About Being a Helper

Resize Font: A

Advocates Against Abuse Helpers partner with the Trainer to help them deliver the course in whatever capacity the Trainer needs.

Who would make a good Helper?

  • A person within the role of direct support with people who have an intellectual disability
  • Confidence in the Trainer’s ability to teach
  • Willing to develop a positive relationship with all other participants in the program
  • Motivates and commits to supporting the Trainer in their work
  • Flexible in their schedule which allows them to help the Trainer before and during sessions
  • Able to provide help without dominating, controlling or leading the situation

“Watching people with an intellectual disability teach others is a true testament to their abilities! Watching the trainers “come alive” as they teach others about abuse prevention is inspiring and exciting!”

  • Sheri Franklin, AAA Helper
