Centre Worker Volunteer Training

Volunteers are the heart and soul of KWC.  Centre Workers participate in a thorough training programme that has several parts.  Firstly, you attend an orientation session to learn more about the role (dates on the reverse of this flyer).  Secondly, there is an 8 session training programme with 6 half days, and 2 full days of training.  This training includes practical support skills and discussion of issues affecting women in our community.  Part three is practical – learning about the ins and outs of the Centre.  Lastly, you will take on a weekly shift at the Centre, supported by an experienced collective member.  Towards the end of the each year, we have a celebration to welcome the graduates to our team.

If you are interested in becoming a Centre Worker, either contact the Centre, or come along to the orientation training February 17th starting at 12.30 – 2pm.  Contact the Centre for more details.
