Students can volunteer for the late-night listening service!

On The December 17, 2021

The Université de Lyon has joined forces with the Nightline organization and the Région Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes to offer a listening, support and information service for students from Lyon and Saint-Étienne with psychological difficulties. The listening service is looking for student volunteers for 2022. Apply now!


It is a listening service (via the phone or online chat) provided by students, for students. Volunteers from Lyon are available to listen to and discuss any topic with those who wish to do so, anonymously, confidentially, and without direction or judgment. It is available at night, from 9:00 PM to 2:30 AM: a time when we don’t have classes, when we try to sleep (or not), and when sometimes we just want to talk!

Life as a student can be challenging, and perhaps you have already been affected by or experienced the pressures and stresses of being a student – especially this year, especially with the uncertainties of the pandemic. Here at Nightline, we believe that talking is essential, especially when you are feeling down. So, we decided to set up a late night listening service to help students open up and talk about what is on their minds. And in order to provide them with the best possible service, our volunteers are all students!

Are you interested in listening and mental health in general?
Do you want to help other students?


You will be trained in active listening and will be able to answer the phone and online chat three nights a month at the Nightline center.You can also be driven home for free on the nights you volunteer.

Upcoming training programs in Lyon:

  • February 12-13 & 19-20, 2022
  • March 12-13 & 19-20, 2022
We ask that you do not discuss your application with friends and family, as volunteers must remain anonymous! Otherwise, people who know you are a volunteer may not be willing to call, which would be a real shame.
