Samaritans is currently seeking summer interns and volunteers to staff our 24/7 suicide prevention helpline. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization and while they come from many different backgrounds and experiences, they share a desire to make our community stronger through the simplicity of human connection. Successful candidates will possess the ability to empathize with others and have strong listening skills. No previous experience is required; all volunteers and interns receive training that will equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to provide emotional support to callers.
To begin the application process, interested candidates must attend an Information Session and complete an interview with a current staff member or volunteer. Click here to complete our online inquiry and receive upcoming Information Session dates.
