Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in serving as a volunteer and your willingness to contribute valuable time. Our goal is to empower adults impacted by sexual violence; and volunteers are essential to reaching that goal. Whether you have 30 minutes or three hours to contribute, we will 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 online. 

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. We want to provide you with the best opportunity to use your skills and abilities to not only serve our clients, but to also encourage you to seek your full potential.  Not all volunteer roles will be suitable for all volunteers.  Volunteers will be assessed and placed per the Volunteer Director’s recommendations. Volunteers can fill more than one role if approved by the Volunteer Director.  
  • Depending on the volunteer role being applied for, your references may be contacted, and a background check fee may apply.  Additionally, if your volunteer role changes while serving with Brave Step, your references may then be contacted, and a background check fee applied.
