HearMe listeners are just like you! However, they undergo extensive, ongoing training on active listening, empathetic conversations, and one-on-one peer support through text-based conversations.
HearMe staffs listeners based on the demographics, backgrounds, and industry expertise of our members so that every member gets matched with a listener who has lived in their shoes. Our Community of Listeners is made up of a diverse and global group, who strive to be the best listening support for others. All HearMe Listener’s are provided with comprehensive foundational training and ongoing workshops to help build skills for community members.
Our Community Directors and Program Administrators continually monitor listener feedback and perform chat audits to ensure that our members are always being matched with the highest quality listener.
