About us:

The Berkeley Free Clinic is a volunteer collective that has provided community health care and referral services since 1969. The Peer Counseling Collective (PCC) offers free drop-in and long-term counseling. Our counseling model is based on that of Carl Rogers and is client-centered, emphasizing the importance of feeling, listening, empathy, and unconditional positive regard.

We are currently accepting applications until August 1, 2013 for a training that will begin on Thursday, September 26, 2013. Our training has the reputation of being a self-exploratory learning experience that prepares its trainees well for counseling in a community-centered health model. Training lasts six months and takes place on Thursday evenings and Sundays. The ability to make a one-year commitment after training is required to volunteer within the PCC.

About you:

The PCC is currently recruiting volunteers who:

- Are ready to discuss all sorts of life challenges and problems in a non-judgmental way

- Are eager to develop new skills and learn about themselves in the process

- Are comfortable with a diverse set of people

- Are available to attend all classes and complete all training requirements

- Are ready to make a one-year commitment after completion of the training

- Want to be part of a collective

- Believe in health care for people, not for profit!
