On 7Cups of Tea, you first have to become a listener; which isn't hard. It's a small test you have to pass, and then you can start helping people online by accepting requests. You can also learn extra topics on the tap called "Training". You can see your progress and how good you're doing on the tap "My Impact". I really hoped this helped! :)

Through 7 Cups of Tea, a brilliant way to help others and gain skills at the same time. You will learn skills to be able to implement in your own life as well as helping others. It's a great thing to do for the community.

You can volunteer by clicking " Become A Listener" and you will answer multiple questions and take courses that will help you understand others.

Becoming a Listener here at 7 Cups is a great way to help people out. To become a Listener, you go through training. It is very easy to complete. Being a Listener has made me feel so happy.

There are a lot of sites where you can volunteer to help people, for example this one right here. Scroll to the bottom and under 'start connecting' there's a link called 'become a listener' and the rest is simple. You take a little course on listening skills, go through a mock chat, and then you are officially a volunteer trained listener here on 7 cups!

7 Cups. Beware, though, that the volunteer nature brings amateurs into the field, perhaps into cases where only professionals should intervene, but then again amateurs can be better than professionals, so it proves to be a gamble.

I did a personal support instagram gallery for people in the same battle as me especially teenagers (: I helped them by giving out random compliments and keep checking out anyone who's currently in any depression phase by private messaging them so that they know someone cares (:

Easiest way, become a certified listener here lol. I think I have helped many in my time here and I hope to continue making a difference here in the immediate future.

One of the ways that you can volunteer online helping people is on this site - to do this you can become a listener. There are probably other ways that you can volunteer online besides this site, but that all depends on the country you live in. One way to find out is to look up online volunteering and that will give you a selection of things you can do. Good luck!

Becoming a listener on 7 Cups of Tea is a great way to start helping other people! The website provides training and certification so you are not going in uninformed, and you get to talk to a wide variety of people. Online services are often simple to use, and you can set your own schedule rather than having to commit to volunteer hours in an agency.

I think that one can gain happiness genuinely by helping people - because people do talk kindly back to you for your efforts.

You can volunteer online on sites such as this one, forums, social media, online chats, or anything else. Any way that you can reach out to someone or offer your advice can be helpful to someone else. You could get started by posting about being able to help if someone needs or helping out someone that has stated they're having a rough time. You just have to make yourself known and available.

You could be working on 7cups for example :) There are plenty of options ranging from taking Youtube videos, writing online blogs or helping NGO's improving their website or social media accounts.

You can become a listener at 7 cups of tea! You can solve problems/answer questions at freerice.com. They had us do that in elementary school. If you are looking for a more direct way to help people online, you could become part of a technical/computer help team online. Or you could raise awareness to issues through social media, sign petitions, and share articles about topics you are passionate about with your social media community.

Starting here is a great place :) Signing up as a Listener is great, but you have to take time and patience to do this job otherwise it's not going to work out. There are many sites here on the inter-web, you just have to look carefully.
