Volunteer Training

Volunteers are a vital part of Cleveland Rape Crisis Center. Each year they handle more than 3,000 phone calls to our 24-hour crisis and support phone, chat and text hotline. Thank you for allowing us to provide essential services to survivors of rape and sexual abuse and those who support them on a 24-hour basis at no cost.

Volunteering with Cleveland Rape Crisis Center is an opportunity to become an active part of the movement to end sexual violence. Volunteering allows you to strengthen your resume and gain valuable experience, and our volunteers report that their experience is extremely personally rewarding.
