Volunteer Opportunities & Training

 

As a Response volunteer, your time and talent will go a long way. You can be the missing link that many of our clients need by listening, teaching, or working behind the scenes. We have various opportunities available including: fundraising, court advocacy, hotline advocacy, childcare, CAP participation, community events, employment assistance, and sharing of special talents. 

 

As a volunteer you can help us achieve our mission to prevent and help people overcome the problems of sexual and domestic violence and other forms of abuse through outreach, advocacy, and supportive services. 2019 Summer/Fall Volunteer Training will begin in August. The amount of training hours required depends on which volunteer level you wish to participate in. Below are the volunteer levels, and you can also click here for more detailed information. If you are interested in participating in the upcoming winter training, please submit a volunteer application to volcoor@shentel.net or contact volunteer coordinator, Lynn McKee, at 540-459-5599.
