Volunteers play a vital role in SARA’s mission to educate our community and assist and empower people who have experienced sexual violence. SARA seeks community members of any gender to join our team as Volunteer Hotline Advocates or Community Outreach Volunteers.

Volunteer Hotline Advocates

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.

All potential Hotline Volunteers must submit a completed application form (see below). Upon review, SARA’s volunteer coordinator will contact applicants to schedule interviews. Volunteers are required to participate in one of our 32-hour, bi-annual Hotline Volunteer Training Programs. In addition to completing an application and completing training, potential volunteers must consent to a criminal background check.

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 our 12-hour training program is required.
