Women who want to help victims of sexual assault can receive training at William Paterson University beginning in January.
The Passaic County Women’s Center will open a free training program for women who want to help local sexual and domestic assault victims.
Trainees will be required to take calls and be prepared to meet with assault survivors at Passaic County hospitals 24 hours a day. Volunteers are required to be on call for one year. They will be trained to offer victims emotional support.
Volunteers will need to complete 45 hours of training before they are allowed to participate in the program.
