Due to a very high interest in the Crisis and Sexual Assault Crisis Program volunteer opportunities, and our need to reduce training spaces during the pandemic, the wait list to participate in these programs has been temporarily closed as of July 31st, 2020.
Applicants who submitted applications before January 1st, 2020 have now all been contacted with the opportunity to attend a training group, and remaining applicants will be contacted as space becomes available. The waitlist will remain closed at least until the fall of 2021.
We feel extremely fortunately to have so much interest in our volunteer program, and hope to be able to accommodate current and future applicants as soon as possible. Please watch this space for future opportunities.
