Jaunimo linija (Youth Line) has over 300 volunteers in Vilnius, Kaunas and Klaipėda, who help young people get emotional support. This helps some people choose life.
Emotional support volunteers provide emotional support by phone, email and online chat. A sincere conversation or letter can be the breaking point and encourage a person to choose life in a difficult situation. This does not require special education or work experience. Most important is a sincere wish to help, the ability to feel empathy and to listen.
Development volunteers organize various events and activities, help with design, programming and other tasks. It is a creative and open activity enabling the volunteers to implement their ideas and initiatives.
Volunteers make an amazing difference at Jaunimo linija helping to support people around Lithuania when they need someone to talk to.
Jaunimo linija welcomes and values each and every volunteer. Julija is one of the volunteers who is ready to help others.
"When a person calls, I feel like nothing else exists around me. I am dealing with the problem at hand and not thinking about anything else. It is just between that person and me. I can sympathise with someone who is calling. I can feel what they are feeling. I want to be useful, I want to help."
