Volunteering at The Samaritans of New York
Apply now for our Summer Training Class!
Orientation sessions are going on now.
I'm one of over 100 volunteers on The Samaritans of New York's confidential 24-hour suicide prevention hotline who donates one morning or afternoon a week and one overnight shift a month responding to people who are depressed, in crisis and need someone to talk to.
The hotline responds to people with all kinds of problems--the elderly, teenagers, people suffering from illnesses like cancer and AIDS, the homeless, victims of crime and sexual violence, and people just like you and me who are suddenly facing some overwhelming obstacle or personal tragedy and need help getting through the moment.
The work is challenging, the training intensive, and the experience rewarding! The organization is non-religious and the volunteers work together as members of a cooperative team in a safe and comfortable office in New York City.
And though you cannot solve everyone's problems, it's satisfying to
know that when someone reaches out for help...You're there!
