Direct Service Volunteer Training Information

Direct Service Volunteer Training

All staff and volunteers who will be working directly with survivors or their children are required to complete our crisis intervention training program.  This training is offered twice a year; it is comprehensive and prepares volunteers to become a member of the following programs:

  • Response Team
  • Shelter/HelpLine
  • Children & Youth
  • Support Group

For more information about each of these programs and our non-direct service programs, visit the Volunteer Opportunities page. Volunteers are trained for only one program at the training.
