Volunteer

Becoming a Sexual Assault Advocate is a rewarding and meaningful volunteer experience, providing absolutely critical services to victims of sexual assault in our community. Our advocates accompany sexual assault survivors to the hospital or work with individuals who call into our crisis line. It is a great way to gain experience in the field of Human Services. All volunteers are required by state law to attend a 40-hour sexual assault advocacy training. These trainings are generally held once or twice a year.

If you are interested in our next training dates and becoming an advocate please fill out the Volunteer Application and return to Erin Naughton, Volunteer Coordinator. Any questions about this training can be directed to Erin by phone 218-726-1442ext.18 or email enaughton@pavsa.org
