Next Recruitment: October 2017
Description: Calltaking volunteers are trained to answer the phones for both listening and information calls, therefore learn to deal with a wide range of problems. There will also be the option to train in E-listening, Instant Messenger and our Text Service as well.
Commitment: Attend a training weekend and then 5 duties a semester, attend a weekly 1 hour training session during term time and 5 hours of extra volunteering.
Requirements: Due to the number of applicants every year and the length of the training process, we cannot guarantee you will be able to become a call taking volunteer so you must attend an Intro Meeting and fill out a form as part of the selection process. Application is open to all students except those in their final year of study in Sheffield.
Friends of Nightline (FONs)
Description: FONs help us with our publicity and fundraising events. You will be taught about the basics of Nightline and then a sign up rota will be sent out to you whenever there is an event.
Commitment: As little or as much as you want to get involved. You can sign up around your timetable. Our biggest events are Freshers’ Introduction events, Nightline Awareness Week (in November) and Exam Periods. There are also smaller events such as glowsticking, filming for promotional videos and speed dating throughout the year.
Requirements: Attend a FONs training session.
