Volunteer with Nightline:
Who: Our volunteers are all students of the University of Bath and want to help others through their time at university. Are you a good listener and enjoy supporting others?
Commitment: Volunteering is a flexible term time commitment of at least one night shift every three weeks. Shifts are on campus, well supported and supplied with snacks and beds to sleep in in-between calls. Could you commit to this? Please seriously consider- we would love to welcome you into our Nightline community!
Training: All our volunteers are given full training over one weekend by the Nightline Committee and additional training is available throughout the year. Training is usually run twice a year, one weekend in October and another in early February. You only have to attend one training weekend in order to become a volunteer. To sign up or ask any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org (our account that fields all our admin and volunteer requests). It is always a pleasure to hear from interested volunteers!
