Description

Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Services (SAPARS) is looking for volunteer advocates to respond to its 24-hour helpline and make a difference in the lives of people affected by sexual violence.

Volunteer advocates receive extensive training and support to prepare them to effectively respond to callers. This training is unpaid.

Volunteer advocates are notified of calls through their cell phones from the answering service, allowing them to be on call from their homes or another location where they have a private space to talk.

Volunteer advocates must be over the age of 18, empathetic and dependable, with access to reliable transportation. All potential volunteers must complete the training and a screening process which includes criminal and DHHS background checks. No prior experience is necessary.
