WEAVE Volunteer Opportunities

Direct Services: Programs working directly with clients we serve. A criminal background check and graduation from our Peer Counselor Training is required to begin volunteering in direct services. Direct service programs include:

  • 24 hr. Support Line
  • Crisis Response Team
  • Counseling Intern – Master’s Level MFT and MSW
  • Legal Dept. Assistance
  • Safehouse Playcare
  • Safehouse General Assistance

Peer Counselor Training: A 69 hr. state-mandated course required for advocates working with survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. The training is offered two times per year during our winter session (Jan/Feb) and summer session (July/Aug). It is held Tues/Thurs evenings from 5:30pm-9pm and Saturday 8:30am-5pm. A phone screening and face-to-face interview will be conducted prior to admittance. While we want to accept all those who apply, we only have space to accept a handful of candidates each session. If your schedule does not allow you to attend the training, you will not be able to volunteer in the programs listed above.   

Indirect Services: Opportunities to help behind the scenes to support WEAVE and our clients. No educational requirements are needed for these programs. Indirect service programs include:

  • WEAVE Retail Stores – sizing/colorizing, helping donors, etc.
  • Special Events – Walk a Mile, Feast for WEAVE, Holiday Shop, etc.
  • Tabling/Outreach

WEAVE 101: A comprehensive 2-hour training required for those interested in any indirect service volunteer opportunities.
