Our compassionate volunteers are online every evening to validate the experiences of youth through instant message (IM) and text message (SMS). No prior experience is needed. Volunteers receive 40 hours of classroom training in reflective listening, crisis theory, trauma-informed approaches to suicide prevention.
If you are interested in our Fall training group, please use the contact form below to let us know! We will send you a brief email when we are recruiting later in the summer, and you can apply at that time.
Training will take place mostly on Tuesday evenings in September/October, with a couple of weekend days as well. When you apply in the summer, you will be sent a detailed schedule of training dates.
