Confidential Sexual Violence Advocates - 2021 Volunteer Training

Save to Favorites

Union County Rape Crisis Center

  • 165 people are interested

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.

Due to COVID-19, we are unsure if we will be able to hold our in-person trainings and are exploring virtual opportunities. If you are interested, please reach out to our office for updates. At this time, we are conducting Virtual Interest Meetings for those interested in becoming a CSVA with Union County Rape Crisis Center.

Basic Requirements:

  • Resident of Union County, NJ
  • 18 years of age or older
  • Valid U.S. driver's license
  • Personal (own) means of transportation (i.e. a car)
  • Informal interview (during business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.)
  • Attendance at all CSVA training sessions
