The YWCA Greater Los Angeles Sexual Assault Crisis Services provides comprehensive services to survivors of sexual assault 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and we need the assistance of volunteers like YOU to continue providing these much needed services in the Greater Los Angeles area.
Volunteers will assist with the intake of calls from our 24 hour Crisis Hot-line and provide accompaniment as a victim advocate to survivors of sexual assault being treated at one of our SART (Sexual Assault Response Team) hospitals. Volunteer Advocates also assist in educating the community about the emerging issue of sexual violence and are ambassadors of the YWCA GLA Sexual Assault Crisis Services.

The training will be held every Tuesday and Thursday evening in the months of September - October 2018 from 6:00 -9:00 pm.
