Volunteering with Aspen

Volunteers play an important role in our Aspen Victim Advocacy Services teams. Volunteers staff the 24-hour victim advocacy phone line and respond to calls from law enforcement, hospitals, and other providers. Our advocates provide support, information, reassurance, and referrals to survivors of sexual assault and their families.

Watch the video in the link below to hear from some of our volunteers about what advocates do, and why they feel so passionate about their roles. If you'd like to get involved as a volunteer in Yakima County, contact Kim at (509) 576-4326 to complete an application. No experience is necessary to apply—all of our volunteers go through 40 hours of training before starting work. The next core training starts on October 17th, so call Kim today to become a volunteer advocate and make a positive difference in your community.
