Volunteers allow the Sexual Assault Center of Pierce County
SACPC has many volunteer opportunities available from a few hours a week to a longer commitment period providing the following support:
Volunteers support SACPC by being available for anyone impacted by sexual assault/abuse 24/7. Volunteering at SACPC is a great way of increasing one’s knowledge base regarding sexual assault/abuse issues, developing and improving advocacy skills, and contributing to the community and its members.
Volunteers interested in working directly with the community and victims are required to complete a 30+ hour Basic Sexual Assault Awareness Training (BSAAT), where prospective volunteers come to know who and where community resources are and the continuum of care that’s available for victims and the community. Further training is then given within the program of the volunteer’s interest.
Volunteers Really Make A Difference!
SACPC is a private, non-profit, community-based agency committed to challenging the social dynamics that foster sexual assault/abuse. We strive for the time when our services are no longer needed. Until then, victims can come forward to seek safe, confidential assistance without shame, guilt and or blame.
This makes volunteers a very important part of the work we do at the Sexual Assault Center of Pierce County. If you would like to be a part of this important work please contact our Volunteer Coordinator by either calling (253) 597-6424, ext. 19 or sending an email to email@example.com.(As safety permits, please include a phone# where we might reach you if email response presents problems.)
The Sexual Assault Center of Pierce County relies heavily on volunteer support.
Our largest number of volunteers are Advocates who staff the 24-hour Crisis, Information & Referral Line, and who provide medical and legal advocacy to clients. Volunteers receive 30+ hours of initial training and continue to receive training while they volunteer.
We always have a need for clerical volunteers. We have any number of office duties to complete and welcome this kind of volunteer assistance.
Unpaid internships are available throughout the agency’s programs.
Therapy interns receive supervision from a certified master’s level therapist, weekly case consultation, and experience with a broad range of clinical issues. Therapy interns must be enrolled in an accredited master’s degree program in counseling or a related field.
Internships are also available in the Advocacy and Education Programs.
