Counselor Advocate Training
The Sexual Assault Crisis Counselor Certification Training program is a 40-hour training program leading to certification as a volunteer Counselor/Advocate.  You will gain the valuable training and experience needed to provide crisis intervention and advocacy to sexual assault survivors and their loved ones through hotline calls, hospital and police accompaniments.

Requirements: Volunteers must commit to at least 6 months of service. This includes 2 hotlines shifts per month. Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older and have reliable transportation for hospital, police and court accompaniments. To maintain certification, volunteers must attend four hours of in-service training per year and attend annual supervisions.

How: Complete our application and reference form. These forms, along with a pre-training interview, will assist us in assuring that your interest coincides with our needs. Please complete the volunteer application and contact Rebecca to schedule an interview.
