Volunteer & Internship
COVID-19 Update: Our volunteer program was temporarily halted due to the Pandemic. The program is now open. Applicants may be able to begin hours on a case by case basis. Multiple aspects of risk will be evaluated.
Thank you so much for your interest in becoming a volunteer. Volunteers are a critical part of the CAC team! We have diverse, flexible, and meaningful opportunities for those who are interested in volunteering their time and unique talents toward restoring dignity, hope, and trust to children traumatized by abuse.
Interns are welcome and will go through similar application and training as volunteers. Depending upon need, we may be able to tailor your intern experience to meet varied intern requirements for your program. Internships are available on a limited basis. We are are not currently accepting applications for clinical therapeutic internships or practicums.
