We just wrapped up our summer 40-Hour Domestic Violence Training! The collaborative training with The Riley Center welcomed 11 different agencies in either participating or presenting during this cycle.
This was the first cycle where I co-facilitated the entire training. I felt very nostalgic throughout the 5 weeks having once taken the training at W.O.M.A.N. Inc. volunteering, and then graduating to presenting on topics such as DV 101 and Working with Survivors in previous cycles. It was great to work with Jenny McKenzie again and to see all my former colleagues at The Riley Center. It’s even greater to be back at W.O.M.A.N. Inc. doing something that I love and that I am so passionate about. This is where my journey really began and took off! I’m always excited to meet new people wanting to join the movement and see the growth in our community. This was definitely a fun learning experience and I am already looking forward to the Fall!
W.O.M.A.N. Inc. would like to introduce our new group of volunteers:
Jennifer K. Gabriella R, Tammy, Genevieve, Jennifer L, Poonam, Yeji, Alma, Gabriela S. Mia, Hanna and Susie. Congratulations and Welcome to W.O.M.A.N. Inc!
