Volunteer Opportunities

The Compass Center volunteer teams are made up of over 35 volunteers from our community who want to help those affected by sexual and domestic abuse.

Court Watchers Program

Serves survivors of sexual assault and domestic violence

The Court Watchers Program supports victims of rape, sexual assault or domestic violence who are in protection order court. Volunteers record judge rulings and help the Victim Advocate assist survivors as needed. Volunteers may:

  • Observe protection order court and keep a record of rulings in cases
  • Provide outreach to victims of violence before or after a protection orderhearing
  • Give survivors information about services available at The Compass Center and in the community
