Become a Volunteer

Make a difference

Do you want to make a real difference in the lives of others in your community? If so, please consider volunteering at the Sexual Assault Crisis Center. The training you will need is provided at no cost and the rewards you’ll experience are beyond measure.

Volunteer Opportunities include:

VICTIM ADVOCATES

A victim’s first point of contact is a critical step in the healing process.  As an on-call advocate, you will learn to:

  • offer phone assistance to victims during the Center’s non-business hours
  • accompany victims to emergency rooms, hospitals and/or police stations
  • guide victims through evidence collection and legal process
  • provide compassionate understanding and emotional support

Due to the extensive training, we ask advocates for a 1-year commitment. Typically, each advocate will be on-call only three to four nights a month. Typical on-call hours are: 5:00 pm-9:00 am Monday-Thursday and Weekend/Holiday daytime hours.

SUPPORT GROUPS

Support groups offer an opportunity for adults, children and families working through a sexual assault to come together.  As a group facilitator, you will learn:

  • how to create an environment which fosters trust, safety and education
  • the skills and specific techniques to work with groups

We hold support groups several times a year.  If you are interested in volunteering as a co-facilitator we ask for a commitment of a minimum of the ten week support group session.  To find out when the next support group session begins contact the Sexual Assault Crisis Center at 920.733.8119 or 800.722.7797
