Volunteering with the Anti-Violence Project offers an opportunity to make a real difference in our communities, and gives you a chance to learn new skills, share skills you have, stay up to date on community issues, and network with fellow volunteers, our staff and affiliates. Volunteering with us also presents an opportunity to learn about creating a safe and oppression-free space.

There are so many ways to be a part of our essential work and eliminate violence in all its forms.

Become a Hotline Volunteer

Join our team of certified hotline volunteers to support survivors of violence. Our 40-hour Hotline training course is held three times annually and provides participants with skills and tools to support LGBTQ survivors of violence.  At the end of training, participants are certified as Rape Crisis Counselors by New York State Department of Health to be Rape Crisis Counselors on our 24-hour bilingual (English/Spanish) Hotline.

Volunteers who complete the training must make a year-long commitment to providing hotline coverage with AVP once a month.

To find out more information, or to sign up for the next training course email Training Coordinator Lolan Sevilla at lsevilla@avp.org or call 212-714-1184 during normal business hours.
