    Volunteer Opportunities

    Survivor Project is a young organization with a small budget, and is maintained through the work of many wonderful volunteers. We believe in modifying tasks to fit into needs and interests of our volunteers, rather than the other way around. We believe in creating a survivor-positive working environment in which unique needs and concerns of volunteers who are survivors of domestic and sexual violence (as well as needs arising from disabilities) are accommodated. Read the (non-definitive) list of potential volunteer tasks below and contact us if you are interested in helping us.
