I volunteered at Teen Lifeline fifteen years ago and I can say with total conviction that this experience changed my life for the better. As a teenager, I felt relatively invisible and uninspired. This led to a general sense of angst. After finding Teen Lifeline, I learned new skills and discovered a way to help others. For the first time in my life, I felt a sense of self-worth. Over the next five years in which I volunteered, my confidence grew through this enriching avenue. Today, I'm a happy and well-adjusted adult who is living a very satisfying life. I know I could not have achieved this level of personal success without my experiences as a volunteer at Teen Lifeline so many years ago.
