Volunteer

The Rape Crisis Center has great opportunities for community members to get involved.  Because of the sensitive nature of our work, most volunteer positions do involve significant training.  If you are a caring, committed and professional individual who is interested in giving back to our community in this critical way, we encourage you to think about becoming an advocate with The Rape Crisis Center.

It is our volunteer corps that is responsible for answering our hotline 24/7, as well as responding to victims at the hospital.  While this job is not for everyone, those who do volunteer with us feel a profound sense of pride and satisfaction in what they do, knowing that they are providing a service to someone who is at such a challenging and vulnerable time in their life.

“I wanted to commit my life to something I believe in, where I can make a difference.” – RCC Volunteer

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the online application linked here, or call our office at 702-385-2153. Advocate trainings are held in the spring and fall each year, with the next one beginning in mid-September, 2014. You may submit a volunteer application at any time and we will contact you before the next available training class for an interview. The training is 50 hours, and volunteers must be able to successfully complete a criminal background check, drug test, and have up to date immunizations.  We ask that volunteers who complete the training commit to 6 hours weekly of volunteer time for a minimum of 6 months.

While an intense process, the RCC advocate training is well regarded in the community and will provide volunteers with a great background in community resources.  The training and volunteer work with RCC is a wonderful professional development experience, particularly for those who may be interested in moving into victim services, counseling, or social services as a career.

The Rape Crisis Center is currently accepting applications!

  • Why I'm here doing this! I'm not doing this because I am trapped in a place of pain anymore, I have moved on emotionally. I am doing this to bring other Narcissistic abuse survivors into healing because I know the pain of it. Raising awareness and promoting healing of other survivors is why I am still here!

  • Hope for change keeps many women in abusive relationships after they have ceased to be viable. Unfortunately change can only happen if our partner chooses to make that commitment and seeks help. #abuse #abusiverelationships #dv #domesticviolence #survivor #quote
