About

Are you committed to eliminating sexual violence in our community? Want to be a part of a team that supports sexually assaulted victims through a 24 hot-line and hospital accompaniment? The YWCA Greater Los Angeles needs YOUR help!

The YWCA Greater Los Angeles Sexual Assault Crisis Services provides comprehensive services to survivors of sexual assault 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and we need the assistance of volunteers like YOU to continue providing these much needed services in the Greater Los Angeles area.

Volunteers will assist with the intake of calls from our 24 hour Crisis Hot-line and provide accompaniment as a victim advocate to survivors of sexual assault being treated at one of our SART (Sexual Assault Response Team) hospitals. Volunteer Advocates also assist in educating the community about the emerging issue of sexual violence and are ambassadors of the YWCA GLA Sexual Assault Crisis Services.

All volunteers for the YWCA Greater Los Angeles Sexual Assault Crisis Services must attend and complete a Sexual Assault Certification training before becoming a Certified Sexual Assault Crisis Advocate. The orientation for the next training will begin on Tuesday,January 10, 2017 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm. The training will be held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 - 9:30 pm from January 10 - March 2, 20217. Location of orientation and training are to be announced.


This is your chance to join the movement and become a Certified Sexual Assault Crisis Advocate to help provide support to rape survivors.

If you are interested in this opportunity or would like more information on becoming a Volunteer Advocate, please feel free to contact Jasmine Coleman, Corporate Volunteer Supervisor at 213-251-1351 or email jasmine.coleman@ywcagla.org. Check out our website at www.ywcagla.org.
