Train to Be A Domestic Violence Victim Advocate
Each year, Waypoint serves over 2,600 victims/survivors of domestic violence with support and advocacy. Waypoint is in need of volunteer victim advocates to assist with answering the 24/7 Resource & Support Line, supporting victims in criminal and civil court proceedings, and providing emergency advocacy at area hospitals for victims of domestic violence. Additional support options are available, depending on interest and skill level. Volunteers are required to attend a free, 32-hour training that will be provided by Waypoint (20 online and 12 hours in-person). Attendance at all sessions is required prior to volunteering. Quarterly training dates are offered.
