The Women’s Center of Greater Danbury is looking for volunteers to perform crisis intervention at the center during business hours or from home when the center is closed. The spring 2017 dual domestic violence and sexual assault certification program is a 48-hour class.
The Women's Center is now accepting applications for the day and evening classes, which begin May 30th. They are held through mid-June. Applications are due by May 18.
The Women's Center says they responded to more than 2,000 sexual assault and domestic violence hotline calls last fiscal year.
Applicants must be at least 18 years old. Male and bilingual volunteers are encouraged to apply. There is a $50 fee to help defray the cost of the manual, with waivers available for qualified candidates. A background check will be conducted.
