We strive, along with our members, to create a state where domestic violence and sexual assault are intlerable.
Utah Domestic Violence Coalition (UDVC) is nationally recognized for its role in improving domestic violence intervention and prevention efforts in the state of Utah and is the go to organization for anyone with questions about emerging issues that may affect the safety of survivors and/or accessibility to services. The UDVC is a membership organization bringing together the domestic violence service providers in the state of Utah, community partners and concerned citizens. We strive, along with our members, to create a state where domestic violence and sexual assault are intolerable.
Volunteering with the UDVC has been extremely fulfilling. The staff, interns, and other volunteers provide a great community.
There is a very thorough training that leaves you feeling well-prepared to take calls.
Because the training is so thorough, there is a bigger up-front time commitment - but I found it to be time very well spent.
After you go through training, you can volunteer as your schedule allows.
It's been a good experience for me. I have several weeks in a row where I can volunteer for one or two shifts a week, but then if I have a major life even happen, I am okay to not sign up for shifts for a month. They work with your schedule.
They also provide great support: once a month volunteer meetings and they have an on-call team member you can contact any time day or night.
I would highly recommend.
