Hope Haven of the Lowcountry, a rape crisis and children's advocacy center, is accepting applications for volunteers and interns to undergo child-advocate training.

The 3.5-hour training will be at 9 a.m. Aug. 14 at Hope Haven. Child-advocate volunteers will supervise Hope Haven's lobby to greet families, clients and other agency representatives visiting the office, according to a news release.
