Volunteer

 

The Center could not do the work we do in our community without volunteers. We rely on volunteers to support clients, deliver education programs, and provide administrative support.

  • The Board of Directors is the governing body of the Center. Members work with the staff to meet the mission and vision of the Center.
  • Community Educators present programs to the community, most often elementary school students. Programs raise awareness about sexual violence and teach prevention skills.
  • Companions provide support and resources to survivors of sexual violence.
  • Office Volunteers assist with tasks and special projects in the Center’s business offices.

 

“Working and training with the OCRCC has been such a personally enriching and rewarding experience… After presenting a program, I get to go home knowing that I have helped give children the knowledge to protect themselves and perhaps made it more comfortable for them to seek help: Wow!”

- Cindy, Community Educator

As a volunteer, you make an appreciable impact on our community. And we need your help more than ever.

In past years, we have served about 400 clients per year. But this year, we served over 570 clients, and we saw each of those clients an average of 5 times. We need Companions and Bilingual Companions to help us provide services, especially considering this large increase. Additionally, we reach about 10,000 youth and adults each year with our education programs. We need Community Educators to help us provide over 700 programs each year.

There is always a job to be done here, and we need your help to do it!
