RVAP offers volunteer positions in direct service (in person and crisis line advocacy), prevention (UI campus or Johnson County community), and our rural service area (Cedar, Iowa, Des Moines, Henry, Lee, Washington, & Van Buren Counties). 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.

If this sounds like the right opportunity for you, apply online here. We encourage volunteers to review training dates prior to applying. All training dates are mandatory.
