TEEN LINE is a confidential telephone helpline for teenage callers. Teens call this hotline when they are facing issues of any size and to speak with someone their own age who is non-judgmental and there to listen. TEEN LINE’s trained Listeners help callers clarify their concerns, discuss options available, and make referrals to community resources, if needed. They staff the lines, and respond to emails and texts, every evening from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. PST
To get involved, you must live in the Los Angeles area and be in the 9th, 10th, or 11th grade of high school (Fall of 11th grade is the last session you can apply for). If you are interested in applying to TEEN LINE's volunteer program, please visit www.TEENLINEonline.org and click on "Get Involved" and "Volunteer" to fill out our application.
We have a careful screening process that includes the completion of a 5-page application, and individual and group interviews. Volunteers are unpaid, although you may get community service credit at school.
We look forward to having you on our team!
