Thank you so much for your interest in volunteering with Brave Step. Our goal is to strengthen adults impacted by sexual abuse by providing meaningful steps on their healing journey. We design personalized care plans and offer inspiration, education and connection for survivors and their loved ones.

Volunteers are essential to our success. Whether you have 30 minutes or three hours to contribute, we can utilize your passion and skills.

Lets Get Started

To kick off your volunteer relationship with Brave Step, please complete the volunteer application. The application may be completed in two ways.

Please note:

  • All volunteers must fill out the Volunteer Application including references.  Once the Volunteer Application is submitted, it will be reviewed by the Volunteer Director.  Depending on the volunteer roles available at that time, your skills and ability levels will be considered in best placing you in a serving role.   
  • At times, it may be necessary to conduct a face-to-face interview.  Any interview will be set up with the Volunteer Director.
