Jewish teens are invited to apply for our first-ever Teen Talk cohort to learn how to provide social and emotional support to their peers through the anonymous Teen Talk phone app developed by JBBBSLA and Teen Line. This program empowers teens to support each other through the unique challenges they face, especially during the isolating days of a pandemic. Constituting 50 hours over four months, the training will teach participants essential tools with which to successfully support teens in distress through the app. Once trained, for the course of one year, teens will sign up for two-hour shifts throughout the month during which they will provide support from their own devices. The teen trainers will receive community service hours for both the training and weekly shifts. Due to COVID-19, training will be virtual via Zoom and held on Sundays from 1:00-5:00 PM, beginning on Sunday, February 21, 2021. We ask that potential applicants confirm that all of the following dates align with their schedules prior to applying: February 21 and 28 March 7, 14, and 21 April 11, 18, and 25 May 2 and May 9 read less
