What is does hybrid domestic violence training entail?
Our Domestic Violence Hybrid training is focused around preparing individuals to provide direct service support to survivors of domestic violence through the use of peer counseling, resources and referrals. Our training combines the use of online modules, online meetings, and intentional in- person activities. Together, these will be used as learning tools and community building strategies. This approach to training will speak to the tenants of different adult learning styles. Participants must have access to a computer, internet access, feel comfortable with online learning modules and take a flexible approach to learning! We also ask that participants come with the strength of vulnerability during our online meetings and in person sessions. For those without ongoing computer/internet access, we can do our best to make accommodations. If this applies to you, please contact Alicia at email@example.com
Online Modules open June 26th, 2019
In-person training begins Friday, July 12th, 2019
Volunteer opportunities and commitments:
Upon successful completion of training, all trainees will begin volunteering on our support line. We ask all volunteers to commit to at least four hours of service every week for one year. Volunteers are considered for Advanced Survivor Support positions after working for 3 months and demonstrating reliability and a strong understanding of domestic violence, peer counseling skills and our services. These opportunities are offered in addition to the ongoing support line shift.
Training Fee: $100 – $300. This sliding scale fee assists W.O.M.A.N., Inc. in costs associated with the training and assists in building our training scholarship fund. Training fees must be submitted before enrolling to our online course. If this is cost prohibitive, please let us know. Payment plans are sometimes available and require prior approval from the Educational Development Coordinator before the 1st payment is received.
Here’s what participants had to say about last cycle:
“I feel like I have learned so much through this training and, even as a survivor, it has broadened my understanding of domestic violence.”
“I’m grateful for my cohort, and everything they brought to the table.”
“W.O.M.A.N., Inc. did so amazing making me feel at home and welcome to the community.”
