If you have a passion for advocacy, consider volunteering for the Haven Project!
Attend a monthly content-specific volunteer training (sexual violence, domestic/dating violence, consent, healthy relationships, bystander interventions, etc.) and assist with tabling for that month’s topic. Trainings are typically held in Suites on Maple
East in room G60. Trainings are offered on different days of the week to allow for changing schedules and participation. You can email email@example.com if you are interested in becoming a volunteer.
You will be added to the volunteer list, and you will receive information about upcoming opportunities.
Volunteers will be trained on the specific topic for that month and are never to be left alone at the information table (a peer educator, a graduate assistant, or a volunteer specialist will be with you). Volunteers can also assist with photography at
different events, along with distributing materials, hanging up information, chalking, and other tasks as needed.
If you are interested in becoming more than a volunteer, inquire about becoming a volunteer specialist. Volunteer specialists are students that have been involved and are called upon to help with tabling, assist at events, or even present Haven Project
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss interest in becoming a volunteer specialist.
