The new Samaritans Volunteer Training will be held in February/ March 2013. The training consists of 9 sessions with 32.5 hours in total. It is conducted in English and totally free of charge.
What we require from you is your dedication, commitment and compassion to learn how to be a good listener and to help save and rebuild one’s life by giving emotional support to depressed and bereaved people.
Volunteering with Samaritans is a rewarding and life changing experience. We will equip you with all-rounded skills to be an active listener and to connect with local community and care for the needy.
