SVC is Hiring!
The Sexual Violence Center is looking for a program coordinator to lead our agency's work in Carver and Scott counties. SVC offers mobile service delivery throughout Carver and Scott counties: we bring our advocacy services to the victim/survivors in court, hospital settings and other facilities in places most convenient to the victim/survivors. The Carver/Scott Program Coordinator will build upon SVC’s reputation of two decades delivering services in these counties. This is a tremendous opportunity for someone who thrives on building programs, pushing for change and increasing agency capacity to improve people’s lives. This opportunity is only available to candidates currently residing in either Carver County or Scott County, or with strong connections to those communities. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
SVC seeks a creative, energetic teacher/trainer to fill the newly-created full-time staff position of Education Program Coordinator. This advocate will lead our sexual violence awareness-raising interventions in schools and work with school administrators and teachers in order to reach a growing population of students with critical messages about sexual violence, consent and healthy relationships. Applications are due October 12, 2016.
Stand Up Against Rape Culture
The Sexual Violence Center recognizes the insidious and harmful effects of rape culture upon our communities. Like any culture, we all play some role in perpetuating it. And we can all play a role in changing it.
Become an Advocate
Do you want an experience that will change your life? Become a part of our social change vision and help eradicate Sexual Violence! We are always in need of passionate volunteers to provide direct services, answer the crisis line and respond to medical advocacies. We provide over 40 hours of advocacy training in line with state guidelines that will prepare you to join us to stand up against sexual violence. SVC offers this training three times (beginning January, May and September) every year.
Join the Board of Directors
We currently have openings on our Board of Directors and are seeking a diverse, enthusiastic group of candidates. We are particularly interested in new members with marketing, finance, technology, non-profit management, or fundraising experience, as well as experience with social justice issues and sexual violence.
Participate in Special Initiatives and Events
Backpack and Underwear Drive
(Even though the initial drive has finished - we are still collecting underwear at SVC indefinitely!) — Often, when a person receives an evidentiary exam after a sexual assault, their underwear is kept for evidence. SVC is partnering with Sexual Assault Resource Service to collect new underwear for patients of all genders so they may have a pair to wear home that feels right for them.
