Services Spotlight: Volunteers needed in NOLA!


Sometimes, you just have to brag. We at STAR are doing amazing things, and we want to share our progress and positive experiences with you.

This past year has been a big one for STAR! In the past six months, we have begun to expand services to New Orleans, recently launching a 24/7, sexual assault-specific hotline for the New Orleans area.

What YOU can do

To fulfill our mission of supporting survivors, improving systems response, and creating social change to end sexual violence, we at STAR rely on committed volunteer advocates to provide support to survivors.

Our next volunteer advocate training will take place in March 2016, so we are currently recruiting volunteers from the New Orleans area to apply! Volunteers undergo a 40-hour training consisting of online and in-person hours. In addition to this initial training, monthly volunteer meetings will be held to provide additional, follow-up support for your role as a hotline and/or medical advocate.

To become a sexual assault victim advocate and STAR volunteer in New Orleans, we ask that you fill out our online application or visit our website to find out more information. You may also contact Michaela Lovejoy, our Volunteer Coordinator, at (504) 407-0711 or to learn more.
