Volunteering as a Distress Line Listener can be a life-changing experience. Completing your volunteer contract as a distress line listener is a great way to enhance your resume and earn a great reference letter. If you work, or are thinking about working, in a helping field (social work, counselling, nursing, etc.), becoming a distress line listener give you lots of experience and help to grow your skills. Without highly-skilled, caring volunteers, the distress line would cease to exist and more than 1.300 calls for help would go unanswered each month.
