All of our volunteer Sexual Assault Counselors (SACs) complete a California State Certified Sexual Assault Counselor Training, designed to provide future volunteer counselors with knowledge, skills, and self-awareness necessary to respond to people affected by sexualized trauma. Specific topics covered in the training include the myths and realities of sexual abuse/assault, effects of trauma, medical issues, legal options, crisis intervention, and counseling skills. Throughout the training, we explore the connection between individual acts of sexual abuse/assault and institutional oppression such as sexism, racism, and homophobia.

With the limitations in place due to COVID-19, we are holding the summer training online:

Tuesdays and Thursdays 6pm-8pm, and Saturdays 10am-12pm from June 30 to Aug 29

Please send your completed application to volunteer@rapetraumaservices.org.
