Join Empower Yolo in Providing Hope and Ending Violence Today.
Volunteers are the lifeblood of our organization. Each year, Empower Yolo volunteers assist over 2,000 callers on our 24-hour crisis hotline. Volunteers staff the hotline, provide program support, and make up our Board of Directors. They are professionals, business leaders, and residents of our community. All advocates and crisis line volunteers complete an intensive 65-hour training program prior to working on the hotline.
Empower Yolo’s Peer Counselor Training is offered bi-annually in the Spring and Fall each year.
