DCCV is in need of caring individuals who are available during weekdays for internship or volunteer positions with our Hotline or The Translation & Interpreting Center.
Students of social work, psychology, human services and other related fields are needed to assist in the hotline providing case management, information, advocacy, counseling and support groups for victims of crime. Community volunteers are always welcome.
The Translation & Interpreting Center seeks graduate or undergraduate interns to assist with marketing and public relations as well as community volunteers to assist with phones, greeting customers and data entry.
All interns and community volunteers attend our 40-hour training class. Our training is held three times a year, in January, May and September. Applications are accepted at any time.
