Spectra Helpline is a non-profit, multicultural organization providing free, caring and confidential distress lines and support services in several languages for the diverse population of the Region of Peel and surrounding area.

The Project 

  • As a Helpline volunteer, you will support callers on our 24/7 Helpline, crisis/suicide and elder abuse lines.
  • Spectra Helpline will provide extensive training to prepare you for your role at Spectra. You will learn how to give your whole attention to each person you’re supporting, and empathize with their feelings without being overwhelmed yourself.
