Volunteer Guidelines and Tips
- Respond to the reminder text the day before your shift begins so we know that you’ll be available for your shift.
- Ensure your phone isn’t muted at least 30 minutes before your shift begins.
- Be available and sober for your entire shift.
- Never give out an AA member’s phone number.
- Get the caller the help they need and keeps calls short.
- Use the Helpline’s website for meeting schedule links and other info.
- It’s easy to focus on just giving out meeting times and locations and missing the larger role that we can fulfill.
- You will get calls requesting meeting info, but our main function is to be a friendly, welcoming voice.
- In addition to finding a meeting, the Caller also wants to know what to expect at their first meeting. Remember yours? They are probably anxious about the unknown.
