Volunteering At The Crisis Centre

Volunteering at the Crisis Centre is a great way to make a contribution to your community.

Being a volunteer changes your life

It gives you a new perspective, a new way of looking at your own problems when you have a chance to understand others. The training is really beneficial for your own communication skills and relationships.

Please consider volunteering at the Crisis Centre!

Upcoming Training

The Crisis Prevention, Intervention & Information Centre for Northern BC generally offers volunteer training three times a year. If you are interested in taking this valuable training and are eager to help people in crisis, please fill out an application and email it to the Program Coordinator at program.coordinator@crisis-centre.ca. Once you have completed and submitted your application, you will be contacted for an interview. Please note that due to the increased cost to train new volunteers, we are now asking trainees for a $100 non-refundable fee to defray the cost of training. This fee also includes the ASIST training and certificate that comes with crisis line worker training and is usually $299 alone.

Volunteer training sessions are ongoing, and we are always accepting applications.
