To become a Senior Peer Counselor, volunteers participate in two, three and a half-hour training sessions each week for a total of five weeks.

  • Live in San Mateo County
  • Be a good listener
  • Have reliable transportation
  • Be able to devote at least one hour a week to meet with a participant
