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).

If you are interested in the Advocate Training or other volunteer opportunities, please call our office to sign up for a general volunteer orientation, 831-426-3062!
