Safe Harbor believes that sexual and intimate partner violence impact us all and we all have a part that we can play in addressing and preventing these complex issues. We would love to have you be a part of our team!
Due to state accreditation standards, if you are interested in volunteering at Safe Harbor, you must go through an intensive 6-week training series that involves one Tuesday evening a week (5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.) and two full Saturdays (9 a.m. – 4 p.m.). Because of the intensity of the 6-week training, they only occur three times per year, in the winter, spring, and fall.
Due to the nature of the service involved in the various volunteer teams at Safe Harbor, we will be facilitating a process of conducting criminal background checks on future volunteers during the training series. To be clear, the presence of a criminal history does not automatically disqualify someone from serving as a volunteer at Safe Harbor, so please just let us know ahead of time if you so have something that will come up during a check. There is a $10 fee that is to be paid by the potential volunteer.
Currently, Safe Harbor organizes volunteers into teams based on individual volunteer interest. The teams include:
If you are interested in participating in the volunteer training and becoming a Safe Harbor Volunteer, please complete and submit a volunteer application and someone will be in touch with you as soon as possible with additional details. We look forward to working with you!
…it was like no other volunteer training I’ve ever experienced. Each session was so incredibly thought-provoking… There is no way to go through this training and not come out a different person at the end of it.
