Volunteer peer counseling is an unpaid position, so we can continue to provide support to anyone who needs it. One volunteer shared how it's impacted her, "My volunteer experience has significantly changed the way I operate in professional and personal relationships. I'm a better manager and colleague thanks to what I've learned."
