We are always looking for compassionate individuals who are ready to take the next step in serving their community.

It is taught with the help of rescue personnel and mental health professionals. Becoming a volunteer requires the 36 hours of training, a three-month field-training program, plus mandatory 3-hour continued education classes once per month. Cost for the academy is $40.
