Train to become a Rape Crisis Counselor with WMC’s SAAVE Program

Westchester Medical Center seeks volunteers to play a vital, supportive role in its Sexual Assault, Abuse, and Victims Empowerment (SAAVE) Program.

Volunteers are asked to commit to a year of service of monthly shifts staffing Westchester Medical Center’s 24-hour rape crisis hotline and assisting victims, as well as attending meetings and trainings throughout the year.

A 30-hour pre-service curriculum is required of all volunteers. This includes 10 hours of pre-work modules that volunteers may complete on their own.

In-person training will be held on Saturday, June 22 and Sunday, June 23 from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. at Cedarwood Hall on Westchester Medical Center’s Valhalla campus. Training is free and lunch and refreshments will be served.

All volunteers must complete onboarding and an eight-hour volunteer orientation program prior to volunteering at Westchester Medical Center. All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older; a valid driver’s license and bilingual skills in English and Spanish are a plus.

Call 914 493-3650 or email SAAVE@wmchealth.org for details and to register.
