“In my time volunteering with 2-1-1, I gained immeasurable skills and experiences that have furthered me, both personally and academically. I loved being able to help people one-on-one – it’s very rewarding to hear someone tell you “thanks” for providing a listening ear. 2-1-1 provides a truly unique opportunity for anyone who wants to pursue counseling or social work.”

-  Rachel K., Former Volunteer Counselor

“I’ve loved my time with 2-1-1 Big Bend. When I really needed help, my supervisors worked with me. I’ve learned so much that can be applied to the rest of my life. Supervising trainees was challenging, but helping someone else through that process was rewarding.”

   - Katie L., Former Volunteer Counselor

“Volunteering has helped me grow, not only as a person, but professionally as a social worker. I am more knowledgeable about the types of services available to people in need and I am more competent in dealing with people in crisis. 2-1-1 Big Bend does so much for the community and I am so glad I got to be a part of it”
