Join us in the fight to end sexual violence and support survivors! We are seeking enthusiastic and committed community members to join our Helpline and Board.
Volunteering on the Helpline
Our next advocate training will be in Fall 2021!
Advocates provide listening, support, and information over the phone and respond in person to be with survivors through medical forensic exams at local hospitals or to be present when a survivor makes a report to police.
Experience in a social services field is desirable, but not required. Requirements include being 18 years or older, having reliable transportation, and having a valid driver's license. Volunteer Advocates go through an extensive 47+ hour training that includes virtual trainings and individual work. Volunteer Advocates receive a small stipend for being on call and providing phone and in-person support.
To sign up, please fill out the Volunteer Interest Form to receive more information! Please contact Elise, Outreach & Client Services Coordinator, with questions.
Joining our Board of Directors
Our Board is responsible for overseeing the agency’s policies, planning, finances, and fundraising. This is an unpaid position with an expectation of attending monthly meetings.
In the wake of renewed calls for racial justice, SASSMM recognizes that our agency is a white-led organization, which does not reflect the community that we serve. We are committed to ongoing anti-racism work within our agency, and we know that internal work is necessary in order to create a space that allows every individual to thrive. Those who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQ+, or disabled are strongly encouraged to apply, and we look forward to discussing how we can best support any people of marginalized identities who might be interested in this position.
To begin the application process, please fill out our volunteer interest form!
