Volunteer Crisis Intervention Advocates Needed at One SAFE Place

 

Redding, CA (December 20, 2016) – One SAFE Place is recruiting community members who wish to become certified crisis intervention advocates for those who have experienced domestic violence and/or sexual assault.

 

“Ideal candidates will have a compassionate heart, the desire to support those in crisis, and a firm commitment to making their community a safer place for all,” says Anna Hutchinson, One SAFE Place Volunteer Coordinator.

 

Beginning on January 17, 2017, ADJU-106: Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Education and Training will take place at Shasta College on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00-7:50PM.

 

This semester-long course is perfect for those who are interested in careers in education, social services, and public safety, and for those who wish to become crisis intervention advocates for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Upon completion of the course, participants are eligible to volunteer at One SAFE Place in a number of service areas, including direct advocacy and case management for victims of abuse. Regulated by the California Governor’s Office of Emergency Services, this course also includes state certification for those approved to volunteer with One SAFE Place, as outlined in Penal Code Section 13835.10.

 

Enrollment in ADJU-106 is now open and should be completed through Shasta College Office of Admissions: http://www.shastacollege.edu/Admissions. Estimated cost of enrollment is $225 based on published Shasta College Fees and Refund Policy.

 

As a special incentive, those who complete this course may be eligible for a full refund of the course fees if they are subsequently accepted as a volunteer at One SAFE Place.
