Volunteer Opportunities?

Volunteers work with BAWAR in various capacities, depending on their interests, availability, and skills. Volunteers who become California State Certified Rape Crisis Counselors staff our 24-hour sexual assault crisis line, which is available to all survivors of sexual assault and their significant others. Our counselors also provide accompaniment to rape survivors for hospital and police proceedings. While other volunteers have helped us with many things including office support, fundraising, computer assistance, and other special projects.
