Teen Link Volunteers begin as Outreach Workers and must be between 13-20 years of age. They raise awareness of Teen Link in their school and community by distributing flyers and resource booklets, and giving presentations about the program. Help line volunteers must be between 15-20 years of age. Adult volunteers are needed to supervise the help line volunteers or to provide youth suicide prevention training in schools.
Warm Line calls are answered by people living in mental health recovery who want to connect with and empower others. Are you compassionate and a good listener? Do you want to empower others in their recovery?
Are you a veteran who would like to support other veterans? Veterans who have lived experience with an emotional or mental health challenge can volunteer to provide peer support for other vets.
