Volunteer Training Begins Oct 13, 2022

Volunteering makes a difference.

Join our Team and be the Change you Believe in!

Volunteering at Starting Point requires an initial commitment of 30 hours of training required by NH RSA. This can seem overwhelming to some. But once the training requirements are met volunteer opportunities abound and can easily fit into a busy schedule. Commitment can vary from a project once or twice a year, to a few hours a month, to a regular shift on our support line.

Volunteering at Starting Point is extremely fulfilling. We like to remind our volunteers that it was volunteers who built Starting Point and that any person with compassion and an ability to share resources has the ability to be a Starting Point volunteer.

“I wanted to volunteer at Starting Point to give back. I knew that the work would be heartbreaking at times. I felt prepared for that. What I wasn’t prepared for was how joy-filled the work can be too. Helping someone, sometimes just by listening and believing in them, move from being a victim to becoming a survivor is so rewarding. I’ve learned a lot about myself in the process too, like how to be a better communicator and listener. The Starting Point staff takes self-care very seriously so I’ve learned a lot about creating space for myself too.!”

Training begins Oct 13 at the Advocacy Center in Conway, 30 Pleasant St, from 5 to 8 pm. Anyone interested in volunteering or in learning more about Starting Point is welcome to attend.
