HELP Line offers training at the start of every semester through Madison House. Training is led by volunteers and is one evening a week for 10 weeks for 3 hours. To register for training, please use the Madison House website. You can learn more about the process by signing up at the Activities Fair (we’ll be with the Madison House booth), or by emailing one of our directors.
HELP Line Training begins the week of September 15th. Reach out via email if you would like to join us this semester!
As a lines volunteer
Anonymous volunteers are trained to listen to callers with issues ranging from relationship problems to sexual assault to suicidal thoughts. Since volunteers are not professionals, they focus on referring callers to long-term services.
The outreach team works to publicize HELP Line in the community, on and off Grounds. Outreach members are trained HELP Line volunteers who choose to go off lines and spread the word about our services.
What you can do now
Spread the word! Help us make HELP Line the best resource it can be to UVA by telling people you know about us.
