Become a Rape Crisis Advocate: Support Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Survivors

Hello prospective volunteer,


We are The North Brooklyn Coalition Against Family Violence. Founded in 1998 by six local community-based groups, we are a grassroots agency dedicated to helping survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence identify and reach their recovery goals. 


In 2019, North Brooklyn Coalition developed and implemented a new program to recruit and train Rape Crisis Advocates to provide trauma-informed crisis counseling, emotional support, and knowledge of services to survivors who present for medical and forensic examination at NYCHH Woodhull Hospital. Our Advocates perform a vital role as outlined in the New York State Survivor Bill of Rights.


Volunteers will complete a free 40-hour Rape Crisis Advocate training provided by experienced staff and members of the field. Due to COVID-19, our standard in-person classroom training will be adapted for virtual learning. Our upcoming spring virtual training will take place the weekends of March 20th and March 27th, 2021 over Zoom.


We ask that volunteers be at least 18 years old; be able to reach Woodhull Hospital within 20 minutes (we will reimburse you for travel); commit to two on-call shifts per month; attend virtual monthly meet-up groups; and make a one year commitment to the program. 


If you are interested in learning more about how to become an Advocate, please apply directly to this post or send an email to Volunteer@NorthBrooklynCoalition.org


We look forward to you joining our dedicated team.
