Join us for a week of exciting and educational events showcasing the artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, authors, fashion and beauty changemakers who are lighting up our screens and airwaves to shift our consciousness and conversations for good.
*Our Volunteer Program and virtual training are for Contra Costa, CA residents. If you live outside of Contra Costa but are looking for domestic violence volunteer opportunities, call the National DV Hotline at 800-799-7233*
Want to make a change in your community? Now is your chance! Be in touch ASAP to get enrolled in our next series of Domestic Violence Peer Counselor Trainings!
Our volunteers help our organization run - they staff our 24 hour Crisis Line, provide child care while parents are in support groups, make presentations in the community, and help with the day-to-day operations. Our philosophy is that volunteers are powerful agents of change from the community who are choosing to partner with us in order to break the multi-generational cycle of violence.
We anticipate that our summer training will be a hybrid of virtual and in-person sessions. The training will begin May 11 with applications due by May 7.
Application submission: go here ( http://www.standffov.org/volunteer/) and submit a short application about yourself.
STAND! For Families Free of Violence is a catalyst for breaking the multi-generational cycle of violence, promoting safe and strong relationships, and rebuilding lives.
STAND! For Families Free of Violence is committed to promoting safe and strong families. Our approach to eliminating family violence is well-rounded and community-wide. In addition to providing a complete spectrum of prevention, intervention, and treatment programs, we also enlist the efforts of local residents, partners, and institutions, all of whom are striving with us to stop domestic violence and child abuse.
STAND! is a founding member of the Zero Tolerance for Domestic Violence Initiative, a cross-sector organization working to help solve domestic violence, sexual assault, and child abuse. However, we cannot achieve our mission without the help of every individual, every school, every faith community, every neighborhood, and every business.
Whether our volunteers are answering incoming calls to our crisis line, being STAND's representative at speaking events, or fundraising, they are a vital part of STAND!.
