Our All-Options Talkline is staffed by dedicated and well-trained volunteers. Trainings for new Talkline Advocates are held 2-3 times each year; we are currently recruiting people based in Bloomington, Indiana. If you are interested in applying to become a Talkline Advocate, please fill out an application!
Once accepted into the program, volunteers complete 40+ hours of training in the All-Options model of peer counseling and learn how to facilitate judgment-free, caller-centered conversations around the full spectrum of experiences with pregnancy, parenting, abortion, and adoption.
In addition to the initial training, Talkline Advocates continue to meet on a monthly basis for ongoing support, community, and education. They also participate in summer and winter retreats that focus on community-building and skill-building. Advocates commit to work three 4-hour shifts per month and to serve on the Talkline for at least one year.
