Volunteer/Career Opportunities

Volunteering

Our focus is to offer protection and quality services to victims and their children through the operation of a safe and secure shelter and outreach programs, offering assistance, counseling, and transitional support while educating the community and raising awareness.

Every day, volunteers help us achieve our mission in a variety of ways:

At our thrift shoppes…we can use your help in our stockroom to sort, size, tag and hang clothing that will go on our sales floor, which is the perfect activity for fashionistas and small groups.

Also, volunteers are needed on our sales floor.  If you able to commit to sharing a few hours each week on a regular basis, or you’re a people person that likes to keep things organized, this is a great fit for you. (Must be 16 years old or older to volunteer.)

To volunteer at our thrift shoppes, fill out this Volunteer and Intern Application Form and contact Phyllis Morley at phyllism@bettygriffincenter.org to find out more.

As a sexual assault victim advocate…our Sexual Assault Victim Recovery Program is currently recruiting on-call volunteers to provide victim advocacy and court advocacy. Advocates are available 24/7 to talk with domestic and/or sexual abuse survivors, their families and friends.

As a sexual assault victim advocate you will be accompanying victims of sexual assault to the Rape Care Unit located at Flagler Hospital. At the RCU, victims can receive a forensic medical exam, make a report to law enforcement and get connected to helping resources.

As an advocate, not only will you be providing information regarding victim’s rights and resources, but you will be providing emotional support during their RCU visit and assisting victims in navigating their healing journey. Training is provided at no cost and includes both an online training and a training at the Rape Care Unit

These volunteers are required to participate in 30 hours of domestic violence classroom training and 30 hours of online sexual assault training to enable them to acquire privilege and confidentiality, and provide them with background information on domestic and sexual violence. If you are interested in working directly with our participants and answering our 24-hour help line this training is required. Please email Alison Hashaw at alisonh@bettygriffincenter.org or call her at 904-808-8544, extension 112 for information on upcoming training class dates.

In your community…you can host a collection drive at your school, community group, or faith-based organization for food, gently used clothes, personal hygiene items, or supplies from our wish list. To support the center in this way, contact Kenlie Herring at kenlieh@bettygriffincenter.org.

In an office…if you prefer administrative work, we can always use help with filing, computer information or paperwork on a weekly schedule. If you’re interested in this volunteer opportunity, or working with participants, please contact Inez Stitch-Peel at inezp@bettygriffincenter.org.

With our participants…please note that volunteers who wish to work directly with our participants, or on the 24-hour help line, are required to participate in a 30-hour domestic violence classroom training and 30 hours of online sexual assault training to provide them with background information on domestic and sexual violence.  This training is mandatory.
