Parenting is a difficult job, and as a TALK Line Phone Operator, you will be part of a supportive network that parents and caregivers can rely on in times of need. This is a remote position and can be done from home as long as you have a quiet, confidential space and secure internet access. Our TALK Line volunteers find personal fulfillment, deep connection, and gain valuable skills through their experience. Apply Today!
