Volunteer

Overview

Join Team WEAVE

Keeping our community safe is a priority. With ongoing shelter at home and social distancing requirements, WEAVE does not have immediate volunteer opportunities and is not accepting new volunteers at this time. We will resume volunteer orientations and trainings when public health orders are lifted and it is safe to do so. 

 

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.
