New Staff Role: Chat Buddy! - November 13th 2020, 04:59 PM

Hello, everyone!

I'm excited to announce a new Staff role: Chat Buddy! This is a great entry-level volunteer position for anyone who's looking to be more involved with our community, especially in the Chat Room.

Chat Buddies create a welcoming environment in the Chat Room by greeting members, including people in discussions, and participating in fun Chat Room activities. Chat Buddies may also be asked to lead the occasional Facilitated Chat Room Discussion (FCRD). Chat Buddies should be friendly, outgoing, and knowledgeable in terms of the Chat Room and how it works.

Requirements:
Have been registered for one month OR have been active in the past month if recently returned to TeenHelp.
Have consistent presence in the Chat Room.
Have not had an application declined in the last month.

Chat Buddies will work with our Chat Officer, Sarah (eaty).

You can view the application here!

So uh, what’s the color?!

On a real note, this is a very exciting announcement. It’s particularly exciting for me because I used to run facilitated discussions, and had a lot of fun. As soon as I read the post, my brain immediately was flooded with FCDR ideas.

Just letting some people know that you can not be a chat buddy and be rude and just leave the conversation in the middle of it with out any closure statement of some sort. Also, you can't say I'm not feeling well so I can not talk to you. Also, you can't be touchy in that you snap easily at people.

I sent it twice. I put PSY said I would be great for this {: So hopefully it helps me get it and that I'm in masters right now to become a therapist.

I am not rude. Even if I'm not feeling well I am not going to tell some one that rudely. I will do it professionally which means wrapping up the conversation before leaving and if they still need to talk then offering them to speak to another member that's on chat to talk to . I also won't be unprofessional and say everything triggers me when to be any staff on here, you can not be triggered easily. You can not just switch almost every conversation on the chat because you are triggered by everything. You have to be willing and able to talk about mental health topics.

Thanks Rob {: I put a lot of effort in to it. I really want to be the change that needs to happen here. I want to help others and lead discussion on mental health topics. It will help to bring awareness and to help people feel less alone.

This sounds like an awesome position! Can't wait to get to know all of our new Chat Buddies and see the return of FCRDs!
