Become a Senior Peer Counsellor

Each year Nanaimo Family Life recruits up to 10 seniors who are 55 years or older and have retired.  We select a diverse group of individuals of different ages and backgrounds. We look for your ability to commit to attending and completing the 12 week training program. Training consists of one 2.5 hour  session per week. The Senior Peer Counselor training is standardized throughout the province.

If you have skills you would like to offer or areas you would like to develop in, please call our offices as we would love to have you join us!
