Volunteering with your local victim-serving organization can be a rewarding experience that helps you to learn and grow skills while helping victims through their hardest days.
Local victim-serving organizations across Alberta have support from volunteers who help in a number of ways. Volunteers support teams with a range of functions, including administrative and fundraising support, serving as members of their respective boards of directors, serving as victim advocates, and providing court support. Each team has unique needs, and may or may not need some of the support listed.
ICYMI on this page – victim advocates do a lot more than drink tea and give teddy bears. While each local organization will be able to provide with a list of their requirements for volunteers, you can count on needing to complete background checks, training, and also make a commitment to the organization about your availability.
