Volunteer Hotline Counselor Position Description

 

General

2-1-1 Big Bend operates Helpline 2-1-1, the Florida HIV/AIDS Hotline and the Family Health Line. In addition, the agency answers calls for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline and other organizations that contract with 2-1-1 Big Bend for hotline services.  Volunteer Hotline Counselors provide callers with free, confidential counseling, crisis intervention, information and referrals.  When volunteers graduate from the 75 hour initial 2-1-1 Big Bend Hotline Counselor Training program and are cleared for solo duty, they answer Helpline 2-1-1 and Lifeline.  Additional training is required to answer the Florida HIV/AIDS Hotline and the Family Health Line.  Volunteer Counselors report to the Coordinator of Volunteers. 

 

Minimum Qualifications

Counselors who would like to work on these hotlines must have successfully completed the 2-1-1 Big Bend Hotline Counselor Training Program, have a minimum of 50 hours answering the hotlines operated by 2-1-1 Big Bend and must have satisfactory evaluations (including attendance) in all positions held.

In addition, applicants must commit to being with the agency for at least six months upon completing either of these additional hotline training classes (Florida HIV/AIDS Hotline or Family Health Line).

 

Training and Supervision

Volunteer Counselors are provided with approximately 75 to 100 hours of initial training through classroom training, phone-room training and supervised shifts and receive ongoing training through in-services, counselor meetings, tutorial disks, and direct supervision and evaluation. The Coordinator of Volunteers and Off-Site Supervisors directly supervise Volunteer Counselors.

 

Family Health Line and/or Florida HIV/AIDS Hotline Volunteer Counselors are provided with approximately 30 hours of additional training specific for the applicable hotline, including classroom training, phone-room training and supervised shifts.
