Become a Volunteer Advocate!
We need volunteers to serve on the 24-hour crisis hotline and be available to accompany survivors to hospital exams and police interviews.
Our volunteer advocate training is FREE intensive education on the psychological, medical and legal implications of sexual assault, as well as other forms of oppression and how they are interconnected. Crisis intervention and counseling skills are developed through discussion, role playing and feedback. During this 40 hour training, WASAC and community partners team up to provide a detailed synopsis of the demand for response in Sedgwick County.
After completing the application and screening process, our volunteers are required to attend the 40 hour training session and complete 2 buddy shifts. Volunteers are asked to commit for a minimum of 1 year and sign up for 2 shifts each month on the crisis line. Volunteers must be 21 years of age.
