The ASUMH Pipeline to Advanced Manufacturing, in partnership with Serenity Inc, will be holding a 40-hour advocacy training that will also include work and life skills classes. The training will take place September 17-21 from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., each day. The class is geared for any adult interested in advocacy and community volunteering opportunities. The morning class sessions will cover employment skills such as job searching, resume building, and interviewing, as well as life skills such as emotional, financial, and social resource building, communication, and goal setting. The victim advocacy sessions will be taught by Serenity staff members and will teach students about the agency’s operations, domestic violence, community outreach, and legal issues in the court room. Students will be trained on how to answer emergency hotlines as well as be provided the opportunity to job shadow. Serenity is a catalyst for change in domestic violence by providing caring client support and the life skills necessary for healthy independence, while expanding community understanding.
Class materials and lunch are provided each day. Classes will be held at Twin Lakes Church of the Nazarene - 1337 E 9th S. (Hwy 5) and at Serenity Inc - 1015 Hwy 62 E.
