How to Become a Volunteer

Volunteer Training

Training is an essential part of our volunteer program and all volunteers must successfully complete our Volunteer Training Program to become volunteers with our centre. Training is provided to give potential volunteers the information and skills necessary to handle crisis situations, make referrals to services available in our community, provide accompaniments to the hospital, police station or court house, as well as knowledge surrounding the issues of Gender Based Violence.

The first phase of Volunteer Training is now available for online at:

Course Access Code: D4ZFV-XQF52

The second phase of the Volunteer Training will require participation in 2 (3 hour) in-person training sessions. Theses training sessions occur on a monthly basis or as needed depending on participation.

Additionally, on-going training continues throughout the year in the form of Volunteer meetings, special presentations or workshops at the Centre or with local agencies. We welcome all women from all walks to join our team of volunteers and are currently expanding our training to incorporate new volunteer programs available to our volunteers.

If you are interested in becoming a member and volunteering with us and would like additional information, please contact Jen, our Volunteer Coordinator, at 705-840-2403, or by email at
