(2) A 90-hour fundamentals training in skills needed to work in a shelter
(3) A 90-hour specialization course in homeless or family violence shelters (participant’s choice)
(4) A 20-hour work placement at a shelter (for those that don’t already work at a shelter)
(5) A 20-hour capstone project—research & propose solutions to a topic concerning the shelter

You will need:

(3) Complete an application, including a cover letter and resume
(4) Selected applicants will interview with an FV/homeless shelter in their community.
