Domestic Violence Services Network, Inc. (DVSN) is holding its next free Volunteer Advocate Training program at the Concord Police Department from September 25 to October 13, 2018. This 40-hour training session is provided at no cost to attendees and is being held on evenings and Saturdays to accommodate work schedules. The classes are scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6:30 to 9:30 PM, and Saturdays, 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. Classes will be held on September 25, 27, 29 and October 2, 4, 6, 9, 11, and 13.
Once trained, DVSN’s volunteer advocates provide direct service over the phone, at the Concord District Court, and at Emerson Hospital to people affected by domestic violence. The 40-hour training is designed to familiarize the volunteers with the many aspects of domestic violence and give them the skills necessary to provide confidential and appropriate services to DVSN’s clients.
DVSN is a community-based organization that works to combat domestic violence in collaboration with the police departments of its twelve member towns (Acton, Bedford, Boxborough, Carlisle, Concord, Lexington, Lincoln, Maynard, Stow, Sudbury, Wayland, and Weston), Hanscom AFB, the Concord District Court, and Emerson Hospital.
