Becoming a YWCA Clark County volunteer is one way to help your community. Volunteers learn how to take action and help people who are in crisis, meet and network with diverse community members, as well as become actively involved in improving the lives of Clark County residents.
This spring there is a strong need for adult volunteers to:
• Advocate for adult and youth victims of sexual assault;
• Represent the best interest of an abused or neglected child by becoming a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate);
• Assist youth who are transitioning out of foster care.
Other ongoing volunteer needs include providing resources and encouragement to inmates at the Clark County Jail, helping out in the Y's Care preschool classroom, and facilitating support groups for domestic violence survivors.
Everyone interested in learning about volunteer opportunities to attend the Introduction to Volunteer Service on Tuesday, April 6 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. in the agency's Community Room, 3609 Main St., Vancouver. Several YWCA Clark County programs will offer free training for new volunteers in April and May. For more information, see www.ywcaclarkcounty.org or call 360 696 0167.
