Do you want to be involved in a ‘front-line’ helping environment?
BASAC is seeking volunteers to assist us with our crisis line calls
No experience necessary!
What are the majority of the calls to the line about?
Volunteers respond to calls dealing with issues such as substance abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, suicide, loneliness, and depression. Callers are looking for someone to listen to them, someone to talk to about their situation, or someone to provide direction when seeking services and assistance. Some calls are from someone who has been sexually assaulted. Our volunteers respond in person to the Battleford’s Union Hospital to provide much-needed support and assistance for those who have been victimized. (You are always paired up with another volunteer.)
Do I need to come to the office while I am on call?
No, volunteers are provided with a cell phone and supply bag. You can go about your daily life while carrying the phone with you.
What hours am I on call?
Volunteers are on call during the week (Monday-Thursday, 5:00 pm – 8:30 am) and weekends starting at 4:00 pm on Fridays. We usually have our volunteers take the crisis line for a week at a time, however, we make a schedule that fits into your life.
Make a difference for yourself and your Community!
