The Rape Recovery Center celebrates a big milestone this week with the launch of our first ever Entrenamiento de Asesoria. This 40 hour advocacy training will certify new sexual assault counselors in the Spanish speaking community.
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.
Each January, the Rape Recovery Center hosts our first volunteer training of the year. This year, we had a dynamic group of nearly 30 individuals 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!
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, volunteers from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) of Utah spent nearly 10 hours reorganizing and cleaning the Rape Recovery Center offices. The Rape Recovery Center was thrilled to partner with HRC Utah for this inspiring project. These incredible individuals reflect the spirit of service that Dr. King lived his life by.
