Join SAVIS’ Dedicated and Passionate Volunteer Team!

We encourage volunteers to assist in many aspects of SAVIS’ work. Volunteers are called upon to staff the Public Outreach booths, provide support to callers on the 24 hour support and crisis line, staff bingo events as well as many other vital volunteer opportunities.

We offer extensive training that will educate and prepare you for working with our agency and supporting the community. SAVIS also provides monthly volunteer meetings where volunteers have an opportunity to expand their knowledge and connect with one another.

Volunteer opportunities include:

Crisis/Support Line Worker (Woman-identified and genderfluid people, 18+); On-line module training with a commitment of 20 hours per month.

Provide immediate support, crisis intervention and community resources to callers on the SAVIS 24 hour support and crisis line. Callers may have questions about their own experiences of abuse, or those of a friend or loved one. Callers may be in the process of coping with a recent or historical incident of violence and need emotional support or help in coping with a challenging situation.

“I have been a passionate and dedicated frontline volunteer with SAVIS for many years. SAVIS has received countless accolades for their committed service provided to the community – the volunteers and staff are compassionate, caring and professional leaders who drive the success of the organization. Volunteering has enabled me to provide caring, non-judgmental support to courageous survivors of sexual assault and/or domestic violence. The simple act of listening, caring and providing support can create the biggest impact to an individual – it can lead to turning negative situations into positive potentials.”
