SAS utilizes two teams of Volunteer Advocates to help provide support to sexual assault survivors in our community.
Volunteer Requirements & Training
All of our Volunteer Advocates must be at least 18 years old, have access to a car, attend our training, and pass a background check (there may be additional requirements, including a TB test and flu shot, depending on where the Volunteer Advocate is responding). Volunteer Advocates must also be able to respond to the hospital within approximately 30-45 minutes of being called.
The Volunteer Advocate training consists of about 20 hours spread over either 4 weeknights and a weekend day, or 6 weeknights. Trainings are currently being held virtually to best protect the health and safety of staff and volunteers. If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Advocate, please contact Scarlette at (262) 619-1634 Ext. 18 or firstname.lastname@example.org or click the button to the right and give us your information so we can contact you.
