The TELL Lifeline Phone Counselor Training Program is available both online as well as with a new, flexible in-classroom schedule. It starts on February 21 in Tokyo and on February 14 in Kansai. The program offers a great chance for personal growth as well as an opportunity to provide confidential counseling and support to the community.

You don’t need to have qualifications or experience in counseling to be a caring listener. TELL’s comprehensive training program makes sure all volunteers are skilled and ready. Most importantly, the organization is looking for people that are:

  • Interested in supporting people in need in their community
  • Open to understand another person’s point of view
  • Willing to respect others and not judge
  • In touch with and able to cope with their own feelings
  • Interested in learning and personal growth
