Volunteer Training

In order to interact with directly with clients, volunteers are required to complete a 40-hour, state-mandated domestic violence training. Participants will learn about confidentiality, the impact of domestic violence on children, safety planning, active listening and women-centered advocacy. Once trained, volunteers will receive at least 10 hours of additional training specific to their volunteer interest(s). 

The next 40-hour training will occur in 2015.

To sign up for the training or for other direct service volunteer inquiries, please call
