Want to make a change in your community? Now is your chance! Join our next training to become a Volunteer Domestic Violence Peer Counselor with STAND! For Families Free of Violence.

STAND! For Families Free of Violence is a nonprofit organization in Contra Costa County. Our mission is to break the multi-generational cycle of violence, promoting safe and strong relationships and rebuilding lives. But we can't do this work without you.

Our volunteers help our organization run - they staff our 24 hour Crisis Line, provide child care while parents are in support groups, make presentations in the community, and help with the day-to-day operations. Our philosophy is that volunteers are powerful agents of change from the community who are choosing to partner with us in order to end violence in Contra Costa.

Every volunteer role in the agency requires training. Our training is divided into 3 Tiers so that you can take as much training as you want, for the volunteer role you want.

Tier 1: Foundations of Family Violence and STAND! (10 hours)

Tier 2: Community Ambassadors (10 hours)

Tier 3: Peer Counselors (28 hours)

Each tier builds on the previous tier and opens the door for more volunteer opportunities. If you complete all three tiers, you can take on any volunteer role in the agency and will have completed the requirements of the California Domestic Violence Counselor training.
