Why volunteer at the Niagara Sexual Assault Centre?

Because you want to contribute to a cause, to a person, to your community.

Be part of a team that offers support and assistance to survivors, family and friends who have been impacted by sexual violence and sexual harassment.

Our centre would not be able to carry out the work we do without the assistance of our incredible team of volunteers. Volunteers contribute over 7,000 hours per year to those we serve in Niagara.

Becoming a Volunteer

We offer a comprehensive training for our volunteers, which covers topics including, but not limited to, consent, child sexual abuse, male sexual abuse, rape, rape drugs, sexual harassment, myths, self-harm, PTSD, trauma, crisis intervention, communication strategies, medical and legal information and community resources.

**Please note that COVID-19 has impacted our Volunteer program and some areas may not be available.
