Support your Peers

The volunteer-run 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 March. 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.

 

If you would like more information or are interested in being a volunteer, please e-mail psatraining@genderadvocacy.org in order to get your registration form. You can also call us at (514) 848-2424 ext. 7431.
