We are now hiring individuals looking to share their hobbies and interests with elementary age students during the school year, from 3 - 6 pm Monday - Friday.  You can truly make a difference in a child's life! 

Individuals must have a high school diploma and there is opportunity for advancement.

 Imagine being a mere 14 years old and losing your uncle to suicide.  It would be a devastating event, and extremely difficult to understand as a child.  For Elizabeth Matoushek, a member of our Life Crisis team, losing her uncle determined her path in life.  Just one year later, after struggling to try and figure out why he took his own life, she turned that curiosity and loss into seven years of volunteer service at Kids Under Twenty-One (KUTO).  Thus began her quest into the field of suicide prevention and intervention.
