College Volunteer Program

Welcome to SafeHaven's College Volunteer page! Volunteering during college is a wonderful opportunity for you to gain valuable experience for a future career as you provide support to SafeHaven’s programs for women and children seeking safety from a violent situation.

The College Student Volunteer Program runs from September 1st- May 30th. During that time, volunteers are expected to complete a minimum of 50 service hours. At the completion of 50 hours each year, students will have the option of a one-time shadowing opportunity with a SafeHaven staff person in their field of interest/study at the end of the spring semester.

The number of student placements available in the program varies each year depending on how many departments sign on to participate.

Applications are accepted April 15th-June 1st. After the June 1st deadline, applications will be reviewed and individuals will be selected to interview for the program after summer. You must be a current sophomore, junior or senior in college.

After an interview has been completed, the final decision process will occur. Those individuals chosen for the 2019/2020 program will be notified via email.

Please send all volunteer applications to Courtney Scull, Community Coordinator, at cscull@safehaventc.org.
