We prepare counselors to navigate a variety of situations that may come up on our crisis services through instruction that explores how to embody our Counselor Values, follow Counselor Principles, and apply Counseling Skills.
Throughout training, volunteers will cover topics including counseling skills, LGBTQ identity, our Support Model (the structure of a conversation on our crisis services), and relevant policies & procedures to prepare them to speak with young people in crisis.
Trainees and active counselors work closely with members of our team and have access to role-play scenarios, supervised support shifts, and one-on-one office hours to ensure that they are able to practice and apply their acquired skills in a supportive environment.
Throughout the training process, trainees will become familiar with our best-in-class technology, which helps us support youth in crisis.
Future counselors are chosen based on their dedication and commitment to the work. You do not need a driver’s license to become a counselor, but there are a few requirements.
Every day, LGBTQ young people in crisis reach out. It is vital we make sure our volunteers can continue to offer that support.Donate Now
