paid work at crisis help lines?

Hello!
I am currently writing a story where I need my protagonist to work for a crisis phone line, like Kids Help phone, or something like that.
However, the story needs it to be paying work, and most of the groups I've researched seem to rely on volunteers.
Does anyone know if thee are any groups that pay their phone counsellors? If it helps, the character is 18/19 years old.
