North Tahoe crisis intervention training set for March
February 3, 2016
Tahoe SAFE Alliance is hosting an eight-week spring Crisis Intervention Training starting next month.
The nonprofit organization is recruiting men and women to volunteer and help the agency in its mission to end incidents and trauma of intimate partner/domestic violence, sexual violence and child abuse in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee.
All of the volunteers at Tahoe SAFE Alliance who work with participants in our programs must successfully complete the Crisis Intervention Training, which is offered biannually.
Interested parties can send an email to Jessica Brown, Crisis Advocacy Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please apply by Feb. 26. The training begins Tuesday, March 8.
Tahoe SAFE Alliance's Crisis Intervention Training is an intensive 69-hour course being held on a combination of Tuesday and Thursday evenings and three Saturdays.
The evening sessions will be from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Saturdays will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on March 12, March 19, and April 2. The classes will be conducted at the Donald W. Reynolds Community Non-Profit Center in Incline Village.

Topics will include: the basics of domestic violence and sexual assault, human trafficking, cultural diversity, mental health, child abuse, suicide, and crisis intervention techniques. Graduates from this course are provided with a certificate of completion and are recognized as competent crisis counselors.
Successful completion of the course will allow volunteers to contribute in any of Tahoe SAFE Alliance's client-based programs, such as the 24-Hour Community Help Line, the Children's Program, the Violence Prevention Program, and the Safe House Program. Unpaid internships are available in all programs.
