PEER SUPPORT VOLUNTEERS

Applications to be a peer support volunteer are now open! Please fill out the form here. If you have any questions, please e-mail volunteer@youthline.ca. Applications close August 31st at noon.

 

Peer Support Volunteers are the folks on the other end of the line. They take calls, chats, and texts from Ontario’s 2SLGBTQ youth. They do this Sunday-Friday, 4:00-9:30 PM.

 

Volunteering means:

  • Experiencing a fun and challenging 12 week training that focuses on anti-racism and anti-oppression frameworks
  • Hanging out in a community of other 2SLGBTQ youth
