Teen Talk Training Application - Spring 2020

Teen Talk Training - Spring 2020

Training Overview

Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles (JBBBSLA) and Teen Line developed a mobile phone app called Teen Talk. Teen Talk is an anonymous iPhone app where teens can get support from trained teens, share inspiration, and learn what other teens are dealing with. High school students can join the Teen Talk Training program to learn how to provide social and emotional support to their peers. 

The Teen Talk Training is a 50 hour training where participants will learn the essential tools to successfully support their peers. Spring Training will take place at Collins and Katz Family YMCA in Brentwood and will begin on Sunday,  March 22nd. Training will be held weekly on Sundays between 9:00-1:00 pm. Please confirm that the following dates work with your schedule - 3/22, 3/29,4/5, 4/19, 4/26, 5/3, 5/10, 5/17, 5/24, 5/31. Teens are allowed to miss ONE training date with an excused absence.

 Once trained, teens will sign up for 2.5 hour weekly evening shifts where they can provide support at home on their own devices. Participants will receive community service hours for both the training and weekly shifts.

We are currently accepting applications from teens (Grades 9-11 preferred) who would like to be trained to provide peer support to other teens on the app. All applications must be submitted by 1:00pm on Wednesday, March 11th.  If invited, Interviews will be held on Sunday, March 15th from 9:00-1:00 pm at Collins and Katz Family YMCA.
