Ways to give your time and talent to HeartLine.
Become a facilitator with the Healthy Education for Life Program. HELP, HeartLine’s youth suicide prevention initiative, is presented in local middle schools and high schools throughout the school year. You can become a HELP facilitator by attending one volunteer training session. In the session, volunteer facilitators will learn the basic structure of HELP and learn how to present the information and conduct the interactive activities that make up the curriculum. Requirements for a HELP facilitator include:
- attending one 6-hour training session
- committing to a minimum of 20 volunteer hours per year
- working within a flexible volunteer schedule that is primarily made up of daytime presentations
For more information on becoming a volunteer HELP presenter, please email Rachel Yates or call 405-840-9396 x107.
Volunteer to be a certified call specialist. In our call center, we have both paid staff and volunteers. Call specialists are trained to answer the phone for HeartLine and experience first hand the way we help Oklahomans in crisis. Call specialist training requires a substantial commitment of time and energy but is one of the most rewarding volunteer experiences we have to offer. For more information on volunteering, you may email HeartLine’s Call Center Coordinator, Louis Paugh or call 405-840-9396 x167.
