Since its launch, the 'BullyingCanada' text-support line has seen a record number of youth reaching out.
PJ Ryan is Director of Public Relations and said bullying is harder to escape these days.
"In the last decade, we have actually seen an uptick in rates of bullying and how severe people feel it is. A lot of that is due to social media ... it used to be bullying would happen in schools or in clubs, and you could leave it."
Ryan said the SMS-based support line is up and running 24/7 throughout the whole year.
To keep up with the high demand of calls and texts, they are in need of more 'SMS-buddies' from all across Canada.
Those interested in becoming a volunteer need to be a dedicated adult with a passion for helping to solve complex issues.
Those selected will undergo comprehensive training and ongoing support to give the best service to youth across our country.
Applications can be submitted on the BullyingCanada website.
