Rape Crisis Center Offers Assault Counselor Training

See Rape Crisis Center’s video PSA here.

Every 107 seconds, someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. Last year, the Monterey County Rape Crisis Center (MCRCC) assisted 900 survivors of sexual assault by providing crisis intervention, individual and group therapy, and advocacy.

Today, MCRCC needs your help. MCRCC is looking for compassionate volunteers to become sexual assault counselors. Volunteers will be trained to answer MCRCC’s 24-hour crisis line, accompany survivors of sexual assault to forensic exams and learn about other community resources to assist those who are in crisis. The 47-hour Sexual Assault Counselor training for new volunteers will begin on March 17 and conclude on April 17, 2018. Volunteers must be 18 and over to apply and bilingual volunteers are both needed and encouraged to apply. Please join the movement to end sexual violence in Monterey County by applying today!

Applications to become a sexual assault counselor are available at www.mtryrapecrisis.org. Applications will be accepted until March 7th. For more information, please call our Monterey Office at 831-373-3955 or our Salinas Office at 831-771-0411.
