The Rape Crisis Center accepts volunteer applications all year round!Our Volunteer Application
The Rape Crisis Center is now offering our volunteer advocate training three times per year – Winter, Summer and Fall. Please check the calendar to see the upcoming training dates. You can submit your online application at any time, and our volunteer coordinator will contact you prior to the next training. Our first training of 2017 begins in mid-January. Training is generally held on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings, and Saturday afternoons. The training is 50 hours, and volunteers must be a minimum of 21 years of age, able to successfully complete a criminal background check, drug test, and have up to date immunizations. We ask that volunteers who complete the training commit to 4-6 hours weekly of volunteer time for a minimum of 6 months. If you have questions, please contact Claudia, our Volunteer and Hotline Manager at 702-385-2153.
The Rape Crisis Center has great opportunities for community members to get involved. Because of the sensitive nature of our work, most volunteer positions do involve significant training. If you are a caring, committed and professional individual who is interested in giving back to our community in this critical way, we encourage you to think about becoming an advocate with The Rape Crisis Center. If you are under 21 and interested in volunteering, consider becoming a Hollaback Volunteer. Contact Christina for more information at 702-385-2153.
The Rape Crisis Center could not do what we do without our volunteers!
It is our volunteer corps that is responsible for answering our hotline 24/7, as well as responding to victims at the hospital. Volunteers also assist with representing The Rape Crisis Center at outreach and community events and help out in our office. While this job is not for everyone, those who do volunteer with us feel a profound sense of pride and satisfaction in what they do, knowing that they are providing a service to someone who is at such a challenging and vulnerable time in their life.
