There is only one thing required to become a listener: a desire to listen.
To become a volunteer at the Listening Post we only ask one more thing of you: take our introductory training session (okay, two things, the second is that you must be at least 18 years old to become a volunteer at the Listening Post).
This brief training, about 2 1/2 hours, will give a volunteer an understanding of our intention and policy. It will also offer insights on what it means to be present as a listener and some of the things that, over time, we’ve learned about listening as an ongoing practice, a sacred art, and an invaluable offering to our community.
If you have any questions about becoming a volunteer or if you’d like to schedule a training session, please fill out the form below and we will respond to you by email.
Thank you for your interest!
