Become a Call 11 for Action Volunteer

Call 11 for Action Volunteers
The entire Call 11 for Action program is maintained by dedicated volunteers. These volunteers give the consumers a nonthreatening place to turn to, act as a neutral third party and offer them guidance from start to finish.

What do you need volunteers for?
Volunteers are needed to help resolve consumer complaints, either by referral or mediation.

What does it take to be a CFA volunteer?
The most important qualification is a sincere desire to help people resolve consumer problems they have been unable to solve themselves. We ask that you make a one-year commitment to the program, and participants should be at least 18 years old.

Do you provide any sort of training?
Yes. Our development team provides the training necessary to become a volunteer professional.

How much time would I need to spend each week?
Volunteers devote a few hours, one day a week, usually from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Where is the office?
Call 11 for Action is located at WTOL's offices at 730 North Summit St.

What kind of people usually volunteer for CFA?
All kinds:  teachers, lawyers, former CEOs, engineers, homemakers, pharmacists, secretaries, government employees and writers. People just like you!

    If you have ever had imaging done at a medical office or hospital, then had to go to another office for follow-up, chances are, you have had to go with a CD of your file or paper copy. That is changing thanks to a medical image sharing network.

    Thursday, July 27 2017 9:18 PM EDT2017-07-28 01:18:57 GMT

    For years we've heard about the need for a new I-10 Calcasieu River Bridge. There is a time line and an upcoming public meeting is part of the process of determining what will happen and when. Though the discussion is usually about a new I-10 bridge, the proposed project includes improvements between I-10 and 210 interchanges.

    Senator Bill Cassidy reacts to Obamacare 'Skinny Repeal'

    Thursday, July 27 2017 8:48 PM EDT2017-07-28 00:48:35 GMT

    It was another day of political gridlock on Capitol Hill as members of the Senate made another push to repeal and replace Obamacare. Republican senators are drafting a proposal which likely won't include any replacement ideas but a "Skinny repeal" that would take out unpopular parts of the Affordable Care Act. Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy explained today how the repeal would impact Americans.
