Creating Change – Volunteer!
Center for Domestic Peace offers a number of ways that you can volunteer to help domestic violence survivors, and we provide training and support so that you can be as effective as possible. Our volunteers provide domestic violence counseling on our hotlines, facilitate support groups, and participate in our speaker’s bureau or community action teams to make a difference in their neighborhood and workplace.
Some volunteer opportunities, such as being a hotline advocate or support group facilitator, require a 40-hour training course and certification. Other opportunities, such as fundraising and events, do not. We also have youth and young adult opportunities!
Please call 415.457.2464 for more information about our volunteer opportunities.
