"Being an advocate allows me to exercise personal empathy with victims, seeing that true individual strength comes from the difficult choice, undiscovered power, and amazing example they reflect every day in being a survivor."

Janet, Volunteer Advocate

VOLUNTEERS LOVE SAFE PROJECT BECAUSE:

THEY HELP THOSE IN NEED

THEY GAIN EXPERIENCE IN CRISIS INTERVENTION

THEY WORK CLOSELY WITH SAFE PROJECT STAFF

 

THEY RECEIVE FREE EXTENSIVE TRAINING IN DOMESTIC VIOLENCE, SEXUAL ASSAULT, AND VICTIM ADVOCACY

WHAT SAFE PROJECT ASKS OF YOU:

COMPLETE A 40 HOUR VOLUNTEER TRAINING

COMMIT TO 6 MONTHS OF SERVICE WITH SAFE PROJECT

STAY UP TO DATE ON VICTIM SERVICES BY COMPLETING CONTINUING EDUCATION

 

VICTIM/HOTLINE ADVOCATE*

Our biggest need is for volunteers willing to work our 24-hour hotline. We ask our advocates to take two 12-hour hotline shifts each month. Hotline advocates are able to do normal day to day activities with only an extra cell phone to carry and respond to. Calls may be anything from crisis intervention to hospital advocacy to shelter clients asking a question.

OFFICE
INTERNSHIPS*

SAFE Project has available internship opportunities for fall, spring, and summer! To be an intern at SAFE you would need to go through our state-mandated 40-hour training. Our interns work closely with our Volunteer Coordinator to make a schedule and an outline of things they wish to learn during their semester. Internships can be done for school credit or for job training.
