The work of ending domestic violence and relationship abuse cannot be done alone—we need your help to make it a reality! We view our volunteers as a direct link to the communities we serve, and believe in crafting meaningful personal and communal experiences that bolster the mission of Safe Passage and strengthen community connections.

We know that volunteers come to Safe Passage with a wealth of knowledge, skills, and experience. We seek volunteers from all walks of life and backgrounds (no prior experience working in Domestic Violence advocacy is required), and will work with you to make sure you feel prepared for and supported in your time here.

To get started: fill out a Volunteer Application! You will receive a confirmation email following your application submission and updates about our coming up Volunteer Info Sessions. All prospective volunteers should participate in one of these sessions, which will give you more information on who we are, the logistics of the program, and what to expect from involvement.

 

The goals of the Volunteer Program at Safe Passage are:

  • To expand our organizational capacities with the skills and knowledge of community members. 
  • To build and maintain an informed and skilled community capable of taking action to support survivors and prevent violence.
  • To create and deepen mutually beneficial relationships between our organization and community members.

Safe Passage Volunteers are also welcome to use this experience for academic or professional purposes. Safe Passage can work with individual volunteers to accommodate academic or professional requirements.

I really enjoy working alongside Safe Passage staff to make a positive difference for our community. Volunteers are given a lot of trust and resources to educate themselves. Through volunteering I have learned so much about domestic violence and interrupting abusive behaviors. Thank you for helping me become more alert and aware. I feel really lucky to be part of an organization that so clearly values their volunteers.
