Listening Volunteer

Are there any requirements?

  • Commitment to attending our initial training process.

We organize training for students who want to become listening volunteers twice a year, once each semester. Training is 7 weeks long and is usually every Tuesday and Thursday from 6-8pm. It is conducted in-person, on the UOM campus.

Our extensive training schedule ensures our volunteers can provide their fellow students with professional and emotional support. Training is run by experienced volunteers and external speakers with the aim of preparing our new volunteers and spreading awareness about issues faced by students. We cover a huge range of topics including mental health, LGBTQ, alcohol and substance abuse.
