Three times a year the Rape Recovery Center hosts a volunteer training to prepare new advocates as they join our team. This past Saturday we had a dynamic group of individuals, pictured below, complete this training. Over two weeks these folks spent 40 hours learning about crisis intervention, trauma-informed care, and the resources/systems survivors will interact with throughout their recovery. Now that they are certified Rape Crisis Counselors, we are thrilled to add these compassionate individuals to our volunteer ranks!
“The training was an incredible opportunity and I learned so much. My main takeaway is to really understand the complexity and nuance of every survivors situation, and to just be their person for that moment. The facilitation was excellent and I feel as though I’ve learned so much about excellent facilitation and teaching.” - Training Participant
