Volunteer for the National Sexual Assault Hotline or in Your Community

Volunteer in Your Community

Local sexual assault service providers answer calls placed to the National Sexual Assault Hotline 24/7, and offer critical support to survivors and their loved ones in their communities. These local providers are often looking for volunteer staff to perform a range of functions from administrative support, to communitiy organizing, to answering hotline calls. Search for opportunities in your area. 

Volunteer for the web-based Online Hotline

The National Sexual Assault Online Hotline, operated by RAINN, provides live, secure, anonymous crisis support to the growing number of people who prefer communicating online through a simple instant message format—giving those affected by sexual assault a safe place to turn to talk about what happened. 

As a trained volunteer you can: 

  • Provide much-needed support to victims of sexual assault and their friends and family members
  • Work from the comfort of your own home
  • Work shifts can be as short as one hour
  • Interact with experts and connect with other volunteers who care about this issue

At this time we are not accepting any applications. Please check back in early 2017 for new application and training dates. We encourage you to consider volunteering locally with your nearest sexual assault service provider. Search for local volunteer opportunities
