7/15/2013 10:31:00 PM Victim Services Sexual Assault Program to hold 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 in September. Training sessions will be held on Tuesday & Wednesday evenings (Sept. 3rd,4th,10th,11th,17th,18th,24th, and 25th ) from 5:15pm-9:00pm. We will also meet Saturday, September 14th from 8:00am- 1:00pm and Saturday, September 28th 8:00am - 1:00pm. 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 August 23rd, 2013.
