This 27-hour program that usually stretches over three weeks and is offered every fall. Participants who attend all sessions and receive an additional 13-hour on-the-job
training at SAFV qualify for the state mandate of 40 hours necessary to become a woman’s advocate. We encourage participants who fulfill this requirement to become a volunteer advocate. To see the topics at the 2016 community training, see the 2016 Training Schedule. If you are interested in attending our next annual training (usually offered in the fall), please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fall 2018: No Training will be offered in 2018. SAFV will be moving to interim quarters in September 2018 while our building will be renovated and expanded. However, please call Martina or Natalie at 907-747-3370 if you are interested in advocacy training. We can point you to an online option.
