If you are interested in speaking out against sexual violence, contact
the Education Training Coordinator and join the Speaker's Bureau.
This group presents prevention and education information to
people throughout the community. NWARC has a plethora of
informational materials which can be used for presentations of varying
lengths. We are currently working with public schools and other
facilities for adolescents and conducting a week-long program during
which time we talk about date rape drugs, domestic violence, males and
sexual assault, incest, sexual violence and the
Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender Community, and more.
Representing the agency at
community, volunteer, and health fairs, as
well as other special events throughout the year is incredibly
important. Many people have no idea what to do after being
assaulted, and it is important that we spread our name throughout the
community so people know that we provide services free of charge.
NWARC offers training for
those interested in being advocates for
sexual assault survivors. If you would like to volunteer in this
capacity, you are required to attend a 12-hour initial training,
complete 2-3 on
call shifts per month and attend a monthly meeting. While
on call, you may be required to meet a survivor at the hospital or
police station, or a person may just call requesting information.
For more information, contact the Victim Services Coordinator.
NWARC Board of Directors
Our Board is comprised
completely of volunteer members. It meets once a month to help
guide the organization through subcommittees
and interaction with the staff. Two advocates also serve as Board
Members. The Board is responsible for one fundraiser per
year. For more information, contact the Executive Director.
