It's flexible! We'll work with your schedule.


1175 Howard St.San Francisco, CA 94105


The Riley Center seeks people committed to:

  • Supporting survivors of Domestic Violence.
  • Challenging all forms of oppression that contribute to intimate violence.
  • Developing valuable counseling, facilitation, and leadership skills.

We offer support to survivors through our hotline, community office, emergency shelter, transitional housing program and children's program. Our volunteer support is an essential piece in delivering these services! We believe that survivors are fully capable of making empowered choices for themselves. It is our role to support survivors in identifying and expanding their options by utilizing an intersectional feminist, peer-based model.

Attending our Basic Advocacy Training is required prior to volunteering. This training is done in collaboration with Woman, Inc; we are excited to come together to train new advocates and hope that in doing so we can create a greater sense of community. All sessions are mandatory.

Join us as we strive to create safer communities for all of us!

This training will be lead through online modules and three in-person 8-hour trainings on the Saturdays from 9:30am to 5:30pm in Spring 2017. The in-person dates are all mandatory. To apply, please fill out application here: For any questions or concerns, please contact Neda at Applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
