Are you committed to eliminating sexual violence against women, children and men in our community? Want to be a part of a team that supports sexually assaulted victims through a 24 hour crisis hotline and hospital accompaniment? The YWCA Greater Los Angeles needs YOUR help!
YWCA Greater Los Angeles Sexual Assault Crisis Services provides comprehensive services to survivors of sexual assault 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and we need the assistance of volunteers like YOU to continue providing these much needed services in the Greater Los Angeles area.
Volunteers will assist with the intake of calls from our 24 hour crisis hotline and provide accompaniment as a victim advocate to survivors of sexual assault being treated at one of our SART (Sexual Assault Response Team) hospitals. Volunteer Advocates also assist in educating the community about the emerging issue of sexual violence and are ambassadors of the YWCA GLA Sexual Assault Crisis Services.
All volunteers for the YWCA Greater Los Angeles Sexual Assault Crisis Services must attend and complete a 56. 5 hour Sexual Assault Certification training before becoming a Certified Sexual Assault Volunteer Advocate. We are now recruiting for our Summer 2018 training.The orientation for the next training will begin on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 at 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm. Location to be announced. The training will be held every Tuesday and Thursday in the month of June from 9:00 - 3:30 pm.
This is your chance to join the movement and become a Certified Sexual Assault Volunteer Advocate to help provide support to rape survivors.
