Become a Careline Team Volunteer

Please email Elizabeth Young reception@carelineconnections.org.au advising if you are interested in joining our team.

Careline volunteers are willing listeners, able to pray for others and share the hope & love they have in Jesus with those who are interested to find out more.

While Careline Volunteers display some of the same skills as counselors, we are not a qualified counselling service. We provide all the training free of charge through our three-hour training morning on selected Saturdays as well as one-on-one Mentoring  and Webinar based training sessions to continually upskill our volunteers.

The Careline Volunteers Crisis & Prayer support line receives over 30,000 calls in a year Australia-wide from people wanting to have a confidential chat and to receive prayer about something that they are facing in life. If you would like to be part of this Amazing ministry, praying and sharing the love & hope of Jesus with our caller, Please fill out your details.

Training

Training is done at a three-hour Saturday morning event to make it easy for you to become qualified and prepares team members for every aspect of The Careline Volunteers. The final stage of training involves scenario practice, which is conducted over the phone. So wherever you live in Australia, it is possible to become a part of The Careline Volunteers.

“I thought the Careline online training was excellent and very easy to follow. The course was very informative and gave me all the information I required to gain an understanding of what the Careline was about and what was expected of me as a Careline Volunteer.” Careline Volunteer

Following the completion of the training, The Careline Team requires a 6 month commitment to joining the team. In the first 3 months, fortnightly debriefing appointments are scheduled. Following this, the requirement of all team members is a monthly debriefing appointment, which can be conducted over the phone.

Careline Volunteers meet together quarterly for on-going training & development, meet other team mates and celebrate all that God has accomplished through those who have been serving him and seeking him through the year.

Where do volunteers work from?

Volunteers have the option to work from home or from a Call Centre. Locations and timings of shifts are varied and flexible. So if you’ve got a small amount of time to give, or a lot, need to work from home or can travel, there are options available for you to be a part of the team.
