Volunteer Opportunities

Bay Area Women’s Center welcomes the assistance of volunteers and interns to aid us in providing an array of quality services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.  Volunteer and intern assistance is incorporated into every aspect of the agency from maintenance of the facility to direct client services.  We accept volunteers as young as age 18 and provide basic training then on-the-job shadowing. 

Volunteering your time at the BAWC is rewarding, it can help you meet educational requirements, and gain valuable work experience.  Individuals and groups can volunteer their time on a weekly, monthly, or on-call basis.  BAWC operates 24 hours a day and offers flexible hours that coordinate with most schedules.

Become A Volunteer

Volunteers are vital to BAWC and we would not be in existence without the work of volunteers who started our agency in 1975. We will thrive only as long as we have volunteers to complete our caring-compassionate staff.
