Just by volunteering one hour a week…you can make a positive difference in the life of an older adult who is depressed, coping with life changes or suffering from the loss of a loved one.

The Senior Peer Counseling Program at Peninsula Family Service is offering FREE training for new volunteers. Our classes will teach you to be an active listener, recognize and respond to grief, depression and anxiety and work with diverse cultures.

Volunteer counselors receive FREE specialized training with the tools to provide confidential support. After completing training, counselors work one-on-one with participants to help them manage loneliness or social isolation, life changes, health concerns, depression, and loss of family and friends.

If you are 55 years or older, and have an interest in helping older adults in your community give Senior Peer Counseling a call at 650-403-4300 Ext. 4322 or 4389. Older adults deserve to live the best life possible.

Training in English: March 5th through April 3rd, every Tuesday and Wednesday morning from 9 am-12:30 pm.

Note: Training in Spanish starts April 27th – see event posting for details
