Training with OSARCC has empowered me, grown my confidence and made me feel like I can make a difference for other women who have experienced sexual violence. I have felt supported and held by my fellow volunteers, as well as the OSARCC staff. I feel more able to articulate my views on sexual violence in an authoritative way, as I have been able to absorb facts and statistics. I feel good about being part of an organisation committed to being as inclusive and intersectional as possible. The whole experience of learning to non-directively listen has been simultaneously empowering and humbling.
