Looking to work with domestic violence survivors or just expand your knowledge?
Sign up for Human Options’ 40-hour state mandated workshop! Offered biannually in the Spring and Fall, this domestic violence series is ideal for those seeking employment or volunteer experience with a domestic violence organization in California.
Emergency hotline volunteers help answer calls to our 24-hour hotline and document each call. Emergency hotline volunteers are asked to do at least one, 3 hour shift per week. All hotline volunteers are mandated by the State of California to complete a 40-hour domestic violence awareness training before being eligible to volunteer.
For the safety of our volunteers, staff, and families we serve, we have currently put a hold on all volunteer on-boarding due to COVID-19. We hope to resume volunteer opportunities soon!
Upon completion you will receive a certification as mandated California Evidence Code Section 1037.1.
