Looking for a meaningful experience and a way to give back?

Become a CA State Certified Sexual Assault Counselor (SAC) and support individuals impacted by sexual violence. We welcome people ages 18+ with all levels of life experience who are passionate about helping others heal from sexual violence. No prior experience is necessary.

Rape Trauma Services (RTS), is San Mateo County's only rape crisis center. We support our survivor community with volunteers like you!

Volunteers must reside in or near San Mateo County, CA and complete a comprehensive training through RTS.

With the limitations in place due to COVID-19, we are holding the spring training virtually Tuesdays and Thursdays 6 pm-9:30 pm and Saturdays 9 am-12:30 pm from June 22 to Aug 3.

After completing our training, volunteer Sexual Assault Counselors commit to 52 shifts/one year of service (a 6-12 hour shift per week), which includes:

  • taking calls on the RTS crisis line
  • meeting with survivors (when the Shelter In Place Order is lifted) to provide support and advocacy post assault and when reporting
  • engaging in community outreach

Volunteers receive on-going support, mentoring and education/training.

This is a great opportunity to give back to your community while learning new skills!

Please visit our website to register to attend an Info Session and/or to complete an application. If you have questions, email volunteer@rapetraumaservices.org

We will reach out to you to schedule an interview once your application is received. We look forward to hearing from you!
