We need volunteers! Our volunteers are extremely important and help us provide critical services to survivors of sexual violence. Our volunteer advocates take shifts on the 24-hour crisis hotline and are available to accompany survivors to hospital exams and police interviews providing emotional support and advocacy.
Our new advocate training provides intensive education on the psychological, medical and legal implications of sexual assault, as well as other forms of oppression and how they interconnect in the lives of survivors. Crisis intervention and counseling skills are developed through a series of presentations, discussion, and role-playing. During this 40-hour training, WASAC and community partners team up to provide a detailed synopsis of the demand for sexual assault advocacy in Sedgwick County.
After completing the application and screening process, our volunteers are required to attend 1 orientation, the 40-hour training session, and complete 2 buddy shifts.
Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of 1 year and sign up for 2 twelve-hour shifts each month.
**Volunteers must be 21 years of age**
