Volunteer

 

 Volunteers play a vital role in SARA’s mission to educate our community and assist and empower people who have experienced sexual violence. 

Hotline Volunteers 

SARA could not provide caring, supportive and dependable 24/7 Hotline service to the community without its committed and compassionate Hotline Volunteers. Our well-trained volunteers provide information, referrals and crisis intervention to survivors and their families and supporters on SARA’s 24-hour hotline. 

In order to provide the best service to our clients, there is a mandatory interviewing, reference-checking, and 40-hour training process for all incoming volunteers.  At this time, we are not currently recruiting for hotline volunteers; we are hoping to have another cohort in the fall. If you are interested in becoming a hotline volunteer, please fill out the application below. You will be notified when recruitment  begins for our next training.

We are not currently recruiting for SARA hotline volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a hotline volunteer, please fill out an application indicating your interest. We will contact you when the next training is scheduled. 

SARA Hotline Volunteers MUST be at least 18 years old and will be required to complete an interview. Minimum volunteer commitment: 24 Hours/month, which immediately follows completion of training. Potential 4- or 12-hour shift blocks are available when the SARA office is closed (evenings, weekends, and holidays).  Hotline volunteers must commit to the Hotline Volunteer role for at least 1 year.

 

 

Community Outreach Volunteers

Community Outreach Volunteers organize and participate in community awareness events and projects. As a Community Outreach Volunteer, you will team up with other people in our community who care about making positive change, and interact with community members at events, while also providing the necessary support for these events and projects to take place. Participation in a volunteer orientation is required. Outreach Volunteers organize, execute, and participate in community awareness events; reach out to community organization, both local and rural; table specific events; and promote the agency's vision and mission.
