Volunteer Advocates Training

Our Deaf Survivors Center wants to announce that we are in the process of setting up Volunteer Advocate trainings. This will be a total of 50 hours and is for potential candidates to become Volunteer Advocates (VA). The Volunteer Advocates will work with Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault victims/survivors.  The trainings will be happening in the fall. 

If you are interested in signing up for the trainings, we will have an Information Session on July 7th.  The session will be held at the The Learning Center's ECC building at 6pm. This will give you the opportunity to come and learn more about the role of a VA and what the 50-hour training encompasses. After this, you can decide whether or not you are interested in participating in the trainings.

Refreshments will be provided.  Please reserve your seat in order for ODSC to have enough food for everyone. Please contact Joan Philip atjoanphilip@aol.com to reserve your seat.
