New Horizons holds formal volunteer, intern, and community member trainings three times a year. The training is designed to help our volunteers, interns, and community members understand what our organization does, what each advocate’s role is within the organization, and what each of their programs entail. The advocates train all attendees on topics such as active listening, advocacy, crisis intervention, diversity, trauma-informed care, legal issues, and so much more. Below is the list of knowledge that is provided at the training:

Structure and history of our organization
An introductory education on the dynamics of domestic and sexual abuse
Our various programs
The important role of volunteers and interns
