Volunteer on the 24/7 Helpline

Be the Support Someone Needs

Each day, people who struggle with loneliness, depression, or suicidal feelings turn to Samaritans’ 24/7 Helpline for nonjudgmental support. On the other side of a phone call or text message, they find a caring listener ready to provide compassion. You can be that caring listener!

Please complete the inquiry form below and we will contact you with information on how to proceed with the volunteer application process. If you are a student interested in an internship placement, please reach out to Mackenzie at [email protected].

We truly appreciate your interest in volunteering with us to support those in need during these very challenging times.
