As a volunteer, you have the opportunity to work directly with victims in crisis and their children. These positions require our 26-hour New Advocate Training — please click on your position of interest below to see the position description.

Client-Based Volunteer Requirements:

Because client-based volunteers work directly with our clients, a vulnerable population that we often see in crisis situations, there is a thorough 26-hour New Advocate Training program required prior to working in those positions to prepare you for your role.

  1. Complete the online volunteer application.
  2. The Volunteer Coordinator will be in contact with you to set up an interview with yourself and the coordinator in charge of the program you are interested in and to answer any questions.
  3. With your permission, DAIS will conduct a criminal background check and contact 3 references.
  4. You will meet with the Program Coordinator for an interview.
