About NCVC: National Center for Victims of Crime advocates for victims' rights, trains professionals who work with victims, and serves as a trusted source of information on victims' issues.

The National Center for Victims of Crime (NCVC) seeks a Los Angeles based Community Volunteer to provide critical support and leadership for the Building Bridges Project. Building Bridges is a partnership between four branches of the Southern California NAACP and the National Center for Victims of Crime. This project works with communities of color in the Los Angeles area to rectify disparities in treatment, reinvest in communities most harmed by mass incarceration, and make victims' services culturally relevant and trauma informed.
The Community Volunteer will work in close coordination with the program manager of the Building Bridges project and the Communications team to build trust with the community, strengthen partnerships with community organizations, and work with the NAACP to host community conversations.
This volunteer opportunity is an incredible opportunity to work, on the ground, at the forefront of a revolutionary and vital project. As this project expands, your responsibilities may also change slightly.
We are seeking a leader who is passionate about victims services, racial justice and community. Does this sound like you?
