York County Children's Advocacy Center - Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Opportunities

Our goal at the Children's Advocacy Center (CAC) is to ensure that children are not re-victimized by the very system designed to protect them. All types of volunteers are needed to help us make the CAC of York County work for the children. Listed below are some volunteer opportunities that are flexible and allow for a range of time commitment, abilities and level of involvement.

  • Interview Assistant Volunteer
    volunteers greet families and assist with supervision of children in our Family Waiting Room, if necessary, while their parent or caregiver meets with the investigative team. Interview Assistant volunteers received special training and must complete child abuse clearances.
  • Building and Maintenance
    volunteers are needed to assist with any decorating or repair needs and help keep the Children's Advocacy Center beautiful
  • Community Outreach/Public Relations
    volunteers are needed to help with the publication of a quarterly newsletter, which will require skills such as layout and design and graphic arts. Volunteers can also assist at our booth/display at the mall, during conferences or other special events. Volunteers can also become part of a Speaker's Bureau to increase community awareness through public speaking engagements to civic clubs and other community groups.
  • Fundraising
    volunteers will assist in a variety of fundraising activities during the year and bring any new fundraising ideas to the CAC
  • Other possibilities
    volunteers are needed to serve in many other capacities as our center grows!
