About

We've all heard about bullying and cyberbullying in the media and the many suicides that have been a result of this type of victimization.

Do you want to enrich your life while helping kids and teens who are victims - or perhaps even the bully?

If you are 21 or over, have an education in psychology, social work, education or a related field, are good with people, have excellent communications skills and the ability to listen empathetically and provide unconditional acceptance -- we invite you to consider becoming a HelpChat Line Volunteer Counselor for STOMP Out Bullying(tm).

Beginning with a comprehensive training program and continuing with on-going supervision and advanced trainings, STOMP Out Bullying(tm) ensures that each and every HelpChat Counselor is prepared to deal with the wide range of issues they will confront on Help lines. The one day intensive Volunteer Training Program is taught by experts in active listening, the issue of bullying and cyberbullying, grief recovery, mental health issues, substance abuse, and suicide intervention. It is dynamic and highly interactive.

Previous experience on a crisis line is an added plus!
