About

1 in 3 women in Utah will experience domestic violence in her lifetime. You can help connect these women to vital services in their local area by becoming a Volunteer Crisis Line Advocate.

Utah Domestic Violence Coalition will be holding our next Volunteer Crisis Line Advocate training in March 2017. This extensive 5 day training is designed to teach volunteers how to become an advocate for survivors of domestic violence. Once trained, advocates will take calls on the 24/7 statewide domestic violence crisis hotline -- the LINKline. Volunteers will take calls in their spare time, making this a uniquely flexable volunteer opportunity. We ask that prospective volunteers be available to attend all 5 days of training.

***Training dates TBD***

This training is a great way to gain valuable skills such as crisis intervention, safety planning, suicide prevention, trauma-informed care, active listening, an understanding of the dynamics of domestic violence, and much, much more. These skills are invaluable experience for anyone interested in entering the fields of social work, psychology, nursing, social justice, legal, law enforcement, etc.

If you are interested in helping some of the most vulnerable Utahn's, please reply to this opportunity to sign up for the training or for more information. You can contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Samantha Candland, at scandland@udvc.org.
