Do friends and family tell you that you’re a good listener? Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity where you can really make a difference? Then volunteering for The Samaritans on Cape Cod and the Islands could be a great fit for you! Our volunteers are not counselors or therapists, so no experience is required in order to volunteer with us. All you need is the capacity to care and we’ll help with the rest. Volunteers are trained in non-judgmental active listening so as to best assist our callers who are lonely, depressed, or isolated. The next Crisis Line/Senior Outreach Volunteer Training will be held on February 5, 6, and 7. If you’d like to learn more about attending our upcoming volunteer training and how you can help make a difference, please contact our office to learn more!
