Continuing Education Program for volunteers

I am writing with exciting news of the New Continuing Education Program for volunteers at the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center. In order to become volunteers you all completed 40 hours of training. I think this proves that you are all dedicated and excited to learn in order to best serve victims of sexual assault.

The Cleveland Rape Crisis Center would like to continue to offer you opportunities to learn and grow as an advocate. We will be holding trainings throughout the year on different topics that are relevant to your work as a Hotline and/or Face to Face Advocate. We will have experts come in and speak on a different topic every session.

The Continuing education program will also allow us time to notify you of changes as they occur to the program and to answer any questions you have about these changes. It also is meant to serve as a way for volunteers to socialize with each other.

I will continue to work to provide speakers that are interesting and relevant. I would love to hear from you with topics that you would like to learn more about.

All of the opportunities will be held at the Cleveland Rape Crisis Center, 526 Superior Ave.,1400, Cleveland, OH 44114.
