DOVER-FOXCROFT - Summers provide Womancare a great opportunity to provide our advocate training in a somewhat unique format. This 36 hour training consists of 12 three hour sessions offered in a variety of formats through out the year.
Womancare needs volunteer advocates to assist in answering our 24 hour helpline. During regular business hours calls are answered from our new office at 8 Mechanic Street in Dover-Foxcroft . Advocates staff the reception desk, meet and greet those coming into the building, take calls, and meet with anyone coming in for services related to domestic abuse. After hours, and on weekends and holidays, advocates carry a pager and respond to calls from their home phones.
The first two weeks of August the training with be offered Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 8:30 to 3:00. Training dates are August 5, 6 & 7 and 12, 13 and 14. Two sessions will be offered each day with a half hour lunch break. Structuring the training this way allows you to complete the training in 6 days over a two week period of time. If this format appeals to you and fits your summer schedule please call Womancare at 564-8165 today for registration information.
