This weekend, fundraisers and supporters of Kids Help Phone will gather across Canada for a 5k walk in support of the national support service.
In this episode, we talk to Jessica Pancoe, Manager of Eastern Ontario, Community Fundraising and Corporate Development at Kids Help Phone. We learn a little more about Kids Help Phone and why the Walk So Kids Can Talk event is so important. We also chat about some of the technology and applied AI that makes it possible for the volunteers at Kids Help Phone to help youth in crisis.
Kids Help Phone is Canada’s only 24/7, national support service. They offer professional counselling, information and referrals and volunteer-led, text-based support to young people in both English and French.
Walk So Kids Can Talk presented by BMO is the single largest day of action where communities across Canada walk in support of Kids Help Phone. This year’s Walk so Kids Can Talk takes place on Sunday, May 5, 2019 With your help, we can support youth mental health and well-being and ensure young people can always access the support they need, in the way they need it most!
