Confidential Sexual Violence Advocates - 2020 Volunteer Training
Union County Rape Crisis Center
There is an ongoing need for Confidential Sexual Violence Advocates (CSVAs) to respond to the center's 24-hour hotline, which may involve crisis intervention, providing emotional support, offering referrals, and/or providing in-person medical/legal accompaniment to victims of sexual violence. The Union County Rape Crisis Center offers a free, state-mandated training in order to equip volunteers with the knowledge and skills to assist victims of sexual violence. No prior experience/training is necessary.
At present, we are implementing evening training opportunities from September 8th through October 29th 2020. Below is the projected schedule for our Fall 2020 training:
