Metro Brief

On September 15, 2015

The Victim Assistance and Sexual Assault Program is looking for volunteers to assist sexual victims and their families. Interviews are currently being held for a September 2015 training session.

In 2014, outreach volunteers donated more than 10,000 hours to victims of rape and sexual assault in Montgomery County, providing 24-hour crisis counseling and companion services at local hospitals and police stations,

All potential volunteers must attend the training program, which covers crisis intervention skills and the specialized knowledge of the emotional, medical and legal issues that victims face. Volunteers must commit to serve in an on-call capacity for one year,  for a 12-hour shift or two six-hour shifts per week. All volunteers must be at least 21 years old, a Montgomery County resident with a valid driver’s license and immediate access to transportation. Bi-lingual volunteers are encouraged to apply.

For more information or to arrange an interview, call the Montgomery County Victim Assistance and Sexual Assault Program at 240.777.1355, or go to www.montgomerycountymd.gov/vasap.
