Support your Peers

The volunteer-run Peer Support and Advocacy (PSA) program offers people the opportunity to access one-on-one, confidential peer support. Operating on the philosophies of harm reduction, non-judgement and empowerment, PSA volunteers are there to answer questions, help navigate resources, provide referrals and listen actively – be it in person, over the phone or online.

Are you interested in becoming a peer support volunteer for our Peer Support and Advocacy Program?

In order to become a volunteer, you will need to attend our training, beginning in October and ending in April. Training consists of practice sessions every other Wednesday morning, and workshops every other Thursday evening. You will get to gain some new knowledge on important topics like mental health, harm reduction, gender, sexuality, and racism! The practice sessions will allow you to get comfortable with the new skills and knowledge you gained from the workshop. You can register for the volunteer training here.

If you would like more information about becoming a volunteer, please e-mail psatraining@genderadvocacy.org or call us at 514-937-9714.
