Bay Area Women’s Center welcomes the assistance of volunteers and interns to aid us in providing an array of quality services to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Volunteer and intern assistance is incorporated into every aspect of the agency from maintenance of the facility to direct client services. We accept volunteers as young as age 18 and provide basic training then on-the-job shadowing.

Individuals and groups can volunteer their time on a weekly, monthly, or on-call basis. BAWC operates 24 hours a day and offers flexible hours that coordinate with most schedules.
