Volunteer training for The Harbor begins at 5:30 p.m. Jan. 20.

Discussion will focus on compassionate communication, crisis intervention, active listening, the impact of oppression on individuals and communities, domestic violence and the law and more. The training includes educators from the Harbor as well as experienced guest speakers from the community.

Volunteer opportunities are available at the shelter, during community events and for special projects. Some volunteers work in the client service office, Déjà Vu’s donation center and as ongoing advocates for individuals accessing services.

All volunteers will need to attend the first training Jan. 20. Training requirements vary depending on the type of volunteer position desired. Contact Chris, volunteer coordinator, at 503-325-3426, or stop by the office at 1361 Duane St, Astoria to receive a volunteer application packet.
