We truly appreciate your interest in contributing time to DOVE! The most common ways to volunteer are to join our Board of Directors, or Volunteer to support DOVE community events and activities, survivor childcare during DOVE Resiliency workshops, and behind the scenes efforts. Volunteer responsibilities are limitless and can be tailored to best suit your areas of contribution.
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 is always looking for Volunteers and also offer a specialized Volunteer training. 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
- vicarious trauma
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 email Office@deafdove.org to set up a time to chat and determine appropriate fit for our Volunteer team.
