Marine Parade Family Service Centre (MPFSC) is looking for volunteers to train their next batch of cyber counsellors. They are running a online youth chat counselling program called 'metoyou' and has approached AA to help find suitable volunteers.
Their website is: metoyou.org.sg
Volunteers would need to undergo a selection interview to determine suitability. And selected candidates will undergo free training in basic counselling skills.
The requirements is as such:
1. Volunteers must be at least 21 years old
2. To be able to commit at least 1 year after training (once per week - during weekdays from 2-6pm @ MPFSC)
3. Must complete all training
On completion of the 4 modules, a Certificate of Attendance will be awarded after fulfilling 100 hours of Cyber-Counselling. The volunteer will be certified as a Cyber-Counsellor (Para-Counsellor) which is accredited by Marine Parade Family Service Centre after a year practise on-line.
