Volunteers needed to assist victims of sexual violence

180 Turning Lives Around will conduct a 40-hour Sexual Assault Response Team (SART) training course for new volunteers from 6 p.m.-9:30 p.m. from June 7-30, Tuesdays/Wednesdays/Thursdays, at Neptune Township Municipal Complex, 25 Neptune Boulevard.

Basic requirements for volunteers to apply include that applicants must be eighteen years of age or older, have access to reliable transportation, possess a valid driver’s license, be willing to serve on an on-call shift basis, participate in an interview process, submit to fingerprinting and background checks, and successfully complete the mandatory training. 180 Turning Lives Around is committed to a culturally diverse team to better serve the community, so bi-lingual capability is helpful. Prior knowledge of or training in sexual violence is not required.

To obtain an application, visit www.180nj.org or contact Tina Morgan, assistant victim support program coordinator, at tinam@180nj.org or call 732 264-4360, ext. 4272.
