Volunteer at the Centre

KSAC was staffed solely by volunteers from 1976 until 1985. We know the tremendous work that this powerful group did to ensure that we were able to formally become an agency. We will always honour those original volunteers who had a vision of support and safety for our community of survivors. 

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. 

We are currently looking for individuals who would like to volunteer as administrative support at our main office, and individuals wanting to support our public education and community events. We are also recruiting volunteers for our board of directors.

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.
