Training schedule

Volunteering with Samaritans can be a rewarding and life changing experience. We welcome anyone who feels they have the potential to be a good listener – no previous experience or qualifications are required. Our comprehensive training will equip you with the skills you need to be an active, empathetic, non-judgemental listener. Volunteers must be at least 21 years old and be in a possession of a Hong Kong identity card.

Training programme schedule

Places on the course are provided on a first-come-first-serve basis. You’ll be invited to the next training programme if the one below is full or your registration comes in after 15 January 2018.

The volunteer training will be conducted in English and is free of charge. If you prefer to be trained in Cantonese, you may contact other suicide prevention organizations.
