PENQUIS - Beginning Tuesday, March 6, 2012, Womancare will offer 40 hours of classroom training designed to prepare one to provide support services to those struggling with issues of abuse. The training will meet each Tuesday evening from 5pm to 8 pm for 13 weeks. This training is provided at no cost to the participants and upon successful completion of the training participants will be eligible for 4 CEU's from the University of Maine.
Training topics include dynamics of domestic abuse, effects on children, relevant legal & social issues, safety planning, and crisis intervention. People volunteer for a variety of reasons. Some volunteer to be part of a community, and to give something back. Others may volunteer to test the field for a future career, to add to a resume, and to build skills important to a future employer.
Who should attend the training? We would welcome anyone wanting to learn more about the dynamics of domestic violence in order to become a trained volunteer advocate or to increase your knowledge in your professional capacity.
Please consider learning more about this issue and joining us in this very important work. I'm Ginger Hutchins, Volunteer Program Coordinator at Womancare, and I would love to talk with you about how you can make a difference. In this age of continuing budget cuts, volunteers rock! Volunteers will make it possible for us to continue to offer the services that are currently being offered. Please call me at 564-8165 for more information or to register.
