Volunteer Training

For University of Minnesota Students, Staff, and Faculty

All Direct Service Advocates & Violence Prevention Educators are required to attend our annual 40 hour certification training offered at the beginning of each spring prior to volunteering with us. The completion of this training not only prepares volunteers to respond to situations and provide education in relation to sexual assault, relationship violence and stalking, but also establishes the confidentiality necessary to support and advocate for those whom contact our office.


All Special Projects Volunteers are required to attend our annual 6 hour training offered each June prior to volunteering with us. This training provides attendees with a base knowledge of sexual violence in addition to information about The Aurora Center's services.
