About

Become a Volunteer!

The City of Alexandria’s Sexual Assault Center is recruiting volunteer advocates for their Fall class of 2016.

Volunteers are an integral part of the Sexual Assault Center. After a comprehensive training course, volunteers may become client advocates. Must pass a criminal background check and sex offender registry check.

Volunteers respond to the 24-hour hotline on evenings and weekends. They provide emotional support and information to assist victims in regaining control of their lives. Volunteers also accompany victims of sexual assault to the police department and/or hospital.

Our next volunteer training will start in the Fall of 2016. The training is 40 hours of classroom training on weekends and evenings. All trainings must be attended to receive certification. If you would like more information or would like a volunteer application please call the volunteer coordinator at 703.746.3127 or email at volunteer4SAC@gmail.com .
