SVC is Hiring
The Sexual Violence Center is seeking applications to fill the position of Carver/Scott Program Coordinator. The person in this role coordinates our agency's programs and services across the two Western Surburban counties of Carver and Scott and ensures that residents of these counties have access to the same quality and scope of support services as do residents of Minneapolis. We are looking for someone with a passion to reach communities in Carver and Scott! Applications are due July 12, 2018.
The Sexual Violence Center is accepting applications to fill the new position of Advocacy Organizer. Do you get excited by spreadsheets? Does organizing details make your heart beat faster with happiness? Then we want to talk to you. This new role on our staff will provide the organizational support that keeps our agency running: the Advocacy Organizer coordinates the flow of information, schedules and direct service statistics that allow our advocates to reach more people in crisis with SVC services. Applications are due by July 17, 2018 but will be reviewed as they are received and a shortlist may be developed prior to that date.
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.

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.
