Become a Volunteer Crisis Counselor.
It's time for you to fulfill that strong need within yourself to change the world a little bit. By doing so, you'll be joining one of the greatest volunteer programs in the universe.
Volunteer rape crisis and domestic violence advocates provide crisis counseling, emotional support and advocacy to survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence who seek treatment in the emergency departments of our affiliate hospitals, which include Mount Sinai West, Mount Sinai St. Luke's and Lenox Health Greenwich Village. All it takes is a comprehensive 40-hour training (provided by us), two 12-hour shifts per month, and a willingness to do a whole lot of good.
Our 2018 training is no longer accepting applications. Please get in touch if you're interested in taking our next training in October 2019. The training takes place on a Thursday evening and over two full weekends (8am-5:15pm Saturday and Sunday).
To become an advocate, you must be:
- over 18 years of age
- able to reach Mount Sinai West, Mount Sinai St. Luke's and/or Lenox Health Greenwich Village within 20 minutes in a cab
- able to commit to being on-call for two 12-hour shifts per month
- able to commit to the program for at least one year if accepted
- able to attend all training dates above
