(English) OUR VOLUNTEERS – Summer 2014

Our Volunteers The Women’s Support Center wants to give out a warm “THANK YOU” to our wonderful volunteers Nina Romá Agvanian and Nayiri Nahabedian for their devotion, passion, compassion, and professionalism. Nayiri puts her exceptional teaching background attained from California State University and her training skills to good use. Presently Nayiri is President of Board of Education of the Glendale Unified School District. She had several workshops with the WSC social workers discussing policies and procedures for domestic violence cases with the aim of improving services and counseling to families in need.   Nina’s extensive US experience at sexual assault crisis centers, on domestic violence hotlines and at shelters has been a huge asset to the WSC. She invests all her knowledge and energy in giving lively and engaging trainings to improve not only the quality of the services we provide but also the self care of the staff and the wellbeing of the beneficiaries. Her training topics, which were given to all members of the Coalition to Stop Violence against Women included : the Physiology of Trauma, Stress Management, Suicide Risk Assessment and Intervention, Child Abuse, and Answering the Hotline Best Practices.   We are grateful to Nina and Nayiri for their passionate contribution to social services and women’s rights in Armenia. Both are committed to continue cooperation with our center.
