Certified Advocate Training begins April 2017!
We are hosting a combined training this year! The training is for individuals interested in becoming a Volunteer Youth Advocate and/or a Volunteer Advocate for (Adult) Survivors of Domestic Violence.
The training prepares you for the following positions;
- Crisis intervention on our 24-hour domestic violence hotline
- Legal advocacy in family and criminal court
- Support group co-facilitation : Adult & Teen Groups
- Teen Workshops (I Decide/Sex Ed. and/or Healthy Relationships Workshops)
NOTE: We ask that you make a 12-month commitment to help with the program once training is complete. Most Volunteer Advocate positions require a 6–10 hour a week time commitment (depending on the position you select).
