Domestic Violence Advocate Trainings

The Riley Center wants you to become an advocate for our community! Are you committed to ending the cycle of violence? Year-round, we have wonderful community members involved in our organization, providing administrative, event, and skill-based volunteering who work to assist those fleeing domestic violence. In addition to these opportunities, we conduct trainings three times a year, which allows volunteers to work directly with our clients.
