People Against Rape Volunteer Advocate Training
"Please don't leave me." This is what our volunteers hear in the emergency room time and time again. In the hours after the trauma of rape, victims need someone to stand by them. That is what People Against Rape (PAR) has done since 1974. The services that we provide to victims in the Tricounty area are done so by volunteer effort. PAR is currently searching for caring compassionate citizens to fill this crucial role.
You can make a difference by helping rape victims in our community by responding to crisis calls, accompanying rape survivors to the emergency department at MUSC for their evidentiary exam and providing referrals for adult victims of sexual assault. We need more volunteer advocates!
PAR will provide the necessary training in a session to be held January 23 through the 26 (Thursday and Friday from 6:00pm to 8:00 pm; Saturday and Sunday from 8:30a to 5pm). If you, or someone you know, is able to devote 24 hours per month to serving Tri-County rape victims, we would love to talk with you about PAR's activities in greater detail. There is a $25 fee for training materials and a SLED check.
