On Becoming an OTR Volunteer
¬†At OTR, we believe that everything begins with the self. With training in self-care, mindfulness, active listening and empathic¬†communication plus related skills,¬†volunteers are being equipped to embark on their own mental wellness journey, while being¬†empowered to help others on their journey as well. Some of the training we conduct include:
- Self-Care 101
- The Power of Mindfulness
- Active Listening & Empathic Communication
- Basic Mentoring & Coaching
- Basic Counselling¬†
- Mental Health First Aid 101
- Group Art Jam for Self Expression & Team Bonding

In addition, volunteers who decide to take on the role of a Guardian Angel will be introduced to our Circle-Of-Care and Guardian Angels system as well as e-counseling, and effective seeker engagement. Our Guardian Angels provide support and co-journey with our Wellness Seekers on the OTR Circle-Of-Care. Seekers will also have the opportunity to give back to the community through participation and volunteering. They can become Guardian Angels themselves – with proper training and qualification from Over-The-Rainbow.
Together we can make a difference!
