'My volunteer experience has been very enriching and enjoyable! Being able to help the community, work alongside other volunteers, participate in workshops and group activities... all of this became a big and important part of my life. Some might say I take this experience too seriously, but I honestly think it has helped me to evolve and improve my ability to work as a team!'

'It is a true honour to be part of this team. I have moderated on many other chat apps over the years, but none of them can come close to this platform when it comes to professionalism. On the whole, is been not only a learning curve, but a humbling experience for me. It allows me to keep my TalkLife family safe.'

'Everyone was nervous too, but don’t worry, as there are a bunch of volunteers on TalkLife that’ll help you with the training and ways on handling users that needed help. If you needed help, do get in touch with either a Buddy/Moderator/Admin. So what are you waiting for?! Sign up and be a part of our Peer Support Group!'

'It can definitely be challenging but it’s a wonderful role and worth the work when I’ve seen that I’ve made a difference to the community.'

'I would say that if you are worried about not being able to use the app like a regular user anymore, please don't think so. You're free to share whatever you're going through and seek help yourself while being a volunteer alongside. The added benefit is that the rest of the volunteer team is extremely helpful if you need help or you're going through something as well. Another reason that I know that makes a lot of applicants hesitate is the video call. I would say that firstly you should be glad that the app requires identification from users seeking to be volunteers. Secondly, you're not required to keep your video on for the entire duration of the call and the admins are extremely polite and welcoming so there is nothing to worry about at all. I wish you the very best.'
