We couldn’t succeed or provide the support that we do without the dedication of our staff, volunteers and interns.
We’ll provide all the training and education you need. And you’ll experience the emotional satisfaction that comes from knowing you’ve truly made a difference.
Volunteers are invaluable in the services & support ZCenter provides.
All of the services we provide to survivors are dependent upon our amazing volunteers, and we are so excited you are interested in becoming a part of our ZCenter family. Our volunteers are provided with a forty-hour sexual assault training which prepares them for supporting survivors. Throughout your entire volunteer experience with us, we will be there to support you and give guidance whenever you need it.
There are many different ways to volunteer with ZCenter depending upon your skills and interests. Whether you want to be there for a survivor when they call in on the support line, or help the development team on creating events and fundraisers—there’s a place for you here. ZCenter volunteers are passionate and dedicated individuals who are looking to support survivors, as well as educate our community about prevention.
