YWCA is accepting applications from new volunteers

New applications are currently being accepted for the upcoming volunteer training cycle at YWCA Clark County.

Volunteers are partners in the YWCA’s mission to eliminate racism, empower women and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all.

The programs of YWCA Clark County offer opportunities for volunteers to support survivors of abuse, neglect and oppression. Opportunities include providing advocacy and support to survivors of sexual assault, representing the best interests of abused and neglected children in the court system, and supporting the safety and healing of families experiencing domestic violence.

YWCA is interested in expanding the number of volunteers with the sexual assault program. In addition to providing comprehensive training, YWCA offers a chance to make a positive impact during a difficult time in someone’s life.

“Our volunteers are the heart of the sexual assault program,” said Program Specialist Kai Hill. “Whether in a hospital or court setting, they support survivors of sexual assault with compassion and empathy. Their presence and ability to listen to and support survivors in the healing process is our purpose statement in action, ‘reducing the trauma for sexual assault survivors and their families.'”

An application, interview and pre-registration for spring training is required.
