Volunteer Roles

Counselor Assistants (CAs) answer business phones and help counselors in a variety of ways. In addition interested CAs can join our community outreach team, representing LICC at area schools and community events.

Counselors answer all of the hotlines and provide online counseling and counseling to walk-in clients. As the center is widely recognized for its expertise in crisis-intervention counseling training, counselors will receive an intensive training about a variety of current issues affecting youth and families.

Time Commitment

Counselor Assistants make a commitment of 3-4 hours per week. Counselors-in-training and Counselors are asked to volunteer 6 hours per week. The hours do not have to be done all at once and can be spread out over the week according to your availability. In addition, after going through the Counselor Training, counselors MUST commit to do at least 200 hours (approximately 8 months) of shift time after they have completed the counselor training.

All volunteers are expected to do a 3-4 hour weekend shift twice per year as part of their volunteer commitment.
