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. During the sessions, volunteers learn the skills they need to be active listeners, recognize and respond to grief, depression, and anxiety, and work with diverse cultures. Volunteers who speak Mandarin, Tagalog, or Spanish, or who identify as LGBTQ+, are encouraged to apply!
Train to become a senior peer counselor, change a life by helping seniors with counseling, wellness checks, grief counseling and more.
