Form your local Certified Listener Society (CLS) Chapters

Certified Listeners Society Headquarters

The Certified Listeners Society (CLS) Headquarters is in Ontario, Canada, and we are looking to sell our license to other non-profits and individuals to operate their local CLS chapters. 

By purchasing a license from CLS Headquarters, your local CLS Chapter will benefit from a comprehensive package of support. Our Headquarters team will handle key operations, such as registering URLs, creating and managing chapter websites, as well as recruiting, training, and managing your volunteers, so you can focus on providing mental health support to your community and promoting awareness. 

Benefits of the Local CLS Chapter Model

Partnering with us provides access to a proven model, comprehensive training, continuous support, community recognition, and the opportunity to transform lives in your locality. 

Why become a chapter 1

Who We Are

The Certified Listeners Society is a non-profit organization based in Ontario, Canada. We are a dedicated community of volunteers professionally trained to provide accessible and free emotional support services through live chats. The CLS team is committed to actively identifying individuals in need and guiding them through emotional challenges offering guidance, empathy, and mental health resources. 

In 2023, we provided close to 100,000 live chats to people across the world. 

Who We Support

Individuals seeking help are connected with volunteers who are trained to offer judgment-free support and resources. All Certified Listeners undergo screenings and extensive training to ensure they possess the essential skills and knowledge for providing effective emotional support. Chats are monitored by volunteer supervisors to ensure equity, transparency, and confidentiality. 

Why become a chapter 3

Our Mission

Provide emotional support to anyone who needs it.

We do not wait for individuals to come to us but rather go out of our way to find people online who need emotional support.

Our Vision

Bridge the gap between early intervention and mental health support. 

By providing early intervention, we assist in the development of self-awareness in order to educate the masses to seek professional therapeutic services as a lifestyle choice to develop a healthy emotional well-being early on.
