Become a Volunteer Advocate

STAR® is looking for highly motivated and passionate individuals interested in working with sexual trauma survivors in our community. As a small non-profit organization, we rely on committed community members to provide support to survivors on our 24/7 hotline and accompany survivors to the hospital for forensic exams during day and night.

As a volunteer, STAR® will provide you with extensive training and educational opportunities, a supportive network of staff members and fellow volunteers, and an opportunity to help survivors heal and move past their trauma. Volunteering is a great resume-builder and a way to learn new skills! Click here to submit a volunteer application
