Volunteer Training


33- Hour Paraprofessional Anti violence Training

SPAN’s paraprofessional volunteer training incorporates crisis intervention skills, dynamics and issues of abuse, and developing tools to challenge the various systems of oppression.

Throughout the training volunteers develop active listening skills and practice ethical communication while learning about SPAN’s programs, procedures and philosophy in order to support survivors and their families in the best way possible. All Trainees will attend five sessions of generalized training and two sessions of specialized training in the area they have chosen.

Our training has an online component- similar to an online class.  We have computers with internet access available throughout training.

We offer our Anti violence Volunteer training three times each year in February, June and October.
