TEEN LIFELINE INC
May 5, 2011
My experience with Teen LIfeline goes back to when I was a teenager and had friends who called for help when they faced a crisis. As I became a professional educator, I was able to see the volunteers in action and provide resources to help them be as prepared as possible to support their callers. Now, as a classroom teacher, I rely on Teen Lifeline as a resource for my students. In every case, Teen Lifeline is there to provide resources, support, or just a friendly ear for kids who may not have anyone to listen or help.
Now I am watching one of my students who has helped by Teen Lifeline as she is inspired to give back as a voluteer. Watching this cycle inspired me to want to share my story with others to help continue their important work.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the teenagers they have helped. The callers tehy support everyday and the teen volunteers who learned invaluable tools and lessons through their volunteer experience.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
provide additional resources so they could expand their reach and continue their great work.
General Member of the Public & I have provided training for teen volunteers and referred teen callers and volunteers.
