As a volunteer with MSCASA, you decide how involved you want to be. Maybe you only have a couple of hours a month, or perhaps you’re looking for a couple of hours a week. Either way, there’s something for you with MSCASA or our state-wide crisis centers. The tasks accomplished by our volunteers range from helping around the office to helping create entire programs. We can also provide documentation of your volunteer time for credit with your school or other organization. Here are some of the ways you can help:
Administrative Support – Help out around the MSCASA office by preparing mailings, stocking and maintaining the resource library, or responding to information requests from coalition members.
Communications – Create layouts or graphic design for flyers, take pictures or video at events or write press releases and guest editorials for website. A writing sample and prior training in the area of sexual assault may be required.
Direct Services – Here at MSCASA, we do not provide direct services to victims; however, you can train with on of the state’s nine local rape crisis centers to be a victim advocate. Please click here to find a crisis center in your area to volunteer for Direct Services.
Campus Intern – Research college and university campus policies, victim services, prevention programs, law enforcement response and coordinated response procedures to identify trends and best practices with addressing violence against women on campus. The intern’s research will be used in developing training materials and in delivering technical assistance to campuses. If you are interested in this internship, please email your resume and a writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If there is a talent, resource or idea you believe will help break the silence about sexual violence, contact MSCASA to be a volunteer by emailing email@example.com.
