**If you are interested in becoming a crisis hotline volunteer please e-mail Dana@dayleague.org for a copy of the application**

Once you have completed the state-mandated volunteer training, we ask our volunteers to sign up for two shifts a month. All volunteer shifts are done remotely. The required state-mandated training is 20 hours of training before working on the crisis hotline.

Our organization helps survivors of sexual assault by providing a twenty-four-hour crisis hotline, hospital accompaniment and also counseling services to women and men who may not be able to find help elsewhere. We are one of thirty-five sexual assault centers in all of Georgia (That is thirty-five centers for one hundred and fifty-nine counties), and we take one-third of the calls in Georgia.

To run our twenty-four-hour crisis hotline, we need volunteers. We need people who want to help make a difference for survivors in need. Our volunteers undergo a twenty-hour training, to be announced in mid-June 2024. Once training is completed we ask our volunteers to commit to work at least 1 to 2 shifts a month. It is an incredible organization to work with and volunteer for, and the time spent makes a huge difference.

If you are local to Atlanta or the surrounding areas and are interested in learning more and getting involved, please email me at Dana@dayleague.org or call 404-914-4312. If you do not have the time available but would like to contribute please share our mission with friends or family willing to physically volunteer or feel free to donate.

We require volunteers to have a criminal background check, however the center pays for this expense.

Thank you

About Day League

Location:

Mission Statement

58-2005078 Day League provides direct services, prevention education, and advocacy for youth and adult survivors of sexual assault, their families, and the community as a whole. Day League ensures survivors of sexual violence forge a new beginning, not only to survive their ordeal, but also to become strengthened by it.

Description

In 1989, the Dekalb Rape Crisis Center (DRCC) was established to combat the devastating effects of rape and sexual assault by empowering survivors and educating the community. With its dedicated specialists and passionate volunteers, DRCC became a safe place for survivors to find quality support throughout their journey.

In 2013, the Dekalb Rape Crisis center changed its name to Day League. The name celebrates the new beginning that each survivor meets daily through collective support in a safe, nurturing environment. Day League embraces the potential that each day holds for survivors to grow stronger and thrive.

Day League confronts the problem of sexual assault in metro Atlanta by providing care for survivors from initial crisis to lasting recovery. Since 1989, Day League (formerly known as the DeKalb Rape Crisis Center) has taken a holistic approach toward its services to walk with survivors through every step of their journey. These services include a 24-hour crisis intervention hotline, hospital accompaniment, individual counseling, support groups, bilingual care, legal advocacy, prevention, and awareness education. By focusing on full-term trauma recovery, Day League works to ensure that survivors will thrive.
