VST Training Academy

There are typically two training academies for new volunteers each year. Each session is run as a cohort, where volunteers are trained on an extensive range of topics. The 50 hours of classroom learning provide the foundational knowledge necessary to support families in crisis and achieve a clear understanding of VST procedures and protocol. In 2020 VST conducted the first ever virtual Academy. Future onboarding and training sessions for 2021-2022 are currently under development—check back for future updates about expansion and exciting innovations!
