RVAP offers volunteer positions in direct service (in person and crisis line advocacy) and prevention (UI campus or Johnson County community). Our volunteers are integral to the work that we do. They respond to survivors in hospitals and police stations, answer crisis lines, facilitate workshops on campus, and teach in middle schools and high schools. Volunteers begin by specializing in one area and attend the respective training.
