History of TELL
TELL is a multifaceted, nonprofit organization that has been serving the international and business communities since 1973. Our services include free phone counseling and information, professional face-to-face counseling, and educational workshops.
“Tokyo English Life Line…May I help you?” In the nearly 30 years since TELL’s founding, the voices have changed. Those who founded TELL are gone, and the volunteers who staff TELL’s phones are a more diverse group. TELL now has professional face-to-face counsellors to back up the volunteers on the phones and community education programs that reach out to people instead of waiting to be called. But TELL’s core mission remains the same: to be there when someone calls, to listen, to care, and to help them find their own solutions to the problems that bring them to us.
