Our mandatory training program requires volunteers to become familiar with issues such as:

  • crisis intervention techniques
  • effects of domestic violence
  • sexual assault
  • elder abuse
  • the criminal justice system
  • bereavement
  • basic suicide intervention
  • community resources

Throughout the training period, there are ongoing assessments of volunteer candidates to determine suitability for the program and the role for which they are applying. Attendance is mandatory at all sessions as per program and role requirements.
