The Memphis Crisis Center is having a big push for new volunteers to meet the growing community need for our crisis line services.  If you are a good listener, we need you.  Our focus is on recruiting EARLY BIRDS and NIGHT OWLS, volunteers who can work morning shifts (7:30 am-1:00 pm) and overnight shifts (11:00 am-7:30 am).

Overnight shifts can be “buddy shifts.”  That means if you would like to work bring a regular buddy (spouse, friend, classmate), we do allow that although they will need to fill out a confidentiality form and other applicable paperwork.

Our next training will be an accelerated training class on Saturday October 14th from 9:00 am-5:00 pm.  The cost per participant is $25.00.  If you have ever wanted to help those who are lonely, sad, struggling, facing a life challenge, or in crisis, this is your chance to become part of the Memphis Crisis Center Family and make a real difference in someone’s life.

We ask volunteers to work one fixed shift every other week.  For more information contact us at volunteers@crisis7.org or at (901) 448-2803.
