Training Begins Saturday, March 3 | San Mateo County
Freedom House now is accepting applications for its upcoming volunteer training sessions for those who would like to serve the organization as an Advocate or work directly with survivors as a Shelter Volunteer.

Advocate Volunteers attend a one-day session to learn about human trafficking in order to educate the public about the issues and how Freedom House is addressing the needs of survivors. To be considered for one of the limited Shelter Volunteer positions, candidates must submit a completed application and undergo a LiveScan background check. Shelter Volunteer trainees must complete the required 40-hour training course.
