Volunteers' Commitment

STAND! Against Domestic Violence requires that all volunteers respect the privacy and confidentiality of those we serve, as well as the confidentiality of STAND! Against Domestic Violence locations. STAND! Against Domestic Violence also expects volunteers to maintain the agency as a clean and sober environment, free of violence and discrimination. We request that volunteers completing the Domestic Violence Counselor Certification Training commit to at least one year of agency involvement and expect fulfillment of all shift obligations, or timely notification of an inability to do so. As an agency, STAND! Against Domestic Violence continues to work toward ending oppression in the form of sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and adultism and encourages volunteers to do the same.
