What would I be committing myself to?

After completing training, volunteers sign up to provide advocacy for a minimum of ten hours per month. Because court hearings are scheduled during the regular business day (Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm) volunteers must be available during these times: this position is NOT a good fit for a volunteer who is only available nights and weekends. Beyond the initial training, advocates are required to attend at least four hours of Continuing Education per year and to remain as a volunteer with STSM for one year.
