    WHAT IS THE TIME CMMITMENT? We realize that volunteers have lives outside of Mountain Peace Shelter. For that reason we are flexible and will work around your schedule and the time you are able to give. We only ask that new volunteers commit to one year of service with the organization.

    WHAT ABOUT TRAINING? Trainings are free! All crisis line and direct services volunteers are required to go through a 20-hour training course on the fundamentals of domestic violence. Volunteers receive continuing training through monthly in-services. Client Support volunteers are strongly encouraged to attend monthly in-services and are required to attend the quarterly crisis line training at least once before answering the crisis line. Volunteers also receive regular announcements about other valuable trainings they may attend.
