How to be an Advocate for Domestic Violence Survivors
The Junior League of the City of New York
The Volunteer Education and Training (VET) Program is unique because it not only focuses on maintaining and continuing to build upon volunteers’ skills, but it also addresses topics that uniquely impact women’s personal and professional lives. To name a few, “Supporting the NYJL’s mission through legislative advocacy, “Trauma-informed volunteering,” and “Practicing self-care to care for others,” are some topics that VET sessions have covered. This program allows the JL of the City of New York to ensure it has a trained and reliable volunteer force that exports the highest quality programs that meet the needs of their communities.
