Volunteer Training: Survivor’s Hope Wants You!



Survivor’s Hope Crisis Centre is running training for new volunteers with our sexual assault crisis program this spring.

The SARAH program, (Sexual Assault Recovery and Healing) is a program that provides emotional support, hospital accompaniment, information and referrals, and options for survivors and their loved ones following sexual assault. This program operates in the RCMP detachments in Lac du Bonnet, Beausejour, Oakbank, and Powerview-Pine Falls, as well as the Pinawa, Beausejour and Powerview-Pine Falls hospitals.

Training starts the first weekend of May (May 2-3), continues May 23 & 24, and then again June 13th.  Trainees must attend all weekend training sessions.  Trainees must also attend one evening session May 6 in Pinawa or May 19 in Powerview-Pine Falls.  The first two training weekends are in Powerview-Pine Falls this year.   June 13 is in Winnipeg at Klinic.

Anyone interested in training can call Holly at 204-753-5353, email holly@survivors-hope.ca , stop in at our Pinawa office Monday to Thursday (although it is hit and miss to catch someone there) or stop in at our Powerview-Pine Falls office at the Winnipeg River Learning Centre Monday afternoons.  The application process involves filling out an application form, two interviews, two reference checks, and three records checks (Child Abuse, Adult Abuse, Criminal Record/Vulnerable Sector).  Successful applicants will be invited to attend training.

Please forward this call for volunteers on to your community contacts, co-workers, friends, and family members who may be interested in the training.  You could also print out this poster and put it up in your part of the region.
