Prescott Area Shelter Services Overnight Advocate
Arizona, Prescott , 86301 Prescott USA

We currently have the need for overnight advocates. The person must be at least 21 years of age. The hours are 8pm-8am. Advocates trained would have first opportunity to do extra nights as "fill in" as needed, as well as the nights that are open.

The main focus is the supervision and companionship for the guests. This position may help with crisis intervention, house management, individual and group problem-solving, conflict resolution and maintenance of a safe and supportive atmosphere for our guests. Overall, the essential goal of an advocate is to be a positive source of encouragement and compassion for our guests. This volunteer (stipend position) can sleep onsite 10pm-6am, but still has to be available to guests when needed during those hours and maintaining a safe environment.

The volunteer confirms the attendance of guests before their required curfew, accepts clients returning late from

work and provides wake up calls for guests who are scheduled to leave early. The volunteer documents

important information in the Volunteer Log Book. If necessary, the volunteer relays important or time sensitive

information directly to staff. The volunteer facilitates the morning routine and ensures the dorm is empty and

secure before leaving. This is a paid volunteer position.

Desired Qualifications

 Excellent communication and problem solving skills

 Awareness of issues surrounding homelessness

 Experience in conflict management and crisis intervention

 Knowledge of child and adolescent development, needs and behavior

 Familiarity with local social service resources

 Flexibility and dependability
