Have you wanted to volunteer, but it always seems as if you don't have the time? If you self identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer or genderqueer, and have 5 hours per month to spare, then check out the Fenway Health Peer Listening Line and GLBT Helpline of Fenway Health.
The Peer Listening Line and GLBT Helpline of Fenway Health provide information, referral and support to queer, lesbian, bisexual, gay, transgender and genderqueer callers through their anonymous toll-free nationwide lines.
Fenway Health’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Helpline and The Peer Listening Line are anonymous and confidential phone lines that offer gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender adults and youths a safe place to call for information, referrals, and support.
In addition to issues like coming out, HIV/AIDS, safer sex and relationships, trained volunteers also address topics such as locating LGBT groups and services in the caller's local area.
They are especially in need of volunteers who are people of color, women, bisexual, transgender and genderqueer. Fenway Health accepts volunteers 16 years of age and up.
If you are interested in volunteering, email Joanna Wisch or call 617.927.6242 for a volunteer application.
