If you are interested in becoming a Help Center Volunteer Counselor, call 301-314-HELP to get details.
The application process to become a Help Center volunteer is highly competitive. Each semester we interview dozens of applicants for a limited number of spots. The application process includes an interview and, once accepted, volunteers must attend a mandatory evening workshop and training weekend.
If you apply to become a counselor it is mandatory that you’re available for the group dynamics and training weekend. If there is a religious conflict with these dates, contact the Help Center by phone to make arrangements.
