General information: Every year the SMRC hosts 3 advocate trainings. In Telluride there is one that takes place during the month
of September and one that takes place during the month of January. In the West End, a training will take place in the later half

The Reasons Why You Should Take the Training
Further your education: You will receive a solid introduction to several
fields, including social work, law enforcement, counseling, and the legal
system. It is a great way to continue your education and investigate fields you
may want to pursue
Get Involved in Your Community: It happens here, too! We are working to
create a community in which people are truly educated and available to help
those in need. There is a progressive network of agencies and individuals that
assist people who are faced with violence in their lives. Break down the myths
that exist around sexual assault and domestic violence.
One Person at a Time: You can help one person at a time. You will make a
huge difference in individual lives by being a good listener who is trained to
know the resources available in our community.
There is no commitment after you complete the training. After you become
qualified as advocate, you can volunteer as much or as little time as you want
to the SMRC. We are happy to provide the education and grateful for any time you
The training is free.
