“I volunteer for Crisis Text Line because practicing empathy and reflective listening makes me a better friend, partner, and employee.” — CRISIS COUNSELOR, STUDENT

What our Crisis Counselors do Crisis Text Line is the free, 24/7 text line for people in crisis in the United States. The service is powered by volunteer Crisis Counselors who work remotely — anywhere with a computer and secure internet connection works.

We need you at nightWhen the rest of the country is sleeping, 2/3 of our crisis situations, and by default texter volume, occurs at night. Our greatest need for Crisis Counselors is between 7pm and 3am PST (10pm and 6am EST).

Are you a night owl or early riser? Looking for an odd-hours volunteer opportunity in crisis intervention? You’ve found the right place!
