The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
ZCenter is dedicated to serving survivors of sexual assault/abuse and educating our community. Volunteers have the opportunity to come alongside survivors of sexual assault and support them on their journey toward healing. There are a variety of opportunities, ranging from administrative work and helping with special events to working on our 24/7 Support Line and as a Medical Advocate.
Our 40-hour Sexual Assault Crisis Intervention Training will equip you with the tools and resources you need for this opportunity. Our next training starts June 4th and will be a daytime training at out Gurnee location. Our training covers:
History of the Rape Crisis Movement
Components of Sexual Assault and Abuse
Medical, Legal, and Support Line Advocacy
Prevention Education & Community Outreach
Our training is interactive and includes role plays and various presentations from professionals within the agency and in the community. You will also interact with current volunteers through our panel, where they share their volunteer experience and answer questions you may have.
ZCenter Volunteers give their time in a variety of capacities and our Volunteer Coordinator loves helping them find the opportunity that's the best fit! Please contact Ashley Dawson at email@example.com or 847-244-1187ext.159 to learn more.
