Volunteers

We truly appreciate your interest in contributing time to DOVE! The most common ways to volunteer are to join our Board of Directors, or to become part of our Volunteer team. 

In order to realize our vision of a community dedicated to eliminating violence and oppression, reducing the impact of trauma, and believing and supporting all survivors, we need Volunteers! 

DOVE offers Volunteer training approximately once per year for community members. This required training totals 15 hours, spread out over a few months. Topics include:

  • domestic violence
  • sexual assault
  • intersections of abuse and systemic barriers
  • cultural considerations & working with survivors of color
  • youth relationship abuse and child abuse
  • legal systems
  • advocate role & procedures
  • vicarious trauma

Once certified, you will help provide support for survivors with relocation assistance and assistance with various programming needs (participation in educational videos, childcare during support group meetings, etc.).

We encourage community members who identify as Deaf, DeafBlind, DeafDisabled, or Hard of Hearing; Black, Indigenous/Native, or People of Color; LGBTQI; and/or as survivors of abuse to consider joining our Volunteer team. If interested, please contact our Resource Advocate, Daniel Deboncoeur at Daniel@deafdove.org to set up a time to chat and determine appropriate fit for our Volunteer program or fill out our Volunteer Google Form, and Daniel will reach out to you.
