Training options

Thank you again for choosing to volunteer with STAND!

In order to make our training more accessible to people, we have redesigned it to be much more flexible. Rather than having "blocks" of training (9 weeks of full day trainings), we have modularized the training into 3 tiers:

  • Tier 1: Foundations of Family Violence and STAND! (10 hours)

  • Tier 2: Community Ambassadors (10 hours)

  • Tier 3: Peer Counselors (28 hours)

Each tier builds on the previous tier and opens the door for more volunteer opportunities. For instance, if you decide to take only Tier 1 and 2, you cannot work on the Crisis Line, but you can join the Speaker’s Bureau and help with administrative projects.. Once you complete all three tiers, you can take on any volunteer role in the agency and will have completed the requirements of the California Domestic Violence Counselor training.

In order to sign up for the training or if you have any questions, please email
