As part of this commitment to young people, Kids Help Phone is launching a texting service trial.
The trial will launch later this fall and will be be available to young people in Manitoba.
Since we put so much time and training into each volunteer, we ask for a commitment of four hours per week for at least one full year. Crisis Responders see and respond to texts through our web-based online platform.
The texting service will be offered 24/7, so we’ll have shifts available around the clock for volunteers. In other words, young people text us using their phones and we see and reply to their texts online.
For our service trial in Manitoba, we’ll be using a program that has been extensively field-tested.

Below you will find information on the legalities of exchanging money for sex. The selling of sex in Canada is legal, but the purchasing of sex is illegal in all circumstances.
If this sound exciting to you, complete the online application to get started. Our volunteers need to be enthusiastic about helping people!
You can be a professional, student, teacher, retiree, or anybody else with an internet connection and a willingness to learn how to support people over text. The role of a Crisis Responder is to bring texters from a “hot” moment to a cool calm, and to help them come up with a plan to stay healthy and safe.
