The insight and courage of survivors can make them strong advocates for other survivors and their families and friends. We have also found that survivors who volunteer or intern at the Collins Center may need extra support. The topics we cover can be difficult for everyone, but can be especially challenging for those who have been assaulted. If you are a survivor, please be aware of the importance of self-care. The volunteer coordinator would be happy to talk with you in confidence if there are specific topics that you have concerns about. If you are working with a therapist or counselor, it may be a good idea to talk with him/her about volunteering or interning with the Collins Center. We want to ensure that your time with us is a positive and supportive experience.
