Telephone counseling service to begin training
Since 1973, Tokyo English Life Line (TELL) has provided a free daily telephone counseling service to the English-speaking community in Japan. Now, it is offering free training for volunteer telephone counselors for 2003. Anyone over the age of twenty-one years and fluent in English may apply. Over the course of 60 hours, volunteers are taught how to engage their callers and listen actively.
