Individual Volunteer Opportunities

Before applying for an individual volunteer opportunity please review our volunteer eligibility requirements. Note: All volunteers on-site must be at least 18 years of age.

Volunteer Spokesperson

Women’s Advocates needs the help of a volunteer spokesperson to accompany our staff at corporate, university, and community information fairs. A volunteer spokesperson would attend these information fairs solo or with a Women’s Advocates staff member, provide helpful marketing materials to passers-by, and share basic information about our program to inquirers.
