Summer 2022 Lifeline Support Worker Training Starting Soon!

Our first ever Summer Lifeline Support Worker Training is starting this month so if you are interested in participating, this is your last chance to apply for this cohort! Volunteering as a Lifeline Support Worker is a great way to give back while also developing your own personal and professional abilities. Can you help us build towards our goal of offering 24/7 support to the international community in Japan?

The course involves an initial 10-week online course teaching listening skills and how to apply them effectively on both the phone and chat platforms. Each week of the course you would be watching presentations; completing reading; writing a journal; completing a role play to practice your skills, and joining a weekly seminar. 

There are approximately 8 hours of work to complete each week.  Trainees also need to complete an apprenticeship period, which involves supervised shifts on the lifeline and longer role-play practice on set topics. Typically the training takes 4-5 months to complete in total.

Key Dates:
Online Course: May 21 – July 31
Mandatory sessions: 21 or 22 May; 2 or 3 July; 30 or 31 July
