Get involved in the only LGBTQIA+ peer support helpline in the St. Louis region! We are a free, confidential, and identity-affirming peer support helpline service run by volunteers in the St. Louis LGBTQIA+ community, for the community. We work to serve and strengthen the St. Louis LGBTQIA+ community - by providing an empathetic listening ear, by connecting callers safely and reliably to LGBTQIA-affirming resources, and by increasing the visibility of LGBTQIA+ concerns, needs, and resources in the St. Louis region.

Please note that due to capacity issues, we are only able to accept applications from high-commitment volunteers who are able to do the work reliably and communicate consistently. In addition, for the sustainability of our organization, we require all volunteers to commit to working with SQSH for at least 6 months in order to consider your application. If you require an exception, please include an explanation in your application.

What to expect after you apply:
1. Our recruitment team will email you within three weeks of receiving your application to set up a 1-hour onboarding interview with you over Zoom.
2. During the interview, we will ask you questions to get to know your interests and skills better. We welcome you to ask us questions too to learn more about SQSH and what you want to get out of your volunteering experience.
3. If we mutually find that your skills and experiences are a good fit for SQSH, within two weeks after your interview, we will email you to invite you into your new role in SQSH and attach your onboarding assignments.
4. During your first Team Meeting, we will introduce you to the team, delegate tasks and roles, update everyone on mutual progress made since the last meeting, and wrap up with to-do items going forward.
5. In between monthly meetings, we will check in with you regularly to keep you accountable to the tasks you'd committed to. We appreciate your commitment to volunteering with SQSH and want to do everything we can to making being involved with SQSH as fulfilling for you as possible!
