DAIS volunteers provide crucial, life-saving services to domestic violence survivors and their families. Your time and compassion will go a long way in providing support to those impacted by domestic violence in Dane County.
Our application process is currently closed as we on-board a new group of volunteers. Our next New Advocate Training session is set for May.
Please read about the range of opportunities and complete this Volunteer Contact Form. We will contact you when the application process is open again. (Note: This form is best viewed using Chrome.)
Some volunteer roles work directly with victims in crisis and their children. These positions require a 27-hour New Advocate Training, in addition to program-specific training and observations.
All DAIS volunteers are required to undergo a background check and are required to complete confidentiality forms for the safety of the DAIS facilities and the protection of those we serve.
If you have any questions about volunteering, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
To maintain safety and the health and wellbeing of everyone at DAIS, individuals volunteering within our building are asked to provide documentation confirming COVID-19 vaccination, or in the absence of vaccination documentation, provide a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of their volunteer service. If volunteering on a regular basis, testing for unvaccinated volunteers is required at a minimum of once per calendar week.
