How to join Nightline
Nightline depends on its volunteers for success. We are always looking for motivated students who are willing to help others by volunteering with us.
There are two ways you can help Nightline: either as a Nightliner (the listening volunteers who do overnight shifts) or as part of our Publicity Team, helping make students aware of Nightline. These opportunities are open to all current students at UEA.
Volunteering as a Nightliner (taking calls)
Volunteers who take calls make up the backbone of the service; without them, Nightline simply could not operate.
Volunteers are given full training, and are asked to do a minimum of three shifts per term. Volunteers can get a lot out of working with us; it’s a great way to meet new people and develop valuable skills, such as effective listening and teamwork.
Training takes place twice a year, once in October and once in February, and takes place either over one weekend or two consecutive Saturdays. The dates for the next training session are yet to be finalised. However if you would like more information about joining Nightline, then please contact our training officer at [email protected]
Volunteering in the Publicity Team
If you don’t feel that doing shifts is right for you, then why not join our Publicity Team instead? Publicity team members don’t do shifts, but help us to create new publicity ideas, put up posters, create fundraising opportunities, and attend publicity and fundraising events.
