We are so excited that you are interested in volunteering at Safe Haven. Volunteers play an important role in our organization.
Because volunteers serve at our office and within the shelter, interacting directly with our clients, there is a rigorous training and onboarding process for all volunteers. We do this to help support you in your role and to ensure we always deliver trauma-informed and client-centered services to victims and survivors of domestic violence and/or Human Trafficking.
Volunteers are required to complete a total of 12 hours of training prior to starting in a volunteer role. This includes attending the 3-hour Domestic Violence & Anti-Trafficking Seminar (upcoming dates can be found here). After you have completed the seminar, you then must attend New Entry Training. Registration for the New Entry training requires an application and an interview.
This training takes place across two days, 12:00pm-4:30pm each day. The upcoming dates for New Entry are:
- Wednesday, February 21 & Thursday, February 22
After completing Domestic Violence Seminar and New Entry, you will also receive on-the-job training specific to your role. This training takes place during your normal volunteer shift.
