Becoming a volunteer with Suicide Action Montreal is an especially rewarding experience on many levels. In addition to receiving in-depth training in crisis intervention, you will be part of a team of 150 people who promote the same values of community and solidarity. You will also be part of the solution to suicide, which is a serious problem in Quebec.
To become a volunteer, please send a cover letter, including your phone number, by email to Marc Pagé at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyone who asks to be a volunteer will be contacted within the next two weeks for a brief telephone interview. If your application is successful, be aware that there may be a waiting period before you can participate in any of the trainings offered to become a volunteer.
Once you have been accepted, you receive practical and theoretical training, and work with an experienced volunteer for your first few telephone shifts. You are free to take various training workshops that are held throughout the year. Regardless of when you are helping someone in distress, you can count on the support of an employee. We want to help you help others!
