Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
One in every 4 women will experience domestic and/or sexual violence in their lifetime. Someone you know, perhaps your mother, your daughter, your sister or your best friend is a survivor. This is an issue that reaches everyone regardless of race, sexual orientation, religion, education or socioeconomic status. But girls aged 16-24 experience the highest rate of intimate partner violence at rate that is almost triple the national average. At The Survivant Organization, it is our purpose to end violence against young women.
The Survivant Organization’s (TSO) mission: to eradicate domestic and sexual violence among females aged 16-24 through research, interactive education, and advocacy.
The Survivant Organization (TSO) is a newly formed non-profit dedicated to eradicating domestic and sexual violence in females aged 16-24 through research, interactive education, and advocacy. One in every four women will experience domestic and/or sexual violence. But girls in this age range are four times more likely to experience these kinds of violence over any other age group. TSO implements programs that increase awareness, create safety plans, facilitate legal representation, and provide additional neccessities for survivors on their journey to recovery. Every woman we assist will be provided with holistic solutions, guiding survivors towards a life free from violence and abuse.
Services provided by TSO include but are not limited to:
Education: Girls aged 16-24 not only experience the highest incidence rate but also the highest rate of underreported cases. A major obstacle for girls in this age range is lack of awareness of services available to them when making a decision to leave an abusive situation. TSO will give presentations and hold workshops at local universities, high schools,community events highlighting facts about domestic and sexual violence, perform interactive exercises helping females to recognize healthy vs. unhealthy relationships, give information about how and where to get help as well as empower those attending by sharing volunteer opportunities with TSO.
Case Management- The time after an incident can be both overwhelming and confusing for a victim. It is important for victims to have a knowledgeable and experienced advocate when beginning the road to recovery. At TSO, we work closely with other organizations to assist and connect them with emergency housing, accompaniment for SANE exams, funding for transportation, referrals for legal representation among other immediate necessities.
Therapeutic Resources- As part of our holistic approach, it is imperative to assist with not only the physical but emotional and mental well-being of a victim. TSO will host group therapy events open to individuals and the community, peer support groups at both the high school and college aged levels, as well as connecting survivors with licensed professionals in necessary situations.
