About

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 needfor this opportunity. Our next training starts February 24th and will be on Saturdays at our Skokie location. Our training covers:

  • History of the Rape Crisis Movement
  • Cultural Competency
  • Components of Sexual Assault and Abuse
  • Crisis Intervention
  • 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 adawson@zcenter.org or 847-244-1187ext.159 to learn more.
