People can come to you with a story, anonymously and safely. They feel heard, supported and sometimes they even gain insight into a problem or question. You become an expert discussion partner through good training and guidance. Volunteering that makes you a wiser person! One of the 26 locations of the Luisterlijn in the Netherlands is located in Den Bosch. Who we are looking for: You have a genuine interest in another person, you do not make judgments and you have an open attitude. You are currently stable in life and you would like to develop further in the field of listening art and conversation. Because you are entrusted with a lot as a volunteer at the Luisterlijn. Sometimes subjects you didn't even know existed. Not an easy job, but certainly not a boring one either. Every conversation is different. What we ask: Working at the Luisterlijn requires space in your head, heart and agenda. You work approximately one shift per week of an average of four hours. You can schedule the services yourself. Once a month you listen at night to people who can't get to sleep. The night shift naturally demands more from you than a day shift.

In addition to the telephone assistance service, the Luisterlijn Den Bosch is also looking for volunteers for the chat services. Before you get started, you will receive a thorough training that is mandatory. In addition, there is an instructive group and training meeting every month where your presence and commitment are expected. The Listen Line strives for a long-term relationship with the volunteer of at least several years. This is partly due to the investment in training and supervision. In Den Bosch you can perform the services on location, but home working options are also negotiable. However, it is important that you have a suitable, closed space to make work at home possible. What we offer: Intensive, but enriching and meaningful. That is how most volunteers experience their work. It is very satisfying to be able to mean something to someone else. What is at least as important is that you can learn a lot through volunteering itself, it enriches you as a person. Thorough training and guidance: Before you get started, you will receive training. The training consists of 12 to 14 modules (in total approx. 32 - 40 hours of training spread over 6 to 14 weeks). During the training you will also be guided in practice by an experienced volunteer. During the training process there are a few moments when we together look at whether the work and the organization really suit you. After completing the training, you will start working independently. You will also receive training and personal guidance afterwards. Because we invest heavily in our volunteers with the training courses, we aim in principle for a long-term relationship with the volunteer of at least several years. We also offer an allowance for travel costs. Sign Up: Are you excited? We would like to hear from you! Register on our website www.de Luisterlijn.nl and we will contact you as soon as possible.
