Volunteers are essential at DAIS! Consider this:
- DAIS relies on help from up to 150 direct service volunteers.
- Volunteers provide more than 6,000 hours of direct service each year, and countless more hours helping to educate the community.
- Without volunteers, many of our life-saving services would be impossible!
When you become a DAIS volunteer, you join a widespread, grassroots movement to eradicate violence against women (and men!). In the short-term, DAIS volunteers provide direct aid to adults and children fleeing violence; in the long-term, our volunteers work to build a society where all people can live their lives free of violence and fear.
Volunteers get a lot of training and support to do this work successfully – from a comprehensive volunteer training, to monthly volunteer in-services, to regular checking-in with DAIS staff.

DAIS offers three types of volunteer opportunities, each with their own set of volunteer requirements:
- Client-based: where volunteers work directly with DAIS clients.
- Community-based: where volunteers work to engage and educate the public.
- Development: where volunteers help with administrative tasks, events work and research in the Development Office.
To apply for a volunteer role you can either:
All volunteers – client-based and community-based – are required to complete confidentiality forms for the safety of the DAIS facilities and the protection of those we serve.Back to top
