We are here to help. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our Board of Directors is interested in hearing from people who wish to be involved in advocating for victims and survivors, through policy, fundraising and organizational direction.
crisis line advocates
Be the voice they need to hear. Our crisis line advocates are there to support anyone impacted by sexual assault and sexual abuse, any time they need it.
Crisis Line advocates must be at least 18 years of age. Applicants will attend a preliminary interview to discuss roles and responsibilities. After the interview, the volunteer will be given access to 10 online training modules, which will be completed as their time permits. Once finished, the new volunteer will attend between 4-6 hours of face-to-face scenario training, to ensure they are able to respond to calls in a sensitive and appropriate manner.
Crisis Line volunteers are required to carry a small cellphone with them from 4:30 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. the following morning, two times a month. The Centre can arrange for the pick-up and drop-off of the cellphones.
Additionally, a victim may request that an advocate attend to a Regina hospital to act as support. This is the victim's choice whether to have someone present or not.
You may also be asked to attend to the police station with the person while they give a statement to police. You are not required to transport people to the hospital or police station. The Centre will provide transportation, if needed.
kids on the block
Kids on the Block seeks outgoing people who are interested in educating children about safety and abuse. Volunteers must be able to stand and lift, memorize short scripts, and be comfortable presenting to groups about bullying, safety and abuse.
Kids on the Block uses volunteers to assist in delivering vitally important information to school-aged children. Due to the size of the puppets and the presentation format, volunteers must be able to stand and lift, memorize scripts and be comfortable channeling their "inner actor" in order to create presentations that are engaging, entertaining and effective. Volunteers must be comfortable speaking audibly to groups of kids and have some daytime availability.
Kids on the Block can provide a valuable volunteer opportunity for many people, especially those with an interest in social work, social justice, education and fine arts.
Potential volunteers will meet with the Education Coordinator for an interview. The volunteer will then participate in 4-6 hours of basic puppeteering training, as well as training in child safety and child protection issues within our community.
