Details Details

You may have notice, via facebook, that a minor change has occurred for the Dent's last night.


So for all you inquiring minds out there who want to know the details here they are:

Where? The Turning Point You can click HERE check out the website, but it is a local non-profit, rape crisis center that offers counseling, legal advocacy and prevention education to Collin County.

When do you start? My first day will begin at 9:00 am on Monday, November 29th.

What will you be doing? My official title is Primary Prevention Coordinator. I will responsible for organizing and providing prevention-education to the community. This will include presentations, leading groups, working with volunteers, collecting and organizing data/research and a whole bunch of other things. Basically, I'm gonna get paid to build relationships and talk with/help people! AWESOME!

Any perks? Of course getting paid. There are benefits (I'm still waiting for the paperwork for all the details on this) I'm also pretty excited that I get PTO for holidays and the week between Christmas and New Years, as well as two additional weeks throughout the year.

All in all I am pretty excited about it. I feel really affirmed not only because of what I will be getting to do but also how it happened. It was very serendipitous. One day I have never heard of the Turning Point, the next day I am volunteering, and now I WORK there. I found a job that will pay me to help people and be helpful with my additional pursuit to obtain my counseling license. Very happy indeed!!!
