Domestic Violence Counselor Training
Submitted By SAVE
Domestic violence affects hundreds of thousands of women, men, and children each year. Due to state budget cuts, many victims no longer have access to resources that may help them or save their lives.
You can help by becoming a Domestic Violence Counselor certified in the state of California. State law requires individuals to complete 40 hours of Domestic Violence Counselor Training before they can work directly with domestic violence victims.
Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments' (SAVE) next 40 hour training session will take place in January/February in Union City. Please join us!
The dates are as follows: January 11, 18, 25, February 1, 8, 15, 22 from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please note that if you wish to attend, you must be available for all the dates listed above. Our training is reserved for applicants looking to volunteer with SAVE post-training. Applicants who are seeking the 40 hour training for other purposes are still welcome to attend, however spaces are limited. Please submit your application form as soon as possible.
