"I volunteer at PAR because I love seeing the change in people from the beginning of a phone call or hospital visit to the end. They become less anxious and more at ease with what has happened to them." ~ Mollie S., Advocate
Want to be a PAR Volunteer?
We hold three volunteer advocate trainings a year. Our first training of 2019 will be held Thursday January 31st through Sunday February 3rd. The second training will be held Thursday May 30th through Sunday June 2nd.
PAR volunteers provide crucial services for adult survivors of sexual assault and their families and loved ones. As a volunteer, here are a few of the things you could be involved in:
24-Hour Crisis Line, providing support to survivors in time of crisis
Hospital Response, providing support for survivors during medical treatment
Resource and Referrals, helping to connect survivors to agencies in our area
Public Awareness, helping us plan events and raise awareness about sexual violence and the services we provide
Crisis Advocates complete 25 hours of training. Crisis Advocate volunteer trainings are held three times per year. Community Outreach volunteers complete a 2 hour training. Fill out an application to schedule a community outreach volunteer training. All new volunteer applicants must come in for a brief interview and consent to a SLED background check prior to attending training.
