Volunteer Board Member
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 those with an interest in social work, justice, education and 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. Please contact the office at 306-522-2777 and ask for Lisa or email email@example.com for more information.
Please send your resume and completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org with "Volunteer Application" in the subject line.

Crisis Line advocates must be at least 18 years of age. Applicants will attend a preliminary interview to discuss roles and responsibilities. At this time they will schedule the 14-hour First Responder to Sexual Assault and Sexual Abuse™ training, which occurs 2-3 times a year, in spring and fall. Once finished, the new volunteer will attend between 3-6 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, which they are responsible for picking up and dropping off. Volunteers also have the option to have the Crisis Line calls forwarded to their personal cell phone during their shift. On weekends, volunteers must use the small cell phone provided by the Centre.
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.
