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, and trauma-informed approaches to suicide prevention.
Training will be taking place from the end of September to mid-November, including September 30th and the weekend of October 14/15, and will mainly take place on Tuesday evenings (aside from the weekends days just mentioned). After you have filled out the application, you will receive a copy of the training schedule in order to affirm that you will be able to make all of the sessions.
