Volunteer Advocacy

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

PAVSA offers excellent internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. Interns can be involved in many of our programs based on their interests and availability. These opportunities include, but are not limited to: crisis line and hospital advocacy, support groups, outreach groups, community education, legal advocacy, youth advocacy, and organizing events and awareness campaigns.

If you are interested in an internship at PAVSA, please submit a cover letter and resume to Vanessa at vlebens@pavsa.org. In the cover letter, please answer the following questions:

  • What are the requirements for your internship? (ex: hours, timeline)
  • What would you bring to an internship at PAVSA?
  • What would you hope to learn at PAVSA?

Application deadlines for each semester are:
