Who can be a CAC volunteer?
Anyone can volunteer his or her services at the CAC upon successful completion
of the written application process. The process includes an application,
personal references, a pledge of confidentiality, civil and criminal background
checks and an interview. Adults ages 18 and older can have direct contact
with the children.
Frequently Asked Questions about the Volunteer Program:
How much time is involved?
Due to the sensitive issues that bring child victims to the CAC, each
volunteer must attend a brief volunteer orientation. Once volunteers
have been trained, they will work with the volunteer coordinator to
develop a schedule, if applicable. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities,
some with very flexible schedules. Because the CAC relies on the volunteer
program, we ask that anyone considering giving their time understand
that it is a serious commitment.
What are some volunteer needs?
Because of the range of professionals working together at the CAC, we
offer a wide assortment of volunteer opportunities.
Is the CAC a safe place?
The CAC is a secure facility and admittance is by appointment only.
Alleged perpetrators are not brought or allowed on the premises.
