Volunteer opportunities include:

BWSS Crisis Prevention Volunteers

Crisis Line & Intake Program

Our Crisis line doesn’t get answered without the help of volunteers. This volunteer opportunity is for women who see themselves ready to make a difference by working directly with survivors of violence. After completing an intensive 12 week training program, volunteers answer our intake and crisis lines providing information to women and the community, facilitating support groups for women survivors as well as delivering workshops to high school students on dating violence. The majority of this work is done weekdays, during the day.
