Crisis Line Volunteers
Training is provided for all volunteer tasks. In the case of volunteers who deal with clients on the crisis line or in person, a state mandated 80-hour training is required. This includes enrollment for the course Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Intervention and 14 hours of on-site training at the DVSAC office and Nevada County Courthouse. At the end of this training, qualified volunteers will receive certification as a peer counselor. DVSAC offers this course twice a year. The next available training will be held in Spring 2013. Please call for information and/or enrollment.
