Training is an essential part of our volunteer program and all volunteers must complete the 30 hours of training 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 violence against women. Training continues throughout the year in the form of monthly 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, please contact Jen, our volunteer coordinator, at 705-840-2403, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
