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.
