First Week of Volunteer Training.


An amazing group of new volunteers started training for the in-house and crisis line this week. At our first session we learned about each other, about Victoria Women’s Transition House, viewed It’s Not Like I Hit Her, did a simulation excercise to walk in the shoes of women trying to leave abuse, and had a great discussion!

Here are a few things that our wonderful volunteers do to replensih their energy: Yoga; Run; Swim; Journal; Listen to music; Sail; Bike; Take a bath; Get a massage; Be with their pets; Sit by a fire; Dance; Sing in a choir; Be in nature; Talk; Spiritual work; Hike and Read.

Books that were recommended for reading: Three Cups of Tea; Into Thin Air; Half the Sky; What is the What?; The Onion Girl; The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo; Eat, Pray, Love; and The Power of Intention.
