Volunteer Opportunities

PLEASE NOTE: Due to COVID-19 pandemic our training schedule is being adapted to an online format. We are currently accepting applications. We will discuss training months in the phone interview with each of you.

Our highly trained volunteers are dedicated to providing compassionate support to those in distress.  In turn, Distress Centre is dedicated to supporting the incredible work they do. We ensure they are prepared, comfortable and successful in their role.
