Freedom House Volunteer Training
Begins on Saturday, September 10, in San Mateo County
Have you considered becoming a modern-day abolitionist? Would you like to personally provide love and support to survivors at The Monarch shelter for women and The Nest for adolescent girls? If your answer is YES, now is the time to learn more about the Freedom House volunteer program and receive an application to apply for the fall training. For details, please contact Tina@FreedomHouseSF.org.
Advocate volunteers represent the organization throughout California as they build awareness about our mission to bring hope, restoration and a new life to survivors and educate the public about human-trafficking issues. Advocates will engage with civic organizations, businesses, faith-based groups and students, and participate in community events. The eight-hour advocacy class is being held on Saturday, September 10.
Shelter volunteers, who want to make a direct impact on the lives of survivors and work in the two shelters, must submit a completed application before August 19. Upon review, finalists will be invited for in-person interviews and to present a LiveScan background check. Once selected, shelter volunteer trainees will participate in the required, 40-hour course. These volunteers begin their training by participating in the full-day advocacy class on September 10. Afterwards, these candidates attend six more classes:
September 13, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
September 15, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
September 17, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
September 22, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 pm.
September 24, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
October 1, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
