We typically offer volunteer training twice per year. Our spring training, beginning in April, is open to all women, while our fall one, beginning in September, is only open to women experiencing marginalization based on their racial or socio-economic background, sexual identity or orientation, as well as learning and physical differences. The training takes about 80 hours, preparing you to become a support worker and volunteer at SASC.
