About

Sexual Assault/Rape Crisis Services of Cumberland County needs dedicated volunteers who want to make a difference in people’s lives. Our team will offer a comprehensive training for individuals who will serve as the first point of contact for hotline callers and will provide support, information and advocacy to survivors of sexual violence.

The course runs Tuesday and Thursday evenings, October 11 - November 17, from 6-9pm. Registration is required prior to the start of training. Call the Volunteer Coordinator at: 1-888-727-2877 or 258-4324 or email tgrace@ywcacarlisle.org for volunteer application and registration information.

This training prepares volunteers to counsel clients on the 24-hour Sexual Assault/Rape Crisis hotline and to accompany and advocate for clients throughout medical and legal proceedings. There is no fee for trainees who commit to fulfilling the minimum volunteer term. Hotline Volunteers/Advocates are required to have updated child abuse, PSP criminal background, and FBI fingerprint clearances prior to the start of their first hotline shift.
