The Orange County Rape Crisis Center is accepting applications for our upcoming volunteer training that will begin on August 10. The Center seeks dedicated individuals with diverse backgrounds to volunteer as Community Educators.
Community Educators (CEs) prevent sexual violence in our community by presenting educational programs to students in local schools.
CEs present our “Safe Touch” child sexual abuse prevention programs in local elementary schools. This program teaches children about good, bad, and uncomfortable touches; to trust their instincts; how to “say no, get away, and tell someone;” and to always tell a trusted adult about uncomfortable touches. Volunteer training totals 42 hours and includes basic information about sexual violence and child abuse, services and resources offered by the Center, presentation skills, and protocol for responding to disclosures of abuse.
The deadline for applications is July 29. Training will begin Saturday, August 10, and continues on Tuesday evenings and Saturdays through September 17. We ask that CEs commit to presenting at least 4 programs each month in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro and Orange County elementary schools through the entire 2013-14 school year. This requires daytime availability on weekdays.
Volunteer applications and a full training schedule can be found online at www.ocrcc.org/ce.
