Help empower survivors of family and domestic violence.
The Willow is currently accepting applications for a variety of Volunteer Advocate positions. Volunteer Advocates participate in a variety of activities, from direct service in our shelter home
to organizing presentations in the community. No experience necessary, great training provided.
Fall 2014 Volunteer Advocate Training begins in mid-August – if you’re interested in joining the Willow family, download the above application and send it to Becca Burns, Director of Survivor Services. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or fax 785-856-2043.
We hold training 5 times a year, so apply at any time. Our volunteer opportunities require varying levels of training. We work with every volunteer to place them in a position they will enjoy. Non-direct service volunteers, who help with special events, office assistance, community education, and marketing, need 6 hours of training. Direct service volunteers, including shelter advocates, court advocates, and children’s program advocates, need 40 hours of training.
Volunteer Advocate Training consists of domestic violence education and preparation for the hands-on work we provide, including responding to crisis line calls, providing peer counseling, facilitating support groups, providing court advocacy, and many other free and confidential services. In exchange for this valuable training, we ask for a one year commitment of volunteering 4 hours per week, flexible to your schedule.
