Volunteer Opportunities

at Voices Against Violence

Advocacy Training: We provide an annual community advocacy training for new staff, volunteers, board members, community partners, and anyone interested in understanding the work we do to end sexual & domestic violence in Franklin & Grand Isle counties. The 30-hour training will prepare attendees to support survivors in our community. We will explore the roots and consequences of gender-based, domestic, sexual, & dating violence and stalking. We will also discuss our philosophy in serving survivors and providing support. Questions? Email Shannon at smcmahon@cvoeo.org.
