Napa Emergency Women's Services Volunteer Training
40 Hour domestic violence counselor training
1141 Pear Tree Lane
Event Description




In February, Napa Emergency Women's Services (NEWS) will begin the next training series for those interested in volunteering to work directly with victims of domestic violence and their children.  It is a 40 hour classroom training, which takes place over a four week period.  This training is mandated by the State of California Office of Emergency Services. Volunteers who complete this training will be qualified to work at our confidential shelter, interact directly with clients, and have the opportunity to volunteer providing on-call services in responding to the scene of domestic violence incidents providing immediate support, resources, and information to the victim and their children.


For those who would like to volunteer to work with NEWS but would rather participate by working on fundraising or special events, the training is not required and they are welcomed and encouraged to contact NEWS at any time.


The training will be on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, starting on February 3 and ending on March 10, from 6-9pm, with Saturday classes, from 9:30-3:30pm, including a meal break.  The training will take place at the NEWS office, located at 1141 Pear Tree Lane. Advance registration is required.  Participants must be 18 years of age with a valid driver's license and be willing to undergo a background check. 


We do not discriminate on the basis of age, race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, language, or disability. To fully understand and complete the training, participants must have an advanced conversational level in English. To have more options to meet the needs of the community we encourage bilingual individuals to apply. All Training Participants commit to providing direct services to clients for six months and must be fingerprinted.  All volunteers are encouraged to take the training and provide crisis support based on the comfort of the client, which comes first.
