Common Wealth Charlotte depends upon volunteers to enter into the lives of our working poor. In order to achieve this goal, we offer volunteers the necessary training to provide trauma-informed care to our clients.
Volunteer training includes shadowing our one-to-one instructors in counseling sessions, and we provide detailed training materials for each volunteer.
A schedule of events
is posted for volunteers to sign up to participate with all of the details, the location, an audience overview, and the approximate length of the meeting.
