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 January 2017. This extensive 5 day training is designed to teach volunteers how to become an advocate for survivors of domestic violence. Once trained, volunteer advocates would take calls on our 24/7, statewide, domestic violence crisis hot-line- the LINKline. Volunteers take calls in thier homes, in thier spare time making this a uniquely flexable volunteer opportunity. We ask that prospective volunteers be available to attend all 5 days of training.

The dates and times of the training are as follows:

Saturday 1/14 9am-5pm Wednesday 1/18 5:30am-9pm Saturday 1/21 9am-5pm Wednesday 1/25 5:30am-9pm Saturday 1/28 9am-5pm 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, then please reply to this opportunity to sign up for the training or for more information. You can contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Jennifer Czech, at jczech@udvc.org.
