Volunteering for SAC&SC
There are many ways in which you can make a difference!
We know that your time is very important to you and we appreciate any time you can offer to assist us in supporting those impacted by sexual violence.
Some of the ways you can help are through volunteering your time to assist us in fundraising events, awareness events, office bulk mailings and other administrative support, as well as offering your time directly to those impacted by sexual violence within the communities you live in. Due to the sensitivity and confidentiality of the work we do with and on behalf of victims, we do require staff supervision and training for anyone who wishes to volunteer with our agency. There are requirements for all volunteers and the following are the mandatory hours that would be required for each of them.
Office Volunteer—This is a volunteer that provides support within our administrative offices for mailings and other campaign & fundraising efforts. This effort would not entail any direct client work; however it would be beneficial to support us on our larger administrative needs. (This does not have a minimum training requirement, however you will still need to fill out an application, sign a confidentiality statement as well as have a background check done in this role).
Community Voulunteer—This is a volunteer that wishes to assist us in our fundraising and outreach efforts within the communities we serve and may have contact with direct clients when volunteering at our agency events. (This has a minimum of (8) hours of training and you do have to fill out an application and have a background check done prior to volunteering within this role).
Support Line Advocate—This is a volunteer that wishes to do direct client work on our 24-hour support line, provide direct client support within their communities and may also choose to volunteer in other roles within our agency from time to time. (This has a minimum of (40) hours of training and will have to fill out an application and have a background check done prior to volunteering within this role).
