VOLUNTEER AT THE CENTRE

For more information on the next Advance Volunteer Training please email ksac@nexicom.net. 

Kawartha Sexual Assault Centre recruits volunteers on an ongoing basis and offers three levels of Volunteer Training depending on the interest level of potential volunteers. Volunteering at the Centre is a very rewarding and meaningful experience that touches the lives of survivors of sexual violence and the people who support their healing.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please complete our introductory online training and fill out the volunteer request form at the end of the online training. 

I have volunteered for KSAC for the past four years. Sexual assault is such a violation for each victim in so many different and significant ways. I can make a difference for callers when I listen deeply to them, and provide support, important information, and resources as they navigate their uncharted healing journey.

Some callers are in immediate crisis, others are telling their experience out loud for the first time. Some callers have flashbacks and need support in coping. Other callers are simply “checking in”.

Whatever the nature of the call, I can assist competently and confidently and confidentially thanks to my extensive KSAC training and the wisdom of my own personal healing journey through sexual assault.
