Volunteer Training Info

Training Options

Thank you again for choosing to volunteer with STAND!

In order to make our training more accessible to people, it is divided 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 Peer Counselor certification.

In order to sign up for the training or if you have any questions, please email volunteer@standffov.org.

(Note: If you are taking the training for purposes other than to volunteer with STAND!, please contact volunteer@standffov.org for information regarding fees and registration.)

Upon completing all 3 Tiers you will receive Certificate of Completion as a trained Domestic Violence Peer Counselor per CA Evidence Code 1037.
