CARE 7 Volunteer Opportunities

Print

CARE 7 opens recruitment for volunteers once a year, generally in the spring. Those wishing to become a CARE 7 volunteer attend a two-hour orientation. Potential volunteers then complete a written application, an interview, a reference check, and a statewide criminal background check. If these steps are completed successfully, the new volunteer then attends a series of evening training courses. The training covers topics and situations that are frequently encountered by CARE 7 staff and volunteers.

Training includes: 

  • Crisis Intervention Skills & Critical Incident Stress Management
  • Death Notification & Grief Support
  • Domestic Violence
  • Substance Abuse
  • Diversity & Homelessness
  • Mental Illness Overview & Self Harm
  • Sexual Assault & Special Populations
  • Suicide Intervention & Grief after Suicide
