WEAVE is fortunate to be part of a community that believes in volunteering. It is this passion that has evolved into Team WEAVE - our comprehensive volunteer program. Team WEAVE is designed to provide all potential volunteers with thorough knowledge of our programs and the many ways one can support victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking through their volunteering.
The first step to joining Team WEAVE is to complete an introductory application which can be found here.
Please let us know which WEAVE 101 and WEAVE 201 sessions you will be attending by RSVPing to our Volunteer Coordinator Nichoel Menicucci at email@example.com or 916.319.4907.
After you complete the initial application, you will attend a Team WEAVE Orientation. This is a two part training which provides you with an understanding of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking and how WEAVE works to support survivors of these crimes. The second part of the training focuses on the many volunteer opportunities available at WEAVE. Many activities can be started immediately while others require more training which WEAVE provides. At the completion of the Team WEAVE Orientation, you have an opportunity to focus your time based on your goals, sign up for additional training, and begin to give back.
Those individuals who wish to work directly with survivors of violence must complete the 70 hour Peer Counselor Training program. More information about this program is provided during the Team WEAVE Orientation.
Team WEAVE 101 and WEAVE 201 Orientation Sessions are offered throughout the year. Each session is three hours in length and you must attend the full six hours to join Team WEAVE as a volunteer.
