Please note that any individual seeking an opportunity that involves working directly with clients must complete the volunteer training held three times a year. (January, May and September.) Our volunteer coordinator works with both community members as well as students seeking placement for internships or practicums for school credit. Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis, but please submit your paperwork as soon as possible to find placement for the upcoming semester.
Groups can get involved with the Community Education program by participating in public awareness, outreach, and can also work with EVE's Resource Development Director to provide support at annual fundraisers or organize an event of their own. Groups are also encouraged to collect or create donated items for EVE's programs. EVE is always open to creative ideas and will work with the skills you bring to the table to find a great placement. Contact us to find out more ways you can help support survivors.
EVE gladly accepts community service volunteers who need to complete probationary hours or to finish court mandated workshops. While we do ask for sensitive information, we treat all applicants equally and appreciate the help from those who choose EVE as their choice of placement. Community service volunteers work with our Facilities Supervisor to help maintain the the safety, security, sanitation and maintenance of the shelter. Duties may include light to moderate cleaning, donation organization, landscaping and maintenance repairs. Community Service applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
Meet Some Difference Makers
I enjoy volunteering at EVE because I love doing my part to empower women who are survivors of domestic violence as well as educate the community on important issues like domestic violence, sexual assault, and healthy relationships. Being able to go out in the community and help Leah with planning and participating in events really helps me realize what I want to do in my future while being able to promote positive communities.
I love volunteering with End Violent Encounters because it is a nice placed to make some real impact with some of the most amazing people I have ever met. I’ve learned a lot about myself through volunteering, with children and the survivors, and the more time I spend volunteering with EVE, the more I feel like I am actually making a difference every day, for an issue I am very passionate about.The connections I have made here are amazing, and the reason I keep coming back every week.
I enjoy volunteering with E.V.E because I have a chance to help the often invisible party of a crime, the victim. It also gives me a chance to help my community and learn the justice system.
