Volunteer Intake Practitioner (VIP)

When people in need call us, they need a caring person to listen, reassure, and help. That is why we need you. You can be the person who meets them first, makes their initial interaction with us a welcoming one, and most importantly, helps them receive the care they need. Insight Counseling Centers is seeking Volunteer Intake Practitioners (VIPs) to answer our phones and connect people to the services they need. 

Time Commitment:
A weekly or biweekly shift of 3 to 4 hours, during the hours of 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday

  • Arriving in a timely manner to handle calls during your shift, greeting prospective clients promptly when they call 
  • Conducting a client-centered intake experience 
  • Communicating with clients, families and others in a caring, empathetic, courteous, and respectful manner 
  • Receiving and responding to incoming calls from referral sources: exchanging information to identify clients’ needs and determining our ability to meet them 
  • Entering and updating prospective client status information as needed in our data systems 
  • Scheduling initial counseling sessions when appropriate and providing resource information options as needed 
  • Recording the outcome of calls, making follow-up calls as necessary, and identifying alternative community service sources when Intake solutions are not available 
  • Fostering teamwork and contributing to Insight’s client service goals 
  • Ensuring client safety, dignity and privacy at all times, including HIPAA’s client confidentiality rules 

Qualifications: This role requires…

  • Critical thinking, service excellence, and interpersonal communication skills to solve problems for our clients, referral sources, and therapists as needed 
  • The ability to understand written and verbal instructions and basic computer skills, with attention to detail, thoroughness, and accuracy 
  • Any previous intake experience is a great help, but not necessary to succeed in this role
