VolunteersNeededThere are many opportunities for volunteering with the Family Violence Program.  For those who wish to work directly with victims, you must:

Complete a mandatory intensive 20-hour training, which is spread out over 2½ weeks on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. Also, an additional 20 hours of training over the following five weeks.  Topics covered during training include domestic violence, sexual assault, crisis counseling, boundaries, statistical paperwork, orders of protection, and vicarious trauma.

Be able to commit to a minimum of 8 months service at a minimum of 4 scheduled hours per week.

If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, call 423-303-3515 to set up an appointment with the Volunteer Supervisor.

The next training will be announced soon.
