The Crisis Line is looking for dependable, reliable and committed people to answer calls from individuals in our community experiencing life’s disappointments, isolation, loneliness and with some, complete destitution and/or suicide.

What does the Crisis Line experience offer volunteers:

• valuable interpersonal skills training

• a greater understanding  of human behaviour

• a way to enhance your academic and work           experience

• an enriching way to give back to your community.  

If you are looking for a powerful and rewarding way to affect the lives of individuals and families in need and can commit to three or four hours a week to be there for its callers, the Crisis Line might be an opportunity waiting for you.

The Crisis Line is taking applications for our first training session of the year and it starts March 8 to 19.

If you want to volunteer your time, call Lynne at 250-763-8058, ext. 233, for more information.

Seating is limited for the next Crisis Line training session. Interviews start Feb. 1.
