Victim Services Sexual Assault Program Volunteer Training
Sexual assault can happen to anyone. And when it does, knowing there is someone to turn to can make all the difference in the world for victims and their families. The Sexual Assault Program of Victim Services trains volunteers to offer such support to survivors of sexual assault in Dodge, Olmsted, and Fillmore counties. This required 40-hour course teaches prospective volunteers the skills necessary to become crisis line advocates.
The next training session will begin late July and run through August. Training sessions will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings (July 29th, 30th, and August 5th, 6th, 12th, 13th, 19th, 20th, 26, 27th) from 5:15pm-9:30pm. The training will be held in Rochester and is free to those wanting to become volunteers. For more information about becoming a volunteer with Victim Services, call Neil Dennison at 328-7276. Interested applicants must apply by July 25, 2014.
