Volunteers play a critical role in WIT’s services. From our early beginnings as a volunteer-driven feminist collective to now, WIT has always relied on people who have a passion for making a difference in their community.

If you are interested and available, we want to work with you and make sure that your time at WIT is a fulfilling one.

Please review our available volunteer positions and fill out the application below if you are interested in volunteering with us. We will follow up with you by email once we have received and reviewed your application and resume.

Requirements vary by position, but you may need: 45-hour Domestic Violence Advocate Training, FBI Clearance, PA Child Abuse History Clearance, and/or a Criminal Background Check.

Current Volunteer Opportunities:

LifeLine Telephone CounselOR*

We are looking for volunteers to staff our LifeLine, Monday through Friday, 9 AM to 5 PM.

LifeLine telephone counseling volunteers play a crucial role at WIT. As a LifeLine volunteer, you will provide supportive phone counseling to those who call to receive support, resources, advocacy, and information and education about domestic violence and substance abuse.

*Since this position involves working directly with clients, volunteers must first complete a 45-hour Domestic Violence Advocate Training. WIT hosts trainings once in the spring and once in the fall during regular business hours. Contact WIT's Volunteer Coordinator at bbrown@helpwomen.org for more information.  

Play Care

Play Care volunteers make it possible for clients to attend their counseling sessions and peer support groups. As a Play Care Volunteer, you will provide play care for children at WIT’s offices during business hours.

WIT Ambassador

This is an opportunity for you to raise awareness in your community about domestic violence. Volunteers represent WIT in their communities by tabling at various events, connecting people to WIT’s free and confidential services for domestic violence and substance abuse, and facilitating connections with other community agencies.
