Dove’s Domestic Violence Education & Volunteer Training

Have you have always wanted to learn more about domestic violence, and/or wanted to work with domestic violence victims and their children?  If so, please consider taking the Spring Domestic Violence Education and Volunteer Training.  It is required for anyone wanting to volunteer in any of the programs -- facilitation of support groups for adults and children, assisting with orders of protection, answering the hot-line, shelter coverage and more.  It is a worthwhile training for many professionals to gain knowledge and to be able to safely refer individuals to the Domestic Violence Program.

The training will take place in May in Decatur at Dove, 302 S. Union, Dean Simcox Conference Center.  This 40 hour training is approved by ICADV (Illinois Coalition Against Domestic Violence) and facilitated by Dove and other community agencies’ staff members. There is a $150 fee for the training and some scholarships available.

Individuals interested in making a difference in the lives of the women and children that Dove's Domestic Violence Program serves are encouraged to participate in this training.  Be an advocate for peace in your school, workplace or church.  This extensive training program is a must to volunteer in any area of the Domestic Violence Program.   Dove provides services to Macon, Moultrie, Shelby, DeWitt and Piatt counties.

Registration begins with a phone call interview to take place between Monday, March 9 and Monday, April 27.  Call 428.6616.

Registration is completed at a meeting on NOON on Tuesday, April 28, at the Dean Simcox Conference Room, 302 S. Union.  At that time you will need to fill out all the needed paperwork, show a photo I.D. and pay the $150 training fee. There will be a background check.

Must attend all training dates:
May 4 ending 20
1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
May 4, 5, 6, 7
May 11, 12, 13, 14

“have you talked to a trained domestic violence advocate?"

Have you ever had a victim of domestic violence try and open-up to you about their abuse and you not know what to say or how to handle it?...
