Recruiting Baby Boomer Volunteers for LI Crisis Center

Press Releases

Are you a baby boomer? Long Island Crisis Center asks you to volunteer & help save a life.

Bellmore, NY - May 30, 2014 - Long Island Crisis Center, the 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week suicide prevention and crisis intervention hotline, is currently recruiting volunteers to participate in its upcoming Counselor Assistant Training Program.
Recognizing the valuable life skills and life experiences that today’s baby boomers (who are nearing retirement or are already retired) have acquired, the Crisis Center is seeking those who now have the time to volunteer and become lifesaving partners with them.  No counseling experience is necessary and the hours are flexible (around-the-clock) to accommodate the individual needs of volunteers. 
The free, comprehensive orientation training program takes place over 3 three-hour sessions at the Crisis Center’s office in Bellmore.  June’s training will be held on 3 successive Wednesday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on June 11th, 18th and 25th.  July’s training will be held on 3 successive Wednesday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on July 2nd, 9th and 16th.  August’s training will be held on 3 successive Saturday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on August 9th, 16th and 23rd.
