GIVE BACK WITH PASSION…VOLUNTEER AT CONTACT!
CONTACT of Burlington County has been assisting the residents of our community since 1972. Our volunteers represent a wide range of diversity and backgrounds. What they share in common is the willingness to help others. Our volunteers are people who genuinely care about their fellow human beings. The volunteers give caring, compassionate support to people who have an immediate need.
We have volunteer opportunities in several areas. No experience is necessary—in depth training is provided. If you are interested please call us at (856-234-5484) or fill out a form below.
Helpline Specialist: respond to people in need on our Crisis Helplines. Our trained volunteers assist callers in sorting through complex or confusing situations. They remain anonymous while on duty and are trained to offer services ranging from emotional support, to providing referrals, to emergency crisis intervention. Training covers special techniques for responding to people in crisis and sessions include listening skills, suicide prevention, referral assistance and crisis software. Volunteers must be 18 and a high school graduate at time of application.
Confidential Advocate: assist sexual assault victims in our Sexual Assault Services Program. Advocates receive training specific to sexual assault issues. Advocates learn how to provide supportive phone counseling and may accompany sexual assault victims at hospitals, police stations or court. Bilingual volunteers are desperately needed! Volunteers must be 18 and a high school graduate at time of application.
Volunteers also are needed for important short-term projects, such as staffing tables at community fairs or assisting on a fundraising event committee. Or, you may have a special skill that could benefit CONTACT. Call us: (856-234-5484).
