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 of October, running into November with half of the classes in Nucla and half in Norwood.

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.

The Commitment

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 can contribute.

The Costs

The training is free.
