General Volunteer Application



Victim Assistance Training (VAT)

Accepting applications for the Fall 2017 VAT. Deadline to apply is August 4th.

Women’s Center–Youth & Family Services normally offers the Victim Assistance Training (VAT) course twice per year. This is a 67.5 hour state certified training for issues surrounding domestic violence, sexual assault and youth homelessness. Our volunteers assist in providing support, assistance and resources to survivors and/or significant others.  All services are offered to men, women and children in English, Spanish and a variety of other languages.  Both male and bilingual volunteers are encouraged to apply as well for this training in order to help us better meet the needs of our diverse community and clients. Successful completion of VAT is required before volunteers are permitted to work directly with clients. All training sessions must be attended for certification and volunteering.

Submit your application by mail or bringing it to our main office. You can also email it to Vanessa Fuentes, Volunteer Specialist at with the subject line: VAT Application.
