Teen Link Volunteers begin as Outreach Workers and must be between 13 and 20 years of age. They raise awareness of Teen Link in their school and community or they join our Youth Suicide Speakers Bureau to help educate their peers about youth suicide.
Teens interested in answering phones on the Teen Link Help Line must complete an additional training in crisis intervention similar to the training received by volunteers on the 24-Hour Crisis Line, but is specially focused on working with youth. Help line volunteers must be between 15 and 20 years of age.
Adult volunteers are needed to mentor the help line volunteers or to provide youth suicide prevention training in schools. A personal interview determines suitability. Youth Crisis Mentor positions are now available!
