The Alachua County Crisis Center provides free and confidential crisis response services to the community, almost all of which are provided by highly trained volunteers. Volunteering with the Crisis Center is a great way to support our community and those in need while also learning invaluable communication skills you can use for the rest of your life.
Training starts on Saturday, May 28th and is over 60 hours over the course of 7 weeks. Volunteers will learn crisis intervention and suicide prevention skills which prepares them to answer phones on the National Suicide Prevention Hotline and our local crisis hotline. The training is offered for free and is being conducted entirely online. For more information about training, you can click here.
