In partnership with, Crisis Text Line, Kids Help Phone will launch the first ever 24/7, free, nationwide texting service.
We are now recruiting Bilingual Crisis Responders who will answer texts from young people looking for support in both English AND French. The volunteer position will be remote, meaning that you can participate from anywhere in Canada as long you have a strong, reliable internet connection!
Our volunteers need to be enthusiastic about helping people! You can be a professional, student, teacher, retiree, or anybody else with an internet connection and a willingness to learn how to support people over text.
The role of a Crisis Responder is to bring texters from a “hot” moment to a cool calm, and to help them come up with a plan to stay healthy and safe. Crisis Responders are trained to do this using active listening and collaborative problem-solving.
