The Sexual Assault Resource Center is a non-profit organization that relies on people in the community to help sustain and improve their programs. The organization has many areas of service available to volunteers. Volunteer opportunities include Support Line Advocate, Community Outreach and Tabling, Education Program Volunteer, Latina Program Case Management, Latina Services and Outreach Program, Development and House Party Fundraising, and Office Support and Small Projects. For more details about these opportunities visit SARC's website.
SARC's greatest need for volunteers is on their 24-hour Support Line. These Female Advocates offer immediate support, information, and resources to survivors on the phone. They also respond to in-person survivors by seeking medical care, reporting assaults, or helping survivors who need support through sexual exploitation and trafficking.
SARC also organizes an annual benefit walk, Walk a Mile in Her Shoes: The International Men's March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence. This is a great option for men to directly volunteer with SARC. During the walk, men are asked to wear high heels to think critically about how men and women are raised differently and to get the community to think critically about gender and sexual issues.
