We currently have two tiers of involvement that we offer students at the University of Michigan: Ally Training and Volunteer Training.


Ally Training

Our next Ally Training will take place in Fallsemester of 2016.

The SAPAC Ally Training Program seeks to empower participants with the knowledge, awareness, and skills needed to be actively involved in the movement to end sexual and intimate partner violence.  The SAPAC Ally Training Program is a great first step in receiving basic training regarding these issues and becoming a supporter of the movement.

If you'd like to attend Ally Training, please complete our Ally/Volunteer Application.

Volunteer Training

Volunteer Training will be offered in the winter semester of each year. This advanced intensive training program is spread over a two week period.  Volunteer Training will provide participants with in-depth knowledge of issues related to sexual and intimate partner violence as well as specific skills that will be developed throughout your time volunteering with SAPAC.  This training is a requirement if you are interested in volunteering with the Bystander Intervention & Community Engagement Program; Networking, Publicity, and Activism Program; or Peer Education Program.

Once you are a fully trained volunteer, there are many opportunities to become further involved in SAPAC. Volunteers have the opportunity to apply for leadership positions that may include leading the peer led support group, co-coordinating one of the volunteer groups, or working in the office as support staff.

If you are interested in Volunteer Training, please complete our Ally/Volunteer Application. The next volunteer training will be held Winter semester 2015 on the following dates:
