Help students in your community

Volunteer on the phone

At the heart of our association, the listening service is run by anonymous student volunteers in several student cities across France. If you would like to be trained in active listening and support your peers by phone or chat, this type of volunteering is meant for you!


Two volunteers

Are you a good public speaker and do you like to speak out for causes that are important to you? At Nightline you can become a spokespeople to promote the association's actions and break the stigma around mental health among the general public.

Would you like to share your experience with other students to help them get through their studies? Are you interested in peer support? Volunteer with Nightline and come talk to students about mental health on campus.

A complete training

All our volunteers are trained by other experienced students. Whether it is through active listening training or public speaking training, they learn to listen without judgment, according to the international Nightline principles.

The initial training, developed together with psychologists, has run for over 50 years in other European Nightlines. In addition to this, there is a year-round training programme, built around regular experience sharing with mental health professionals.

A rewarding human experience

Becoming a volunteer is an opportunity to give your time for others, to learn teamwork and to participate in the social life of the association. Weekend trips, discussion groups, themed evenings...joining Nightline means being part of a close-knit community of students from different backgrounds. It is also the opportunity to collaborate on professional projects such as prevention actions or annual campaigns with the association's employees.
