Join us in the fight to end sexual violence! We are seeking enthusiastic Helpline volunteers to support survivors.
What is an advocate?
Advocates provide telephone support, accompaniment for survivors and significant others through medical and forensic examinations, and advocacy with law enforcement personnel.
Do I get paid?
Volunteer Advocates receive a small stipend for being on call. The stipend amount changes during a hospital or police accompaniment.
How old do I have to be to be a Helpline Advocate?
Volunteer advocates must be 18 years or older.
Do I need experience?
Experience in a social services field is desirable. Reliable transportation and a valid driver’s license are required. Extensive training will be provided. The training is unpaid and the exact schedule is to be determined based on participant availability.
How do I sign up?
