of 30 youth ages 13-17 and 1 out of 10 young people ages 18-25 endured some form of homelessness such as couch surfing, living on the streets or staying in a shelter. The National Runaway Safeline is looking for dedicated, compassionate volunteers ages 16 and over to help keep youth safe and off the streets.
You can help make a difference in someone’s life!
We are looking for crisis line volunteers who can commit to 2-4 hours a week regularly for 6 months. Our volunteers are trained to provide solution-focused crisis intervention through our Live Chat via www.1800runaway.org and other online services that include forums and e-mail.
Please join us for a 1 hour orientation session
You’ll learn more about the history, commitment and expectations of NRS Volunteers. A link to the event will be sent out to those who register. Thank you! We can’t wait to meet you!
