RVAP has three different volunteer training tracks: Direct-Service (in-person advocacy), Prevention Education (University of Iowa & K-12 / community), and Rural Based (volunteering in Cedar, Iowa, Des Moines, Henry, Lee, Washington, & Van Buren Counties).
All prospective volunteers attend an online 10-hour foundation training along with an additional, in-person 22 hours of track-specific skills training focused on either direct service or prevention education.
Trainings are facilitated by RVAP staff every February, June and September. However, trainings for our rural volunteer program vary throughout the year depending on the number of rural based applicants. You must be present for all training dates. There are no make-up training sessions offered.
