SASS Core Advocacy Training – September 2022

This training certifies volunteers, staff, and interns to provide confidential advocacy to survivors of sexual violence under the supervision of SASS.

In addition to online, self-directed material, SASS is hosting 3 in-person, skill building sessions.* Volunteer applicants who meet SASS’s general requirements related to availability, experience, and commitment to the organization’s mission will be invited to participate after a brief screening interview. At this time, we are unable to offer volunteer opportunities to those who have received our services within the past two years.

Below are the dates for in-person sessions:
– Saturday, September 10th from 10am-1pm
– Saturday, September 17th from 10am-1pm
– Saturday, September 24th from 10am-1pm

*Please note that attending these sessions is required, but accommodations might be possible on a case-by-case basis. While SASS cannot guarantee a volunteer placement to all training participants, we are excited to offer this training and education opportunity to the community.
