There is a $200 fee for the training.  Training fee and all needed paperwork is due by end of day, April 12.  Since we likely will still be abiding by COVID 19 Guidelines, please understand we may have to limit the number of participants in order for all to social distance for this training.

Individuals interested in making a difference in the lives of victims and children served by Dove’s Domestic Violence Program are encouraged to participate in this training.  Be an advocate for peace in your school, workplace or church.  This extensive training program will allow you to volunteer in many areas,  such as support group facilitation, shelter coverage, legal advocacy and children's services.  Dove provides services to Macon, Moultrie, Shelby, DeWitt and Piatt Counties.
